My system takes ages to boot, especially to log in. I'm not sure how I should go about the problem - I can't use Ubuntu like that.
Here are the relevant parts from

The latter is the driver of my Wirelesss stick, the Edimax EW-7811Un running on RTL8188Cu. The driver isn't original, I had to manually install it and replace the original one in order for the stick to work properly.
Here's my systemd plot:
Time my system needs for startup, measured with a phone:
- 30s for bootup, as indicated in the bootchart
- 2 minutes 10 seconds for login and opening of terminal using Ctrl+Alt+T
Maybe there is a problem with my harddrive - or my
/homepartition specifically. When logging in, Ubuntu behaves as if the loading process was very slow: I first see my background for a long time, then unity appears but is unreactive for a bit - then my launcher takes a while to load and finally the first application I launch takes a while as well. After that everything works with quite a decent speed though, as if it cached the files - I don't know enough about Linux to speculate about that though. Notice that the mounting of my
/home-partition takes up most of the time of the booting process by far.
About my file system: My
rootis an 500GB
Ext4partition. I then have a sepearte
NTSFpartition on the same harddrive for the
Swapare all on the same harddrive.
- I created a new account to see if it takes a long time to log in as well. It doesn't. Neither does logging in from the virtual terminals.
- Resetting unity using
dconf reset -f /org/compizand then
setsid unitydoesn't change anything either.
