apparently so - I'm at a loss too because I'm not sure which problem you
are actually trying to solve.

Generally, if boot up hangs on sendmail service starting, it's because
someone didn't pay attention to editing /etc/hosts file because the
first 2 lines make it pretty clear...

# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.       localhost.localdomain   localhost
::1             localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6

when the first 4 lines of /etc/hosts look different than this, you
generally get the startup hangs from sendmail.

As for the 15 minutes and can't even ping...sounds like oom killer is
dealing with some thing that is eating up memory like crazy. Does this
happen if you turn off the Adobe Flash Media Server?  I would think not.
I don't have any knowledge of the Adobe Flash Media Server and you may
not find many on this list that do. If you can narrow the problem down
to Adobe Flash Media Server, do they have a support list?
