GTK say what?

running mandrake 8.2, kde 3.0.3...

the last couple days things have been running very sluggish (much more than it should). now...when i try restarting X, the Nvidia splash stays there for a loooong time, then kde takes a very looong time to boot up. also, i try running various programs, and there's lots of lag. so...i did what i'm supposed to do, run stuff from a console and see what happens.

so i ran galeon. it takes forever to start up, but also, there's this listing of messages in the console (i don't have the word for word of it because i was annoyed with how slow everything was i switched to windows...)

something like:

"GTK WARNING: blah blah blah module blah :
GTK WARNING: blah blah blah module blah :"

i'm pretty sure i've got gtk+2...

please help so i can get out of windows...

Well you could have switched to another window manager instead of kicking yourself with winbloze. And that is still what I think you should do to see if it's something with KDE that slowing you down. Try something lighter, something that you have on your system. If you are gung ho, give twm a try. Anyway, see if it continues happening there as well, it might be a kde problem.

check your if the apps you're running/upgrades require matching gtk-themes-xenostep*.rpm and gtk-themes-flat.*.rpm
