Slackware :: Slow Startup (/etc/rc.d/rc.M) With Wireless?

Jan 19, 2010

My Slack takes some time to boot. It hangs about 5 secs in a line that reads:

/etc/rc.d/rc.M: eth1 information: "MySSID" Then, it polls for a DHCP server on eth1 (I didn't write down the exact message). I noticed that if my router is off, the polling process take quite some time to move on.. I tried to look the rc.M, rc.inet1 and rc.wireless scripts, but I couldn't pin point what to change... I tought of adding an '&' at the end of the command that issues the line I quoted and on the DHCP. The DHCP line I didn't search much, I'll try it later...

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Is Slow To Connect At Startup?

Mar 7, 2010

I am running 9.10 on my compaq laptop. I tried linux a couple years ago and was not impressed with it's operation on this machine (wifi didn't work, pain in the butt to make it work) but I just installed 9.10 and to my surprise, everything on this machine seems to work now automatically!

One minor annoyance though, when I boot my machine and the gnome desktop loads, it takes about 1 minute until the wireless finds and connects to my router. Granted, my SSID is set to not broadcast but I set ubuntu to find it as a hidden network and it does in fact work, just takes more time than usual to find and connect. Normally with windows, when it loaded, my wifi was present and connected immediately.

Slackware :: Wireless Keyboard In KDE Slow To Work

Nov 1, 2010

I have a Slackware 13.1 install on a Desktop PC with wireless keyboard and mouse. When I log in it takes a very long time(5 minutes or so) before the keyboard starts working, and f.ex. it's possible to do Alt-F2. The mouse also works slowly in this period, but it is working.

I'm running KDE 4.5.2 on Slackware current, but did have the same problems with the fresh install and KDE4.5.1. When the lag period is over everything is working as normal. I have turned of strigi indexing and could not find anything special when running "ps ax" or "top".

Ubuntu :: Slow Startup, Plymouth Not Showing, Slow Desktop Load?

May 3, 2010

I'm an Ubuntu user since Jaunty, and I've always upgraded my system (NOT fresh install). Everything went fine, but yesterday I upgraded to Lucid. My only concern -for now- deals with startup time. I'm a desktop user (Core2@3GHz) so I think I should boot in less than 10 seconds. Anyway, boot time is 30 seconds - not too much, but there is definetly something wrong with tools I don't know (ureadahead, plymouth, etc.). Attached is my bootchart: can anyone explain me what's wrong?

Also, I don't even see a plymouth Ubuntu themed bootsplash: I only see a blank (black) screen standing for seconds, then I see the bootsplash for less then half a second, then GDM appears :S Not crucial -I know- but how can I fix it? (I don't know if it's related, but I can see the animation at shutdown)Finally, GNOME desktop takes too long to load. I don't know why, but there are 15/30 seconds in between login sound and a usable desktop (with panels and icons, I mean).Please help me, I don't want to do a fresh install. Boot speed is not a dial with desktops - I know - but it can be a symptom that my system is a bit a messy (and I don't like it, since I installed Jaunty less then 1 year ago). (!Forgot! I also installed grub2 by hand

Ubuntu :: Slow Startup / Why Is So?

Feb 15, 2010

An other general question,

I have installed ubuntu the same day on 2 PCs, my laptop with an athlon 64 x2 and 4Gb of RAM DDR3 and my very old PC, athlon XP2400 with 1Gb of DDR2 memory (if i remember well)

It starts in 20 seconde on the old PC and around 1 minute on my laptop, honestly it bugs me, any ideas why it is so slow on my laptop? I do have a 2 seconds for grubs, but still...

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Painfully Slow Wireless Throughput On Atheros AR5001 Card

Aug 12, 2010

I have a Acer Revo R3610 nettop on which I installed oS11.3. It has an Atheros AR5001 wireless network adaptor.I'm getting very bad latency and throughput on with this card. In comparison my Thinkpad with Intel card achieves at least 10 times the throughput from the same location. Also when I boot my wifi will come up authenticate and then a few seconds later disconnect and reconnect. I've tried updating the kernel to 2.6.35 as one of the fixes was to improve the performance of the ath5k driver. I'm using wpa2 authentication.

Here are some details:


mediacentre:~ # /sbin/lspci -nnk
00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: nVidia Corporation MCP79 Host Bridge [10de:0a82] (rev b1)
Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] Device [1025:0222]


Is there anything else I paste that will help determine the cause of the bad throughput. Browsing the web or copying files across the network is bordering unusable.

OpenSUSE Install :: Slow Startup After Login / Speed It Up?

Nov 1, 2010

What can I do to speed up the start-up after login?

I am running OpenSuse 11.3 with Gnome on my laptop (Acer Travelmate 2490) and I need about two and a half minutes from login until the hard disk lamp 'settles down'. This is much longer than I have been used to expect from earlier OpenSus versions. Are there some default applications/processes I could ditch?

Ubuntu :: Slow Startup 3 Minutes From Bootloader To Desktop?

