Slackware14 boot delay


hello, after Slack 14 fresh install i notice long delay at boot time here
Code:
...
[8.771944] [drm] initialized overlay support
[    9.040559] fbcon: inteldrmfb (fb0) is primary device
[    9.225167] Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 160x50
[    9.230264] fb0: inteldrmfb frame buffer device
[    9.230305] drm: registered panic notifier
[    9.230392] [drm] Initialized i915 1.6.0 20080730 for 0000:00:02.0 on minor 0
and then continue normally! should i recompile the kernel with "i915 module" built in !

Before you recompile, I'd suggest adding "compact" to your /etc/lilo.conf (no quotes and near the top of the file). Don't forget to rerun
Code:
# lilo
after editing and reboot.

Please let us know...

HTH.

Thank you Habitual for reply, i think if there is no solution for this issue except for recompiling, i will stick with this issue for a few days (may be 2 or 3 days) and after i will post the result here.

Edit:

Sry, my problem was similar to this, and it was a problem with my wireless card.

Check if udev timeout after i915 module is loaded.

If not, add the i915 module in initrd.

If yes, it is indeed a problem with the wireless card, blacklist it on udev and add it via modprobe in rc.local

yes udev timeout however i blacklisted the modules uses my wireless card (created "/etc/modprobe.d/ipw2200" and added "blacklist ipw2200" and "blacklist libipw", but i still have the same delay.

this issue happens only with kernel 3.* versions.

i forgot to append ".conf" at the end of the blacklist file to become "/etc/modprobe.d/ipw2200.conf" that guarantee the file will not be ignored.

now the delay has gone and everything is smooth!
thank you everybody
