Postby vinnywright on Sun Mar 20, 2011 3:21 pm

Hello all.......
new linux mint user hear......(but not to linux)
I nead to know how to keep update-apt-xapi from runing at boot?
this is a very week laptop 700Mhz-CPU 128-RAM but even so linux mint fluxbox is running pritty good on it :)
and any other ideas to liten the load on it!!

update-apt-xapi takes about 15-20 minuts to run off and during that time the system is about unusable and I can run updates on the CLI myself :)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I guess you could do;
Code: Select all
sudo aptitude hold package_name

Dektop: AMD Quad-Core, 4GB RAM, ATI HD3650silent, 33TB harddrive

I had this problem yesterday on Mint 10 LXDE.
The dektop being used is irrelevant.

I did a lot of digging on it.

This seems to be an old bug that never gets fixes correctly.

Check out this thread:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/363695

I used the fix in message #83.
All good now...Hopefully it stays good... at least until the next update!
