I’m experiencing a problem with my leap 15.2. When I switch on my laptop, all the boot procedure goes well but it take quite long time (approx 5 minutes) to display the login mask.
This problem has arisen recently :’(
Do you have a solution?
Question: if I reinstall leap 15.2 over the same distro, I will lose my data or the installation will preserve them?
That depends on how the partition scheme on your disk – if you have a separate partition for the user directories then, you can re-install with whatever is needed regarding the system partition.
If however, the user directories are located included in the system partition, you can only overwrite the system files in that partition – you can not perform a “clean” re-installation including re-formatting and possibly re-sizing the system partition.
[HR][/HR]Can you please tell us which file-system or, file-systems, you’re using on the Laptop’s disk?
Does the Laptop have UEFI or, is it an older BIOS-only device?
I assume you looked at what happens using the Esc key. When it really stands still for 5 mins, then you must be able to write down the last few lines before the stand still, and maybe even the first line after it runs again.
The system partition on the Laptop seems to have a Btrfs file system.
It’s a Laptop – therefore absolutely no need to have the Network Manager’s “wait until we’re on-line” service enabled – if it’s being done properly, and there’s a WLAN involved, the network connection first happens when the user logs in …
Please check what “btrfs filesystem df /
” is indicating – the system partition (with a Btrfs file system) may well have a free space issue … 1. Even if some space seems to be available, do some Btrfs system partition housekeeping:
Drop the system into the systemd Rescue mode: “systemctl rescue” – user “root” from a VT (tty1 … tty6) – log everyone out beforehand …
After typing in the password of the user “root”, execute, one after the other, and check that each housekeeping task has completed before beginning the next one:
