17.1.10 Hakoila slow boot due to luks encryption?



I’have installed 17.1.10 Hakoila XFCE with a usb stick on my new ssd harddisk. The boot speed is about 1 minute, but i’ve hoped to get more improvement versus the old sata-hdd. My guess is that the luks encryption slows is down.

Is there a way to shut it off temporarely? To see the not encrypted boot speed? (Otherwise i do not need encryption… :slight_smile: ) Or do i have to redo the complete installation?

The boot speed with the new kernel

4.17.0-2-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jun 8 07:13:17 UTC 2018 x86_64 GNU/Linux

is even slower! 1 min, 30 seconds.
After the passphrase, opening slot0 comes after 10-15 seconds.

Welcome to GRUB - No Kernels to select - with AMDGPU and RADEON (Manjaro 17.1.10 Hakoila)

Before all, you might want to try this:


Ah, i’ll read this:


This is a testing update where kernel 4.9 has a problem. I’m on stable, with

  Host:  Kernel: 4.14.39-1-MANJARO x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc 
  v: 7.3.1 Desktop: N/A Distro: Manjaro Linux 17.1.10 Hakoila 

and now 


But today was a new Stable Update that also fixed the issue with the 4.9 kernel.
See the announcement here:


I’ve already updated, otherwise i have no 17.0.2 kernel
but it seems i have to chroot and alter some iter value…:


OK, i’ll do a re-installation without encryption

yess! After 22 seconds i got the xfce desktop login prompt and after 34 seconds at all i have a working desktop environment (-:
