my OS (Ubuntu 12.04) started to load slowly. After I choose OS from GRUB, it takes like 50 seconds of loading to get to login screen. I google'd, that command dmesg can provide some useful output. Most important lines od dmsg output are:

[    3.256550] EXT3-fs (loop0): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode
[   54.410083] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready

Some people who got same error solved this by reconnecting devices connected to notebook, but I get this output even with nothing connected to my nb.

Any advice, what should I do, or why does it behave this way?

Thanks in advance

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Can you post: /etc/network/interfaces? – Karlson Sep 21 '12 at 18:23
Is there anything else between the 'mounted filesystem' line and the ADDRCONF lines? AFAIK, that ADDRCONF line is nothing to worry about. And I have it on plenty of my machines, and its not a problem. – derobert Sep 21 '12 at 18:33
