Its taking about 2 or 3 minutes for boot and startup...


Hello
I have ubuntu 10.10 installed
When it was new It was too speedy in starting up
but, Now It is taking about two to three minutes to getting started.
I tried to remove some applications from System/Preferences/Startup Applications,But no difference.

I want to speed up my system
It has no problem in speed after starting up

Thanks

Can you post your - /var/log/kernel.log and /var/log/messages.log file's in here
you can do that by

cat /var/log/kernel.log
cat /var/log/messages.log

First off you need to find out what is slowing your computer down during start up. Is it hardware? Is it a new service you installed with apt-get? Is it a time out issue mapping to an NFS share??? These logs will give you that information, and a lot more.

Now that we know what your logs are called. You can cat them and search for time stamps on each thing that is loaded and look for errors and time outs.

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 869 2011-01-27 20:08 boot.log <- inspect that first
-rw-r----- 1 syslog adm 495639 2011-01-27 20:12 messages
-rw-r----- 1 syslog adm 599059 2011-01-27 20:12 kern.log

now try
sudo cat /var/log/kern.log
sudo cat /var/log/messages
sudo cat /var/log/boot.log

make a bootchart !

you could make a bootchart to visualize your booting sequence. Makes it much easier to see, what takes up how much time.

Install bootchart from the repositories (apt-get install bootchart). Then reboot with the parameter "init=/sbin/bootchartd". You can add the parameter to the kernel line by pressing "e" in the grub menu.

You will then get a file which looks like this:

http://s7.directupload.net/file/u/22...c34nke_png.htm

As you can see, it takes pretty long for me as well

Thats actually a pretty cool visual program... Wish we had this for work, so I can show my clients visually why it takes so long... lol

I still prefer to look at time stamps... I'm just stubborn... lol
