Hmmm.. I just installed F11 today on my laptop.|
I did a custom install (i.e. I selected every package from
the customization menus). Yeah... a big and time consuming installation.
I am not having the problems you are reporting at all. In fact,
I get to the login prompt in exactly 35 seconds from boot start
(i.e. from the time when I select which OS to boot from the grub menu).
My cpu is an old uniproc amd64, though my kernel is i386.
My ram is 2GB.
I am not booting the default kernel, which has the PAE (Physical Address Extension).
I am booting the non-PAE kernel.
I wonder if that has an impact on performance. Have you tried to install
and boot from the non-PAE kernel?
