Issues with exceedingly long boot and partition mounting

Post by telegott » Tue Aug 27, 2019 5:34 pm

Hello!

I recently installed Mint 19.2 alongside Windows 10 on a SSD. I have several NTFS partitions that I haven't yet included in the fstab.
After selecting Mint in GRUB, the Mint logo shows for about a minute before the screen turns black for another good few seconds, until finally the login screen appears.

On another installation before that I had the NTFS partitions automatically mounted. However, the external drives would randomly pop up in the explorer as if they just would've been connected. Rhythmbox suffered from severe amnesia and would forget the whole imported library.

What could be the cause for this and how can I see what Mint is trying to do in that time? I really don't know where to start with this, but it renders the system kind of unusable. This is the first Mint installation after I changed to Ryzen 2600 and an AM4 mainboard, before I was running Mint 18.3 on a AM3+ processor and everything worked like a charm.

Thanks alot in advance!

Please post an inxi -Fxz report. This will give us a concise overview of your hardware and on how Mint sees it.

Here is how to generate the report and post it:

Boot from your installation media (USB/DVD)
Open a terminal window (Ctrl-Alt-t). Make it fullscreen to avoid unneeded linebreaks or chopped lines. Execute the command

Code: Select all

 inxi -Fxzd 
exactly as it has been typed here.

Mark the complete text output which the command will display with your mouse.
Press the keyboard shortcut <Shift><Ctrl>C to copy the marked text into the clipboard.
Enclose the results between the code markers by selecting </> from the mini toolbar above the textbox where you type your reply then paste <Ctrl>V them in your reply between the code markers.

The results will help us to help you.

Posting the results of these 2 commands in the terminal will help a lot in identifying why.

Code: Select all

systemd-analyze 
- shows how long the last boot took

Code: Select all

systemd-analyze blame 
- shows the items by boot time in descending time taken.

You probably should start your own thread as it is highly unlikely that the causes will be identical & that will just cause confusion.

I don't see anything wrong with it, but I'm not up on all the newer systemd stuff either.
All things go better with Mint. Mint julep, mint jelly, mint gum, candy mints, pillow mints, peppermint, chocolate mints, spearmint,....
