Very slow boot after SHUTDOWN; quick after RESTART
« on: May 18, 2018, 07:39:29 am »
I have trawled everywhere trying to solve this as I think it's a usb issue rather than specifically Sparky. No success, so here I am.

I cannot remember when this started but here it is: I run Sparky 5 XFCE from a USB stick which seems to work perfectly well. However, if I click SHUTDOWN then boot up again it takes forever (literally minutes) stuck on "loading initial ramdisk ..." before finally loading up. But if I click RESTART it loads almost immediately. I seem to recall reading somewhere once that RESTART does not stop everything, so I am guessing something stays running that normally takes forever to fire up. The problem does not occur with Deepin, nor with Windows, that I have installed on the hard drive. I cannot find anything in any logs to explain it. Anyone any idea?

I looked up a little on systemd-analyze which when "blame" is added  will detail time spent on boot up.  I know, this is not your problem.  My looking at "man systemd-analyze"  yielded no good ideas. 

What logs.  "journalctl -b -1" and skip to the end and maybe look at the time stamps.   Also try journalctl -b -1 | grep ailed        These are not elegant solutions. 

A couple years  back I had similar problems, slow network shutdown, and usb's.  I rememeber people were posting on BunsenLabs Forum and also on Siduction forum.    Hopefully others will have better info.
