Fedora :: SSD Speed - Boot Up Takes 30 Seconds

Jun 25, 2011

Some days ago I switched from Ubuntu to Fedora and it is just great, Gnome 3 looks awesome. I waited for the installation of Fedora until I got my new OCZ Vertex 2 SSD and the first benchmarks were astonishing. The SSD has an average Read/Write speed of ca. 270Mb/s. Well, now I installed Fedora 15 and I was expecting a boot time of less than 20 seconds, but in fact it takes 30 seconds. By way of comparison, Ubuntu takes on my old HDD about 27 seconds, so a bit less than it takes on the SSD.

Then I tested some software, I started Eclipse and compared the start time on Ubuntu (HDD) and on Fedora (SDD). Starting Eclipse from the HDD took about 6 seconds while starting from the SSD took about 7 seconds. The differences in the results are not big, but taking into account that the SSD is at least twice as fast as the HDD the results are really strange. Now I would like to ask you how I may increase the performance of Fedora on my SSD?

Some notes about my hardware:
Intel Core2Duo 3GHz
4GB Ram
Sata2
On this screenshots you can see both drives in comparison, the ssd is much faster.

Ubuntu :: Lucid Takes 44 Seconds To Boot?

May 19, 2010

I've been using lucid since the pre alpha and I don't know why but I think it kept getting slower and slower to me until I've noticed "Windows" for god's sakes starts up faster than lucid! I've looked for some suggestions but nothing paid off. I've made a boot chart for my boot. I've noticed mount.ntfs-3g is taking too much time but how to stop it. My fstab is

Code:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

Fedora X86/64bit :: KDE Application Launcher Takes About 8 Seconds To Display K Menu

Dec 28, 2009

I am running FC12 x86_64 with KDE 4.3.3 using an NVidia GeForce 9600 graphics card. I installed the drivers followings leigh's procedure and everything works fine -- apart from the fact that clicking the the "f" button to bring up the K menu takes between 8 and 10 seconds. Same thing happens if I select anything from the K desktop pop-up menu, like the Konsole or the run command for example. I disabled desktop effects but this had no impact.

Fedora :: System Grinds To Halt - Takes Several Seconds Just To Move Cursor

Aug 21, 2011

I'm running Fedora 14. I'm running a Athlon X2 with 4gb memory and nVidia 8400. I'm using the nvidia drivers ver 260. I'm running KDE 4.6. I've disabled desktop effects (when turnt on they work a charm, performance issues are the same either way). If I open any more than a few applications at once, the system grinds to a halt. even working with Kwrite is painful and it can take several seconds just to move the cursor, browsing the file is almost impossible.

When I have even 7 windows open X goes into a frenzy and sticks around 90% cpu usage. Even with no windows open if I move my mouse between screens X cpu usage stays between 50% and 90%. The system is unbearably slow. i have a XP Pro system with the same spec, lower GPU and I have no problems having 2/3 Visual Studios open, Photoshop, a few skype windows, Eclipse and the android emulator the system remains responsive but with this Linux box I can't even do basic stuff in Kwrite without it grinding to a haltJust.

OpenSUSE Network :: 'Looking Up' Sites Takes Several Seconds When Browsing

Feb 28, 2010

I recently installed 11.2 and Firefox takes several seconds to connect to each site.I pinged my machine, the gateway, the DNS servers (by IP address), and other various sites (by domain name), all without delay. But when I browse using Firefox, there's a 3-second delay while "looking up", and finally it connects. Any ideas what's causing this? I'm using Gnome and don't have another browser installed to test.

Ubuntu :: Grub Screen Takes About 20 Seconds To Minute To Load

May 21, 2010

I just installed linux mint a couple of days ago and everything went great but now the grub screen takes about 20 seconds to a minute to load. It's not a huge issue but kind of annoying since the one that ubuntu installed took a second and I was at the menu. I imagine that it has to do with the background picture but i'm not sure if that would slow it down that much.

Fedora :: Boot Up Takes Several Minutes

Jan 5, 2010

I just installed fedora 12 on my new harddrive, and it's booting up extremely slow (but once I'm logged into the system, it all seems to run fine). Right now my set-up looks like this: 1TB HD: new install of fedora 12 300GB HD: Windows xp & my previous install of fedora 12

My previous installation of fedora 12 never booted this slow until after I installed Fedora 12 on my new HD. It seems to freeze right before the log in screen, and after I log in, both installations take about a minute to get to a usable desktop. I pressed the Esc key during startup to see if anything was wrong, and it didn't hang up on anything. However, as it was loading the login screen (where it first begins to get sluggish), I was kicked out of the terminal view and forced to wait in the gui for log in.

Fedora X86/64bit :: 11 Takes 45+ Minutes To Fully Boot

Jun 22, 2009

Machine Specs: Asus P5B Deluxe w/ Intel Core 2 Duo E8400, 8gigs of ram and an Asus GeForce 8400 GS. I downloaded and installed the x86_64 DVD Installation disc for Fedora 11 the day of the release. I allowed the installer to utilize 100% of the disk with the default partition configuration. I only installed KDE.

