[ubuntu] Slow boot time

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – On my portable computer Alienware M11x running Ubuntu, any kernel version after boots up in an appallingly slow fashion. will boot at least 3 or 4 times faster then any of the newer kernel. Any idea what changed post that would explain this ? Newer kernels are of course nice but until I figure out why booting them is so slow it will be hard to switch. The newer kernels bring me back to the old windows days and that is no good... (Hardware)
