Slow boot and sometimes never starts

I installed Pavho yesterday and the system boot is very slow (several minutes) or sometimes it just freezes. All I see is something like “root clean” when it stops.

Weirdly, if I edit the boot line and append 3 to the end and at the shell if I call startx it works perfectly fine. In fact, this is how I booted right now and typing this.

How do I go about debugging this?

Hello @alpha_centauri and welcome :wink:

Maybe start with this script:

Collect data and view:

curl -s "" | sh -s -- upload

Collect data, view and upload after closing with q:

curl -s "" | sh -s -- upload

It will collect a lot of information in one file for investigation… I use it myself to have quick searchable overview.
