How to speed up boot for 5.14.2-1-MANJARO?

How to know which systems are safe to mask and not?


Startup finished in 6.250s (firmware) + 2.629s (loader) + 3.873s (kernel) + 22.577s (userspace) = 35.330s reached after 20.938s in userspace

Just get an SSD. It will boot instantly.

Startup finished in 2.456s (kernel) + 1.838s (userspace) = 4.294s reached after 1.354s in userspace

no Speedup needed :slight_smile:

My SSD has windows and dual boot is not an option for me due to storage problems.

ok, so 20…30 seconds on hard disk is normal

Clean your journals so it doesn’t take 10 seconds on boot to do so.

How can I do that?

With some optimization is possible to give speedup to SSD (SSD 860 EVO 500GB) :slight_smile:

Startup finished in 874ms (kernel) + 695ms (initrd) + 477ms (userspace) = 2.047s reached after 477ms in userspace

But I learned to know my system; I disabled a lot of things, I deeply set many parts of the system: I can’t recommend my tweaks to other people.

I have learnt, never change a running System. Old and good wisdom…
