gnome / metacity became very slow...
My rh9 box is up2date, but after a few changes to my system, gnome has become extremely slow. Logging in hangs on the splash screen - taking around 30 sec for each icon (panel, etc) to load. Further, the panel never appears (waited several minutes).
What I changed:[list=1][*] added a raid array for doc storage - not used for any system files (mounted as /vault)[*] updated openssl via up2date[*] moved my /home directory to a separate partition. - this is what I think caused the issue (though permissions were fine), so I moved it back - and the issue persisted[/list=1]
the raid array is in sync, not active, and I think I've ruled it out as an issue. "top" shows that the system is almost totally idle. /var/log/messages is not much help, nothing is complaining, no errors, etc.
The system runs fine otherwise (mailserver, webserver, etc) and has not lost responsiveness other that this login oddness.
