long login time


Hello I just updated my system to Mandrake 10.1 and now my login times are incredibly long.
I was reading some posts and I think it has to do with CUPS , is there a way to disable this at startup as I don't need to share a printer or the like? Please correct me if I am wrong.
Thank you.

Disabling cups . . .well you have to remove the cups startup from the rc file. If you look in /etc/rc.d/init.d I believe it is you should see something that has the word cups in it. Try moving that to a tmp folder in that directory and see if it causes boot times to decrease.

yeah polar, I know, we're just trying to localize his issue. I would reinstall cups completely.

You might try the hardware section of the Mandrake Control Panel while you're in a X session.

I have varying luck with the various "drakes" but sometimes they work correctly and can fix things
up quite well.

You can also enable and disable CUPS re: startup, in the "system">"services" section of the
Mandrake Control Panel, along with any other services that are running. You might also see
some other ones in there that you don't need at startup time.

Of course this can all be done manually, too. But I don't mind shortcuts...when they work.
