Why should a recompiled kernel help if you have not any indication what
the problem is caused from?
I guess it is the known problem with IPv6 being active. In /etc/modprobe
# Turn off IPv6
alias net-pf-10 off
alias ipv6 off
and then reboot and see if that helps.
Another thing to check is that /etc/hosts is proper and contains a valid
localhost line and an entry for your chosen hostname.
