I have a simple question. I was running the beta kde4. When I went to install 2010, I used the existing linux partitions but I did not format home. Everything installed well, went to the repo and did all the updates etc. Everything runs, boots up insainly fast but the performance of Kwin and or compiz is often chuggy and slow. Much slower than the beta kde4 (4.2). So my question is, should I try reinstalling but this time, format my old home partition? It seems that most people are getting great performance where I am having a noticably lower performance that my previous install. Seeing that my hardware has not changed and the correct drivers are loaded etc, I am wondering if some of my issues are related to having not formatting my old home.
Any ideas if formating/not formating home would make any real difference?
