Just as a start, until the experts arrive ...... Is Xfce just too much for the system? It ran nicely here a while back on a 900mhz machine - but was noticeably slower than fvwm, so I ditched it :-) Firefox works - but does it take forever for ff to start? Xterm works - close down firefox and everything else, fire up an xterm and run top - is there anything using up a lot of memory or cpu that shouldn't be there at all? Have a look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log - any interesting error messages? What does your .xinitrc look like? atb Glyn _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
