Zenwalk 8 + latest updates, slow boot


Dear All,

I installed Zenwalk Current March build (ISO), and upgraded to 4.14.28 kernel as apposed to whats there on ISO i.e 4.14.24.

After this installation and updating till yesterday package base (Current and Zenwalk packages repo), still facing almost 4-5 minutes of boot delay.

Upon investigating in logs, this is what i could find.

/var/log/messages:

In above log messages, the highlighted lines are causing huge delay in boot. Not sure why??

Once this stage is passed, then there is another 2-3 minutes of delay after printing message "Triggering Udev messages..".
I am looking for messages related to Init 4 scripts. However, looking into Xorg.0.log, i could not find anything unusual.
Attaching the log here.

Also, looking at this thread https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...reless-783279/, i did the similar changes here. Still no luck.

Kindly please help in resolving this issue.

Thanks

This doesn't seems to be Zenwalk specific.

I cannot reproduce, but I will be aware of any similar report ...

thanks

Hello Jp

Yes i think its not really zenwalk specific. But with the logs i have provided, i am thinking more of kerne scripts and init scripts which are playing foul.
Something is not right.

I have checked the harddrive health wiht smartmon tools. No issies. I did e2fsck checks on all partitions. No problem.

Still wondering why those long delays during boot?

Is there any other logs i can look for particularly? I have added "debug" argument to the kernel parameters via grub. Still no luck.

Thanks

I am just mounting / as ext4. No other drives/partitions at the boot time.

I did the e2fsck check on / as well as other partitions. Fixed all the bad blocks too. Refered this article for fixing

Update:
Downloaded the latest zenwalk-current_180419.iso and upon completion, i still had the same problem (boot hang).
However, when i updated to the latest repos, the problem disappeared. May be udev updated packages resolved the issue. Not sure.

However, the problem with Nvidia 340.xx incompatible with Xorg 1.20 is still a problem.
Otherwise, all good to go.

Hi,

Here I noticed that the latest patched xorg-server update from Slack solves the problem on Radeon, so I guess it's the same for nouveau.

Thanks for your tests I will upload a new ISO soon

Great. I shall wait for the updated package and then install Nvidia driver.

On the flip side, I hope Nvidia shall release updated driver soon.
