I upgraded to edgy and now, my kernel (both generic and i386) boot
strangely. I get a black screen with blinking cursor for about 10
minutes then it loads in 10 seconds :s
I saw no particular message in the message log.

I had this problem after a dapper -> edgy upgrade (not a hw problem i
think because i could still boot quickly the old dapper kernel)
Because i didn't know i had to wait 10 minutes (thought about frozen
kernel) i removed this and did a fresh install of edgy. There i
discovered that it finally booted after a loooooong pause. I did not
have this problem with live cd, only the installation is such slow at

I do not want to keep a system that take 10 minutes to boot, does
someone have suggestion where i should look at? Is this a know problem
in edgy, any work arounds?

Help greatly appreciated.

Btw, am i the only one noticing a big regression in user friendlyness
of edgy compared to dapper. A big part of the system seems now to have
switched from french to english, though am configured a french. (eg,
adept application isn't translated anymore??)
