Commands slow to respond [fixed]

Okay, so I upgraded my system to an Athalon 2700+, 1.5 GB RAM, with a new motherboard. I'm using my previous Arch installed on hda.

On login, it takes about 20 seconds to prompt me for my password, another 20 for the bash prompt and 5-10 seconds to output the results of the ls command. This happens for every app I run.

Most apps work fine once started, but pacman takes an eternity to update with -Sy.

Anyone have any ideas as to why this might be?

Re: Commands slow to respond [fixed]

does your MB support the FSB of that proccessesor and is it set to that speed on the MB if not already set to auto?

Re: Commands slow to respond [fixed]

similar issue here

Maybe either re install for that hardware config, or try and work through any error msgs you get and adjust errant modules accordingly.

some possible things to check

uname -a  see what proc your system thinks is inplace
lshwd for  hardware
dmesg for boot up logs.

What was your previous setup?  Were you using an Intel based system or another AMD setup?

Re: Commands slow to respond [fixed]

It was AMD as well.  I finally got through a pacman -Su and my system is now running like greased lighning.  If I had to guess, I'd say some config file was causing the trouble. Pacman probably overwrote it on upgrade which fixed it.  Thanks for the help everyone.