Mar 29, 2011

Ever since a standard update a couple weeks ago I've had a myriad of problems, the biggest one though being boot time. Here's what happens when I turn on the machine: From bootloader (splash) to kernel loader (blinking cursor) = 50 sec. Kernel loader to splashscreen = 20 sec. Splashscreen to login prompt = 55 sec.login prompt to keyboard working = 26 sec. (wireless, wired works right away) Logging in to Desktop = 25 sec. 176 secs = ALMOST 3 MINUTES UNTIL I'M IN THE DESKTOP!!

That's worse than Vista. I've tried a number of things. For the Bios I read disabling floppy helps. I tried installing bootchart to see what's going on but it won't load save the .png file..? I installed bum and disabled some services. I tried profiling in grub... Nothing has made anything any better.

No idea why it takes so long for my wireless keyboard to start working. I'm really not sure where to start here since it's loading so slow at every point of the startup process.

General :: System Laptop Slow Startup / Reason Of This?

Oct 21, 2010

Just got this Dell M4400 with Redhat EL5 installed.
After I setup the xorg.conf for dual monitor, the startup became extremely slow. Once I type in the user name and password, it just blacks out with the mouse curser still visible. This remains for about 3-4 minutes and then I'm in.

I thought it was my X file, so I overwrote the xorg.conf with my original file and restarted my X. Sadly, it still does that.

What could be causing it? Do I have to reinstall video driver or something?

Debian Configuration :: Wheezy Xfce 4.8 VERY SLOW First Thunar Startup

May 16, 2011

I upgraded my main PC's Xfce 4.6 to Xfce 4.8 this morning.Now, every time I start Thunar for the first time after a new boot, it takes about 30 seconds to appear, and then about 10 seconds later, a second instance of it appears.After that, Thunar appears instantly every time I start it during that same session. But if I shut-down or restart my PC, Thunar again takes about 30 seconds to start up, and a second instance of it appears about 10 seconds later.

Google searches seem to indicate that people running other distros are also experiencing this problem. On advice in a different forum, I deleted the ~/.config/Thunar folder and restarted my PC, but that didn't help -- it created a new Thunar folder, but the long delay and the double-Thunars are still there every time I run Thunar for the first time in a session.

General :: Java Apps Slow Startup When Connected To Network?

Aug 11, 2011

I'm using Arch Linux with kernel 3.0 and brcmsmac to manage my wireless card. My desktop environment is KDE 4.7 and I use networkmanager to handle network. Recently I've been affected by a weird problem wherein whenever I'm connected to a network Java apps such as jEdit take ~30 seconds longer to start but behave normal once started. What could it be due to and how can I fix it?EDIT:The problem occurs both with Oracle's JRE and OpenJDK, both versions 1.7. I'm behind a HTTP proxy, if that makes a difference.EDIT:I've discovered the cause of this problem. My /etc/hosts file had the wrong host name in it. After correcting this to my hostnameeverything is fine.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Terminal Startup Slow (11 Natty Edition)?

Aug 16, 2011

After several upgrades (from 8.xx) I noticed Gnome terminal took about 4 seconds to open an window and another 4 seconds to give me a prompt. This is excruciating when blasting out CLI in dozens of terminals ssh'd into dozens of machines. Tabs were no different.

Fix was: Comment out anything in ~/.bashrc that references xterm. BOOM less than 1s total to prompt.

If it's faster than I can get my mouse hand back to the keyboard to start blasting CLI, it's good enough

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Slow Wireless On Acer Aspire One

Apr 17, 2010

I haven't done Linux since before it had Wireless support, and have never had to tinker with network settings, so I am at a loss.My searching may be weak, but when I tried, I found nothing relevant except to determine some of the things usually asked for in threads of this nature.The symptom is very slow connection when using wireless, but it does fine when I hardwire it. Using Windows 7 on the same system it flows nicely.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Download Speeds Seems To Be Slow

Oct 28, 2010

I have managed to compile and load the RaLink drivers for my wifi card and get an internet connection.My problem is that when I do a broadband speed test on using chrome I get about 1.5 Mbs and on my laptop (Windows 7 meh :-( ) its closer to 7Mbs. I was wondering if there are any other settings I can modify or tweak that could potentially change to improve this. or maybe a better way to test the through put of my connection?I downloaded the latest drivers for my device from Ralink and compiled new module, but I get a little confused on what settings to do and where it reads any configuration information from.

Also this may be off topic or thread, if so I apologise, but I am sure there is a quick answer to this and there is a lot of different information out there on where and how I load my new rt3562sta.ko module into the kernel on start up. As currently I am calling insmod on it manually every time I start up then the Network Manager picks it up and connects.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Slow Wireless After Upgrade To 11.4?

Mar 20, 2011

I have an Acer Aspire 5920G laptop, which uses Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG wireless card. I upgraded from 11.3 to 11.4 using live upgrade and after the upgrade wireless internet became really slow. Now I'm back to 11.3. I experienced the same problem with speed when I was choosing Linux distro - first I tried Fedora and Ubuntu and both had the same problem, but when I tried openSUSE 11.3 it worked fine. With 11.4 Network Manager showed that signal is at 100% and it connected to router with normal speed, but when I tried downloading a file I got 30kB/s max, while I used to get 1,1 MB/s with windows and 11.3. I also noticed that right after boot I got decent speed, but it only lasted for less than a couple of minutes.

