Very long boot time with new ubuntu feisty

I've just upgraded from ubuntu edgy to feisty. With edgy it used to boot in less than minute. Feisy's boot takes 119 seconds.

I think my build-in soundcard (AC97 chip on intel i845E chipsed) is somehow involved.

Here's part of /var/log/messages:

That "clocking" marked with bold takes whole 50 seconds! What can I do with it?

This page might be of some use. Search for the term "clocking to" on it and start reading:


boot, feisty fawn, long, sound, ubuntu
