    Default systemd on openSUSE 11.4 not responding as expected

    As the topic already states...
    I've installed systemd (first from 11.4 repo, now from factory) on openSUSE 11.4 on two of my machines. Everything seems to be working fine. I haven't switched permanently, instead i'm booting with 'init=/bin/systemd'.

    Shutdown is fast as hell, I can tell you that. Booting is rather very slow. Well... not really. It seems to pause for a minute after systemd fsck. Then harddiskactivity stops for over a minute and then continues with the rest.
    If i don't calculate the pause, it comes down to a slightly faster boot time than when using sysvinit. So i guess there must be something wrong with systemd or my setup.

    Can someone help me in finding what might cause the pause. Or is it normal in this stage of development?

    I have seen different versions run faster and then slower. As this is a project in heavy development.

    The best thing I can recommend is to keep downloading the latest version and submit your findings on the factory mailing list.

    First - boot with sysvinit, then:

    Uninstall all systemd packages like it's explained on http://
    en.opensuse.org/SDB:Systemd

    rpm -e --nodeps systemd systemd-sysvinit

    then make sure that you don't have any files in /etc/systemd or /lib/
    systemd

    If you do - delete those

    Now reinstall the latest systemd package(s) from factory.

    Does that help?

    I've seen "upgrading" systemd packages perform very badly on my box too.

    Quote SDB:Systemd

    Please uninstall all earlier versions of systemd and systemd-sysvinit
    before installing or updating new packages. Some needed logic inside the
    rpm runs only at the first installation of systemd.

    First of all... thanks for the reply. Systemd doesn't seems to be very popular among the openSUSE forum people here.

    Anyway.. I've tried the thing you suggested and it's slightly better. The pause remains, but shorter. Let us say a few seconds less.

    I've decided to let systemd for what it is. openSUSE 11.4 wasn't released with it, so i guess they made that decision based on facts that it wasn't ready yet.
    I'm curious if next released version will have it as default init.

    Let us hope because the project sounds promising.
