Very long boot

Post by mururoa » Sun Jul 31, 2016 8:09 am


Mint was just installed yesterday but I get a very annoying problem : VERY long boot.
It takes about 10 minutes to boot and then it's in rescue mode; no cinnamon desktop.
Looking in logs I see that in kern.log :

[ 12.538240] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): enp3s0: link becomes ready
[ 611.567778] dconf worker invoked oom-killer: gfp_mask=0x24280ca, order=0, oom_score_adj=0
[ 611.567781] dconf worker cpuset=/ mems_allowed=0

Indeed here we get the 10 minutes and in the end we get an OOM killer because of no more ram ... on a 8 GB computer :(
And the killed process change each boot. I saw cinnamon, xort, dconf on 3 boot.
It looks like something broke in the ultimate last update after installation.
Freebsd, Ubuntu and Windows were running ok on this computer so I guess it's not an hardware issue.
How can I fix that ?
Something to reconfigure ?

Before going in 'complex' things, the simplest is to try to reinstall. It may have had a problem with the installation. And as you seem to come to install, you must not have yet really used the OS, so there is nothing to back up before. :)

You have well checked the install media before the install?

It's better but it still hapen from time to time. I woud say 1 out of 5; wich is much metter thant 9/10 but still, not ok.
All updates are made.
Last one :

[ 10.107604] Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized
[ 10.107610] Bluetooth: RFCOMM socket layer initialized
[ 10.107615] Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.11
[ 12.332766] r8169 0000:03:00.0 enp3s0: link up
[ 12.332775] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): enp3s0: link becomes ready
[ 309.347584] cinnamon-settin invoked oom-killer: gfp_mask=0x24201ca, order=0, oom_score_adj=0
[ 309.347587] cinnamon-settin cpuset=/ mems_allowed=0
[ 309.347593] CPU: 2 PID: 1396 Comm: cinnamon-settin Not tainted 4.4.0-31-generic #50-Ubuntu

We see clearly that all is ok up to ipv6 (by the way I will desactive this) and then wait near 300 sec and oom-killer.
