[ros-users] Rviz Slow to Receive Messages

Hey all,
I have been working with a urdf model for a while in boxturtle and recently I've made the jump to cturtle. My issue now is that when I fire up Rviz, my model (except for the base link) shows up as a jumbled mess and Rviz is giving me a Robot error saying it's not receiving a transform to all the links from the base link.  After a few minutes, Rviz will realize that it is receiving messages and the change the robot status to OK and then after a little while more the mess will show up as the model.  

It's also worth it to note I am getting this in the terminal when I launch Rviz:

gavin at gavindesktop:~/.ros/log$ rosrun rviz rviz 
shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory
[ INFO] [1280358272.133360507]: Loading general config from [/home/gavin/.rviz/config]
[ INFO] [1280358272.136910175]: Loading display config from [/home/gavin/.rviz/display_config]
sh: getcwd() failed: No such file or directory
sh: getcwd() failed: No such file or directory


It's also noteworthy that the machine I'm working on is super old (and fairly slow)

Thanks in advance
