    slow booting after install

    ok, this will be forrum#3 that im posting on andi have gotten nowhere.][ubuntu] trouble installing ubuntu - Ubuntu Forums
    and]slow booting after installing ubuntu - MajorGeeks Support Forums

    ill give you the rundown... im trying to install ubuntu studio 11.04on my new dell. it finishes and boot,just incredibly slow. maybe 10 min to load after login. im able to update, i thought maybe it would fix it with driver updates. still nothing. the only thing i did so far was "pci=noacpi". and that did nothing. here is my system.

    dell inspiron m5010 (64bit sys)
    amd phenom(tm)IIn850 tripple-core 2.20ghz
    ati mobility radeon hd 4250

    any ideas? is there a soul out there willing to help me, ubuntu forums was less than helpful so was major geeks.

    You have any message from the boot process, or you can just see the graphic startup?

    My first guess would be to say that it's a Video driver problem. Did you install a driver for the Video or was it auto-detected? Is the correct Video driver/module being loaded at boot time? You need to boot the system up and then open a terminal/konsole window, post the output of these commands please. It's going to spit out a ton of stuff, so have a way to transfer the output here, such as a USB/Flash drive.
    sudo lspci -knn
    sudo dmesg
    sudo cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    sudo cat /var/log/messages
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