Upon first boot the machine didn't boot in under 20 seconds, but it wasn't slow enough to give it any though. Once logged in, everything ran great. The system has been running great since the launch date. I rebooted once or twice since them and thought the same thing as the first boot, not particularly fast, but not slow enough to care.

This morning I rebooted and it almost seemed broken. It takes about 20 minutes to get past the loading bar, and way too much time to log in. When the loading bar is going I hit escape. It looked like "Starting system message bus" took the longest, but it wasn't the only slow thing. After some more time, the background for the log in prompt appeared. Once the log in prompt fully appeared I mistyped my password. It took a good four minutes to authenticate unsuccessfully. I reentered my information correctly. It took another four minutes for the prompt to disappear, then it continued to load very slowly.

Fedora :: 30 Seconds Of No Activity During Boot Sequence

Nov 22, 2009

I have been enjoying Fedora 11 for sometime, and decided to try Fedora 12. All in all it is working, but the boot sequence seemed much slower. I decided to use bootchart to examine the boot process on my old F11 and new F12 installations. The result show F11 booting in ~34 seconds, and F12 booting in ~57 seconds. Interestingly, the first 30 seconds show that only kthreadd, khelper, and ata/0 are running. CPU and disk utilization are both zero during this 30 seconds span, then all of a sudden everything starts loading, CPU and Disk utilization spike up, and ~23 seconds later I get to the login screen. I sent an email to Harald Hoyer about this, and to my surprise he was kind enough to respond. He suggested I check the BIOS to make sure I had disabled the floppy drive, which I did. The problem persists, so I was wondering if anyone here was having a similar issue and if so how they have dealt with it. I have blacklisted the floppy module (just to make sure)

Fedora :: Automatic Boot In 10 Seconds +10 +10 + 10 Ad Infinitum?

Jan 12, 2011

I used LILI to create a live USB key - I believe I used the 686MB version. Everything worked fine. I wanted to try the full DVD install, so I did the same with that image.

Now, it doesn't matter if I load it in virtualbox or if I boot up my comp with the USB stick, I get to the Linux boot menu, choose "Persistent Mode", and then below it shows "Automatic boot in 10 Seconds..."

Once it counts down to 0 it just resets to 10, and keeps on counting!

Fedora Installation :: 10 - Automatic Boot In 10 Seconds - All Text Is Jumbled Up And Distorted And Everything Appears Frozen

Jan 14, 2009

Im trying to install Fedora 10 on to my HP Pavilion a340a (full product specifications: [url] ), i boot from the cd and it says "Automatic boot in 10 seconds..." etc, i get past that screen and am then at a screen with 2 shades of blue and a white bar moving at the bottem of the screen towards the words "Fedora 10", on the next screen, the log on screen, all the text is jumbled up and distorted, and everything appears frozen, except that i can move the mouse. I am not sure what the problem is but i know its not the cd because after having problems with hp pc i decided to try it on my Acer Extensa 2300 laptop (1.5ghz, 1.2gb ram, 40gb hdd, 32mb intel integrated graphics) and that installed fine, without a problem. This has led me to beleive that Fedora may not be liking the intel graphics on my HP Pavilion, and i dont know why. i really want to use Fedora 10 on my desktop. I should mention that i want to dual boot Windows XP and Fedora 10 on Pavilion, windows is already installed.

OpenSUSE Network :: FTP Network Speed Using 11.4 Falls Down To 15 MiB/s After 30 Seconds At 90 MiB/s

Jun 8, 2011

I'm facing an odd problem with a fresh install of OpenSuse 11.4 on a Dell PE-2950, using NIC Broadcom BCM5708C (rev 12) NetXtream II. Driver's are up to date. I'd installed vsftpd and configure it. I can connect from anywhere in the network where I setup this Server. The odd problem is that when I'm sending a big file (5.5 GiB for example), from another PE-2950 server (Windows Server 2003 64 bits R2) with another BCM5708C nic, the speed of the transfer starts at 90 MiB/s approx. but after 30 seconds , it drops to 15 MiB/s and never raise again. Driver's are up to date too.

However, from another Server in the network, a Dell R710 with SLES 10 SP3, the transfer speed is at 90-100-110 MiB/s all the time. The switch is a HP Procurve 2910al-24G, with all ports at gigabit speed. I'd tried with different FTP clients in Windows: WinSCP and the Windows's ftp client, but the result is the same: speed falls down after 30 seconds approx. using the Windows-Box.

Ubuntu Installation :: Triple-Boot / Saying Can't Boot And Takes To A Startup Recovery?