Since 11.4 should have better or at least the same driver as 11.3, problem is probably with configuration, but I am using NetworkManager, so I have no idea what could be wrong.

Slackware :: 13.1 - Xpdf Very Slow And Cpu Goes To 100%

Nov 14, 2010

I'm gonna tell you about slackware installation on my notebook, an acer travelmate 800lci.

On this notebook, I successfully installed (and work with) slackware from version 10.0 till the recent 13.0. Upgrading to a new version till using a new internal hard disk (from 40 GB to 160 GB). After upgrade I fully reinstall slackware 12.2 and then upgrade to 13.0.

Now, I had to use the notebook for testing, so I made a new full installation of slackware 13.0 and after some time a new full installation of slackware 13.1.

On this disk (160 GB P-ATA) I have to pass the following parameter to the kernel:

during installation and boot.

This operation solve the issue that can "see" the full size of the disk (160 GB) and not the 137 GB limit.

Only using slackware 13.1, occur a big (for me) problem.

I can fully reproduce it opening any pdf document with xpdf: moving into document with arrow keys make the cpu goes to 100% and page "fault/s" goes from 30 to 8000 and some times 15000 "fault/s". So, xpdf becomes unusable. This problem reflects in similar manner to other software, like firefox.

Here is my question: what type of analisys could I try to solve/analyze this issue? Maybe the kernel, xorg?

On slackware 13.0 all works perfectly.

Slackware :: Slow DSN Lookup With 64

Sep 7, 2010

I've been comparing the current Slackware 32 bit versus 64 bit, and I've noticed that the 64 bit version is as slow as dialup for domain name lookup.

The 32 bit version is very fast to find websites after a mouse click, whereas the 64 bit version takes forever looking up URLs. (using Firefox)

All the other 64 bit Linuxes seem to be the same way, not just Slackware.

The /etc/resolve.conf file is the same for 32 or 64 bit Slackware, but something is not right. The 32 bit version has a /etc/dhcpc directory, but not the 64 bit version.

Could this be causing the extreme slowdown?

It's really very irritating when the rest of the system is blazing fast.

Slackware :: Run Script On X Startup?

May 5, 2010

I want to run some script/command (for setup keyboard layout) on X startup. I need a desktop independent solution, e.g. which works when user starts KDE, Fluxbox or any another window manager.

Users start X server manually by typing startx in console. As I understand, I can use ~/.xsession file to run my script. But when I make ~/.xsession executable, add to the end strings from script and restasrt X nothing happens.

My system is Slackware 12.2. Here is a command I want to run

Slackware :: Enable Windows Wireless Drivers In Slackware 13.1 And How To Install XFCE

Aug 22, 2010

I recently installed Slackware Linux 13.1 , and my Wireless is down. I've only installed 3 Linux disto's on my main laptop (Ubuntu 9.10 , 10.04 , and Crunchbang Linux 9.04 , just had Crunchbang), and they all had the same problem. In all three , I was able to enable Windows Wireless drivers and every thing worked. Now , I'm assuming I have to the same ting in Slackware? Sorry , but I have no idea what my wireless card is. But I know that my laptop is a Dell Insprion E1705. One last thing , I did ifconfig and that wlan0 is my Wi-Fi interface. I typed ifconfig wlan0 up to see if that was the problem. After I did that , I got and error message. Then I typed ifconfig wlan0 down to see if it was down and it made wlan0 down. I tried bringing it up again , but I got an error saying it couldn't find the device specified. Also , how do I install XFCE? I really don't like KDE for some reason and would like to install XFCE. I chose XFCE over GNOME (my favorite) because I want to try something new.

Slackware :: New 13 X64 Installation - Slow DNS Lookup ?

Mar 31, 2010

I've been cracking on with getting a new Slackware 13 x64 installation going. I've got a problem with browsing the net which I can't put my finger on.

When I try to access a site my machine spends a long time with the "Looking up" message at the bottom. It can take 7-12 seconds before the site is found. Normally I would blame this on my ISP or connection but Mint, Debian and Windows XP aren't having this problem, they just zip straight to the site whether I've been to it before or not.

Is anybody aware of where the problem might be? It's not in the browser either because Opera, Seamonkey and Firefox all have the same problem issue.

Slackware :: PSX Emulator Extremely Slow On 12.2

I downloaded the emulator called pSX so i can play my playstation cds in my computer. on my laptop i have slackware 12.2 installed.

The dependencies for the emulator are:

I found the appropriate packages for all of these (with the exception of opengl, I assume that means it's preinstalled, correct me if I'm wrong) and installed them. the emulator runs, at about a quarter the speed it's supposed to. I get no error messages in the terminal, just the huge speed drop. has anybody else gotten this emulator to work fine in slackware?
