sluggish system - slackware 13 on dell poweredge 2650

Hello

I've installed 13.0 on a Dell PowerEdge 2650 and upgraded all
installed packages using slackpkg. The system is extremely sluggish,
particularly filesystem access, it seems. For example, trying to
create a database in PostgreSQL takes forever (PostgreSQL is simply
copying files into a new directory).

Could anyone suggest how to get to the root of the problem?

System info:
http://pastie.org/987051

The hardware RAID array has two disks in RAID1 configuration.

Thanks
Dale

Yes, synced with an official slackware mirror.
Only upgraded existing packages - see my pastie link for packages on the system.

Thanks

Has your kernel version changed?

Did you installed any non-slackware package before or after 
upgrade(device driver)?try using clean system with slackpkg ...
or check your filesystem with fsck
All part of system is sluggish?or only in X or something like this...

Linuxtag 2010 Berlin, June 09-12

Hi folks,

just a quick heads-up for those planning to visit Berlin within the
2nd week of June:

Linuxtag 2010, June 09-12,
http://www.linuxtag.org/2010/

Mini Debian Conference 2010, June 10-11,
http://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/Miniconf-LT-Berlin/2010

25th Chemspec Europe, June 09-10,
http://www.chemspecevents.com/europe/

100th ILA, June 08-13,
http://www.ila-berlin.de/ila2010/home/index.cfm

In case you'd like to exchange gpg key signatures, the best way would
be to attend the official Linuxtag keysigning party (which was
hijacked by wanna-be data-protection experts this year)
http://wiki.linuxtag.org/w/Keysigning-Party_2010

Well, I'm going to attend all listed events. So, additional meetings
to exchange (cross!) gpg key signatures are also possible. Just
contact me by mail until 11:59pm Sunday, June 06 as to these
concerns.

Take care.

Module issues

Dear Slackers,

I experienced a curious thing - I wanted to modprobe and got a strange
reply:
 # modprobe ehci-hcd
FATAL: Error inserting ehci_hcd
(/lib/modules/2.6.33.4-smp/kernel/drivers/usb/host/ehci-hcd.ko):
Invalid argument

Strange? Kernel is:

 # uname -a
Linux darkstar 2.6.33.4-smp #2 SMP Wed May 12 22:47:36 CDT 2010 i686
Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1600MHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

- so that would mean things fit, right? The mentioned module
  - /lib/modules/2.6.33.4-smp/kernel/drivers/usb/host/ehci-hcd.ko - is
    there as it should be.

Any of you have an idea?

Yours,
Morten
