system. It's always been a fine
machine, even with 256 megs and 16 gigs of hard drive space. It is
running Irix 6.5
A real workhorse, now getting
to be an oldtimer :-)
This week, when we went to do an image capture, using mediarecorder as
always, the machine
was slow. The mediarecorder window popped up quickly, but the icons
took several seconds
for each to come in. If you select a menu item, it takes up to 30
seconds for the menu to
drop down :-(
Nothing has changed in the hardware configuration. No unwanted tasks
Load ranges from .30 to 1.5 but nothing unusual.
I ran the diagnostics and things checked out fine. I went to the
and ran several. distort crashed, atlantis crashed, pointblank ran
texcube ran slow.
What could be causing a generalized slowdown in the graphics speed?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
