View Full Version : [ubuntu] Slow startup after 11.10 upgrade

December 1st, 2011, 02:16 AM
Slow startup after installing 11.10 on Toshiba Satelite. Noticed long delay at tail of Syslog:
between 19:43:50 and 19:48:44.

Sometimes opening the GRUB (holding shift at startup if you don't know) and selecting a kernel just one revision below the default speeds things up a lot while still using the same version of Ubuntu. so instead of using xx.xx.14, use xx.xx.13.

Hope that helps.

Thanks, I'm new to Ubuntu so not too familiar with your instruction. I tried to hold down shift after starting the OS. It didn't do anything I could notice. I didn't see anywhere I could select a different kernel. If you get a chance, could you dummy-it down a little for me ? :)
