Please, make us a favor, to all of us, you and we: Don't compare two systems which are separated by an abysmal distance. Thanks.
It is unnecessary. He's already gave up, as he/she said.
Further investigation shows that it appears to be some sort of race condition. I edited
/usr/local/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon-localeexecand changed the exec line to use
trussin order to try to trace where it was getting stuck.
truss -o /home/wmoore/Documents/gnome-settings-daemon-truss.out exec /usr/local/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon
However after that change the hang stopped, even with
.xinitrc. Suspecting the slight delay introduced by truss I then changed
gnome-settings-daemon-localeexecto the following and that seems to have the same effect:
sleep 1 exec /usr/local/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon

Perhaps you are a smart person and you'll study this (in that case, well, there are at least 7-10 years of study). Or simply you gave up because it is too much for you and you want some easy-use (but that doesn't mean that it will be a good OS). In the second case, I can understand you. I've fight one time and again with this OS.
But you know what's the difference between you and me? I never gave up. I will be still here, but you not. Think about it.
But if you say that maybe in a few years you'll try to use it, well, there's no guarantee about that.
