Mint 18.2 upgrade went super well

Post by MurphCID »

I am down to the little linux laptop right now. My old system died, my new Ryzen is in BSOD hades, my mac laptop is boring, and this one is fun. Anyway, the upgrade from 18.1 to 18.2 went super smoothly, the installation of lightDM was easy. Mint just keeps impressing me.

Aren't you experiencing much longer login time? Short of 2 minutes since upgrading to 18.2. Previous versions 30 seconds... Thanks for any tips.

I haven't noticed anything so far, but I will start paying more attention to it. I did not do anything special, just ran the installer to upgrade to 18.2, and then removed MDM for the new display manager.

I didn't notice any difference from 18.1 - so I would say the boot times were the same as far as I can tell.

I only have access to the XPS system so here is

Code: Select all

[bill@XPS] ~ $ systemd-analyze time
Startup finished in 21.353s (firmware) + 11.895s (loader) + 4.441s (kernel) + 20.953s (userspace) = 58.643s

Thanks. Under a minute is not too bad, my PC takes almost 2 minutes whereas with Rosa and Maya it took only 30-40 seconds.

That looks decent, what does systemd-analyze critical-chain and systemd-analyze time show?

I'm liking 18.2 a lot. Upgrade was painless here too. I for one prefer LightDM over MDM and I'm loving that I no longer get screen tearing on my Intel/Nvidia setup. My Mac was the best laptop I've ever seen - not the best OS obviously, but the best hardware overall.
