Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 84490
Login is really slow
Last modified: 2008-05-11 10:12:22 EDT
Something is chugging when logging in to gnome, perhaps
the icon theming on the splash screen icons.
maybe just the silly locate database just after installing...
On LTSP when 20 users login nearly simultaneously, Phoebe stalls for quite a
while on each users login session. top shows 99% CPU usage on gdm-binary for a
few seconds per user.
kdm and gdm in RH 7.3 didn't stall like this when users logged in...
hmm, I wonder what gdm could be up to? at least that's a lead.
I'm seeing the splash screen while it chugs, though no splash icons.
so gnome-session is running...
This bug is quite old now. Given the lack of activity on this report and the
likelihood that this bug has already been fixed, I am going to close it. If you
encounter the problem discussed in this report with Fedora Core 3 or a recent
version of gdm/gnome-session, feel free to reopen.
Maybe I should open up a new bug, but what I'm reading here looks like what I'm
Booting into Fedora 9 ( up to the gnome login screen ) is very fast ( seams
faster than Fedora 8 ).
But after I enter the username and password in the Greeter it takes a LONG time
to get a fully loaded/painted desktop. 25+/- seconds on my old xp 1700, 1 gig
ram, Radeon 9000 (free video drivers) and 15+/- seconds on my xp 2800 2 gigs
ram, GeForce 7300 GT ( proprietary video drivers ).
I've installed Fedora 9 on a couple other machines and I experience the same
One thing that is a bit disappointing is i just upgraded my neighbors grandmas
machine from an old 700MHz PIII 350MB ram i built running Fedora Core 6 to the
xp 1700 machine (described above) running Fedora 9. I tell you... Fedora Core 6
ran fast on that old machine. Maybe faster than Fedora 9 is running on the
newer machine. Defiantly though, the slowness from Greeter to Full desktop
doesn't help the perception.
If this should be a new bug, please let me know and i'll copy/paste this into a
newly created bug report.
