Boot time is longer in 18.3[solved]

Post by mottechy » Mon Mar 05, 2018 4:47 am

After installing 18.3 it is taking too much time to boot. Earlier it was so quick...
Any solution for it?

My Configs:
Swap 17 GB (8 GB RAM)
Boot 2 GB
Root 40 GB
Home 250 GB

Dual System (Win7)

Normally, when LM 18.3 has been installed alongside Win 7, there is no 2GB Boot partition in the LM 18.3 system. If the manual "Something else" install method is used, the "Device for boot loader installation" should be the internal hard-drive or /sda.

"longer" in comparison to what?
What is quick, what is long? Values?

Besides that: Your swap is far too large. (But that has nothing to do with the boot time.)

In 17.3 I found that longer boot time was due to 2 minute long attempt to establish networking during boot. I changed that to 10 seconds and just initiate networking AFTER it's booted.
All things go better with Mint. Mint julep, mint jelly, mint gum, candy mints, pillow mints, peppermint, chocolate mints, spearmint,....

Yes, boot speed can usually be improved. How that's done depends on why it's slow.

These command should show why it's slow:

Code: Select all

systemd-analyze
systemd-analyze blame
systemd-analyze critical-chain
dmesg
Look for time gaps in the last command.

Thanks for your helps and comments.
I have fixed it.
The Issue was the Swap ID.
The Swap ID, which I got through "sudo gedit /etc/fstab" was different than in "blkid". :roll:
I have replaced it with the right ID and the boot time till "Login" screen is only 1min 04 Secs!
Really quick, as earlier... :D
I share it here, so that it may be help for others too... :idea:

Thanks for your helps once again.
