    Angry Long start-up time for some applilcations

    Hi there
    I am having trouble starting some applications in opensuse. For example when I type mc (midnight commander) in terminal and hit enter it takes MORE than 15 seconds for it to start. Ive got the same problem with firefox too

    System : Latest Version of OpenSuse 64 Bit.

    Is it possible to have this issue resolved in opensuse?

    Thanks.

    I suspect this a problem specific to your computer. mc starts virtually immediately for me.

    the issue is almost vertainly specific to your system. Without knowing anything about your system I can only guess that it is a lack of available resources to run those programs. While you are waiting for the applications to load is your hard drive thrashing? This probably indicates low on memory so is using swap memory.

    Other than that you will need to tell us a lot more about your system (hardware, openSUSE version, DE etc).

    Not enough. Way, way more. :-)

    Try posting "free -h" here

    Please run this command in a terminal:

    Code:
    free -h
    and paste it all here, from initial command prompt, to last command prompt, in a single mouse sweep, and please do so inside code tags (the '#' button in the forum editor).


    Same with:

    Code:
    lsblk --output NAME,KNAME,RM,SIZE,RO,TYPE,FSTYPE,LABEL,PARTLABEL,MOUNTPOINT,UUID,PARTUUID,WWN,MODEL,ALIGNMENT
    hdparm -tT /dev/sda
    smartctl -a /dev/sda
    df -h
    If your drive is not sda, change it.

    OS boots up on a SSD drive,, so it takes 1-2 seconds... the problem isnt with hard drive for sure,,, this is specific for some apps only...
