Looks like there's a 30 second process of just insmod, unless it's grouping
them. If you could track down what driver is being silly, that could
help a lot.
I finally found the problem. It's caused by the battery acpi module. I
searched for insmod in rc.sysinit and there is only one part that uses
insmod instead of modprobe. When I change this into modprobe my system
boots normal and haldeamon starts. But the battery-applet doesn't work.
I tried to do /sbin/insmod battery.ko and it takes a long time to finish.
Hal crashes when I boot with a new kernel. I now move the battery.ko module out the acpi
directory, this way I can boot in a normal way but the battery applet doesn't work of
What should I do now?
