Snow Leopard too Slow Fix

November 25, 2009

I did a fresh install of Snow Leopard on my first generation Mac Book Air and it is still toooooooo slow. Digging around I found a couple of solutions that really helped.

General slowness due to lack of memory (from Apple Forum)

sudo rm /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/

Then if the Terminal application takes for ever to show you a prompt, delete the logs like so:

sudo rm -f /private/var/log/asl/*

Thanks Webapper for the slow Terminal fix!
