Long initial bootup and slow performance
Both “Sendmail” and “smclient” are taking approximately 15 seconds to start up on load.
Since trying to install gcc, and making a total hash of it, due to not being able to find any documentation in my download, and unable to find any documentation online, my system is now taking an age to do anything.
Upon booting it will stall on these items, and then proceed to do not much for about 15 seconds for each of them (and a further 5 seconds on “cups”).
I was wondering how I could fix this without having to reinstall everything.
Once I have actually booted into Linux, it is still taking ages to load anything up. Looking at System monitor in KDE, I can see that it will do nothing for approx 7 seconds, and then load the program. For instance if I click on “home” it will wait for 7 seconds, and then the CPU will jump and the application will load, I was wondering if this could be fixed somehow?
Thanks for any advice.
