Peppermint 4 Booting and shutting down slow performance
« on: April 23, 2014, 05:00:47 am »
Hi guys!

Newbie here with a booting and shutting down question. I have an HP Pavillion dv2000 with AMD Turion 64x2 2 GB of RAM laptop and when it boots it shows ^@ and then the Peppermint 4 splash screen. When I installed Peppermint 4 (fresh install) for the first time, it never showed the ^@ and the time to boot was as fast and impressive as Lubuntu 13.10. Shutting down was an incredible 3 to 5 seconds fast and now its 15 to 20 seconds; powers off without any errors or messages.

Tweaking apart: I've tweaked grub time to reduce to 2 and "swappiness" to 10. The OS is up-to-date and has the latest linux gnu. What could possibly have changed the performance? I switched from Lubuntu 13.10 to Peppermint 4 because it is more of a "cloud-os" and it doesn't come installed with so many packages that hog-up the memory.

Linux Version Distro
PRETTY_NAME="Peppermint Four"

My Kernel version
Linux robertsala-HP-Pavilion-dv2000-RV325UA-ABA 3.8.0-35-generic #50-Ubuntu SMP Tue Dec 3 01:25:33 UTC 2013 i686 athlon i686 GNU/Linux

Any help is appreciated! Thank you....
