KDE on FreeBSD 5.3 - FreeBSD

KDE on my FreeBSD machine is very slow to start up application. Once the application is open it is very responsive and user input. The K menu is also displayed with speed it's just that any application seems to take several minutes to open. I'm fairly new to *nix so maybe I've missed something obvious. The only thing I can think of is that maybe there are a lot of pocess running in the background that have a higher priority than desktop applications. Any ideas?...

    Hi,
    perhaps you have a problem with you host.
    Try to edit /etc/rc.conf
    find hostname
    if they is not one, set one

    exemple:
    hostname="vincent"

    well, edit /etc/hosts
    put this:

    ::1 vincent
    127.0.0.1 vincent

    well, now reload all, perhaps it would go on
    see ya

    Ok, that's simple,
    kde is a system which use client - server mode to communicate between each application. it use the hostname to know where to listen and to know where to ask question. Well, if you set a hostname without any real sense, like "vincent" for example, it will try to resolv it, in order to know what is you local ip. Well, I don't know why kde don't use localhost or 127.0.0.1 despite of hostname but is like that. If you don't put your hostname in your hosts file, the resolv could be very long ... and it could failed. But if it exist in hosts file, kde ask it, and the system answer immediatly. The system go on !

    ok, see ya
    perhaps kde developer could give a better explanation. ciao

    Try to find the real tense of the report you are reading: Was it done,
    is it being done, or is something to be done? Reports are now written
    in four tenses: past tense, present tense, future tense, and
    pretense. Watch for novel uses of CONGRAM (CONtractor GRAMmer),
    defined by the imperfect past, the insufficient present, and the
    absolutely perfect future.
