Coldplug taking too much time, earlier it was not so

I have SUSE 9.1. It was very fine and fast when I installed it, but as I upgraded it, installed new softwares, got kde 3.3, it has become slow WHILE BOOTING!

If I guess correctly, installing a new package should not be a problem if its not running as a process. I have figured out that it is "coldplug" which is taking too much time.... atleast 10 seconds or more!

What could be the problem? Please help me....

coldplug, by its very nature, can be slow, as it must probe many devices. taking a few seconds is normal.
