View Full Version : [ubuntu] slow boot up after upgrade

November 21st, 2009, 08:09 PM
I upgraded one of my 9.04 installations to 9.10 the other day and ever since then the boot time is extremely slow. When the computer is first turned on I am greeted with the grub 2 loader. Then, after i make a selection to boot the system the default 2.6.31 kernel it gives me a blinking underscore in the top left side of the screen for about 1-2 minutes. After that, the console login shows for about 10 seconds followed by the loading screen and the desktop.

I have upgraded to the newest grub 2 (1.97.1) - i thought that might be the problem - but it still happens. does anyone have any suggestions?
