Hello

I've installed a couple of week ago a fresh LL4 OS on my SSD
Everything was find and boots and startup was super fast
But now the system's load very slow.. it takes for it something like 02:20 minutes from pressing enter in GRUB until the first desktop sight
I tried running systemd-analyze blame as suggested on old post here to see what takes so long.. but the output wasn't satisfying

Also.. what is that vboxadd.service? I remember deleting virtual box as I don't really need it right now
I also tried to reformat my swap partition as it was suggested in some post
I did move my home partition to another hard drive
Can someone help? the internet isn't helpful that much this time...  :-\

Read the release notes here:

https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/release-announcements/linux-lite-4-0-final-released/

Use the code to properly deal with vbox additions.

Code: sudo apt purge virtualbox*
sudo systemctl stop vboxadd.service
sudo systemctl stop vboxadd-service.service
sudo systemctl disable vboxadd.service
sudo systemctl disable vboxadd-service.service

Hello.  Same problem here.  The removal of vb via Jerry's post helped, but still over a minute to boot.  I just tried installing kernel 4.4.0. out of curiosity.  Now boot time is about 20 seconds, as it was with lite 3.8.

Well the code to properly deal with the vbox additions only cut down 9 seconds I think I'll try different kernel versions..
I have currently installed 4.15.0
I can try 16 or 17 or downgrade.. what do you recommend?

I am currently on 4.17.0 after trying 4.16.0 and 4.4.0
Boot time still the same.. or even longer with 4.4.0

I have noticed something suspicious
There's a timeout waiting for two devices and after that I saw a "job" that takes 1:30 minutes and I really don't know what it is




The output of systemctl status apparmor.service is:
Code: [Select]
apparmor.service - AppArmor initialization

Jul 08 23:22:32 roy-linuxlite4 systemd[1]: Failed to start AppArmor initialization.
Which I don't really understand........

I have two devices to power up my Linux system which is SSD (/dev/sdb) and HDD
SSD consist of two partitions one for SWAP in the beginning of the drive weights ~30GB and the rest 200GB is for root
The other HDD splitted in half consist of HOME partition (/dev/sdd1) and another ext4 non-relevant old home partition (/dev/sdd2) that will be gone soon...

I think the "job" is cycling between SWAP and ROOT partition doing something to them or just checking them..
And what is that "apparmor" thing fail to parse things? a bug maybe?

I am still new to the linux system so help will be much appreciated

Alright I fixed that "start job" annoying issue
Because there was already an old system before I switched to LL4 (the time I was dual boot with LL3.8 and Win10) and then deleting the old one after everything was okay in LL4 the /etc/fstab file was corrupted
I have noticed my swap partition wasn't on on every boot so I dug again but this time I searched for "start job waiting for device.." and ended up reading this answer edit the file makes it point to the right devices (it still pointed to old swap) save and reboot
Now boot time is ~40 seconds! At F-ing Last..!

Maybe someone should write a tutorial how to properly remove old system from a dual boot  ::)

Thank you all for supporting me I still need to fix apparmor issue.. or at least wait for a fix
Thanks again :)

Run your system on the kernel it came with, and only go forward with repairs for your problem on that kernel. Second problem shouldn't even be there in LL 4.0 so I'm assuming you changed kernels at some point, maybe back and forth.     

first problem
https://bugs.launchpad.net/snapd/+bug/1739485

second problem

I did not change the kernel.  Installed on ssd 3x.  Followed purge VB instructions per release announcements.  Plus 2 minute boot, after VB purge, just under.2 minutes.  I just installled xubuntu 18.04 on same spare ssd, 4.15.0-23-generic.  Boot in 12 seconds.  Reversion to that kernel in Lite broke my wi-fi, but, it booted fast.

Well I did changed the kernel as tomg54 suggested.. ended up with 4.14.0 as nothing worked
I tried to go back to 4.15 but then my hardware acceleration stopped worked
Should I revert back to 4.15? My boot time is now just about 10 seconds..

There is a problem with kernel 4.15.0-24.  For some hardware it slows down boot time. The new update to 4.15.0-29 seems to fix the problem.  Just get the latest updates.

I did managed to upgrade the kernel to 4.15.0-29 and now my system boots normally
But I can't see Apparmor error anymore as it so fast I can't even see the output.. That's a good thing I think  ::)
Anyway to get all boot output to a file maybe?
