I'm using an SSDTRIM is on a daily Cronjob.  I've update GRUB twice and rebooted three times.  The Network manager has the ethernet connection removed and the IPv6 is set to Ignore.  I've tried using older working kernels.  Nothing makes a difference.  Any ideas on where to go next   :-\?

Hi AndyinMokum,

90 Secs seems to be the default timeout for Linux when something goes "Pete Tong"

For me it's usually when my Swap file got re-written by another install. Check your fstab settings for swap against blkid - uuid stuff

What does
Code: [Select]
systemd-analyze blame
say

Cheer Zeb, I'd forgotten to reset the UUID on the SWAP after I'd installed antiX to test for someone.  That's a nice little distro for antique or low spec hardware.  It's now all back to normal on the Peppermint partitions  ;).

Not that I'm not sympathetic to your issue, Andy, but it's kinda funny when you think of how long computers used to take to boot up.  90 seconds would have been a dream 20 years ago.  :D  It's amazing how technology has progressed so that 90 seconds is horrible.

No doubt about it mate.  In fact, there are still Windows users who would do back flips of joy for a boot up time of 90 secs  :)).  Let's face it, us Peppermint users and Linux users in general, are just spoilt rotten  :D!!
