Hello,

I run a 6.5.30 version of irix on a R14k 600 Fuel and I can't launch System Manager anymore... "Star launcher" flashes few seconds and that's all !

More, system takes 15 seconds to launch and display Icon Catalog... (on the first or third try)

Sometimes, launching Software Manager can take 8-10 seconds while it launches immediatly most of the time ...

Cpu is 0% used .....

Has someone got an idea ?

Check the console first, usually some informative mesages there. Then try starting the app from a terminal - you'll get a lot more feedback that way. Sometimes there's something informative in the system log.

If all that easy stuff fails, then call in the cavalry :P

I remember that you have to be a bit careful with your LD_LIBRARYN32_PATH setting with System Manager - if a different libdb is loaded (say, the Nekoware one rather than the IRIX one in /usr/lib32) then System Manager won't load, but you'll get an 'rld' error on your console.

I'm not sure this would account for loading delays, but it might explain the first part...

Well,

Thanks for your answers.

I've searched in the forum and I found the problem :

My pathes were pointing /usr/nekoware/lib before /usr/lib and that was the problem for the System Manager.

Btw, I still get some delays.

One, the first, is just after logging : Desktop icons, toolchest, shortcuts take time to display while cpu is 0% busy.

Seems like there's a delay in accessing disk.... Displaying Swat (samba) takes many seconds, icons on the top come one after one very slowly ....

Quick note: Bear in mind that /usr/nekoware/lib == /usr/lib32 : /usr/lib is o32 libraries, /usr/lib32 is n32 libraries, /usr/lib64 is 64bit libraries. You probably don't need to worry about this - but it is important that /usr/lib and /usr/nekoware/lib never appear in the same variable... you should have:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib:...
LD_LIBRARYN32_PATH=/usr/lib32:/usr/nekoware/lib:/usr/freeware/lib32:...
LD_LIBRARY64_PATH=/usr/lib64:/usr/freeware/lib64:...

I don't know about the delay, though, and it does sound wrong - does anything odd appear in /var/adm/SYSLOG?

Well, all running well on my octane, I've activated/deactivated some daemons on the fuel.

vswap was off.... routed was on and timed was off... (!!)

Now, it's a rocket !!!
