GUI too slow to start up

Hi all,

The GUI start-up is too slow in Fedora 9.
I am facing this problem after a kernel upgradation or installation of new kernel release, through YUM.
I installed the nVIDIA driver, but it takes nearly 3 minutes for GUI to come up.

Then when I open Terminal Window, it again takes couple of minutes to come up.
Opening up of Firefox also takes about couple of minutes.

I have not faced this issue in earlier releases of Fedora.
Prior to upgradation of kernel everything was working perfectly fine.

Is there any solution to make the GUI come up more faster?
Actually, the striking feature in Fedora 9 is to have start-up time and shutdown time as less as possible. But now, everything is working quite opposite, especially after this kernel upgradation.

Can anyone help me out to solve this issue?

I've had similar problems long time ago related to network problems. Have you checked your network setup?

The network setup is fine. I have 2 NICS in my desktop pc. One is connected to a Router and other one to a laptop.
The network is perfectly working fine.
I am unable to co-relate the connection between network and GUI.
In what way does a network affect GUI?
Could you please help me out in this, and the steps you took to solve this problem.
Thanks

This was a a long shot for me, it might really be just anything. In my case it think it was DNS problems. I never looked into it that much, I fixed DNS and everything was fine.

Anyway, FC9 boot is faster then before, and you could almost say that X startup is snappy. So you have something strange in your installation, for sure, although I have really no idea what it might be if the network is OK.

Have you looked in the system log /var/log/messages, also found in the menu System | System Tools | Log viewer?

besides leamas suggestion to fix your DNS, take a look at the file /etc/hosts
Code:
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1		localhost.localdomain localhost
::1		        localhost.localdomain localhost
without localhost defined in /etc/hosts, X startup is always very slow.

the entry was like
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost localhost
i removed one of the localhost
but multiple aliases should not be a problem
