On my G4 I use KDE 3.2 which comes up fast (this is an install done
sometime ago using the woddy installer and upgrading to sid). However,
I've got a second test partition on which I tested the new sarge d-i
(tc1) and thought I'd try Gnome 2.6. I have the behaviour you describe
icewm comes up almost instantaneously but I can make tea etc. whilst
waiting for Gnome to start, which it does eventually.
I'd be interested to in knowing how to fix this, 'cos at the moment, I'm
disinclined to persevere with Gnome.
