    KDE 3.2.2 Slow Booting Problem


    I've been searching around for some help on this. I have checked things and I'm just not sure how to fix this problem.

    KDE was fine, but now I notice it hangs on "initializing system services" and it takes about 30 seconds until it moves on.

    I've searched around and most responses to this problem is wrong or inconsistent network settings. I've checked /etc/hosts and there doesn't appear to be much out of place. I'm running a P4 3.06ghz machine so it should boot faster.

    Any ideas?

    /etc/hosts:

    #
    # hosts This file describes a number of hostname-to-address
    # mappings for the TCP/IP subsystem. It is mostly
    # used at boot time, when no name servers are running.
    # On small systems, this file can be used instead of a
    # "named" name server.
    # Syntax:
    #
    # IP-Address Full-Qualified-Hostname Short-Hostname
    #

    127.0.0.1 localhost

    # special IPv6 addresses
    ::1 localhost ipv6-localhost ipv6-loopback

    fe00::0 ipv6-localnet

    ff00::0 ipv6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ipv6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ipv6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ipv6-allhosts

    what settings did you change, if any, before you experienced problems? maybe you should try disabling some services you don't need.

    Ive had similar problems. Im not much of a network guru so my solution is probably not the best one, but i added my other networkinterfaces to the hostsfile as well.
    127.0.0.1 localhost
