There is one little problem. Every now and then when I boot the laptop
it kind of 'freezes' and a few minutes later it works as it should
without any other problems. I can change to a virtual terminal and
login there, but if I try to login graphically it will take me like 2
to 3 minutes to complete the process. I cannot see anything in the log
You might want to check you disk drives using smartctl (in the smartmontools
package). If you have some bad blocks, they could cause probelms.
I thought about that :) ; according to pamlipsest the disk is healthy
and has passed all tests.
On that time interval I would suspect either dns timeouts or lots of disk
activity as what you are waiting on.
the dns setup both at home as at work is solid (I'm a sysadmin, so
yes, I know). I fail to see how dns should have local graphical logins
slow down randomly, to be honest. Could you care to ellaborate?
As to disk i/o, nope, it's nearly non-existent. I can logon a vt and
start top and the system is idle.
Any other ideas?
