Hi

Why does OO 2.0.4 start up in seconds with network cable plugged in, and almost a minute when I unplug it? Are there any command line keys to stop OO from searching for network?
Why couldn't they implement a non-blocking IO???

Thanks

This is most likely caused by having a network printer. When OOo starts it searches for the printer. One way to stop it is to change the default printer to a local device but this may rather defeat the purpose.

Assuming you are in Windows, I got a significant startup speed boost off network when I installed PDFCreator and set that as my default printer. Although I didn't use PDFCreator much with OOo since it has its own built-in PDF capabilities, it came in handy with webpages that I wanted to print when I was off the network.

I don't have any printer set up in OO, I don't think I ever opened their Printer Administration tool.
And I don't think this start up behavior was in times of good old 2.0.3...

Will try to find out what exactly OO 2.0.4 tries to find in the net...

Sorry about that. Didn't mean to insult you.

Same problem here.

Workaround: use ifplugd so when you unplug the cable the eth interface is automatically disabled (and reenabled when you re-plug it...).

If you have gentoo, simply type "emerge ifplugd" and forget the problem.
