Description rimbotede 2013-05-25 03:42:30 EDT
Description of problem:
It takes a long time to boot to LXDE desktop.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Happens every time I boot the system.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot.
2. Watch the boot process.

Actual results:
Black screen (with clearly seen backlight though) for ~30 seconds before the login screen.

Expected results:
Fast (below 10 seconds) boot into the login screen.

Additional info:
In the dmesg I see fglrx mentioned which I know makes the bug report invalid but I was unable to say whether the issue is caused by the fglrx or the stuff that happens before fglrx.

Additional info - continued:
It seems that the behavior is different when rebooting instead starting a cold machine. In case a reboot I can press escape when I see the black screen to expedite the boot process. The login screen shows up immediatelly.

Hence I attach two separate dmesg returns for the two cases.

Yeah.  fglrx takes 30 seconds to load.
