Slow startx and slackpkg update resolving.
Startx is once again taking about 10 seconds for x to start. It used to be practically instantaneous. My two 64 bit laptops and 64 bit desktop exhibit the same anomaly. This slow startup happened once before, but I guess current updates fixed it, until now.
Another problem is with slackpkg update and upgrade. The program stalls for about 10 seconds resolving the mirror - any mirror.
This problem also appeared before, and then fixed itself.
My 32 bit slack current desktop at work still speeds along merrily. Can this be my ISP (Verizon)? I've killed ipv6 with a blacklisting alias.conf file in the /lib/modprobe.d/ directory.
Any ideas why these two problems are occurring again?
Thanks for any help.
