ubuntu 8.10 server slow to log on
ubuntu 8.10 server running ssh, vsftpd, apache2, smb.
Boot to level 3 only (MultiUser, no GUI). I do not have vnc or any other graphical process running.
This is a Linux Server for network services, I almost never use the keyboard and use the monitor even less.
My problem is ssh login takes over a minute after user/password. Other Linux machines take seconds to present a prompt. This ubuntu 8.10 server takes minutes.
Starting a 2nd shell (/bin/bash) or switching users (su -) is not as long but it is still 10-15 seconds, much longer than a comparable FC5 setup.
It is not the bash login scripts. The delay appears to happen after user/pw and before /bin/bash.
Does anyone else have issues with ubuntu 8.10 server taking so long to login?
