Further Reply to post 'RH 8.0 on Dell Optiplex starts services slowly.'
It doesn't seem to be hardware related-
1 - happens upon a reboot, so I would assume that a memory leak has been cleared up, at least temporarily..
2. I moved the HD to another Dell Optiplex (different type system- GX270, I think)
and it did the same thing booting up-
I haven't tried it on plain clone hardware, since I don't have a spare system like that-
this place is _totally_ Dell-ified...
I would also assume that a system-specific hardware problem would occur almost immediately, not after the system's been up for a while, with the exception of a memory leak- which a shutdown-power down of the system should fix..
I've had this problem three times with this:
1. RH9.0 load on this platform- after about 3 weeks, one day I noticed I couldn't login quickly- rebooted the server, and it started slowly- Kernel loads fast, but when it gets to services (I forget which one is first) but, right from the start, ALL the services take about 5 mins each..
2. I formatted and rebuilt the system on RH9.0 - it quit for about a week-
then did the same thing exactly....
3. Then, I rebuilt it (ground up again) on 8.0, thinking I had a RH9 incompatibility issue-
Now the 8.0 system is doing it- as mentioned above, I've swapped hardware "out from under the drive" -
This ONLY happens in runlevels 345 - not in single user mode at all...
The only two areas I can think of that this could be is some failure on the part of the drive-
The argument for this is that I'm now running in single user mode, starting the services I need (mrtg, ssh, httpd) manually, and it's just fine-
The other area is that this _could_ be a DNS error of some sort-
but I've got it right, I think....
nslookup returns correct info from other systems-
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
