Thread: S - L - O - W Boot with new kernel

  1. S - L - O - W Boot with new kernel


    Two minutes just sitting on the Mandriva splash screen (no hard drive
    activity) after the boot menu screen. Then (2:02 after the boot menu)
    it drops into the detail mode displaying the steps in the boot sequence.
    Timings are the same for three separate boots.

    I don't think its the hardware: Intel DP35DP motherboard, Core2Duo
    E6600, nVidia 7950GT, 4gb memory, fast WD 500gb hard drive.

    Partitions: 1gb /boot, 50gb /, 4gb swap remainder in /home.

    (No, its NOT this Windows machine.)

    Hard disk access not set to DMA?

    See if the workaround in

    helps.

    I had the same problem some time ago after messing up things myself.
    See the below thread (whatch for line wrap). The magic trick to solve this
    was given by David W Hodgins. ("chkconfig messagebus reset").
    I don't know what this command does or what it corrects so maybe it's best
    to wait for a second opinion.

    Its set to DMA. Was booting fast before the update.

    Forgot to mention the rest:

    2009.0 installed from One
    Gnome
    All updates installed

    Can't tell. I shut down last night very frustrated in not being able to
    isolate and identify the problem after numerous boots. Reinstalled
    first thing this morning, went through the same installation process (as
    best I could remember), upgraded to the new kernel. No problems, no
    hangs on boot.
