My oldest system is an "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU 1.66GHz". It was running
an HDD consistently slow. I replaced the HDD with a SDD and performance improved
markedly. I have since upgraded to F27 and have no issues. The system is up 24/7.
I suppose you need to start by using "top" or a similar utility to see what
may be taking up resources.
Well, first that doesn't explain why the system went flaky with the last
KDE update and was doing just fine before.
Also--and this might strike you as somewhat old-fashioned an outlook--no
one has ever explained to me why SDD's are non-volatile. Are they
volatile or non-volatile? Or am I missing something? And what is the
maximum capacity of an SDD, and how exactly do I manage to replace it?
