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

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

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
On this screenshots you can see both drives in comparison, the ssd is much faster.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Lucid Lynx Takes Too Long To Boot

May 22, 2010

I installed bootchart and uploaded an image of my latest boot on imageshack: [URL] but I do not know really how to interpret it. Bare in mind that I did not use to have this problem while running Karmic...back then the OS started twice as faster as it does now after the update (now it takes at least 75 seconds to boot) .

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.

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.

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.

Ubuntu :: Panel Takes Ages To Load On Login With Lucid

May 30, 2010

On Lucid, using the nVidia proprietary drivers, the panel takes about 15-20 seconds to load after loging in. Everything else works fine, I can use my desktop shortcuts and open other programs, just the panel leaves an empty space at the top and bottom, until it loads.

I don't have this problem on a laptop with Intel graphics running Lucid, nor when using Nouveau drivers on this computer. I read somewhere that it could be due to gdmsetup not having it's config file, but even after trying the suggested workaround (opening gdmconfig and changing settings so the config file is made) the problem persists. If I run "killall gnome-panel" the panel disappears (not surprisingly) and then briefly pops back up before disappearing again for about 10 seconds.

Could this be something to do with Compiz? With the Nouveau drivers Compiz is disabled, so Compiz is the only thing I can think of that affects the panel differently between the two graphics drivers.

Ubuntu :: Lucid - Out Of Memory In Seconds After Booting Kernel

Sep 4, 2010

Why my 10.04 install runs out of memory when it has hardly had chance to load the kernel. The symptoms were that it sometimes will hang after the grub screen with a blinking cursor. My user space splash screen doesn't appear either, it was when I was trying to fix that that I spotted the problem:

from my dmesg file:

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?

Jul 26, 2010

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.

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:

Ubuntu :: Pause Of About 30 Seconds During Boot?

May 3, 2010

I'm using a MacBook 2.1 with Lucid.

After i hit Enter in GRUB, there is a message on top of the screen saying "booting up", and it stays there for 20 to 30 seconds. Then everything proceeds normally. I think i caught a message saying that something couldn't be found, but it flashed too rapidly.

Here is an extract of my dmesg. I'm assuming the part between [] is timestamps, and it takes about 40 seconds to go from GRUB to the Login screen, so it fits. Nothing is happening during 32 seconds.

Ubuntu :: Boot Hangs For 60 Seconds?

Jun 17, 2010

I am looking to speed up my boot time; it is currently around the 2-2.5 minute mark from Grub to desktop (including about 15 seconds at the login screen while I type my password).

I have forced ureadahead to reprofile, and have rebooted a few times until the boot time is fairly stable/consistent.

No xorg errors and only one warning ((WW) The directory "/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic" does not exist.)

However, dmesg reports the following:

[ 1.121369] Freeing unused kernel memory: 656k freed
[ 1.121926] Write protecting the kernel text: 4676k
[ 1.121977] Write protecting the kernel read-only data: 1840k

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.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Takes Minutes To Start Working After Boot / Fix It?

Oct 13, 2010

This is kind of cross post from the 10.10 beta forum, but since that thread went by without a solution, forum (and thread) are locked and this problem still exists, I'll try again.

When I reboot my machine, it seems to go pretty quickly. However looking at the log it seems that most everything is running after about 8.6 seconds, and then USB starts loading up. The first log entry regarding USB comes at 32 seconds, second one at 62 seconds. The keyboard starts working at 84 seconds and the mouse at 166 seconds.

Note, this same system was running 9.10, 10.4 and various other distros I tested without such problems...

I've removed all hubs, everything is directly connected to the computer. code...

Ubuntu :: Edit The Boot Screen So Instead Of 14 Seconds

Nov 12, 2010

I dual boot Ubuntu with Windows, so every time I turn on my computer, I have to choose a system.

I rarely use Windows, but I still need it on here for some applications. Being that I'm going to be using Ubuntu 90% of the time, I was wondering if there was a way to boot directly to Ubuntu without erasing Windows.

Is this possible? I'd want to be able to press a key at start up or something so I can still use Windows if I want to.

If that's not possible, how do I edit the boot screen so instead of 14 seconds (or whatever it is), it boots Ubuntu in one or two seconds?

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...

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Takes A Minute Before It Tries To Connect After Boot/suspend

Oct 16, 2010

Basically when I login back from a suspend or after I boot the pc, the wifi takes 30seconds to a minute before it starts to connect. This makes it very annoying to have to wait for no reason.

Basically the issue is caused by the wifi not having a script to search for a network after a suspend.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 On Macbook Pro - Now Takes 4 Attempts To Boot And Beeps On Restart

Apr 29, 2011

I've tried to install 11.04 on my Macbook Pro (5,4) today. I had two drives in the machine, an SSD as my main drive, and an HD. I installed rEFIt before attempting to install Ubuntu. I moved my Snow Leopard install to the secondary HD & made sure I could boot to it. Then, I used the live CD & gparted to clear the 1st drive (the SSD), create the swap space, create the Ubuntu partition, and launch the install, where I used what I had just created on the SSD. The install completed okay (but with no option to select where the GRUB installer went, like some tutorials tell you to look out for). This seemed to go okay, so I went to restart at the end of the install, but the machine didn't come back up.

Instead, the power came on & I could hear the drives, but the screen stayed black, the battery light flashed a load of times really quickly (too quickly to count, but at least 10 times), and then the machine let out 1 long beep and stayed on the black screen. I forced it to power down & tried again, and just got a black screen, the battery light shining steadily, and no beep. I forced it to power down again, and got the same, then again, and got the same, and then a 4th time, which actually allowed me to boot. And this has been the pattern since then. I shut down, and my first attempt to restart gets me the flashing light and the beep, with the black screen. I try 3 more times to power down and restart, and just get the black screen. Then, *every* time on the 4th time, I'm allowed to boot.

The same routine will be gone through the next time I power down and try to restart. I've tried totally clearing the disk in gparted, restoring the OSX install from TimeMachine, everything I could think of, but all to no avail. Finally, thinking that maybe the OSX install I had safe on the secondary HD might still be okay (looking at it in gparted showed an EFI boot section & everything), I opened up my MBP, swapped the drives around so that the HD is now the main drive, and the SSD the secondary, and renamed the drives so that the primary HD is now called 'Macintosh HD' and is first in the list of drives that appear when I manage to boot each 4th attempt. But, to my great disappointment, I still got exactly the same error. Can anyone offer any advice on how to:

1) Get my machine booting to a safe Snow Leopard install on the (now primary) HD?
2) Safely install Ubuntu on the (now secondary) SSD?

Obviously the first is a top priority, as I need my machine in order to work! Then I can concentrate on moving my dev environment to Ubuntu, which I've been dying to do for ages.
