I think my hard drive is pretty well tuned:<br>
<tt>04:38PM/root@enuffbox>hdparm -tT /dev/hda <br>
Timing buffer-cache <a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="reads: ">reads: </a> 128 MB in 0.40 seconds =323.23 MB/sec<br>
Timing buffered disk <a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="reads: ">reads: </a> 64 MB in 1.39 seconds = 46.11 MB/sec<br>
</tt>heres my settings:<br>
multcount = 16 (on)<br>
IO_support = 3 (32-bit w/sync)<br>
unmaskirq = 1 (on)<br>
using_dma = 1 (on)<br>
keepsettings = 1 (on)<br>
readonly = 0 (off)<br>
readahead = 1 (on)<br>
geometry = 7297/255/63, sectors = 117231408, start = 0</tt><br>
<pre wrap="">hdparm -t /dev/hda.
If it is <10mb/sec, then you need to tune your hdd. try -d1 first (DMA on)
man hdparm for more info.

Geforce4 Ti4200 @ 300/500 mhz
256MB Corsiar pc2700 cas2 memory
Gentoo Linux 1.4RC2 latest everything (gcc 3.2.2, glibc 2.3.1, xfree
Matches take forever before they even start, just sitting there for over
a minute at loading screen with the harddrive going crazy. Then after it
starts, and it says press fire to start or what ever, everything is nice
and smooth. Hit fire and then everything gets VERY laggy (2-10
frames/ps) and sound extreamly choppy, the match starts, and the frames
continue like that for about a minute with the hd going crazy for about
45 seconds, when it finally goes up to nice 40fps-ish and the rest of
the match is fine.
my ut2k3 settings are: everything at highest, 32bpp, 1280x960.
I'm thinking its my memory, should I go and get another 256 stick?
