Kubuntu 19.10

I deleted a different distro on the same disk as Kubuntu, it was before Kubuntu (i.e., to the left) and now I have a longer boot time. The perceived delay is after I see the Kubuntu logo. The system is i5 running on SSD with 8 Gb RAM.

Maybe something with fstab, and UUIDs that changed? I will post some info that might help

  • 65924102-c27b-4bd3-a0b6-e8667989fb8d is in fstab but not in list of partitons? I prefer to create mount points with name. And label any partitions I temporarily mount, so mounted by label not UUID. I do not know what is what with UUIDs. – oldfred Feb 11 at 19:01

    Good catch. Maybe the system is looking for a non-existent partition If I delete the line with 65924102-c27b-4bd3-a0b6-e8667989fb8d from fstab, will that fix it? – shmu Feb 11 at 19:45
  • It will help as it has to timeout looking for it. askubuntu.com/questions/1187117/… & askubuntu.com/questions/1018576/… – oldfred Feb 11 at 20:02

    I deleted the line but it still hangs at the Kubuntu logo. There must be a second place that I need to edit. – shmu Feb 11 at 20:26

    This fixed it: sudo update-initramfs -u – shmu Feb 11 at 22:47

The solution requires two steps.

  1. Remove from fstab the partition(s) that no longer exist. To do this, run blkid in the terminal. Then open /etc/fstab with root privileges and look for the UUID(s) that were not listed by blkid. Delete the line(s) that contain those UUID(s). Save and close.

  2. Run this command in terminal:

    sudo update-initramfs -u

That should fix it. AFAIK this second step is required only in the Ubuntu-type distros.
