I was wondering if anyone has the problem of gnome loading very slowly. As in greater then 5 minutes. Is there any possible way too speed things up a bit?
whenever i logoff and select save changes, the next time i login its reasonably fast (faster than kde).
so would there be some way to fix that up. even if save session is permanently checked, rather than checking it every time i logoff.
That sounds seriously broken. I suspect it's a session manager problem - can you run gnome-session in a terminal or something? Login as "Failsafe", then run gnome-session and see if anything is printed that indicates a fault
I did fail safe, the only ting which spits out any errors is open box (is there a way to change that to metacity). but it does this whether save changes is selected or not. the point which it seems to hang is just after open box is loaded.
yeah ur right about the 100mb, sorry i got ive actually got 500mb.
i think i may have httpd running and other junk which i probably get rid off. but ive got plenty of memory free, which doesnt explain why it just sits there, not even loading from hard drive.
Thanks for the reply. I got it to load. I had auto login checked and was defaulting to KDE. But upon signing in I ran into another problem:"Could not look up internet address for ispwest. This will prevent Gnome from operating correctly. It may be possible to correct the problem by adding ISP West to the file /etc/hosts." Isp West is my ISP. How do I go about adding Isp west to that file? I asked Mandrake Expert this question but they said that since Gnome didn't come with Discovery it wasn't supported for help. WTF!? Took as much time to deny help as it would've to help.
