Long boot time involves start jobs

When I boot my desktop this comes on the screen:

*     ] A start job is running for dev-disk-by\x2duuid-8e11c9fa\x2d8aa8\x2d45ce\x2da3eb\x2dfe9ec5574c73.device (7s / 1min 30s)

This runs for the full 1 min and 30s.

         Starting File System Check on /dev/disk/by-uuid/47fb4eec-2898-496c-b294-4b281005a4cd...

the above uuid refers to /dev/sda9 where Tumbleweed is installed.

Any ideas as to what is causing those start jobs?

Still looking for your install media perhaps? This should be disabled after install.

Not a clean shutdown so it’s checking disks/partitions on boot…

Wicked can sometimes be slow…

I have been wondering about the install media. I just deleted it.

How do I insure a clean shutdown?

Wicked doesn’t seem to take very long. It is the other start job that lasts 1 min and 30 secs.

From a Desktop environment there should be a poweroff button?

From the command line as root user;

systemctl poweroff

Then I have been getting a clean shutdown because I have been using the shut down icon showing on the menu.

I have just noticed that before the start job begins there is a quick message that says “ushib (not sure of the spelling) can’t find an input interrupt point”. Could this be part of my problem or separate?

Just had a similar problem on Leap 42.3 and I tracked it down to hibernation files left on swap. As your swap partition has a different UUID from 8e11c9fa … I am guessing - because my problem was quite different from yours except that I encountered similar symptons - that a UUID has changed.

One more thought: in YaST>Bootloader>Kernel parameters, check that the UUID for resume matches your swap UUID. That was one of the changes I had to make to resolve the problem.

What does the output of the terminal command

systemd-analyze blame

look like it may give you a clue.
