When booting up Fedora 8 the system lags at starting sendmail
then once again at starting cups
. Then finally opens the logon screen. When you enter a password and hit enter it takes _forever_. Finally Gnome starts to load up. Everything is basically screwed up for a minute then bam its all normal. When launching an application (anything even terminal) there is a 20 second plus delay. Internet connection is very slow but only when accessing http (i.e. downloading files is still 140kb/s+, and playing multiplayer games still works just fine)
What I tried
- Disabled sendmail (started up quickly, however logon still took forever and all other problems remain)
- Created another account to see if it was this one. It's not just this user
- Unplugged DSL modem <-- SOLUTION
Okay, so after I unplugged the modem it started up normally, no delays at all. No lag, perfect. Expect now I don't have a modem. After bootup, I plug the modem back in and activate eth0. No applications lag however my internet connection is still VERY slow.
Fedora 8 (Kernel 22.214.171.124.40) x86_64

Note: I've been using this system with out problems non-stop for three months. This just started today! I'm on the system right now.
