Takes about 40 seconds on mine, including logging in from console. Default arch kernel with nothing backgrounded. 5400 RPM drive.And e4rat And it spends half of that time at the bios and grub screens. Anyone could tell me how I could speed that up?
Hello all, I'm new here.Here is my rc.conf DAEMONS line.DAEMONS=(syslog-ng @crond net-auto-wireless @ntpdate dbus iptables)My computer boots very fast. I love it. But, once it does boot, all the way to 'slim', i cannot type for another 5-10 seconds.Can anyone tell me what to do to fix this?
One of the things I like about Ubuntu is the allegedly fast boot time, unfortunately that's not the case for me anymore.
On my computer Ubuntu itself boots up in forty seconds (from choosing Ubuntu in the grub menu to reaching the login screen), and my user boots up in in almost fifty seconds (from entering my password to the appearance of the Dash).
I'm having a problem with my Kubuntu. It's almost a fresh install (I've only installed the typical apps/codecs only).
Sometimes it boots fast, and sometimes it boots slow. It's almost random. So, I installed bootchart and now I bring you the logs of a fast boot and a slow boot. I don't know why dmseg says the boot time is almost the same (~52 seconds).
In Gentoo, How do I allow normal users to shutdown/reboot?
I try to shutdown as my user el but get this response:
el@voyager ~ $ shutdown now
shutdown: you must be root to do that!
Usage: shutdown [-akrhPHfFnc] [-t sec] time [warning message]
-a: use /etc/shutdown.allow
-k: don't really shutdown, only warn.
-r: reboot after shutdown.
When I shutdown my laptop and then turn it on, after choosing kernel version in grub menu, appears a dark (but not black; ubuntu-color if you know what I mean) screen, and almost nothing happens, hdd led not flashing. This 'silent' period continues ~3-4 minutes, and then systme boots up fine. This happens only after I shutdown the notebook, if I just reboot it, it boots up quickly.
Just installed 12.04 today on my main laptop. This'll probably be a more or less permanent setup.
I helped test Precise a decent bit in the beta stages, but no more than ISO installations, so this is my first real look into the new LTS.
The installation was fast, my computer boots in 23 seconds (standard '09 model Toshiba laptop, no upgrades) and everything WORKS.
