Slow boot after update

Post by j8a » Tue Feb 27, 2018 6:24 pm

Hi, I have no Nvidia drivers and I also have noticed a slow boot time after Kernel update in Sylvia 18.3

Code: Select all

inxi -Fx
System: Host: pcjochoa Kernel: 4.10.0-38-generic x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 5.4.0)
Desktop: Xfce 4.12.3 (Gtk 2.24.28) Distro: Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia
Machine: System: Dell product: Inspiron 1501
Mobo: Dell model: 0UW744?????? Bios: Dell v: 2.6.1 date: 08/23/2006
CPU: Single core AMD Turion 64 Mobile MK-36 (-UP-) cache: 512 KB
flags: (lm nx sse sse2 sse3 svm) bmips: 3191 speed/max: 1600/2000 MHz
Graphics: Card: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] RS482M [Mobility Radeon Xpress 200]
The problem is in the following output, I could not understand what can I do.

Code: Select all

systemd-analyze
Startup finished in 10.386s (kernel) + 3min 844ms (userspace) = 3min 11.231s

Code: Select all

systemd-analyze critical-chain

I also have checked some post but I think it is not related with the others under the section Installation and boot.
Should I run systemctl disable NetworkManager-wait-online.service or maybe another cause for this problem?

I will appreciate any comments. Thanks.

@ j8a, .......

The problem should be the AMD graphics driver, ie do not use the proprietary driver.

As Michael said - check the driver in use.
If that still doesn't do the trick, compare the output from sudo blkid & cat /etc/fstab, make sure there's no mismatch between them.

By the way, you should be on either the latest 4.13.x or the latest 4.4.x, not 4.10.x. Being a rather older machine, i'd probably go with 4.4.x...
