Gnome very sluggish

| FreeBSD | 1 Comment

With much enthusiasm, they claim that the latest 2.14 version of Gnome was supposed to be a quantum leap in improvement, what with all that memory optimization, performance gains and a number of other truly amazing tweaks.

However, after having attempted to upgrade from the 2.12 version a number of times, reporting this and that, and reinstalling packages, I am afraid that I have been experiencing the exact opposite on my FreeBSD 6.1 platform.

The newest Gnome desktop has become a veritable nightmare for me. So much wasted time. Very sluggish and unresponsive, applications take forever to startup, and at times things become frozen and/or displaying erratic repaints and all.

I've pretty much given up all hope.

I ended up just rebuilding Gnome completely from scratch, and now it seems to be working just fine.
