I run ubuntu 16.04 on a Dell laptop; I just love the fact that you can set the workspace to a grid format in 16.04, unlike say 18.04 where it looks like a line, but not sure if 20 does have the grid workspace setup. CPU: Intel Core i5-i7 RAM: 8GB Storage: 512GB PCIe SSD.
When i start ubuntu, i get a message:
A job is running for creating volatile and temporary files and directories
This process takes a while to complete so that ubuntu eventually starts as can be seen in:
systemd-analyze critical-chain The time after the unit is active or started is printed after the "@" character. The time the unit takes to start is printed after the "+" character. graphical.target @2min 25.315s └─multi-user.target @2min 25.315s └─hddtemp.service @2min 25.291s +22ms └─network-online.target @2min 25.290s └─NetworkManager-wait-online.service @2min 15.008s +10.280s └─NetworkManager.service @2min 12.427s +2.568s └─dbus.service @2min 12.223s └─basic.target @2min 12.168s └─sockets.target @2min 12.166s └─snapd.socket @2min 12.124s +39ms └─sysinit.target @2min 12.103s └─systemd-update-utmp.service @2min 12.063s +38ms └─systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service @5.904s +2min 6.076s └─local-fs.target @5.897s └─local-fs-pre.target @5.705s └─systemd-tmpfiles-setup-dev.service @4.067s +1.635s └─kmod-static-nodes.service @3.861s +202ms └─systemd-journald.socket @3.485s └─-.slice @2.994s
What could be the reason behind
systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service taking up too much time while booting?
