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?
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:
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). http://susepaste.org/images/15093674.jpg
It’ll save some questions and provide a better response if distribution version of OpenSUSE and desktop name/version are supplied.
Also what has changed: new install, any software updates, new hardware, change internet provider, config changes…
lsb_release -rd # Distribution
echo $DESKTOP_SESSION # Which desktop
mate-about # MATE version
kde4-config -v # KDE version
rpm -qa --last | head -n5 # Last 5 updates
YaST2 -> Release Notes
Almost any desktop application (like configuration or file manager), select Help -> About
Without knowing more it could be:
Firefox and MC are slow, which others?
Any messages in the system log that might indicate a failure?
If it isn’t hardware (like a bad sector), maybe networking (search MC and slow startup, lots of hits).
First of all i want to tank you all who tried to help me!!! Thank YOU!!!
And ive got this problem solved with latest updates in tumbleweed (those apps are starting faster than light !!!)… Dont know what was causing this issue, but i think that was related to some specific hardware combination maybe… i dont know. So everyone who have this issue you either can wait for an update ooor upgrade your system manually to the latest possible version…
