I've recently installed gentoo on a 300Mhz beige G3. This is my first gentoo install on ppc, though I've been using gentoo x86 for a couple of years.
I'm having trouble getting mol and macos 9.1 to behave. Whenever I click on an icon or a window, the mouse freezes for about a second. The machine is completely unresponsive during this period. This does not happen when I click on a drop down menu, but it does occur when I click on a submenu. This makes it impossible to doubleclick, because the machine is frozen after the first click.
* dmesg doesn't show anything funny
* This happens when running mol in console or x-windows, in 8 and 15 bit color depth.
* Disabling networking and sound seems to shorten the freeze to about half a second.
* The freeze doesn't seem to be related to disk access.
* The mouse motion is very smooth and responsive, except when dragging a window, when it seems very jerky.

Any guesses what this might be? I'm assuming that this isn't normal behavior, because macos is barely usable this way.
