Hi all, I have recently installed Mint 4.0 (Gnome) on my Dell desktop and am having some issues which I am keen to resolve. I have just become a Mint fan purely by chance (after toying with Ubuntu and Mepis) and this is definitely the distro I am going to stick with. Mint is the sole system on my Acer Aspire WLMi laptop and it's great.
But on my Dell desktop (which has Dell Restore and Dell Utility partitions) I am dual booting with XP. Live CD worked fine and the first boot after installation was also fine. But on subsequent boots, it has taken minutes from selecting Mint at the boot screen to reach the username screen. When that appears, it is several more minutes before the desktop appears. Applications also take several minutes to respond.
Could the Dell partitions be having an impact - and what do I do?
I should also mention that Mepis was previously installed along with XP and worked smoothly. I installed Mint over Mepis and have around 2GB swap, 10GB / and 60GB /home partitions.
Thanks for any guidance.
