Mandrake slow if internet not connected?!?!?
I have installed mandrake 9.1 w/ fairly standard install options. If I run any app, say Kolf, Konquorer, kwrite, etc w/ the cable modem powered off (or the network cable unplugged) it takes about two minutes for the program to start. If the cable modem is running, internet connected, the app starts right away (within 5 seconds.)
The same thing seemed to happen on RH 9 also. Any suggestions?
I use an ethernet card to connect to my cable modem. Also, if I open a shell, my hostname comes up "user@X1-6-00-a0..."
Thanks in advace.
