http://unix.stackexchange.com – I have a OpenSuse 11.4 64 bit installed. Earlier the system was fast. Now Eclipse takes forever to open and then takes 5 minutes to build workspace ( No kidding! ) . Here is how top looks on the system when opening eclipse : Tasks: 181 total, 1 running, 180 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie Cpu(s): 5.3%us, 1.6%sy, 0.0%ni, 57.2%id, 35.8%wa, 0.0%hi, 0.2%si, 0.0%st Mem: 8099348k total, 8046104k used, 53244k free, 46904k buffers Swap: 2103292k total, 0k used, 2103292k free, 7055848k cached PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND (HowTos)
