Login times are mad slow on netbooks


I find login times to generally be Ok on an EeePC 701, although mine is pretty much just a minimalist base install (KDE folder is around 760mb) with Kmix, KolourPaint, KSnapshot, Kaffeine and Kwrite as the only software compiled from additional modules.

I'm still using KDE4.6 - It seems like more and more of the MacroOptionals have become "MacroNotSoOptionals" in later versions of KDE4, making it harder to maintain a smaller installation.

I keep hearing people say that login times are "okay" or even "fast" on much less powerful netbooks than mine (an Eee 1005HAB).

Mind if I ask what constitutes a decent login time from your POV, and how you configured KDE to get it that way? For reference I typically get login times of 30 seconds cold and 20 seconds hot. (Timed with an actual wall clock, ha ha.)
