just installed Mint 7 on my IBM Thinkpad. Except for one thing everything works well:
When I boot the machine, it hangs for about 170 seconds when it registers the internal Trackpoint. After that, the boot continues very fast.
Seems like there is a problem with my trackpoint. I already tried to remove my USB mouse in case this confuses the kernel somehow, but this had no effect.
Anyway, the interesting part if the boot messages is shown here:

I also generated a bootchart, but I have to admit that I'n not able to correlate that with my dmesg output; but maybe this helps somehow.
For me that is very annoying, because if one would subtract that 'delay', the system would boot very fast.
Anyone else with that problem? What could I do?
