Application Start Up Times
Help!! When I first installed FC 6 just over a week ago I was quite impressed with the times applications seemed to start. I was previously using Ubuntu and I thought that the application startup times under FC6 were much better.
But I don't know what I've done, but now applications are taking ages to start up and it's not related to disk activity. When I click on the menu item for an application I can see a very brief amount of disk activity, then no there is no activity what so ever for a period of time and then finally a burst just before the application comes up on screen.
For example loading the terminal program was just times at just over 11 seconds!!! This used to load almost instantaneously. Evolution takes 20 seconds, GnomeBaker nearly 13 seconds etc etc.
This is all on a freshly rebooted computer with no background jobs running high CPU (at least nothing that Top reports on). I'm at a loss, has anyone experienced this in the past? I'm open to suggestions.... anyone??
