Ubuntu :: Taking A Long Time To Start Up Programs?

Jan 3, 2011

I don't know if it is just me but it seems like Ubuntu takes a long time to start up programs. For example, it takes me 10 seconds to start up "Ubuntu software center". My computer is a relatively fast one. It has 4 gb of ram and an intel core duo processor. I didn't install that many programs. Does anyone know what might be the source of the problem and how to fix it?

Ubuntu Installation :: GDM Taking Long Time To Come Up After Updates?

Mar 26, 2010

I have just made a clean install of Ubuntu 9.10 and after installing all updates, GDM is taking a long time (about one minute) to come up after a clean boot, resulting in a regular console prompt.

If I issue "sudo service gdm start" it does come up promptly.

What can I do? Where can I see startup logs to try and identify any problems?

Ubuntu :: BZ2 Compression Surely Taking Long Time

Dec 8, 2010

I compressed a directory containing many image files. The directory amounted to 5.3gig. Compressed with TAR using .tgz the compression took a couple minutes at most and compressed down to 4.3 gig. Compressed using .bz2 the compression took about 90 minutes and compressed down to 4.2 gig. Hardly worth the extra time. Do these numbers look normal to you?

Software :: K3b - Copying Commercial DVD - Taking A Long Time

Jul 24, 2011

I purchased a special collection boxed Superman set for my 10 year old daughter in May for her birthday and recently some second hand Zumba DVD's. My daughter is quite hard on DVD's. So I have as asked her to wait whilst I have them copied.

I will be using the Zumba regularly and know they will suffer so want use copies and save the originals.

I have done some reading and I think I have everything installed correctly.

I tried K9copy, but it immediately closed. I then tried K3b and noticed I needed 99GB of space. (I wonder if that is why K9copy closed?) The only thing I have that big is my backup external drive.

So I connected it up. I only had about 44 GB of space on it. I ticked for half the tracks which needed less space. So now there was enough space. I then clicked on rip DVD. It has been doing it continuously for 2 nights and is up to 24%.

So at this rate it will take a week to copy half a DVD to my drive and then I have to burn it to a DVD. This can't be right, can it?

I am running OpenSuse 11.3

Ubuntu :: Basic Graphic Actions Taking Long Occurrence Time

Jul 8, 2010

It takes an exceptionally long time for basic graphic actions to occur like switching tabs in Firefox, redrawing windows that have been (un)maximized/minimized, and switching between windows. My video card is not a bad one, a GeForce 9500 GT and Windows handles it just fine. I'm using the current NVIDIA drivers 265.35. It seems like if I can't get some better response time I'll be using Windows much more.

Ubuntu :: Running Postinst Hook Script /usr/sbin/update-grub Taking A Long Time?

Apr 15, 2010

Running first upgrade after installing 9.10.

Currently on item "Configuring linux-image-2.6.31-20-generic" and the progress bar/terminal readout has not changed for an hour or so I'd say.

Don't want to cause issues by killing it halfway through, especially as it presents an opportunity to learn something!

Ubuntu Networking :: Running Remote Programs For A Long Time?

Mar 14, 2010

I suspect this has been posted before, but I'm new enough to the OS to lack the proper vocab for a proper search.

In any case, I'm basically trying to run programs remotely at work (from home) that will run for a long time. I first ssh into the appropriate network, then ssh into the individual machine. This works great and I can run programs no problem. The issue is that these programs can run for days or weeks, and the network kicks me out after some period of time due to inactivity.

Is there a way to start a program on a remote machine then terminate the connection but have it keep running?

General :: Vim Takes Long Time To Start ?

Feb 23, 2010

I'm having trouble with Vim in any terminal emulator I use. I have a link (vi) to vim. Occasionally it will take very long to load, whether I use 'vi' or 'vi file'. Before, if I could I would restart X, and then it would load instantly again, but I waited this time and it did load, after a minute or so. Is this a problem with X or vim?

Debian Multimedia :: Xfce Takes A Long Time To Start?

Mind you this is a 2.8 GHz Core 2 Duo machine.I have tried logging out, mv-ing ~/.config/xfce4 from a tty console, and logging back in, but the problem persists.I am running Xfce from squeeze.

CentOS 5 :: X/Gnome Takes Long Time To Load And Sudo Takes Long Time To Execute

Oct 13, 2009

I am running Centos 5.3. I ran no updates, performed no installs, nor changed any configuration immediately prior to this issue. My problem is this: when I run the command startx (default runlevel 3), it is a long time (5-10 minutes) before Gnome startx, and once it does start applications will not run. Also, when I try to use sudo (from any environment, even ssh), it is a long time (5-10) before the command is executed.

I cannot say for sure, but it seems like this is an intermittent problem. Sometimes X takes a long time to start, but once it starts it will launch programs. Sometimes X takes a long time to launch, but once it starts it will only launch certain programs. Though presently X always takes a long time to start, and I cannot successfully launch any programs.

A while back a had a similar problem to this (x taking long time to start, sudo taking long time to execute) and it ended up being a DNS problem. Unfortunately, I cannot remember exactly what it was and I stupidly did not document it. Maybe this is also DNS related, I don't know.

