Subject: [gentoo-user] Slow Login, Sudo, etc.
Date: Tue, 12 Oct 2010 06:39:07
1 Hello,
3 I did a large update a week or two ago (400 packages); system is ~x86.
4 It took awhile and needed some cleaning, but in general everything
5 went smoothly.
7 However, I noticed that logins, su, and sudo are all responding
8 slowly. This was all fixed and fine once I updated my configuration
9 files, but this week it's acting up again. Before it was just su and
10 sudo that I noticed as slow (authentication takes around 20 seconds).
11 But now even logins are delayed (xdm or command line).
13 As an example that I timed: su, it takes 20 seconds for the password
14 prompt to appear, and over 60 seconds for the login to authenticate
15 (assuming the correct is a little faster to fail).
17 What package(s) are most likely to be responsible for logins and
18 su/sudo? I tried rebuilding (and also downgrading) pam, and I'm
19 trying some other things now, but no luck so far.
21 I'm happy to provide any information, but this kind of problem is
22 nothing I have experience with, so I have no sense of what else to
23 mention.
25 Cheers,
26 daid
