hey fellows, i'm trying to tune my laptop here (IBM T22 running 4.7-STABLE with X 4.2.1) and had heard that upping the priority would help increase responsiveness under X.
because i use startx from a console when i want to use X, and don't use XDM, i've been trying to work out which script to modify in order to startx with a priority of -1, but without starting as root. i've had a couple of failed attempts, so thought i'd ask here to see if anyone had any clues. also, does anyone have any other performance tips for a laptop? i've got 256 meg of ram, so was wondering if putting /tmp on a mfs would help.. i've had a look through the tuning(7) manpage, and some other docs, but they mostly seem to talk about tuning for a busy network server. is tuning actually possible for a workstation (ie, is FreeBSD already optimised for these types of machines), and does it offer a substantial difference? i'm currently using the machine for general tasks, web browsing with galeon, viewing media in mplayer, and endlessly compiling to feed my portupgrade fetish :) any tips would be gratefully received. stay frosty, ian -- :: darq.net /#/ :: live to kourier, kourier to live To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
