# DEFAULT KDE STARTUP SCRIPT ( KDE-2.0 )
# Boot sequence:
# kdeinit is used to fork off processes which improves memory usage
# and startup time.
# * kdeinit starts the dcopserver and klauncher first.
# * then kdesktop is launched, it is started very early in the startup
# process to give the user visual feedback as soon as possible.
# Since it needs a working ksycoca database it waits for a
# "sycoca database changed" signal from kded before it becomes functional.
# * Then kded is started. kded is responsible for keeping the sycoca
# database up to date. When an up to date database is present it sends
# a "sycoca database changed" signal.
# * The rest of the start-up sequence is less critical.
# kdeinit starts dcopserver, klauncher, kdesktop, kicker, kded and
# Prevent an ever growing .ICEauthority file, since that will kill application
# startup performance.
