boot mageia 7 very slow

Postby JJF » Aug 16th, '19, 09:18

After last update - 15 august 2019 - boot Mageia 7 became terribly slow.
Did any body else experience similar phenomenon?
Mine is Mageia 7 dual screen cinnamon

I have the latest updates and haven't experienced any slowdown on boot. What's the output of the "systemd-analyze critical-chain" command on your terminal?

Code: Select all

I suppose there's nothing wrong there, apart from some network delays. Maybe there's some issue with Cinnamon (I'm sorry, I can't help you with that, never used it)

You could save at least 20s from disabling network-up and mandriva-everytime services. As root

Code: Select all
systemctl mask mandriva-everytime.service
systemctl disable network-up.service


But it would be more helpful if you could run the following as root and then afterwards attach the resulting file boot.svg here:
Code: Select all
systemd-analyze plot > boot.svg


Also, as you only mention slow boot, I suppose the slow part if before the display manager actually starts?
Please also show the output as root of
Code: Select all
dkms status
Cauldron is not for the faint of heart!
Caution: Hot, bubbling magic inside. May explode or cook your kittens!

Well, your system needs 130 seconds initialising the kernel until it actually starts systemd and the rest of the init process. Could also be some kind of hardware issue.

I'd also remove most of those virtualbox kernel modules, all the ones apart from the one for the kernel you're using or the 3 most recent ones or so.

There's also some more you can clean up:

systemd-journal-flush.service (17.118s)
=> clean older journal entries, try as root with
Code: Select all
journalctl --vacuum-size=100M

mandriva-everytime.service (10.578s)

=> mask this with
Code: Select all
systemctl mask mandriva-everytime.service

network-up.service (12.581s)
speech-dispatcherd.service (7.829s)


=> disable those if you don't need them.

Apart from all that either there's some kind of hardware problem or that is a really slow box, as quite a lot of simple services each take several seconds to load.
