i've got the same 'feature' here, except it takes less than 2 minutes to load
the greeting screen. kdm_greet uses a lot of cpu time and ram. it seems to load
faster after i log out of kde. btw. i run sid with karolinas kde3.1 packages
(3.1.0+rc6+kl) on an athlon 900mhz and 512mb of ram. ksplash and kde_init both
run just fine, though. this delay also occurs on a woody/kde2.2.2 installation
so maybe it's not a kde thing but has something to do with fonts? (that's the
common thing on both systems. i've got a network font server with lots of fonts
for those machines. but ther's not more network traffic during the delay than
usual and while kdm starts/loads the harddisk is being accessed a lot. so i
guess it's not a font thing either.) i really don't know but would be very
interested in a solution.
greets, f. soul.
