If you don't tune your mysql it won't take advantage of your total
RAM. For instance, I'm pretty sure you're running a desktop
environment, a browser and an apache server on the same machine. You
should see with 'top' (shift+m) how much RAM mysql is using and by the
way your swap usage. Then if you use 'du' to see in /var/lib/mysql how
much disk space do your databases use (you might have other databases
too) and compare to the RAM the server is consuming.

You should cheeck the logs (koha-error.log). Are you using Linux,
right? Try disabling things like apparmor.
