I installed 1.7 last night on my G5 and the loading time for starting it up is now massive. In fact it went over 5 minutes twice and I simply rebooted.
Disk fragmentation / very large cache / not enough disk buffers would be my bet. Nothing to do with 1.7 vs 1.6.
Thanks but it actually got a lot worse when I dropped the cache from 465meg to 60meg. Plus 1.6 and 1.7 are both running on the same drive.
I’ll reinstall 1.7 tonight and see what happens as it did seem to slow down after being on the web for around an hour this morning.
I’ll also have a go at defragging the hard drive when I get a chance.
