Start up time longer, seeing message (SOLVED)
« on: September 19, 2019, 01:01:08 pm »
Hi all,
I'm experiencing slower startup time together with a message, as follows...
/dev/sda8: clean, 387073/3227648 files, 2334108/12907008 blocks

A of warning or failure of some kind perhaps?
Many thanks.. Mark

Can you run:
Code: [Select]
dmesg > ~/Desktop/dmesg.txt
you'll then find a file called dmesg.txt on your desktop .. can you host that file online somewhere like
http://tinyupload.com/
and post a link to it back here

Okay, can you explain what you mean by "Start up time longer" ?

dmesg suggests that your machine finishes most boot tasks by about the 30 second mark .. but then there's a long gap before the wireless adapter connects to your router.

With your review of dmesg in mind I rebooted the router. Following that I rebooted my PC three times, each time it is acquiring a connection much quicker. The nasty look i gave the router may have been an influence too...

Thank you!
