re: gnome apps _slow_
I emailed awhile back re gnome apps taking forever to come
up and noting network access thrash while waiting
During one of the debian unstable upgrades I
lost esound/esd daemon auto start capability
(I've always had it installed on my system)
or the gnome apps became dependent
In any case, I noticed that root gnome apps were fast
and lacked the network thrash. I followed up on
another clue re esound and noted that it was _not_
running in the background.
If I now crank up esd from a root window with
I lose xfce sound but gnome apps are happy in
So, I current questions are:
1) clues re configuring Xfce to route window
sounds through esd?
2) clues re how esd is supposed to crank up
when X server starts and perhaps what might
have happened to block same?
