Sluggish programs spamming gettimeofday() calls. What gives?view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – (Using Mageia 3 x86, with the Gnome fallback desktop, on my Eee netbook) Granted this is a relatively slow machine, I've noticed that some programs are really bad on it. In particular, gnome-panel menus are very unresponsive, and Firefox lags a lot doing... well, almost anything. So I ran strace on gnome-panel. (HowTos)

http://techcrunch.com – We all have our e-vices. Those sites that you catch yourself browsing with a half-focused gaze. The ones that nibble away at your time and leave you wondering what the hell you did all day, and how you ended up with page after page of purple links but not one thing scratched off your to-do list.

Help with GTK themes: Contextual menusview story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I was hoping to find some help with styling contextual menus within a GTK theme. I am specifically trying to change the color of the hover event of a menu item. I've defined menu_gradient_a and menu_gradient_b in menu.css, which works fine in some applications, though many others (Firefox, GIMP, etc.) seem to ignore this declaration. (HowTos)

CentOS 6.4 x86_64 uses too much memory and swapview story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I`ve been surfing the web for about 1 week and everything I`ve found is "centos knows how to use the ram, don`t worry" but I really think this is a problem. I have a VM with a recent/clean installation of CentOS 6.4 X86_64 final with 1.5GB RAM, 1 processor / 4 cores and 700MB SWAP and the problem is the memory consumption. I installed postgresql, pgadmin3, JRE 7.25 (NOT JDK nor OpenJDK), (HowTos)

[Utilities] Forecastfox Weather 2.2.2 for Firefox works, handyview story

http://www.kubuntuforums.net – I usually keep the browser pretty plain vanilla because I figure the more dinguses there are they might slow things down. But, gotta say....Forecastfox Weather 2.2.2 looks good, works, is discreet (lower border of FF but can be changed) customizeable, has popup map, etc. Yes the browser has to be going to show it but...browser is going most of the time anyway!
