Hi list, A problem has crept up on me over the past couple of weeks and I have no idea where to begin troubleshooting it. When I first load KDE 3.2.2 some apps, such as Evolution, Kate, Kwrite, Kcalc, gnome-print-manager, gedit, basically any KDE or Gnome native app takes a very long time to load, up to 5 minutes. Sometimes, they hourglass for a while and then just stop. Executing, say, kate at the command line gives no error messages nor do any appear in any logs. Xmms, Xine, Wine apps (M$ Word, ppt, etc), firefox all start up right away. It's only KDE and Gnome apps. Once the apps are up and running everything is fine. But each app must go through this process once. However, say I logged out with Evolution still open. Next login will restore the app without delay. I cannot think of any event that may have changed my system. I've been running FC2 with kernel 2.6.7-1.494.2.2.stk16 for a couple of months on a Dell Latitude D800 laptop. Since this problem began I tried the updated KDE from up2date but the problem persists. Any thoughts on where to begin tracking this down would be greatly appreciated!! -- Derek Schaible <dschaible cssiinc com> CSSI, Inc.
