Really slow boot time (SOLVED)
« on: November 07, 2019, 01:53:38 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.

I put it through Google Translate.  :D Whether or not this is correct?
Hello. Brand new and on mint 10. And the system is also loaded for a long time. And I did not see the solution with Panteluke, switched from Windows and have not figured it out yet - what and how. Please explain by rolls what and how to change so that the system loads faster. After loading, everything works better than on Windows. It remains to decide with the download and there will be a class.
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)
