I had "lockups" on th eold HP quad core AMD and so I bought an 8 core machine.
On F-14 someimes it would hang and I would need to wait seconds or a minute for it to resume playing music for example be it streaming or even sometimes from the harddrive.
I assumed it was the abused cpu which was up high in the heat of the room for no good reason for years.
So with the new 8-core and F16 the problem is still there but worse.
I am downloading and streaming a radio station and while trying to type to vim it seems to be waiting for something and will not display what I type nor respond to any control.
The frozen moments are 10 second to 30 seconds or more.
The parinoid moment here is : IS Vim waiting to update it's backup files or is somehow what I type being transmitted and vim is waiting for a break in the outgoing stream?
I get the whole system locking up for seconds worse under F16 tyhan F14 and I was expecting snappy proformance.
So 1. I don't understand what is happening and 2. I am only guessing as to what could be going on.
