    Exclamation 12.04 Extremely Slow

    Hello all,

    I just moved from 11.10 to 12.04 via a fresh install and this version is terribly slow to boot... it took over 5 mins.

    Orginally the system would not boot with out nomodeset in the bootline, with it is takes a long time to boot. I tried switching to fglrx, but both of them fail to install.

    I have a Radeon HD 3500 graphics card, and I am sure this is part of the problem.

    What information can I provide so I can get some help getting this fixed?

    Thanks!
    Brian

    You may want to add information about, CPU, make of computer, and memory . I installed beta 2 a few weeks ago and wanted to see how a clean installation of the final release worked . I just finished an hour ago and all went well. I have to ask if you ran a checksum on the installation disk after making it?

    Hello,

    Thank you for the response.

    It is a Toshiba A305-S6843
    Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 / 2.1 GHz
    4 GB Ram
    ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 - 256.0 MB - graphics card.

    I did not run a checksum on the disk. I will do that now.

    Thanks for any continued help!

    I loaded 12.04 and I also notice a lag in the video. I have an AMD 6 core / Asus M5A88 MoBo w/ ATI radeon 4250 graphics. The desktop effects are slow, Clemintine visualizer will freeze but movies play great. Sounds like a similar problem. Any ideas?

    I ran a md5 via the directions at http://bit.ly/Ki2W4L and it was fine. I dont have the ISO to compare to the md5 hashes Ubuntu lists on their wiki... any other good way to compare the hashes?

    theller: Do you have slow boot problems? Are you using fglrx or what driver?

    I think I am using the fglrx drivers. I went to additional drivers and activated ATI something.

    For an SSD it does seem slow. 10.04 was much quicker.

    I did put some files (Temp and stuff) in the RAM (figured I would use the 16g). Could that have caused a problem?

    I think it war compiz. I activated the cube and that might of messed things up. I f the cube didn't, then me trying to restore compiz and ubiquity did. The beauty of Ubuntu is in 30 min I can install a fresh copy to mess up all over over again.

    Re: 12.04 Extremely Slow - Bootchart Attached!

    I installed Bootchart to provide more details about the boot processes. You can see some parts are taking way too long. Any ideas?

    I uploaded the Bootchart image to Dropbox: http://bit.ly/IJzfIw

    Thanks for any help!

    You're need to post the contents of a dmesg so we can see where it's really hanging up.

    Hello,

    I have attached the dmesg logs as Libre Office .odt files (otherwise the forum wouldn't let me attach them).

    Otherwise you can get the orginial files at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1243306/ubuntu/dmesg and http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1243306/ubuntu/dmesg.0

    Thanks
