ubuntu some programs load very slow


some programs load very slow on my ubuntu system.
for example gdmsetup, wine, azureus take 2 or 3 minutes to start.

what could be the reason for this?

Problem could be just about anything from slow harddrive, broken/misconfigured config files, lack of memory, slow processor etc.

Please be more specific: give your computer's hardware specs and start these programs (gdmsetup, azureus) from a xterm and see if you find if they output any error messages.
