Have a Debian-based Linux that has been hardware cloned a few times. There are long boot delays even though it has an SSD.
Originally, there had been a little slowly spinning icon saying it was waiting for a job before it timed out. For this, I found a swap file referenced in /etc/fstab that didn't actually exist so I deleted it's line with the corresponding UUID and that "job/timeout" error went away...
...but got replaced with a long blank screen with blinking cursor that flashes a message before it displays the login prompt. The message it flashes is:
Gave up waiting on suspend/resume device. /dev/sda1 [some disk metrics here]
/dev/sda1 is the only partition that exists according to gparted. I'm trying to clear up this long boot delay and find the cause of what it's waiting on. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
EDIT: I tried re-creating a swap file based off of this answer: https://superuser.com/questions/1204627/deleted-a-partition-now-getting-gave-up-waiting-for-suspend-resume-device-mes/1204634 but the same delay occurred but the error message changed to some problem with journaling -- it's too quick for me to see. -- So I just deleted the SWAP file and commented out it's reference in /etc/fstab that brought me back to the problem above.
