My computer does not support GUI mode and lagging

My computer does not support GUI mode, and I have RHEL5 installed. After using the command ctrl+alt+F7, the computer lags and will not process the command. The machine I am running this on has an Intel Core i3 processor with plenty of RAM (2 GB DDR3), so why is the machine lagging when I try to do this?

Hallo Lucas,

2 GB RAM memory is indeed plenty of memory and your computer should not be getting so slow and hanging as you are saying, but it will also depend on the kind of processes that you are running your computer and how you have organized the files on it.

If you happen to be running memory intensive processes, then that may be the reason why the computer is lagging and hanging all the time. Also ensure that you have partitioned your hard drives so that the drive that has the operating system is not chromed up with a lot of files which may occupy a lot of memory space.

But if the problem is a onetime occurrence, then try restarting the computer and see if the problem is solved.

Hello Lucas,

As we start, your system specification is good for this kind Operating system which is RHEL5. The problem you encounter is X Window system (GUI) mode of that OS which cause the system lags. I’ll explain this happen because GUI was not able to include during installation. In installation see to it that in base system the X Windows system is checked. Please give us a feedback if you can’t see the GUI and try to refer in your RHEL5 installation guide this may be difficult to understand for light user about the command.
