Recently, after upgrading with
pacman -Syy and
pacman -Syu, I noticed a considerable increase in my laptop’s boot times and the following message started appearing:
[drm:wait_panel_status [i915]] *ERROR* PPS state mismatch
I think it is worth mentioning that -among other packages- the kernel got an upgrade too as can be seen in /var/log/pacman.log:
[2017-12-04 22:11] [ALPM] upgraded linux (4.13.12-1 -> 4.14.3-1)
That being said, I honestly don’t know if that’s what caused the issue, thus I’m posting here instead of the Kernel & Hardware subforum.
quiet kernel parameter with
debug showed that the boot hangs (for 40 seconds roughly) while
random: crng init done is on the screen.
# bootctl update, which however, didn’t seem to change anything.
Not being sure whether the delay and the error messages are connected, what I care about the most is the delay. Is there any way to fix it? I thought about downgrading the kernel or switching to lts, but I am not really familiar with the procedure and would like to avoid it unless it is necessary.
- Both my
/homefolders are on an LVM2 partition, while my
/bootand my swap are on separate partitions. A while before performing the aforementioned upgrade, I took a snapshot of my

- I have changed my
rootkernel param from

- I uploaded a few logs and file contents to my dropbox, since I had trouble uploading them here
Excuse me for the long post, but I wanted to give as much info as I could.
