Re: boot delay 90 secs dev-disk-by

The idea to sub /dev/sda1 ( my swap partition) for the UUID hit home this morning. I booted up the new install of solydX 201902, and again got the 90 sec delay- It as looking for the UUID the O/S had set when it installed, but couldn't find it. So, I edited both fstab files ( old version and new ver...

Re: boot delay 90 secs dev-disk-by

Ilu,

You are right. My fstab shows only solydx and the swap partition. Thx for the clarification.

I have a lot yet to learn about Linux..luckily I like to learn, and these issues provide a way to do that!

Re: boot delay 90 secs dev-disk-by

Silverbear,

Interesting. I just installed solydx 9 on a spare partition. But my fstab shows only the currently booted O/S i.e. solydx 8, not the other two( the remaining one is puppy linux).
The only other entry is the swap.

Can I just add the other partitions? E.g. dev/sda2 dev/sda3..

Re: boot delay 90 secs dev-disk-by

OK. Rebooting was fast ( as it was in the past). ran blkid, and got the UUID of the swap. copied as pasted it into fstab. Rebooted - same fast boot. Still not certain i have a mounted swap... BTW, I don't ever use it for hibernation, In fact no app I have run has probably ever come close to using it...

Re: boot delay 90 secs dev-disk-by

I just looked in three places for the UUID of the swap.. from fstab ( line I commented out ] UUID=fab17f5c-432c-4d11-be06-ef3a24252c56 swap swap sw 0 0 from GParted: UUID=01cdc06d-7095-4c23-b486-128630c1f8f2 from running "blkid": UUID="01cdc06d-7095-4c23-b486-128630c1f8f2" TYPE="swap" PARTUUID="a57f...

Re: boot delay 90 secs dev-disk-by

To Arjen, Size of Swap = 4G ( same as RAM size). Since I have commented out the swap entry in boot.log, I don't get a useful answer to running sysctrl, etc. and boot.log.. Later today I'll put it back and report to you. But, from my recollection, the UUID was the same even after reassiginng the swap...

boot delay 90 secs dev-disk-by

This just started to happen.. I am running SolydX 201701 on a Dell 1525. Boot time increased significantly. I examined boot.log and found this line: "A start job is running for dev-disk-by/[ long number] " It ran for exactly 1min: 30 secs. Online search found it had something to do with my swap part...
