Ubuntu: Why is Ubuntu 16.04 so slow to boot on my Dell Inspiron 6000?



Question:

Ubuntu takes roughly 3.5 to 4 minutes to boot on my old Dell Inspiron 6000 (2GB Ram).

Removing powerd solved the problem for someone else's device, but powerd is not loaded on my installation.


Solution:1

Ubuntu 16.04 comes with systemd as the start-up manager.

The following command can show you all the startup services of your system from longest to shortest to help you determine what can be causing your slow boot:

systemd-analyze blame  

Here is an example output of that command:

terrance@terrance-ubuntu:~$ systemd-analyze blame            5.077s NetworkManager-wait-online.service            3.921s postfix.service            1.806s winbind.service            1.789s nmbd.service            1.540s samba-ad-dc.service            1.405s dev-sde1.device            1.393s fail2ban.service            1.222s upower.service            1.210s accounts-daemon.service            1.169s vmware.service            1.034s smbd.service             895ms apt-daily.service             797ms media-500GB.mount             768ms media-250GB_SHARE.mount             762ms ModemManager.service             758ms networking.service             683ms media-Seagate.mount             639ms NetworkManager.service             592ms vboxdrv.service             578ms media-320GB.mount             453ms grub-common.service             450ms gpu-manager.service             420ms vmware-USBArbitrator.service  

Hope this helps!

Why so slow?

Ubuntu is a heavy operating system with a lot of demanding resources. It has a lot of "eye-candy" that can slow down the system, too.

Try a different Ubuntu flavor

Other Ubuntu flavors, like Xubuntu or Lubuntu, keep all of the features in Ubuntu but with a lighter and faster interface.
