could you help with my boot time. I´ve tried some solutions with no results, including:

  • nomodeset as grub boot option
  • kernel upgrade to 2.6.39

Here´s the image of bootchart

And here´s the dmesg & lsmod | grep tpm -at the end- output

if the answer does not work for you - please add the results of lsmod | grep tpm to your question. – fossfreedom Nov 2 '11 at 22:53

Your system is trying to load the driver for Trusted Platform Module chips but its not being able to do so. I am not sure about your current hardware, because there is no information on your question, but you can try to blacklist that module (its not loading anyways).

Edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf (sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf or similar using your fav text editor) and add the line blacklist tpm_tis.
