when i do single user mode, one of the items that appreas is this phrase:
launchd:server284f in bootstrap 1103 uid0 "/usr/sbin/lookupd" exited abnormally : hangup
Is this normal for the OS to hangup?
i looked around apple support for more info, but did not find anything.
Also upgrading your memory will help out..256 is not really enough for the OS itself.
If you can take it to 512M-1Gig you will be better off.
the macmini was not designed to be your work horse.. it is like the performa series apple came out w/ back in the 90's.. check email surf the web...
I have to second that... 10.3 is slower@ the booting time.. also try resetting your vram and look into your startup item, located in your accounts pref.delete all and see waht that does for your startup time..
