Re: Linux Mint 20 takes a lot of time to load

You can also upload file /var/log/Xorg.0.log this log is from the nvidia driver only. If you tested Nouveau driver, it will have output in journalctl. I suggest you report it, ask the developers, and try to fix any bug. Each bug fix should improve system performance / loading speed. Below is the ad...

Re: Linux Mint 20 takes a lot of time to load

I would try that one: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=! acpi_osi='Windows 2009' " and I would try that: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=noirq" The first one would be an attempt to just correct the whole system overall in relation to how the kernel...

Re: Linux Mint 20 takes a lot of time to load

For the power handling issue, ACPI messages, you will have to test a variety of parameters. I don't know some clear exact answer here, but instead of using nomodeset, for graphics related, which doesn't help this case, there are other possible combination(s) that can help, with other kernel modules...

Re: Linux Mint 20 takes a lot of time to load

If you reboot then run the following command, it will show where your boot process is having problems: journalctl -b | grep -i "error\|warn\|fail" | tee >(gzip --stdout > journalctl_$USER.gz) This command will write the current system log problems to the file journalctl_(yourname).gz. The...

Re: Linux Mint 20 takes a lot of time to load

I had forgot to mention earlier, but this slow to start problem had also happened when I used manjaro a while ago. Seems like some issue with the Nvidia graphics driver itself, because boot time is faster when the open-source driver is used in both manjaro and linux mint.

Re: Linux Mint 20 takes a lot of time to load

You have a very old processor, so the first suggestion I would make is to make sure your computer's fan and heat sink are clean. The cooler your system runs, the better the performance. The target temperatures for a system is less than 50C. Yours is 69C, and 87C for the Nvidia card. I agree with th...
