    I have noticed it since elogind was upgraded.
    Anyone else?

    But this ssd with 4 gig of ram screams fast in antiX. I have not been in the shop computer yet to see. But I don’t pay attention to it. It is mainly a media center.

    I have the same version of elogind on USB and the apt-get update is quick. I updated the system yesterday so there are no new packages and therefore the entire process is quick.

    I have both a runit and traditional setup on disk, plus MX. I’ll try all three and see if anything is slow or sluggish. Haven’t noticed consistent sluggish behavior, though I will on rare occasions experience slowdown. I will observe and report anything that suggests any problems with the specific version of elogind.

    I’m still using elogind:
    Installed: 241.3-2+antix1
    So I guess, no. 🙂

    Linux (& BSD) since 1999

    I have 243.7-1 on three instances, updated all of them and found no issues.

    The three:

    antiX 19.1 Base, installed on the hard drive

    antiX 19.1 runit installed on the hard drive

    antiX-Base 19.1 installed on my USB.

    All are current, run well, update well and experience no sluggish behavior either in normal use or when installing software.

    Whatever happened must have been local conditions at the time.

    On my slowest computer maybe less than half a second more to open an app for the first time in that session. Not so bad.
    I noticed that something was also uninstalled for that eligind upgrade
    Now:

    apt-cache policy elogind
    elogind:
      Installed: 243.7-1.0antix1
      Candidate: 243.7-1.0antix1

    Thanks for the replies.

    Our latest elogind will remove (if installed) libpam-elogind-compat.
    This is ok and is good since libpam-elogind-compat was just a
    hack to allow installation of various ‘systemd-desktops’ such as
    gnome and budgie. It is no longer needed as libpam-elogind does the job.

    I’m using herbstluftwm, and definitely saw this slow opening eg sudo rox
    with the new change. I removed elogind, libpam-elogind and it was replaced
    with consolekit (slim need one of them), and I no longer see this issue.

    However, running live/frugal with IceWM/JWM/fluxbox shows no such issues when
    running elogind.

    I think the ‘culprit’ is libpam-elogind and herbstluftwm.

    That’s good to know anticapitalista. I appreciate your vigilance to keep our software as simple and reasonable in resource consumption as possible.

    This is another victory in avoiding packages that prevent us from taking maximum advantage of our software and hardware. I hope the herbstluftwm window manager can be further improved if it is in fact having issues with the package libraries. At least it sounds like you are honing in on a cause of the issue, which is an important step to resolving the problem. Thanks for letting us know what’s happening; I have not been running herbstluftwm; no wonder I haven’t seen this issue.

    Counted to 2 opening firefox-esr. Pretty snappy compared to my other gear. I had not updated this laptop because of a cancelled bike trip. I was gonna travel as is.

    Edit: I noticed the removal as requested messages during dist-upgrade. Figured that was anti in action. Said yeah to replacing skel file.
