I really don't think it should be taking this long, expecially since it takes around 10 seconds to start in windows.

This is a fresh install of SRCDS - NO ADDONS. Litrally just downloaded the update tool and ran it. Then started the server.
where does it sit the longest?
Solution found by Twelve-60 in #sourcemod on gamesurge.
[Twelve-60] dont make it autoupdate? :o

Removed the -autoupdate command, it now takes about 4 seconds. Yay Big Grin
Yeah auto update will make it wait maybe a minute or two never had it 7 minutes for me yet even with updates.
Glad you found it was the auto update. Smile
