• A stop job is running for user manager for UID 1000 (gdm-related)


    Does anyone else see this message while closing / restarting their machine? It makes me wait one and half a minute almost every time. It seems to be Arch-, not Antergos-related, and - I suppose - the GNOME environment. It doesn’t affect my old testing desktop which runs XFCE. It does happen on my home laptop (Antergos/GNOME), and also at the office (Antergos/GNOME/VM).

    Solutions found on the web:

    1. install the watchdog package;
    2. edit /etc/systemd/system.conf by unhashing lines and setting values:
    ShutdownWatchdogSec=10s
    DefaultTimeoutStartSec=05s
    DefaultTimeoutStopSec=05s
    

    …did not help. Does anyone have another idea?

    Could you please check out my game?

    “Not a bug. Will not fix.”

    Sounds like a reply from Oracle: “Firstly: this has already been fixed. Secondly: we couldn’t reproduce the bug you reported. Finally: will not be fixed in current JDK version”. :)

  • @piotr I run both OB and xfce on both my laptop and desktop machines and have not seen this, but rather get a brief “watchdog did not stop!” before restarting/power-down. Like you, the lengthy and annoying “a stop job is running…” was a regular occurrence when I was using Gnome.

  • Yep, I realize it looks like this. A friend uses vanilla Arch + GNOME, which results in the same error. Just wanted to know if someone managed to find a workaround.

    I would love to say a workaround has been found, but to my knowledge none has:disappointed:. If someone around here does know, please do share this incredible knowledge with us! I would love to know!

    Thanks:grinning:.

  • What happens if you log out of your session first before powering-down? I think this is what the church of Gnome recommends.

    Nice try, but it changed nothing. I must admit I’m on gdm / Wayland, but my machine at the office behaves in the same way on defaults.

  • It would be interesting to know what unit is this that is actually delaying the shutdown process.

    First make sure you are running with persistent logging:

    • /etc/systemd/journald.conf should have the Storage property set to auto or persistent. Or it should have it commented.
    • you should have or sudo mkdir the /var/log/journal/ directory.

    With this, when you boot back up after one of those delayed shutdowns, you can run “journalctl -rb -1” to show the log of the last session in reverse chronological order (most recent at the top). Hopefully you may be able to spot the troublemaker, if not by message, by the timestamp differences.

    Hopefully you may be able to spot the troublemaker, if not by message, by the timestamp differences.

    I’m afraid it may be not really instructive. I see no major difference between what’s being saved during normal and troublesome shutdown.

    Well you have me beat there:smile:. Mine only takes about 10 minutes to boot! But that is on actual hardware. I would susect that your is in a VM @joekamprad?
