• 2 minute boot delay

    So today I got a bunch of deepin package updates, seems almost all of the deepin applications got updates. After installing I rebooted, but something weird happened.

    I got some disk related message (looked like the fsck output), no errors reported… And after that nothing. I waited, and after two minutes the desktop booted normally.

    I checked dmesg, and except for a user-journal being corrupted, I couldn’t see anything out of the ordinary. As noted in the time stamps, it took 120 seconds to keep going here:

    [    3.402866] systemd-journald[273]: File /var/log/journal/88dc714a5b1d40c6994ba6c2b97c0315/user-1000.journal corrupted or uncleanly shut down, renaming and replacing.
    [    3.647926] fuse init (API version 7.26)
    [    5.218778] e1000e: eno1 NIC Link is Up 1000 Mbps Full Duplex, Flow Control: Rx/Tx
    [    5.218826] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eno1: link becomes ready
    [  124.735181] cfg80211: Loading compiled-in X.509 certificates for regulatory database
    [  124.741137] cfg80211: Loaded X.509 cert 'sforshee: 00b28ddf47aef9cea7'

    I’m not really sure where to start digging here. Using Lightdm and starting it manually gives the same disk message followed by a 120 second wait. Any hints on what to look for appreciated.

    One place to look is /etc/fstab if you have any own special assignments there.

    Otherwise journalctl command should give you more info (with sudo), see also

    man journalctl

    Maybe something like:

    sudo journalctl -xb
  • Thanks for the tip. I did find something interesting with journalctl:

    Jul 20 14:44:48 archdesktop dbus-daemon[518]: [session uid=1000 pid=518] Failed to activate service 'com.deepin.dde.Welcome': timed out (service_start_timeout=120000ms)

    So it fails to start the service with a 120 second timeout, which is exactly what I’m seeing. Guessing something in the deepin updates that came out today broke the welcome screen. I’m thinking this will probably get fixed in an update soon, but if anyone knows how this can be fixed manually, I’d appreciate some pointers :)

    Sorry, I’m not using Deepin so unfortunately cannot help. :(
    But there are many Deepin users here, I’m sure they’ll give more info as soon as they have it. :)

  • As I suspected, got an update to startdde today that seems to have resolved the issue. I’m now back to fast booting. :)
