I tried to bring an old laptop to life and installed Xubuntu 18.10. I noticed that the boot is quite long and look up on the Internet to see what could be the reason. So I did a systemd-analyze blame

Satellite-Pro-L350:~$ systemd-analyze blame

1min 30.059s gpu-manager.service

Are there updates that I'm missing? Drivers that are not up to date? I can't imagine that this is a normal boot. If you have any advice, please let me know what I can do. I don't want to have to use another distribution...

  • Please edit your question to include the complete output of systemd-analyze critical-chain which tells you specifically what is slowing boot. – user535733 Dec 27 '18 at 1:38
