Subject: [gentoo-user] switching to graphics mode tty extremely slow
Date: Sat, 28 Apr 2007 16:00:51
1 My system is extremely slow to switch back to a graphical TTY. I'm not
2 talking about X starting up but just switching TTYs. For example, if I'm
3 sitting at the KDM login screen and I hit CTL-ALT-F2 and switch to a text
4 mode TTY, it takes only a second to get a login prompt. When I hit
5 CTL-ALT-F7 to switch back to graphical mode, the screen goes black and it
6 takes 25 to 30 seconds before I see the KDM login screen again. I certainly
7 don't recall this process taking this long in the past. Is it normal?
9 Running KDE 3.5 on an ATI Radeon 9600 with the open source drivers.
