I installed 4.0 yesterday, and the only problem is with boot time. Seems slower than 3.8. I tried removing Virtual Box as suggested in Release Notes, but I'm not sure I did it correctly. It didn't help in any case. I simply pasted the commands into Terminal and ran them. But they were multiple commands, and I've never been sure of what to do with "Code-Select." If this was wrong, how should I go about doing this?

Hello mdiemer

I try running only one command line at a time, especially when I'm learning or not familiar with the commands in a new task. It slows the process and allows any output from each line to be studied more clearly.

Here are the commands from the LL 4.0 Release Announcement
https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/release-announcements/linux-lite-4-0-beta-released/
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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

Copy and paste one line in a terminal, hit enter, and go on to the next line until all lines are finished. Note any errors or output. If you have already run these commands doing it a second time shouldn't hurt anything.

Edit: Note, I forgot one step, please see post below this.

...and don't forget to untick the vbox client in the menu, settings, session and startup, application auto-start setting.

Thank you Scott and Dana! I ran the commands again, this time one by one, and it made a big difference! I thought I was going to have to live with a slow-booting system, but things are fine now. LL 4.0 is working beautifully on my system, so glad I did the upgrade.

sudo systemctl disable vboxadd.service

Does this also work for speeding up LL3.8 boot-time, which is slow on our Dell Lattitude D630?
I just want to check before entering this in command-line.

Many thanks for any replies.

Linux-user since 2014. 64bit OS installed in Legacy mode on MBR (msdos/ext4) formatted SSDs (except the pi which uses a micro SDHC card):
2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ Arm710@1.2GHz - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ i3-3110M - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz - Manjaro (tried LL3 series but lagged)
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel T3200@2.0GHz - LL4.4/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working beautifully)
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel T7100@1.8GHz - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL really zippy!) - my daily driver  :-)

it did speed up the boot time when i had linux lite 3.8 for me , first you have to "untick the vbox client in the menu, settings, session and startup, application auto-start setting" after that , then you do each command one at a time .

this also speed up the boot time for those and me on linux lite 4.2

So if I use VirtualBox from time to time, I have to have these start services running all the time?  They can't dynamically load when I start up the VirtualBox application?  Seems strange.
