Really slow boot time
« on: November 07, 2019, 04:53:38 pm »
Hi all,

I'm new here! I have an old laptop from 2007, Intel Core 2 Duo with 2GB RAM. I had  bearable performance with other distros, but when I found out about peppermint, I thought I might try it. I made some tests and the results were really promising. So I decided to give it a go.
Now, everything seems terrific apart from the boot up time. It takes 3min to show the login! After login, I need more than a minute to be able to do anything on the desktop. For comparison, my previous distro(elementary os) took about 1 min from start to finish.
So, do you think I can pinpoint the problem and fix it?
From systemd-analyse blame these are the first lines:
    1min 28.530s gpu-manager.service
    1min 22.948s plymouth-quit-wait.service
         13.167s dev-sda6.device
          9.781s systemd-journal-flush.service
          8.647s keyboard-setup.service
          7.733s NetworkManager-wait-online.service
          7.647s systemd-sysctl.service
          7.397s systemd-udevd.service
          5.371s mintsystem.service
          5.190s NetworkManager.service
.....

Thank you very much

OK, I think I found it.
Changed value of GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT to "video=SVIDEO-1:d quiet splash" and now I have something like 35s to login screen and 15 more seconds from there to reach desktop.

Здравствуйте. Новенький и на мяте 10. И тоже долго грузится система. А решение не увидел у Panteluke, перешёл с винды и ещё не разобрался - что и как. Пожалуйста, объясните по бубочкам - что и как изменить, чтоб система быстрее грузилась. После загрузки всё работает лучше, чем в Windows. Осталось с загрузкой решить и будет класс.
