Default Linux is lagging

Aloha!

I've been using linux serious for 4 months and I've experienced some lag.
When I for example surf the net with mozilla-firebird it laggs when I scroll down, or when I for example moves a window, or write in that window.

I got a tip that I should use hdparm, and I did. It got to get a bit better, but not quite.

So now I'm wondering if it might be something with the nvidia driver?
Is there any common settings or problems related to lag in linux?

thanks in advance //SPENEN

Hi,

well, without knowing anything about your setup, it is hard to guess, where your lag comes from.

Maybe not enough ram?
X setup f* up?
nvidia-driver&glx setup f* up?
Simply a slow box?
A lot of demons running in the background?
gnome?

Hi,

ok, your hardware is more than adequate.

Are you using 2.4 or 2.6?

With 2.6 some lagging in the first seconds is normal.

In both cases glxinfo will tell you, if glx is loaded correctly. In /proc/drivers/nvidia you can check AGP status and some other things. XF86.0.log will show you errors.

Thanks for taking your time! =)

Here's what my /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status looks like:

Status: Enabled
Driver: AGPGART
AGP Rate: 4x
Fast Writes: Disabled
SBA: Disabled

I'm using 2.4 and I will try 2.6, just had some troubles with the nvidia driver in 1.6, but I havn't tried so much yet.

And here are some errors in the XF86 log:

(WW) The directory "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic" does not exist.
Entry deleted from font path.
(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such device)
(II) LoadModule: "pex5"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module pex5
(II) UnloadModule: "pex5"
(EE) Failed to load module "pex5" (module does not exist, 0)
(II) LoadModule: "xie"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module xie
(II) UnloadModule: "xie"
(EE) Failed to load module "xie" (module does not exist, 0)

I've googled them, and it seems like I just should ignore them.

And finaly, the glxinfo looks good, no errors or strange things.
I'll try more tomorrow

thank you so much!
