It takes more than a minute for Ubuntu to boot up on my new laptop. I have Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.10 installed using Wubi.
From dmesg, I see the following:
[ 2.934384] EXT3-fs (loop0): recovery required on readonly filesystem [ 2.934387] EXT3-fs (loop0): write access will be enabled during recovery [ 23.804784] kjournald starting. Commit interval 5 seconds [ 23.871524] EXT3-fs (loop0): recovery complete [ 23.871526] EXT3-fs (loop0): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode [ 45.069369] Adding 262140k swap on /host/ubuntu/disks/swap.disk. Priority:-1 extents:1 across:262140k
Note the big time gap between the entries. You might ask whether I put my computer to a unclean shutdown because of the filesystem recovery, but I just shut it down gracefully using the system menu.
How can I improve the boot time?
