hi Folks,

I like to apologize for my English, first, I'm not a native speaker.

my question is this: I've installed Sparky, which I like, and is very fast and clean, but in needs 10-15 seconds minimum to run through the booting process. My System is a Thinkpad X220 with 8 GB RAM and a Samsung 830 SSD, so not the slowest one ;)

why does it need this time? the formely installed Win 10 prof. only needed 4 seconds. Okay, it doesn't really matter at all, but I find it astounishing. maybe the reason is my Grub?
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet resume=UUID=033013ee-ce1b-46c8-904d-69455649ee8a"

and whats about the UUID...?


Hi there!

Debian (sparky is based directly on debian) is not automatically optimized for use with SSD.

I would sugest to you to read this to understand better what sparky is and where to search for help:,4243

And this one for the optimization of your SSD install:

Try that and tell us if it worked. My mom's notebook was with a HD, and I tryied to just copy the system to the SSD, but that won't work well, as the SSD is not magnetic spin media, is a different thing, so after reinstalling and making all the optimizations, is now super fast.

If a partition no longer in existence is still listed in /etc/fstab, grub will take extra time trying to find it. 


Also to see what is the hold-up for time

"systemd-analyze blame"

If you used LVM - this won't work.  But to view all your uuids  for a more common install -  as root or using sudo
(as root)  "blkid"
"sudo blkid"
Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.

thanks to all :)

okay, then i have to check the fstab first to see whats in it. after that "blkid".
but as i wrote it is not really a big problem
