    Lightbulb Long time to boot

    I remember when I did my fresh installation on my new laptop Lenovo g580, the boot time was less than 14 seconds but now it has reach to 27 seconds and after splash screen I see fsck check as well. Is there any way to trace down the boot logs and speed up the boot process ?

    Please check your startup applications. Also did you install any servers like openfire, apache or any other which automatically start as your system start.
    Start up applications are mostly responsible for this. If you are on Ubuntu 12.04 or more then most of your startup applications are hidden from UI "Startup Applications". Please check for the files in /etc/xdg/X11/autostart. Don't remove any file unless you are very sure that you don't need it during startup. You can also share your list here, we'll try to help.

    Re: Long time to boot

    One more thing , FSCK also keeps running after splash screen, which takes more time to boot. I don't want to disable it but I used to have quick boot and safe Ubuntu. That's what I am looking for again.

    Useful information as I've often wondered where they were hidden.

    Thanks.

    hahaha lol, trust me I literally start "yawning" sometimes. if its Windows then it seems valid I can even take a bath and come back to use the desktop but Ubuntu is "quick" and if its slow then somethings wrong.

    Bootchart will help visualize the booting process. If the fsck happening because your disk is having a problem? Linux requires a clean filesystem before booting. If your filesystem is unclean (now a different problem to troubleshoot) then fsck will take some time to check the integrity of the inode tables and overall health of the filesystem before booting.

    This is what comes up during the boot between splash screen and the login screen. It stays for 10 seconds atleast processing everything.
