New kernel - 3.5 second boot.

Is there no end to the speed tweaks that are possible with Peppermint 7?  8)

The bad part is, I only see the beautiful Plymouth splash screen (and nVidia branded logo) for microseconds.

If you blink, you miss them both ...   ::)

Even with my interminable boot speed I never see the splash screen nor the ASRock branded screen... still  :-\

I'm doing weekend maintenance on my ancient iron. Maybe I'll check the boot speed on it. [emoji16]

It's amazing how one little thing can drag down the performance of a machine, yes?

Oh, well, that's why one needs to be vigilant and do regular maintenance ...  ::)

In P8 i was getting 32-34 sec but slowly increasing to 42-50 sec now  :(
also sometimes i get a 1m50-ish sec for whatever reason...
It doesn't really annoy me that much but i want to understand what's going on, how did i alter the boot time (directly or indirectly...  :-\

Hi spence,

PCNetSpec is right: there is no driver listed for Graphics: Display Server: ...

Open:  Peppermint Settings Panel -> Hardware -> Additional Drivers and see if anything is available. HTH.

the only thing that appears there is:
Code: [Select]
Using Processor microcode firmware for Intel CPUs from intel microcode (open source) And yet it tells me:
Code: [Select]
This device is using an alternate driver

@spence

Back is still killing me so can't spend too much time ATM searching, but if you still have the 4.10 kernel installed can you boot to that and post the output from:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz


As for the splash screen not displaying, have you removed btrfs-tools yet (if you're not using btrfs)
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge btrfs-toolsI wasn't getting the splash screen until I did that.
