Fedora 11 Update slowed down my boot up

Everything seems to be fine and everything boots up in fedora 11 still; However, the recent updates to my system really hangs my boot time up and it takes a while for it to boot strangely... don't know what exactly could be going on really, but it's doing this for the current and previous kernel of F11.
I'm on Fedora 11 32bit x86.

Anybody else having this problem?

my log file for anybody who wants to even read through it

The nVidia drivers got fixed with the latest RPM fusion updates but the boot is still slow.
I try to avoid brand advertising but yes, the card i have in my computer is a nVidia card but that's been fixed with the latest updates.

I didn't notice any slowdown in the boot process with the newest kernel. If I remember correctly, there was also a hal update. Could that slowdown due to hardware attached to your machine, that will be initialized during the boot?

I too had a slowdown on start-up after yesterdays update (7/23/09). But this was so only on one computer (both run Fedora 11). The old computer, the desktop, has the slowdown whereas the new computer, the laptop, does not.

I did notice for the update that I had some warning message, but did not take note of it (life events). However, got a warning message during updates again today which states this:

“warning: /etc/cups/cupsd.conf created as /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.rpmnew”

I have no idea if it is related or not.

(sorry, I posted this elsewhere before realizing this someone else had start-up slowdown too.)

There's nothing extra on my machine besides a PCI hard drive adapter for older hard drives that aren't SATA.
As I said before though.. it's doing this for both the new and previous kernel now so I dont know what the problem could be... everything runs normal speed when I'm up and running.. I'm just trying to figure out what's hanging my boot up because it's taking around a good 5min at least to boot when I use to be able to boot in well under a minute before the update.

Could that have something to do with the network, for example
- time to aquire IP address
- time to establish internet connection for the first time
- unconfigured/unused sevices (sendmail, ipv6)

Sorry, I am just guessing.

my boot speed also decreased a lot...
after grub, I can see

Welcome to Fedora. Press `I` for interactive startup.
Starting udev

udev then needs about 20 to 30 secs to load, after that everything goes normal...
on the other hand, I can't find any big delays in /var/log/messages, so I assume logging starts after this delay

I tried the same thing yesterday and noticed udev sat there for a very long time. But then tried it again this morning, pressing f1 right from the start, and after loading some stuff it ran into a buffer error starting device fd0, would keep trying and keep failing - once it bypassed the effort everything loaded as normal. When I ran "locate fd0" it looks like fd0 is a floppy disk drive (I'll take the computer apart later, but pretty sure I unplugged the thing long ago.)

Yup , same problem here .

Gets so far in then about 2 min wait . but i have noticed when the delay starts my CD drive light stays on , almost like its waiting for something ,

I have heard from another forum that it looks like its trying to find a floppy drive , maybe onto something

Thanks malkc, I tried disabling all the floppy drive options in my BIOS and it worked.
This seems like it would be a bug, I wonder which piece of software it applies to specifically.
Fedora or the kernel itself.
