Max Very Slow Startup

    May 30 2006 | 1:59 pm
    Have been using the Max demo for a few days now upgraded from older versions,
    and it takes a very long time to boot up. Like over 5 minuets,
    I'm running a G5 duel 2ghz, so speed should be a problem.
    Any ideas?
    should I just reinstall OS X as have been having problems with other software in 10.4.6.

      Boot into your machines startup CD/DVD by inserting it, rebooting and
      holding 'c' key, and run a disk repair. That does not sound normal.

      Maybe you have in you max search path too much things ?

      I vaguely remember reading about problems when a network drive is in
      the Max search, and it can't find it, so it has to wait to time out
      before proceeding, or something like that.
