[SOLVED] Reduce resume time

Been a while since I've been here!

Mint 19.1 is taking a LONG time to boot.

When I ALT-F1 it says "Gave up looking for Resume/Suspend...."

I do use Suspend sometimes.

How can I shorten the time it takes to look for a Suspend image?

When I boot frsh with no Suspend it takes forever.

Thanks guys and gals.

Hope you are all OK under current conditions!

Could it be that it is looking for a swap file/partition that is no longer there?

Yes, or a partition that got reformatted and assigned a different UUID when installing another linux distribution alongside Mint.

Thanks for the further explanation! It's good to know for future similar cases.

You guys nailed it...

Not swap. /tmp

My signature...next installation I up the size of the root partition. I started out with a very comfortable 10G free space with Mint 17, and 19.1 has reduced it. Even removing old kernels leaves me with 3G.

I moved /tmp from the root partition to my home petition.
