I'm not exactly sure who the culprit is right now, probably because I have too many moving parts. I'm doing this on brand new hardware, brand new computer. (Not that it can't be a hardware issue, even if it is new.)
Once in a while my computer freezes. I'm not that worried about that, it just wants to be rebooted. It's not a headless box, so rebooting it once a month isn't that big of a deal. What I do find peculiar, is that when it boots after a forced reset, it seems to hang.
I get the Ubuntu splash screen, when I hit escape, I get the mounting
/dev/sda1, clean, and it just stays there for what seemed like 3-4 minutes...maybe even 5 minutes before it continued booting.
- UEFI? I'm sure I'm not the only one using this. I figure ubuntu has this down pat by now.
- SSD drive? boot drive is a SSD drive that might be mismanaged by the OS?
- Raid partition? I have a raid 5 setup across 3 drives, with XFS that mounts on boot. Still, even if some sort of error checks is forced. 5 minute delay with no visual output saying it's doing a fs check is odd.
I'd like to debug this.. since it's really bugging me. Has anyone had this behavior before? (Also, I just barely noticed that the computer wasn't busted. I have trigger happy fingers and I think I reset it 3-4 times before I noticed that if you wait long enough it eventually finishes booting )
Any thoughts? I'm going to disable the raid for now, see if that makes a difference.
