Why is my computer taking so long to boot? (Boot log attached)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 25, 2012
After spending four days straight trying to get my new Linux Mint installation to boot up, I switched to LiLo instead of GRUB and spent another 2 days trying to get that working. I got it, but it's taking a mind numbingly long time to boot. Almost an hour. Somebody said they added this line to their boot instructions (libata.dma=0 libata.noacpi=1) but I don't think it's doing anything. Below is my boot log that I generated using dmesg:

Why does it take so long to login to a console?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 13, 2014
I use Linux Mint 16 Xfce on my Asus Eee PC netbook. Whenever I switch to a console (Ctrl + Alt + F[something]) and login, it takes forever for the bash prompt to appear. Entering my user name and password is pretty quick, but then it hangs at that "Last login: whatever" line for about 30 seconds, then the bash prompt finally appears. How can I speed this up?

Why do large PDFs take so long to load in Linux PDF viewers, but not in Foxit (Wine)?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 3, 2013
I'm a student, i've been doing a master's thesis recently and so accumulated a lot of PDFs. Evince (the default under Ubuntu Unity or Cinnamon) can't really do much, so I hunted around, installed Foxit Reader 5 and 6 under Wine with Playonlinux (it did a perfect job! ) and then settled on Okular (the KDE viewer) because it had the benefit of being native, faster than Evince, had more features (annotations!) and was even very hackable: I even found out how to tweak an XML file ( ~/.kde/share/apps/okular/tools.xml ), and made myself a bunch of extra highlighters in lots of different colours (link)
BUT although it is still a lot faster than Evince, especially since I got myself some more RAM, Okular still struggled a lot on large, complex PDFs such as this one (a detailed map of the paris metro system). So I switched back to Foxit (5 and 6 under Wine) to have a look, and lo and behold, it loaded in about 2 seconds instead of 20 or 30?!!
Why is it like this? It's disapp
Why does "Starting sendmail" take so long at boot up
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 14, 2004
I'm having a problem with Fadora Core 2. When I boot up, and it's going through the initialization there is a halt about halfway through for about 2-3 minutes.
Does anyone know why the line "starting sendmail" takes forever to "OK"
Thanks in advance
Why does kernel compilation take so long?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 7, 2014
Not sure this is on topic for this forum...
Anyway - compiling the default full NetBSD kernel takes ~30 minutes on my dual-core laptop, with only one thread going. Compiling e.g. a Slackware default kernel takes several hours, with 3 threads.
Does anyone know the reason for this? It has to be something more than just "Linux has lots more drivers," doesn't it?
Why does my PC sit so long on the blue screen with the Fedora "f"?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 12, 2009
I'm trying to install Fedora for the first time on a Dell Optiplex 760. It's loaded with HD space and 4gig of memory. I'm booting from the CD and it gets to the Blue screen with the "f" in the center and just sits there for what seems like forever?
Why does my flash drive take so long to mount?

I have a 16GB USB drive that seems to take ages to mount in Ubuntu 14.04. I have formatted it several times using gparted NTFS (so I can also use on windows) but still takes a long time to mount.
Why does Ubuntu run so hot?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 1, 2008
So I am running both Ubuntu and Vista on a 2.66 Ghz Dual core, 4GB of RAM and an ATI X1900GT. Vista runs super smooth and barely uses any resources. On the other hand, Ubuntu turn on the heatsink fan of the CPU all the way (which only happens in Vista when I play games on ful res) and all I am doing is Firefox, music player and few folders open at the same time. Also scrolling in Firefox is a little slow too. It can't be my hardware so what else can it be?
