Thread: OpenSUSE 12.3 (Update: sg3_utils, openSUSE-2013-683) - seems to be causing long boot times (5min)

  1. #1

    Default OpenSUSE 12.3 (Update: sg3_utils, openSUSE-2013-683) - seems to be causing long boot times (5min)

    After applying this update on my system boot times increased to about 5 minutes.
    My next step was installing new fresh installation of OpenSUSE 12.3 x86_64 and after some investigation I found that this boot time increase seems to be caused by sg3_utils update (I tried to install just this update on fresh system). After downgrade system boots fast again.
    Another thing pointing at this update is /var/log/messages where appeared lot of "timeout" messages like:

    2013-09-12T19:23:59.020158+02:00 linux-jp02 systemd-udevd[371]: timeout '/usr/bin/sg_inq -p di --export /dev/sdd'
    Here is "/var/log/messages" filtered with "cat messages | grep timeout":
    Code:

    With that info you can report the issue in bugzilla.

    In short: The problem was solved for me simply by downgrading the software "sg3" from version "sg3_utils 1.33-5.4.1-x86_64" to "sg3_utils 1.33-5.1.1-x86_64".

    You may do so using Yast:
    -start yast-> software
    - search "sg3",
    - mark "sg3-utils",
    - click on "versions" and choose the older one from above ("5.1.1"),
    - click "Accept" (the buttons might be named different, as I had to retranslate my localized version).

    Afterward, I re-started yast, re-searched "sg3" and changed "sg3-utils" to "permanent - do not upgrade" (or similar)
    It might be a good idea to check somewhen, if there is a working new version of sg3 - up to 29.10.2013, I would say - not yet.

    Thanks to deluxef - i was getting really upset until I found your simple solution!

    I have added some tools for systemd to check boot times to my SysCmd bash script you can find here: https://forums.opensuse.org/blogs/jd...ion-1-0-0-138/

    Hi all,

    I would like to know, whether it is adviced to upgrade to a more actual sg3_utils version than the one mentioned above yet? Was it successful for anybody, that had the above problem previously? (which version is ok?)

    Thanks for your answer - I would like to avoid the problems having had before .
