sloooow emacs

when i type emacs <file> it's freeze... but open after some seconds (well... it's many seconds). Vim it's more fast but i like emacs features.
how i can "improve" emacs speed ?

Do you get no error messages or something like that?
Perhaps you could compile it yourself?

No error messages.
No changes after compile.

And do you encounter the same problems when you first start emacs with adding any command line options and opening the file afterwards?

Re: sloooow emacs

This problem appear in my system, too. And the emacs running in X may always "segment fault". In a word, there are may problems of emacs were found in my AL. I have to learn vim.

Re: sloooow emacs

I have to admit it - vim is highly addictive sad
nano is pretty nice, with autoindention and syntax hilight, tho.

is it xemacs or just emacs.... try running it from a vc w/o X running, see if that does anything....

though I suspect it's just emacs (viva la vim!) he he he

Re: sloooow emacs

If your computer is configured to be on a network,  make sure the connection is working.  When emacs is started, it tries to connect to the network.  If it cannot connect, it has to wait for a time-out hence the long startup time.

Re: sloooow emacs

That long pause is the emacs binary being stored in cache.  Every other time you run it, everything's already in memory.

In gentoo, they use prelinking, which probably speeds up the binary access.  It may even have loaded that binary before.

Re: sloooow emacs

I compiled emacs-cvs and it seems to start instantly... maybe you should try it?
