View Full Version : [kubuntu] System presents mount error messages, takes long time to boot after upgrade

November 21st, 2009, 12:58 AM
After upgrading to Kubuntu 9.10, the laptop of a friend of mine takes a really long time to boot. On the boot screen, it displays the messages:

One or more of the mounts listed in /etc/fstab cannot yet be mounted
/: waiting for /dev/disk/by-uuid/<whatever>
/tmp: waiting for (null)
/c: waiting for /dev/disk/by-uuid/<whatever>
Press ESC to enter a recovery shell

After a while it works, but it takes a really long time. This didn't happen under 9.04. I can't tell you about any warnings or complications in the upgrade process, because I was not present for the upgrade and if any appeared my friend did not note them.
