gnome slow to load after kernel upgrade
This is a minor issue but it is bugging me. I was running slackware 10.0 with kernel 2.4.26. I had tried many unsuccessful attempts at upgrading to 188.8.131.52, and decided to start small. I figured I would upgrade to 2.4.27 and see how things go. The kernel compile went great with the help of many of the posts here, but now Gnome is REALLY slow to load. Everything works as it should and I don't have any errors when I run dmesg. But when I login to gnome, it starts and then sits and waits and finally loads. I can see each individual icon show up under the gnome 2.6 splashscreen (nautilius, etc.). With the stock installation of slack 10 they used to fly by. Any ideas on what went wrong? It isn't data transfer from my harddrive since the drive actually stops between me logging in and the splashscreen showing up. I've searched, but can't find anyone that has had this problem. I think I missed a setting in the config of the new kernel. I just can't figure out what it is. I stripped off everything I didn't need so I thought it would be faster. Thanks in advance for any help.
