Slow boot and shutdown "lvmetad not active yet"
« on: March 09, 2018, 04:24:53 pm »
Hi to you all!
After a few years running Linux Mint 18 (and still a total newbie with command lines...), I decided to install Peppermint 8 instead, and I am really loving it...once it gets started!
Yes, boot is VERY slow (black screen for a long time, then login, then long black screen, then OK), and so is shutdown. Besides, I get an ominous "lvmetad not active yet" message upon shutdown.
As Peppermint is WAY faster on my son's computer (although it doesn't have an SSD hard disk, as mine has...), I figure the slowness is not normal (although Peppermint zooms just fine once it gets going).

Could anybody help me there, or should I reinstall everything??? (I think I clicked on lvm enable upon install).

Chris, from France

Hi Enneade38, and welcome to the forum :)

Did you use LVM or full disk encryption during install ?
(if so, and you have no need for LVM or full disk encryption, and also if you haven't made too many customisations to Peppermint yet, the quickest solution may be to just reinstall without using LVM)

What's the contents of
Code: [Select]
xed /etc/fstab
and the output from:
Code: [Select]
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
Code: [Select]
sudo blkid
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/lvm/lvm.conf
