View Full Version : Apps take forver to launch [solved]

21st December 2006, 02:41 PM
I've just had the strangest problem for a couple of days. Applications were taking forever to launch, in the region of 40 seconds plus. I tried a bunch of things, but the end cause was very simple, spotted by Camcorder on irc.freenode.net#fedora, turns out I changed my hostname and the appropriate entires weren't entered into /etc/hosts.

If you don't have your full hostname in /etc/hosts, you'll have all sorts of weird problems... :)

Hopefully this might help somebody else with the same problem.
