What are the specifications of your machine? You could try some other desktop manager like fluxbox etc.

Heh, I thought you were going to say like 40 seconds, so I could say "KDE IS SLOW!!!!1111eleventyone!!"

Perhaps KDE is probing for something and locking up at that. Do you get any sound errors?

I had this once, the reason was that I did not have a line saying
Code:
127.0.0.1       localhost
in my /etc/hosts. So when kde tries to connect localhost (which it does at boot) it has to lookup that hostname by using DNS, which will obviously fail...

hope this helped you out.

isn't there some logfile kde writes to? Maybe if you could find it, the quest for what is slowing it down could be easier .

I have this exact problem (initializing services 28% ,etc), seems to only happen if the network has been brought up, works fine if network is down. I checked my host file, its fine. What could this be?

Geeks like you and I, Ray, wouldn't use KDE. However for normal people like my little brother and mom, Fluxbox, Windowmaker, etc are a bit scary. We are all aware of the other slimmer, slicker, and quicker graphical environments. So if you're going to share Linux as an alternative to MSWindows then you'll need to use KDE or Gnome, so KDE really is necessary and needs discussion.

As for the problem at hand, the hosts file, I changed the hosts file by reversing the order, instead of having localhost first:
<hostname> 127.0.0.1
localhost 127.0.0.1

This seems to happen when Linux is installed without a network connection (I had a bad network card). So try to install while connected to a LAN!
