Booting takes long time (linux machine)


Hi all ;

Recently i have seen one laptop.

Host/Guest Operating system.

OS version is : Oracle Enterprise linux 4.7

When booting the linux server , it takes atleast 20 - 30 mins. What was the problem ? How can i resolve it ?

FYI : When installing linux os , they never allocated /boot area size. So i think space is not sufficient to boot linux machine.

Please provide some relative info to resolve this problem.

1) can i increase /boot area size ?

First, run
Code:
df -h
so we can see what you've got, possibly
Code:
fdisk -l
as well (btw, that's a lowercase L there).

Also, that is a very old distro (basically Oracle rebuild of RHEL, with the same version nums).
See here for why http://www.redhat.com/security/updates/errata/

Why use Oracle Enterprise for learning? Is there a reason not to use CentOs? You can get free support from the CentOs community forums.
