    Computer takes too long booting (aprox. 3 min.)

    Greetings all and many thanks for your attention:


    I installed Lubuntu 18.04 LTS on a inspiron 1525. I also partitioned the hard disk. The battery isn’t working so I took it from the computer. Initially there was a problem with the wireless but now (thanks to the great Ubuntu community) it’s perfectly working.


    The computer works very fine with video streaming, Libre Office, Internet, everythings seems to work very fluidly. The only problems are:

    • it takes about 3 minutos to boot. There’s also a huge listing at the booting;
    • when hibernating it takes a minute or so waking up;
    • when shutting down also shows a scroll of information, but it’s quite fast turning off.


    I would like to know how to create a file with that information (booting and shutting down) so that if possible I could correct any errors by your guidance and also if I can generate a file with the schematics of my partitioning so that any mistake could be amended in the same way.


    PS:

    • I analysed everything, memory, disk, and the results were all fine.
    • the previous operating system was Windows Vista
    • I didn’t update the BIOS


    Thanks in advance
    José

    I tried to generate a boot.txt file as this post suggests, but either I can't find its location (used Catfish to try to find it) or I didn't type properly the commands...

    systemd-analyze blame; systemd-analyze critical-chain > boot.txt

    Try this
    Code:
    systemd-analyze blame > boot.txt
    Code:
    systemd-analyze critical-chain > boot2.txt

    Thank you,

    and here it goes:

    * boot.txt
    * boot2.txt

    also using the command "dmesg >blah" for listing the boot messages:

    * blah

    Just for comparison here's my top 4 processes.
    1.339s dev-sda1.device
    1.321s gpu-manager.service
    1.222s systemd-journal-flush.service
    697ms systemd-resolved.service
    But thats i7 + SSD. What are you running? Please post:
    Code:
    inxi -b
    You may have to install it.

    But you say three minutes. Wonder if you have other things going on. please post:
    Code:
    df -h && snap list

    I'm not a fan of people posting 'help me' in multiple places (https://discourse.lubuntu.me/t/compu...in-booting/394) , so I've not put much effort into this. Walter (wxl) over on Lubuntu suggested (https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=273797) maybe helpful in chasing down issues in your `dmesg`, I just compared it to the boot messages of my thinkpad t43 running the same Lubuntu 18.04(.3) LTS x86. The biggest difference is more [drm] messages in yours, which maybe related to your i915 and my amd radeon, but I didn't boot a box another box using an i915 for comparison.

    Your systemd-analyze have two huge items
    1min 30.779s gpu-manager.service
    1min 26.859s plymouth-quit-wait.service
    which relate to the i915 and maybe relate to drm I saw.

    Well, this guy that posted in two different places doesn't have enough time because he's a father in full-time + working, so he has to find the best and quickest place for answers. And because he's a nullity in Linux but he has the best intentions to install it for free on his friends computers (because they don't have money to buy new ones to support new Windows versions) and he never posted at these forums he's also unsure if he's asking the right questions at the right places... he tried two shots. So, I appreciated very much your help here, and I respect and applaud profoundly the cooperative essence of these forums and their members, and please don't take me wrong, but don't waste more of your precious time with me.
    Thank you.

    You have the (in)famous Intel 965 chipset problem.

    You'll need to edit /etc/default/grub (sudo is needed)

    Change the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video=SVIDEO-1:d"

    Save and update grub (sudo update-grub).

    Reboot. Then you'll be fine.
