I think if you are not getting the performance you are expecting please try stopping the tskeys process.
this is mentioned in the RC1 thread but if you did not read the whole thread it is easy to miss.
You can stop it before starting the windows manager with "killall tskeys"

or you can comment out the tskeys from starting documented here:http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?s=&...st&p=181116
I also, since I am using a C3100, put my swap area on a partition on the MD not sure if this is faster or slower
Thanks to the folks who found this information and posted it. Just though if this was discussed here in the performance thread it would help.
It was also mentioned that a speedy SD card helps. I expect to try that as soon as it arrives but I saw a significant improvement once the tskeys process was stopped.
Done all of the above - am busy compiling some apps and thought overclocking was in PDAXrom why not Zubuntu - you get nearly 50% more cpu which is great for compiling. (Never mind the optimisations). I must admit I have swap on the MD and starting emacs is faster in Zubuntu than pdaxrom.
Anyone try building any apps? I mostly have the latest EMACS of the cvs head working - some lisp files don't get made but I don't use them.
Tried mplayer - since audacious doesn't work for me. Fails - goes round and round saying configuration changed re-run ./configure - go figure indeed.....
Went back to pdaxrom today briefly - and realised just how good it was. Zubuntu has th epotential to be better but for me it is still not there (no sound/video, can't get wireless and wpa going on my ambicom, my noname usb lan stopped working (both ambicom and usb-lan work fine in pdaxrom).
Can't get a @ symbol and the key repeat starts too soon for my chubby fingers!
