I recently installed ubuntu 16.04 , after the installation seems like it takes more time to boot . On an average it takes 55 seconds to 1 minute . While checking the "dmesg" log I could see it gets hung at a particular place . I could understand it is somewhere related to network , but couldn't find solution online . I am copying the log below for reference . Please refer the screenshot also .

Note : But wifi and wired connections are working fine even though it takes long time while startup .

dmesg log :-

dmesg log screenshot

Good to see an immediate response , thanks . I tried to turn off IPv6 , but it doesn't seem to make a change the booting time . I followed the below steps to turn off ipv6 , correct if was wrong .

Steps followed to turn off ipv6 : - 1. Edited /etc/sysctl.conf by adding below 3 lines in the end net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1 2. sudo sysctl -p 3. Confirmed the value , cat /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6 as "1"

but it didn't make a change .

Bluetooth , I tried I turned off and turned on . It has got no problem it loads faster I guess .

My "Motherboard" manufacturer is Toshiba :-

root@shafeeq-Satellite-C850:/home/shafeeq# dmidecode --type baseboard

dmidecode 3.0

Getting SMBIOS data from sysfs. SMBIOS 2.7 present.

Handle 0x0002, DMI type 2, 16 bytes Base Board Information Manufacturer: TOSHIBA Product Name: Portable PC Version: MP Serial Number: 1 Asset Tag:
Features: Board is a hosting board Board is replaceable Location In Chassis:
Chassis Handle: 0x0003 Type: Motherboard Contained Object Handles: 0

Sorry for a delayed replay . Actually I have never upgraded my BIOS since I bought my laptop (Toshiba staellite c850-i0011). Meanwhile I tried re-installing ubuntu and checked the boot time again , but no luck . I found something something strange , ie with systemd-analyse utility we can see the total time it took for boot (I found it online) . But it doesn't sync with dmesg log , I mean dmesg shows somewhat close to the actual time it takes . I really don't know it is related to "Desktop environment(Unity)" or "systemd" . I tried installing arch linux for testing the boot time , even in that it takes more time(more than 1 min) when I install GUI(desktop env -gnome 3 ) . Please let me know if you want see any specific system log , I can pull out and get you for analysis . When I was using old versions of ubuntu it used to be super quick :( .

systemd-analyse used to give close to 26-30 secs , but actually it takes 55-60 secs .

    If not using IPv6 or bluetooth, you could turn those off. Is this a Gigabyte motherboard? IOMMU needs to be enabled in the BIOS. This problems seems to be exclusive to Gigabyte boards.

  • Thanks "chili555" for the response . I already tried to turn off the ipv6 and bluetooth , but no effect . My motherboard manufacturer looks like Toshiba . I've posted the details , kindly correct me if I am wrong . – Shafeeq Rahman May 12 '16 at 7:03
  • Do you have latest UEFI/BIOS from Toshiba? This user just installed in UEFI mode to same system. Toshiba laptop C850 Windows 7 with upgrade to 8 version - sudodus ubuntuforums.org/… – oldfred May 12 '16 at 14:42
