Slow x startup.

Hi All.

First... Sorry for the long post. But i am truly lost any help would
be appreciated.

When starting X it takes forever.  I am running 4.8 stable with
sources from sunday.  Hardware : Vodoo Banshee 16MB, Pentium 233, 64MB
ram.

I get some errors when starting X. :-

-bash-2.05b$ startx
Using authority file /home/budgie/.Xauthority
Writing authority file /home/budgie/.Xauthority
xauth: (argv):1:  bad display name "housemat.mat:0" in "list" command
Using authority file /home/budgie/.Xauthority
xauth: (stdin):1:  bad display name "housemat.mat:0" in "add" command

Could this be cause i have not setup my hostname ?

Yes. Make sure you have a proper name service configured. At least make
sure your hostname resolves to some IP address. The delay you experience
is likely a DNS timeout.

1. gconfd slow (gnome2 apps slow startup) solved!!

Okay, if your gnome2 apps are starting really slowly and you are
getting this in /var/log/messages:

Resolved address "xml:readwrite:/home/dallen/.gconf" to a writable
config source at position x

...chances are you have set a hostname for your computer other than
localhost (such as foo.linuxrocks.com) and at the current moment that
DNS is down.  I found that the slowness happened concurrently with a
DNS resolution failure and when I added the IP address to /etc/hosts
the apps started up quick again.  Obviously the gnome2/kde init
process for apps must attempt an external resolution of hostname if it
is anything other than one defined in /etc/hosts.
