Very long boot process


The boot process (from the moment I press the power button until the login screen) is extremely long. I used to run Arch before, and it was much faster.

Now, it my computer manufacturer logo appears once, then disappears and appears again, and stays there for a while. I'm not sure what could be the issue or how I could debug this.


  • Dell Latitude e5450
  • Xfce
  • Kyria 19.0.2
  • Just installed today
  • UEFI

Let me know if you need more information.


Can we see the output of systemd-analyze blame


Here it is:
