Did anyone else notice a sudden increase in booting time after a recent update (maybe, 2 or 3 weeks ago) in Ubuntu 14.04. After showing the Ubuntu logo, there is a black screen that takes a lot of time to finish. After that, Ubuntu loads the desktop and everything runs as usual.
This is happening in a laptop Dell Inspiron 1545 (Pentium 2GHz and 8GB RAM).
I have installed bootchart and this is the image produced:
If I'm reading the output correctly, it takes 1 minute and 28 seconds to load.
I'm almost certain that I haven't installed anything recently. Does anyone know what could be the cause?
It takes 55 seconds to show the black screen and lasts 43 seconds until the desktop appears. A few seconds before that, it is possible to move the cursor. It looks similar to the interval with low CPU use in the upper graph from the bootchart output.
