Title: Dell Latitude D630 slow boot
Post by: anadmitc on December 16, 2019, 03:03:30 pm
My Dell D630 takes about 4 minutes to boot to the desktop. I have read a few related topics on this forum, but I still haven't resolved my issue. I created a file with the dmesg command and uploaded it to tinyupload.com

I am new to Peppermint and still very green when it comes to Linux for desktops. Besides the slow boot time, Peppermint runs great!

Which is repeated....



Try this...

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /etc/default/grub
find the line that reads:-
Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
and change it to:-
Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video=SVIDEO-1:d"
SAVE the file and exit the text editor.

Back in the terminal run
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
and then REBOOT to test.

Great! Thanks so much. It now boots in about 1.5 minutes. This is probably the best I can expect from an old Duo Core 2 machine and an old hard drive
