Subject: Kernel 2.6.20 takes a long time to load
Date: Sun, 25 Mar 2007 14:22:08 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hello List,

The kernel 2.6.20 makes a long delay during booting ( about 15 seconds ) after showing:

NET: Registered protocol family 2

then it goes along with:

IP route cache hash table entries: 2048 (order: 1, 8192 bytes)
TCP established hash table entries: 8192 (order: 4, 98304 bytes)

I am using the kernel parameter lpj to avoid calculating processor speed during kernel load.
If I do not use the lpj parameter, the detection of cpu speed takes about 10 seconds, but then 
there is no delay after:
NET: Registered protocol family 2

Any hints what I can try to get a fast booting kernel ?
I am using 2.6.20 with some gentoo patches ( plain 2.6.20-4 has the same problem ).

My .config is here:

Helmut Auer,
