I recently installed FreeBSD 5.2.1 on my Toshiba Satellite 1605CDS. The
install took a few tries but I finally got it. My problem is that X is
VERY slow. KDE takes around 10 minutes to load and then is virtually
unusable. I tried going lightweight with Fluxbox , which loads quickly
but any heavy graphics app (mozilla for example) loads very slowly also
and is virtually unusable. I'm pretty sure it's my XF86Config . (I had
a hard time just to get it to run X)....it doesn't seem to be
recognizing my video card properly. I am relatively new to Freebsd,
although I've been tooling around with nix for a year or so now so i
have a bit of experience. Any help with this would be greatly
appreciated. My main aim is to have this laptop run KDE. Thanks!
