Re: extremely slow KDE/Gnome
Thanks. As it happens, the problem was with the package 'dhcp3-client'
and not with either KDE or Gnome. On the day I got ADSL, I started
using dhcp with a router, I downloaded a lot of packages including
dhclient and then the unbearably slow logins began.
After uninstalling a lot of KDE and Gnome I found that
login was hanging for several minutes with other window managers and
also found that typing into search fields like google or
user/password fields for web mail, also caused the browser to hang.
I don't understand why it was doing this, but uninstalling dhcp3-client
and switching to 'pump' has fixed it.
anyone got an explanation for this?
