@Jinith Jayan

Did this "slow" boot start at the same time as your other post; where apps are not launching?
- What have you changed/installed??

There maybe a common thread to your issues...

In the LL4.x series I know one could gain performance if not planning on using VirtualBox and removing. Run the following commands 1 at a time:

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

Are you running LL3.8 and system as shown in your profile?

Dual core w/ 1gb with spinning disk might be close.. Try the above - see if any increase...


If this started after installing/changing something -- did you create a TimeShift* back up as of yet? preferably prior to the issue starting - if you have, you may want to visit restoring as an option. 
-* TimeShift = LL4.x   or   SystemBack = LL3.x

@firenice03
Thank for replying mahn 🙂.

The boot time is 2 minutes ish from the beginning itself but the problem with launching apps started recently.

 I haven't changed anything as I am new to linux😬 but I have installed some third party apps like Midori, syspeek, etc.

Virtual box is already deleted from system.

My profile is correct. I am running LL 3.8 32 bit version on a sony laptop which has a dual core clocked at 2.5 ghz and 1 GB ram.

I am running linux in dual boot from different partitions actually. I kept windows as a backup if mess up something. Would that effect the boot time 🤔?

Unless you have an SSD on board, that boot time is about right for such low specs.

Hi,

Does the Windwos also take a long time to boot?

If so, maybe your hard drive is defective.In Windows, you could install CrytalDiskInfo to check (i.e. checking it's SMART status).https://osdn.net/projects/crystaldiskinfo/downloads/72256/CrystalDiskInfo8_4_2.exe/

In Linux, I never had to check this yet but I'm guessing there is a simple tool to do that.  ;)

systemd-bootchart plus pybootchartgui will at least allow you to see what's happening in the boot process - and how long each bit is taking. May help.
