Hi,

(Throwing some ideas post :-) )

I agree that this should be included in Lite Tweaks, maybe in an advanced or in a special "Diagnostics" section / module?
But, to make it more user flriendly, I would add some "Info" text in the program though, just above the buttons on the main window.

I push new Linux users to click and try everything so opening the tool with a text saying what is does would help guide/teach users.
Maybe, something like :
"This tool helps diagnose startup issues related to SystemD. SystemD provides a standard process for controlling what programs run when a Linux system boots up."

Now that I think about it, I would find this helpful in a lot of "specialized" applications, but that could be the noob in me talking. ;)

@ejc

For your , Asus eeebox 1501b, do you know if the harddisk inside is a SSD?
I regularly have problems in laptops and micro PCs (low to no airflow) with a "standard" harddrive getting hot, specially if it's a 7200rpm drive.
(guess this should be moved to a support section though :-S )

Perhaps a list of what can be shut-off for a faster boot up that 99% of users can do without the fear of doing damage to the O.S?
That would be neat for folks like myself.

@Rapidrob

If you haven't tried and not planning on using VirtualBox..

Performance Tips:

- For start up (boot time) - if you have no plans to run VirtualBox, and you want faster boots, you can remove it's supported additions:
Code: [Select]
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
Menu, Settings, Session and Startup, Application Autostart. Untick vboxclient.

VirtualBox support is included and has always been because this is how many people review an OS before they install it. Having the right support - clipboard, drag & drop, network, graphics etc gives a significantly better impression of an OS's function.

- Setting a static IP address (see the Help Manual) will improve boot times, it's something I've always used myself. Instead of waiting for your router to assign you an IP, the OS already has it set. One less thing for the start up procedure to spend time probing for.

Hi, thanks for the VirtualBox reminder... I looked around but I didn't see it in Sticky anywhere...

I also just noticed in your sig you had an Atom with SiS?
Maybe you had to use it as a punishment... or lost a dare? :DD
I'm just kidding, but when I work on a "trouble" system with an SiS chipset. I can almost flip a coin that it comes from a SiS "incompatility" of some kind.

@TheDead  VB info was in the release notes. It is stickied.

@TheDead
Yes it was in the release notes :)


As for SiS... UGH -- it was what I had, and an early on box too try to "learn" on...
I always found it was a custom/modified xorg.conf..


I have bookmarked.. To remind me LOL

https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/video-cards/sis-671771-issue/


There are probably many other links in the forum for SiS too ... but UGH...
I remember trying a setting, rebooting and having to undo/correct in a tty and try again... I made sure I had backups LOL

@trinidad and @firenice03
Oh, yeah, those release notes thingy. I knew I saw them info's somewhere! (says me with a potato farmer's accent)
Now I feel like the times when you removed those little tags from clothes and then ask yourself if you can put them in the dryer without getting an gnome suit afterwards.

SiS... in the news, they say that they're not nice people, beheading others, etc..... Oh wait... thats another group.
Both can scare people though... ;)
