Well, good morning to all in the list.
I've run into a silly issue with loading xorg+gnome. I've split the
process in three stages.
1) Loading xorg (startx). This stage works as expected and takes ~1 second.
2) Insanely long delay. This stage is weird and takes ~12 minutes (have
measured it several times, though slightly imprecise).
3) Loading Gnome 2.20. This stage works as expected and takes ~1 second.
After the third stage everything works fine and smooth and
near-instantaneous (quite opposite Windows
The second stage (the insanely long unexplainable delay) takes the
mentioned ~12 minutes. There is no harddisk activity at all. The only
thing I have is a black screen and the black'n'white standard X-cursor
(though it does react instantaneously on mouse movements
Does anybody know where to look for information useful to find the
problem. I haven't found any logfile with any information related to
this weird delay, which of course is consistent with the complete lack
of harddisk activity.
