Loading initial ramdisk

why does my new build appear to stick at that for ‘quite a few seconds’?
It’s a fast CPU so the boot should be instant methinks :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Can you post the output of these two commands:

systemd-analyze blame
systemd-analyze critical-chain

A tip: when adding outputs like the commands above, you could use program eos-sendlog:

systemd-analyze blame | eos-sendlog
systemd-analyze critical-chain | eos-sendlog

and show the resulting internet addresses here.

hi guys

hmmm why am I running tlp.service on a desktop? lol

These are among the “most minimal” number of services I have seen.

However I am not sure if

systemd-analyze blame
systemd-analyze critical-chain

are the right tools to use here since the loading of the initial ramdisk is in the early userspace prior to systemd, If I am not mistaken. Something I am too often to my liking :blush: :sweat_smile:

And also:

How many are we talking about?


over 20 seconds!! I’ve tested with another SSD and that one only delays for a few seconds…

What does this mean? You have a different SSD in the new build?

no i was using the SSDs before…I have a few spares as ‘hot disaster recovery/backup’
it seems to have speeded up actually, i think we’re down to a few seconds again, bizarre
