“Processing triggers for man-db” taking an age in startup

Less of a question, more a comment as in, it looks like the startup has failed because refreshing logs yields no new results for a full 5mins.


apt-get remove -y --purge man-db  

in the startup script? As it’s not really needed, and can be confusing. I restarted the machine twice before I realised it wasn’t hung, was just taking an inordinate amount of time.


Thanks for posting this – i thought mine had hung too on this step.
