View Full Version : knoppix 3.9 on hdd - strange program start delays

08-27-2005, 10:38 PM
hello @all,
i have installed knoppix 3.9 on my hdd and everything works fine - only for some KDE programs it takes _ages_ (=3 min 10 s +- 5 s) to load! For example, Kwrite and Kate show the said delay which is quite reproduceable, while nedit has none at all! i guess there's some timer running out, but don't know why or what or how to get rid of it.
does anybody have an idea what's going on and how to remedy this?

We have cautioned new users from installing Knoppix to the HD without first being aware that it might not work for them http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Hd_Install_HowTo. You have run into a known issue with Knoppix 3.9 HD Installs in that it breaks networking.

The bug is documented as #15 http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Bugs/3.9-2005-05-27 and can be resolved by entering the command as root user:
ln -s /etc/init.d/ifupdown-clean /etc/rcS.d/S18ifupdown-clean
Then reboot the PC.

Let us know if this is successful.
