Shutdown taking a lot of time
I'm not sure if I'm the only one experiencing this, but I haven't been able to google anything. No matter what hardware I'm installing Oneiric on, right from pentium to core2duo but mostly laptops, the time it takes to shutdown has raised remarkable (maybe from 10 sec to 60 sec) from Natty to Oneiric (including Precise Alpha1). I'm taking about new clean installations from CD ISO's, an installation which hasn't been fiddled with at all.
Hitting "Esc" on it way down to get rid of the splash, I'm noticing that it hangs for a long time before writing something about "Starting modem-manager [OK]" but then after a couple of secs more power off fine (and yes it says starting).
I have tried to "purge" the modem-manager, but that doesn't change much, so I'm afraid this isn't the guilty bugger then.
Anyone having same experience, or know what is causing this great change ?
Why does shutdown time matter then ? - because I not interested in destroying any harddisks by moving a box that is still reading/writing it.
- "Pisu" mentions bug #875959 in another "shutdown" thread, maybe this could be the source - just remember in my case we're talking a virgin install of Ku or U-bunt here...
- Studying the above bug (and it duplicate), I've managed to cut 5-10 secs of by stopping network-manager before shutdown from GUI, so this at least could be part of the problem.
