Unable to start midnight commander under Ubuntu. It's a server, where I was using it for a lont time always. Today I logged in and found
mc hangs on start.
and nothing happens.
Reinstall didn't help.
rm -rf .config/mc
Removing global config
sudo rm /etc/mc
and reinstall causes
dims@sagittarius-a:/etc$ mc sfs_init(): Warning: file /etc/mc/sfs.ini not found
i.e. didn't help and config files didn't restored dusring install by some reason.
What else can be tried?
Wow! It just loads long! No less than 60-100 seconds. It appeared while I was writing this. So the question persists: what does it do so long? Calculating mass of proton? How to wean it from this habit?
Reinstalling MC doesn't help.
Recently I configured my globally the domain name, which I am using as default in my
LAN. Now, the commands like
dims@sagittarius-a:~$ host anything anything.MYDOMAIN is an alias for MYDOMAIN. MYDOMAIN has address GLOBAL_IP_OF_MY_SITE_1 MYDOMAIN has address GLOBAL_IP_OF_MY_SITE_2
I read, that MC does some DNS lookup on startup and it can slow the process. I would like to understand, what is happening to make my own correct configuration, because answers in that question are incomplete.
