I am not sure where to put this......

Recommended Posts

But a strange problem has popped up.......

Last week and a half, if my Linux machine is not used regularly

it wont connect to the network, and programs load VERY slowly.....


I run Folding@Home on there, and run Apache web server for a small site,

my Fold clients I run nice -1, I have done this since I been running Folding.

The install is not very old, and the kids do like some of the games, but they

have been playing on there since I started using Linux on this machine and,

Like I said before, this problem has just started.......

Any ideas what might be happening?????


System Specs:

Abit BP6 366@561mhz

Linksys 10/100 NIC

Voodoo 3 2000 PCI

WD 8.4gig HDD (linux install HDD)

Seagate 3.2gig HDD (win98 install)

350 watt PSU

The first thing you can do is run 'top' to see if there is some resources eater running in your machine. Also a 'free' report to see how is your memory working might help

Ok did that, the only thing I see hogging the CPU's is Folding, which is

nothing new.......

Plenty of ram left free.....

I had to reset the router recently, and then I changed the DHCP client

lease time to it's max setting, I just changed it back to 0, 0=1 day.

Now I will see if this is the problem........


Thanks for your help......
