V 12.1.1, starting a kernel, e.g. by entering
wolframscript in the shell, takes an unexpectedly long time (~5 min, the time elapsed between pressing Enter and the showing-up of
In := ); but the same operation for V 12.0 takes merely ~3 sec.
I wonder if I am the only one experiencing this.
Also, inspired by @Ordinaryusers68 's answer, I find these two posts:
- Is there a way to turn off paclet updating altogether? [duplicate]
- Paclets updating awareness and tracking
where, an option
-nopaclet is mentioned when starting the kernel.
