Description o.schnapauff 1999-08-24 19:05:17 EDT
Gnome on an Alpha LX, rh 6.0 all updates.

Starting gnome takes several minutes (right after e started,
before gnome-nameserver et. al. start).

Specialty here: local nameserver, caching and secondary,
behind isdn dialup. Maybe it tries a funky ns lookup?

The gnome control center coredumps in a malloc when trying
to configure a backgournd picture (and other places, not
clearly reproducible).

Overall, right now gnome is not usable here. Other weird
things not further investigated. Gnome (before the last
updates) on an x86 showed similar start problems, but didnt
crash as much (there was always a core in a users home after
login, from varying programs though)

Can you try the Gnome packages in Raw Hide?
Comment 2 Elliot Lee 1999-09-01 13:51:59 EDT
If you still have these problems with the latest stuff in Rawhide,
please let me know. I have an Alpha right next to me, and Gnome itself
is perfectly stable on it (although the crashes in XFree86's xfs do
not help general stability).
Comment 3 Elliot Lee 1999-10-29 10:44:59 EDT
Please upgrade to the stuff in RHL 6.1, or even better, October GNOME.
Both versions are a lot more stable than the versions in 6.0.
