Description Heikki Toivonen 2003-02-01 00:07:40 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0.2) Gecko/20021120 Netscape/7.01 Description of problem: After reboot, launching any application for the first time is excruciatingly slow. For example, launching htmlview takes 40-45 seconds. This only happens with the default window manager. If I try under KDE or WindowMaker htmlview launches in about 6 seconds. After an application has been started at least once, they usually start again in less than 5 seconds, even if I log out in the meanwhile. My hardware: DELL Latitude (800-something series? 1600x1200 display) 1.8GHz/1GB NVIDIA GeForce 4 Mobile Go(?), dual boot Win2k/RH 8.0 with 10GB on Linux partition, 0.5-2.5% disc fragmentation. I have seen other people with supposedly the exact same hardware and software and no problems, and also people with other hardware facing the same problems I have. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Reboot 2. Login with Gnome 3. Launch htmlview and measure how long it takes. 4. Reboot 5. Login with KDE or WindowMaker 6. Launch htmlview and measure how long it takes Actual Results: Under Gnome launching htmlview takes almost 10 times longer than on other window managers. Expected Results: Launching htmlview should take about the same time. Additional info: I have tried without SWAP, with default SWAP, with local user and NIS, have tried different display drivers (default 'vesa' and NVIDIA). Tried with somewhat configured installation, and almost default workstation installation (only added some things, nothing removed).
