How to fix Slow boot up

Asked by Chuck

When booting into Ubuntu Intrepid using a dual win xp/Ubuntu start up on a laptop using wireless internet, the Ubuntu boot seems to "hang" at 2 places. The progress bar during start up stops about at the half way point and the second stopping point is just after cupsd, if it helps. This is not a new problem but I don't recall the slow boot when I first started using Ubuntu 2 years ago. Can you offer some guidance on how to track done the information to find out why the slowness? I "googled" the topic and it seems that "Bootchart" will show helpful info. I have bootchart .9 but cannot find info on how to use it. Can you tell me how to use bootchart??

Thanks for your help. Went to your help sight, read the thread, googled the command to open the file, as listed below:

Code:

xdg-open foo.jpg

where "foo.jpg" is your file name.

Then I read the file.

I'll bet you have already guessed I am not sure how to read the chart. My guess the wireless card, but ..
Here is the chart file saved as a gimp

Thanks for your interest and help. I found this link and it seems to have worked. I did have a problem with the wireless connection not automatically starting on boot up. It would start using WiFi Radar. I fixed it after googling around for a while.

Problem solved. Thanks again.
