Am I looking at a problem with my machine? my Leap Install?, Plasma?, or ??? who knows? https://susepaste.org/13993452
This is an image of a popup I get on occasion(seems like every week for a few weeks now). It happens after the desktop is displayed, and after the network connection is made.
This time it was for ‘/home’, but the other times it was for ‘/’
IS it indicative of file systems starting to corrupt, or something in the system needing fixed. I see it has Plasma on the popup.
Sorry, but I couldn’t catch it as it happened. The image was in the notifications, so I tweaked it for posting here.
I suspect it’s just a warning and not a serious error that during bootup, for whatever reason the particular partition wasn’t mounted on time. If you have access when you login, then it’s non-critical.
Something is delaying your filesystem mount.
If you use your machine daily and you’ve been upgrading your system for maybe 4 or more years, have you defragmented your files? Although modern filesystems say they don’t have to be defragged, I’ve found that performance is always improved if there is extreme file fragmentation.
File fragmentation happens as a combination of
How full your partition/filesystem is
Amount of write activity
Sizes of individual files, particularly often used files
How long it has been since last defragged or initial system install.
There are probably more factors but I’ve found that you’re likely going to see a problem build up if your filesystem usage > 60% and becoming more extreme quickly the less free space there is, using the machine continuously to modify/create new files, enormous files like virtual disk files and after 4 or more years (but can be weeks if your system is already under extreme resource starvation).
Highly fragmented files = High latencies reading files = Slow performance which might be cause of things like slow mounts, slow opening files, etc.
That was my thread, and I ‘think’ it may be the same or very similar problem.
That pop up comes on top of the network connection pop up.
it is just disturbing that it has started recently( I don’t remember how long back).
During post up, I do see a whale of of a lot of ‘apparmor-parser’ messages and they seem to be getting more and more weekly.
Probably my imagination, but both laptops hardly have any of the ‘apparmor-parser’ lines.
I may do a drastic thing, and stick the install USB back in and do a ‘fix’ or an upgrade.
