I've also experienced this since moving to 7-CURRENT (and tracking through to the current 7.0-BETA2) and have been unable to figure out why. Startup takes between 30 and 40 seconds, during with the "evolution" process consumes 100% of one of the cores of the dual-core processor. After startup, various actions (including right-clicking on attachments) take approximately 10 seconds to complete the first time the action is done, this time with the "evolution-data-server" process consuming 100% of one core. Running ktrace against the evolution process during startup shows large amounts of apparently random information, but I don't have a pre-7 system to compare it to. I use SCHED_ULE and have had no other noticeable system slowdowns. All ports have been built from source with no extra settings in /etc/make.conf. $ cat /var/db/ports/evolution/options # This file is auto-generated by 'make config'. # No user-servicable parts inside! # Options for evolution-2.12.1_3 _OPTIONS_READ=evolution-2.12.1_3 WITHOUT_PILOT=true WITHOUT_LDAP=true WITHOUT_SPAMASSASSIN=true _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