Sep 10, 2010

I have a Computer, It came with Windows 7 64bit on it. I installed Ubuntu through WUBI. I used the Windows Disk Management program to resize my HDD. I shrunk the main drive and created a 20 gig free space. I installed WindowsXP on this 20g space. I had to change from AHCI to ATA. I started my new XP installation. As I should have expected my the screen that let me pick between Windows 7 and Ubuntu was gone, and it just said XP. Well thats cool. I get in XP use bcdeasy and use the install Win7 to mbr. So I restarted. Great I now I have Ubuntu and Win7... but no XP. So i think, okay, ill boot into Ubuntu, use the update grub command and XP will be there, so i do it and restart. No XP, So i try to boot into Win7 and see if i can do something in there.. No luck it says it can't boot and takes me to a startup recovery thing. Which, as Windows recovery things tend to do, doesn't find anything wrong. So I have Ubuntu now, which is great, but I do need Windows.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Takes A Long Time To Boot Up?

After I installed a new hard drive, when I booted up into Ubuntu, it would give me this error: "failed command: WRITE DMA". So I tried the workarounds and I guess it just covered the log with the Boot Splash, now it's taking a long time just to boot up.

Ubuntu :: Computer Takes Way Too Long To Boot?

Nov 15, 2010

I recently changed my computer so it would auto boot into Ubuntu, but if I hold down the shift key, I can bring up the GRUB menu so I can choose Windows in the rare times I use it[URL]Anyway, I noticed that when I did that, it actually took longer to boot. I timed it today and it took 45 seconds from the time I pressed the power button to get to the login screen! My friend uses Linux a lot and says even with Ubuntu (which he thinks is "too slow") it shouldn't take that long.

Slackware :: Rc.syslog Takes 5mins+ To Go Through During Boot

Mar 16, 2010

reason is that the slack11 server in question was running for more than 150 days non stop. but due to a long power failure i had to shut down the ups yesterday and so the server too. anyway, i rebooted everything and somethings didn't quite work like i remember them to work from the last reboot (i.e. without anything that would alarm me).. ie. rc.syslog takes a million years (about 5mins+) to process during the bootup. i have no idea why, from then on boot process continues fine.

the only thing that might be remotely related is that recently i installed ulogd in order to log the firewall to a different file. i decided to start my rc.ulogd directly after the rc.syslogd start in rc.M. now, it doesn't seem to have any effect if i comment out the startup of rc.ulogd... rc.syslogd will still take ages to process during boot. if i comment out rc.syslogd from rc.M then booting will proceed at the expected speed and once i login, and start syslogd manually it will fireup quickly... i have tested this configuration in a slack13 box i have recently setup as a router-gateway and it worked fine there.. no prob with syslogd...

CentOS 5 :: How To Speed Up Boot Time / Disable Or Change Eth0 At Boot / Searching?

Jan 11, 2010

This on a Vostro 1220 Laptop w/ Intel 5300 wireless:

A.I have long boot up time.I think it's because of the eth0 network search which I don't use.I have an intel wireless 5300 card running.How can I speed up the boot time, i.e. disable or change the eth0 at boot, the searching?

B:When I restart or shutdown, the screen flashes repeatedly and gets some garbled colors along the top before finally rebooting looks like windows ME or something).This vostro has an intel x4500HD vid chipset in it.

C.How do I get into gnome configuration editor to turn on Metacity compositing? Alt-F2 and run gconf-editor doesn't do it. I don't do compiz, but need compositing.

D.I need to install Chromium Browser as it sync my bookmarks.I have RPMforge enabled btw also...how can I do that? I.e. rpm repo for chromium?

This will help me get off to a running start so I can get up to speed on CentOS..

Ubuntu :: Lost Boot Option - TrueCrypt Takes Up MBR

Nov 14, 2010

I have a dual-boot setup with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10. I used TrueCrypt to encrypt my drive, but in doing so I lost my Ubuntu boot option (as TrueCrypt boot takes up the MBR). So now I'm trying again, using TrueCrypt's option of multiple OS installed on same drive. At the moment, it won't let me do that since the Grub boot is on the same partition as the Win7 bootI. In a nutshell, I need to move Grub to another partition so that I can load from that boot option once I <esc> from the TrueCrypt boot. created a new partition for Grub, but don't know how to move it. My partitions as they stand now are:

Does anyone know how I can move Grub to sda4? Or if I'm totally on the wrong track here?

Ubuntu :: Maverick Takes Too Long To Boot (1.5 Minutes)?

Jan 25, 2011

It's been a while since this problem started. I have an Acer Aspire 4720z laptop with Ubuntu 10.10 installed. My laptop takes a whole damn 1.5 minutes to boot up and login (measured according to bootchart; I have auto-login enabled) (The majority of this 1.5 minutes is taken up after boot up, so it might indicate a problem with Xorg.)I don't know whether this is relevant, but when I boot up, a message gets displayed: "ata4.01: failed to resume link (SControl 0)". Also, this problem started right around the time I upgraded from Lucid to Maverick, so it could be some problem with my upgrade.find the source of this issue.ATTACHED: bootchart image from last login.boot.log:

Code:
fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2
