    SubjectRe: 2.4.0-test9-pre8
    Do you have nscd installed and running or have incorrect nsswitch/resolv.conf

    I have several systems here on test9p8 and they all start up very fast. Full
    boot is usually less than 45 seconds, 60 for the X on my laptop. What is
    that UDP socket for? port 53 I'm guessing? Double check your dns setup, it
    may be coincidental.
