I've experienced a similar problem with "linux-2.4.20-rc2-ac3",
"linux-2.4.20-rc4-ac1" and "linux-2.4.20-ac1". At first I also
thought it's a swap problem, but this seems to be a wrong con-
The problem occurs, for example, when Mozilla and RealPlayer are
running and I start to compile something or copy large files. The
RealPlayer interrupts, the mouse sometimes doesn't move smoothly
any more, and so on.
Using "linux-2.4.20" I don't see this behaviour.
I've collected some information when running "linux-2.4.20-ac1"
and "linux-2.4.20". I've uploaded it to:
The "vmstat"- and "ps"-files were created during the "cp" of about
2,5 GB of data from one hard disk to the other one.
