Booting SLack is slow! HELP!!!


Hi folks,

now i have one lil problem, it's not a real problem but it's bothering me, so i would like to get rid of it. when i start Slack , i see on the screen the message:

insmod: i810_rng.o.gz failed cardmgr

& this make my PC start slow. i get lots of that message on the screen, so i though that if i can stop it, Slack will start much faster. so i am looking forward for your help guys.

The Slack forum is great, people help so much, so i thought i would say THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

I googled around for "i810_rng"; there's actually a few threads here on linuxquestions.org about it. It seems to be a random number generator for some Intel motherboards.

One thread suggests that you edit your /etc/hotplug/blacklist file and list your unwanted module there. (Although the thread discusses the i810 audio module, the same principle should apply to the i810_rng module). This seems to be a sensible option to try, since it's easily reversible.

The other option is to recompile your kernel, but that effort is probably not worth it.

Thanks for your question; I didn't know about /etc/hotplug/blacklist before.

I added it to the bottom of the /etc/hotplug/blacklist in this format
i810_rng

I rebooted and I am still getting the error of it failing to load. Hmm

I did some more searching and found this

1. The i810_rng.o.gz is for the random number generator. To fix do this:
cd /etc/hotplug
pico blacklist
scroll down until you find i810-tco underneath it put i810_rng
it is working now

I moved it to that spot instead of the bottom of /etc/hotplug/blacklist

I would not have thought that would make any difference, it must.
