View Full Version : Booting very very slow

11th October 2007, 06:03 AM
I have installed Fedora 7 on my system(processor:AMD Athlon).
Right from the beginning there seems to be some problem at the time of booting the system.

It takes a minimum of 20 minutes to boot.

changing from root user to other user and the reverse, takes a lot of time..

I cannot add more users.... useradd does not work.

Please help...

You could install bootchart from development repo and use that to see what exactly is taking all the time.

Is the host name and DNS correctly set up? Or is some process taking all the processor?