I don't know what log files to look at for problems with X, Gnome, and sudo taking a long time to start.

General :: Find Command Taking Too Long On Ubuntu 10.10

Aug 11, 2011

The find command is taking too long on my machine to complete. When I use time command, I find that sys time and user time are too small as compared to real time. Is my find process not getting scheduled properly?

I interrupted the neverending find command and got the following statistics:

Real time : 5min
Sys time : 1.1 sec
User time : 3 sec

I was running

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade To F15 Taking Too Long To Run

May 28, 2011

I switched to Fedora from Ubuntu about a month ago, and I've been very happy so far. But today I started the upgrade to Fedora 15, and something isn't right. I used the preupgrade method, and the package download took a respectable 30-40 minutes, then I was prompted to reboot my machine. I did so, about 4 hours ago. It took about 2 hours to get to the point where it says it's installing the packages, and 2 hours to get to where it is as I write this, at 116 completed packages out of 1634.

I'm pretty sure this isn't normal for ANY distribution. The machine itself is about 6 months old, so I'm pretty sure it's not a hardware issue. I'm considering interrupting the upgrade and doing a clean install, but I was wondering, is there anything I can do before resorting to the clean install option?

Fedora :: F15 Taking Extremely Long To Boot?

Aug 21, 2011

I just want to find out if anybody else is having a similar issue before I start trying to disable services one by one. When I boot in to F15, everything runs fine up to were it starts loading the CUPS module then it hangs for about 2 to 3 minutes, the next thing to load is Samba shares. So it could be either of these or it could have nothing to do with them. Just to add that I made 100% sure that all my samba shares mount fine and are online and have no shares mounting in my fstab file.

Ubuntu Servers :: Emails Taking Unusually Long To Deliver (1-5min)

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on a VPS with linode.I run around 10 sites from this vps and whenever I try to do anything thats related at all to email (such as user registration, contact form submission) the process itself can take anywhere from one to five minutes. I realize that this is most likely due to a misconfiguration with how my email has been set up.

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot From USB Connected External Hard Take Long Time From Loading INITRD Image To Start Boot Process?

Jul 18, 2011

I have installed "open-SUSE 11.4" on a "500GB Free Agent External Hard Drive". I didn't have any problem in booting since last week that I booted it from my laptop. Also I did it before several times from then when I try to boot it e.g. from an "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz" PC the time between loading INITRD and starting boot sequence messages lasts nearly 30 minutes!(i didn't actually measure it but it take a long time in the same order). after starting boot sequence which is showed on monitor everything looks normal. e.g copy of files would be done by speeds between 2MB/s to 30 MB/s depending on the targets.I used to use the external hard derive to boot from different laptops and PC's from start but I didn't have such a problem anytime.

Ubuntu :: After Log In Takes Long Time To Show Desktop, Monitor Events At Log In Time?

May 24, 2011

It takes me a while to log in the splash screen just sits there for ages before i get to the desktop. Never used to be this slow and I'm not sure why. Firstly, I'm running Ubuntu 11.04, standard DE. I do have conky starting up in a script but it has the & at the end of the line so I didn't think this would cause it (or is there some special case for log in time on how & is treated?). However as a test I will comment out the line in the script and see if it is the cause.

However just for general knowledge and in case that isn't the problem, how does one go seeing what is happening during the time from when one log's in and the desktop is displayed? Is there some kind of log that shows the date/time that can be enabled or is there a debug mode that can be enabled somehow via special keys or maybe from grub?

Ubuntu :: Connection - Load A Website Taking To Long To Respond And Sometimes Doesn't Load

Oct 2, 2010

When i open one of the web browsers i use and try to load a web site it's taking to long to respond and sometimes it doesnt load the website at all. I have tried with firefox,epiphany,opera with all the same results. I am sure that this is not a problem with my internet connection because i don't have these problems with windows.Also the network manager connection settings are correct

I also tried choosing the old kernel( to boot from but no success.The problem is the same as if i am using the kernel. The strange thing is that i can download packages from synaptic with full speed. Last think.I have recently downloaded the recommended updates from the update manager but i don't remember what are the things that where updated.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Taking Longer Time (90 Seconds) To Boot

Nov 7, 2010

My ubuntu(10.10) installation takes a relatively longer time (90 seconds) to boot. I think part of the problem might be related to an error message during boot related to usb drivers.
[2.717076] usb 4-1: new low speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 2
[3.244051] usb 4-2: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 3

Fedora :: Fortran Programs And Long Path Names Input's

Apr 30, 2010

I have a fortran program example call like this:

This call cant run my fortran program because they output to the screen that the file ' ' (empty) cant be loaded!

So the problem is that my program cant see the file in the long path name above ( the real name is a bit more longer). I try with shorts path names , and the program can run, reading the input file.

I googleit for this type of error and only found that bash have limits on the filenames and inputs, so i change them (/usr/local/linux/limits.h or some like) to a very high value (999) ,but no success.
