For some time now, lets say a month, my laptop with endeavouros has gone from fast to laggy. I’ve postponed trying to fix the issue as I don’t have much experience with linux and hoped an update would take care of it at some point, but there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight.
Opening a project in vscode can take 20 seconds before vscode is usable. Once loaded it’s usually fairly fast, but it varies. Sometimes whatever I type can wait 3 seconds before it’s rendered, suggestions can be rendered slowly so it looks like it fades in.
Just loading a basic newpaper in firefox can take quite a while.
I realize I’ll have to post some logs here, but I don’t really know what is needed to diagnose the issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated
First welcome to the wonderful world of EndeavourOS.
The first thing that came to my mind, I would like to have a look on your hardware, the basics, it can be lack of RAM (or others)
Is your drive SSD or HDD?
Can you post results of the command
a youtube app or from the browser? “13 seconds to load” load the app? open youtube page? load the movie and play it? in browser ro app?
Test your internet speed anyway. I would suggest you try the LTS kernel, reboot to it and see how it goes.
Just curious, have you installed anything extra that might be running in the background? Antivirus?, Firewall?,
Something just popped up my mind, what if you uninstall “vscode”, no screen sharing, no networking… and see. I maybe wrong though. But I am assuming it is me who have this issue and think what would I do.
I am sure you will find help here in this wonderful forum.
I took a look at the steps you mentioned in the other thread.
I’ve tried LTS kernel without noticing any difference in performance. I figured I might as well set it to default though, but there’s no line with GRUB_DEFAULT in /etc/grub/grun.cfg
Because of this I thought I might use systemd-boot as you mention, but I don’t have the /etc/kernel/cmdline file, so I guess not?
You mentioned above I’m not using a swapfile, is the suggestion you make about enlarging the swap file relevant for me? No swapfile in / on my system
As mentioned I don’t have a /etc/kernel/cmdline file.
I’m using xfce, and from my understanding wayland is not a part of that
