Fedora 10 SLOW BOOT process

Repo, you were recommending to "Sweet Chris" that he edits the kernel to add ACPI=OFF to it.

How is that done? I know gedit [filename] will allow you to open a file to edit it, but what exact file were you referring to? Pardon my ignorance.

What are the general causes of this type of problem?

Thanks in advance for any help you could provide?

Well, strictly speaking its /usr/src/<kernel>/.config; making sure that is the config file your kernel uses, then recompiling it.


boot, fedora
