systemd-journal-flush.service gobbling boot time [Solved]
« on: September 27, 2018, 10:49:07 am »
Hi, all my Peppermint friends!

I've been enjoying Pepp 9 on my HP 8440p laptop.  The only issue I have is the long boot time. over 25 seconds are gobbled up with  systemd-journal-flush.service.  Is there a way to reduce the time on this? Here is the out put from systemd-analyze blame

Boot time hasn't improved much.  systemd-journal-flush.service has dropped down in the rank.

I'll absolutely guarantee, an SSD would be the best purchase you've ever made (as long as your SATA port is SATA III), and once you use one you'll never touch a 'spinner' again ;)

My HP specs labels the interface as a serial ata-300, which I understand to be a sata II.
Thanks!
