<title>GDM Performance</title>

To speed performance it is possible to build GDM so that it will
preload libraries when GDM first displays a greeter program. This
has been shown to speed first time login since these libraries can
be loaded into memory while the user types in their username and
password.

<para>
To use this feature, configure GDM with the --with-prefetch option.
This will cause GDM to install the gdmprefetch program to the
EXPANDED_LIBEXEC directory, install the gdmprefetchlist to the
&lt;etc&gt;/gdm directory, and set the PreFetchProgram configuration
variable so that the gdmprefetch program is called with the default
gdmprefetchlist file. The default gdmprefetchlist file was optimized
for a GNOME desktop running on Solaris, so may need fine-tuning on
other systems. Alternative prefetchlist files can be contributed
to the &quot;gdm&quot; category in
<ulink type="http" url="http://bugzilla.gnome.org/">bugzilla.gnome.org</ulink>,
so that they can be included in future GDM releases.
