Slow Loading (SOLVED)
« on: November 05, 2014, 09:52:42 am »
Hello,
I've installed Peppermint 5 on my Dell Mini and when I start it up there's a message on a black screen right before the login page, "scanning for btrfs files". (Actually it shows it two times on two black screens). Everything is loading super slow, including the internet, even though my wifi connection says 100%. Do these things have anything to do with each other? I don't know what btrfs is, but should I just start over and make a new usb stick? I ask that because I'm not that good at this sudo thingy.  :-\
Eve

Hi evie7, Peppermint scans for the btrfs file system by default.  It is a file system for multiple devices across a network.  For your set-up, you don't need it.  Here's how to disable it.  Open a terminal window with the following key strokes: Ctrl+Alt+t.  Enter the following command and hit enter.
Code: [Select]
apt remove --purge btrfs-tools -y
Do the password thing if asked and reboot your machine.  That should take care of that - have fun  ;).

Hi,
Thanks, did that, but it still seems a bit slow. Is there another reason?

I ask that because I'm not that good at this sudo thingy.  :-\

Nobody is when they are new to Linux.  That being said, if you copied and pasted:  sudo apt-get upgrade  into your terminal it would be interesting to see if the solution was that simple.

Be brave, go to your Menu, up to Accessories, and down to the Terminal.

1) First update by typing, or coping and pasting, into the Terminal this command:  sudo apt-get update

Then type in your password when instructed to do so.  Remember, you will not see your password that you are typing.

Now hit the Enter key once, and you'll update your computer.

2) Now type, or copy and paste, sudo apt-get upgrade  and hit Enter again.  If it offers you an upgrade, do it -- enter Y, or y, and hit your Enter key.

3) Now type, or copy and paste, sudo apt-get dist-upgrade  and hit Enter.  It you are offered an upgrade, take it again.

Now  x out, or type exit, and hit the Enter key again.

That's it.  You're done! 

Better to spend a maximum of 5 minutes updating and upgrading, than an hour re-installing the darn program.  Who knows if any upgrade might help you here or not?  But, at this point, what do you have to lose?

You can do this, I'm sure.  ;)

Good luck,

perknh

Hi evie7 that's an excellent call from perknh.  This simple maintenance procedure can cure a myriad of ills in one go.  It is also a good idea to reboot your machine after a sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.  Just in case there is a kernel update.  Good luck  ;).

If it's still slow after that, can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
inxi -F
remember, Linux commands ARE case sensitive .. so that's a capital F :)

Hi You Guys,
2 months later...I guess I'm the one who's slow loading.  ::) Ok so my computer was apparently "good enough" after I last wrote to you, but it got steadily worse until today when I checked in and saw the update and upgrade suggestions. So I just did all that and it did not ask me to update or upgrade, but it did say that there were packages auto installed that were no longer required, linux headers blah, blah blah and to use apt-get autoremove. Should I  do that?
Thanks!

Hi evie7, Happy New Year!!  Yes it is good to do this.  Its just routine maintenance.  You can safely run these commands as part of a maintenance routine:
Code: [Select]
apt clean && apt autoclean
and
Code: [Select]
apt autoremove
For example I run them after a kernel update.  They keep things nice and tidy  ;).  Just out of curiosity as you may have built up a lot of redundant kernels.  What is the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep linux-image-3

Glad you know what this all means because I sure don't and I don't know what a kernel is either. Can I eat it?  :D

Ok so I did that and rebooted. Websites and programs are still loading super slow ... It took two minutes for an email to open after I clicked on it...

Just curious, when I was looking at the Software Updater, I noticed that it searched for additional drivers and said that it has a Broadcom blah blah blah, but it says "this device is not working" and the button is checked for "do not use this device". Is that how it's supposed to be? 

Thanks! Eve

Have you tried hooking the machine up direct to your router with a lan cable? If not I would try that first and see if your emails open faster and websites load faster...  If you find the lan cable is working great, and it slows down again when you connect via wifi then you have established that it is the wifi card that is the problem and not something else...  I would try hard wiring the machine to the router first and let us know what happens...  :)

Hi evie7.  I see that the output you returned is very long.  In future, could you please encapsulate long outputs with the Sp Spoiler function.  This is located just above the crying  :'( emoticon.  It makes it much easier for people to read and keeps things neat and tidy.  This time I’ve done this for you.  Thanks in advance ;)

I suggest you wait for PCNetSpec to work his magic on your Broadcom Drivers.  In the meantime you can clean up your kernels further.  The Linux kernel is the heart of your system.  Everything else is built on top of it.  You only need one.  For practical purposes, it is good to keep the penultimate one as spare.  Just in case the current one presents issues.  You have five of them  :o.  Lets do some house keeping  :).  Run the following very long command to clean up three of them.

Tip:  Linux is case sensitive.  To reduce the possibility of typographical errors, please use the Code: [Select] function below to highlight the contents. Click on the centre mouse button/wheel while in the terminal window to paste the contents.

Code: [Select]
apt remove --purge linux-image-3.13.0-29-generic linux-headers-3.13.0-29 linux-headers-3.13.0-29-generic linux-image-3.13.0-39-generic linux-headers-3.13.0-39 linux-headers-3.13.0-39-generic linux-image-3.13.0-40-generic linux-headers-3.13.0-40 linux-headers-3.13.0-40-generic 
If nothing else, it will give you back some space  ;).

It's still slow, though after a reboot. Should I wait to see what PCNetSpec says about the broadcom drivers before trying the other suggestion above (that I should try a wired connection Thanks, Robert!)?
I really appreciate you guys going to all this trouble!  :)

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep firmware
and
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep b43
and
Code: [Select]
df -h

[EDIT]

As you seem to have an SSD, can you also post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo hdparm -I /dev/sda | grep TRIM
