    I'm running 10.5.8 on my MBA. Lately I noticed when I start terminal, the program seems to launch right away. However the terminal window stays blank for a long time before the command prompt shows up. during this time usage of Safari becomes very slow too so feels like it's hugging on to some resource.

    Any clue how I can fix this without reinstalling everything?

    delete the *.asl log files and it will be much snappier again

    sudo rm -f /private/var/log/asl/*.asl
