I have recently upgraded ubuntu and booting is really slow... (i'm running dual boot with windows 10).

I tried solutions posted previously : How to diagnose/fix very slow boot on Ubuntu 18.04

but it didn't work. Also tried to set : /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume with resume=none but it didn't work neither

Startup finished in 3.798s (firmware) + 13.346s (loader) + 5.547s (kernel) + 5min 37.536s (userspace) = 6min 229ms  graphical.target reached after 5min 37.513s in userspace

When looking boot.log it appears that something is happening when "A start job is running for Raise network interfaces"

[K[[0;1;31mFAILED[0m] Failed to start Raise network interfaces. See 'systemctl status networking.service' for details.

But i dont know how should i fix it. Any idea ?


If you are using Network Manager, try replacing it with Wicd. Reboot the system, uninstall network-manager, configure Wicd and enjoy.

  • Actually it worked, booting time is now around 2 mins... Do you know why ? – Melfos Dec 11 '18 at 20:17
  • No, I don't, I suppose that NM has some kind of bug in timeouts waiting for daemons responses. But I think that 2 minutes are still too much for boot, my system spends less than 8 seconds at boot. I think your system needs more tuning. – Luquino Dec 14 '18 at 1:18
