slow startup: A start job is running for dev/isk/by-uuid/...<bunch of numbers/letters>

hi i have no idea what i did, but when i boot i get this message at the bottom of the loading screen, and it always takes 90 seconds to boot. from there my spinning wheel that says tumbleweed also takes a long time to boot.

your help i appreciated!
thanks ^^

Write down that bunch of numbers.

Then check whether that corresponds to anything. In particular see whether the numbers match anything in the output of

grep resume /etc/default/grub

or anything in “/etc/fstab”.

the swap uuid matches the one from booting…

heres what i found in boot.log

i can post more if you like

Hi
If you check the output (as root) user from the blkid` command I suspect you will find your swap partition has a different UUID than exists in /etc/fstab.

Also check what is in the output from cat /proc/cmdline as the wrong UUID could be there.

output from blkid…

**hp:~ #** blkid 
/dev/sdc2: BLOCK_SIZE="2048" UUID="2022-09-25-23-47-06-15" LABEL="openSUSE-Tumbleweed-NET-x86_6433" TYPE="iso9660" PARTUUID="529ffdf4-02"

/dev/sda2: UUID="6dfe8c16-c5d7-437c-a15b-1079259d4e14" UUID_SUB="6c028535-3d3a-4bf8-b0c6-db3d00487b30" BLOCK_SIZE="4096" TYPE="btrfs" PARTUUID="f6190

i don’t know how to tell which one is the swap…
(that first line is a usb)

outfrom from cmdline…

**hp:~ #** cat /proc/cmdline 
BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-5.19.10-1-default root=UUID=6dfe8c16-c5d7-437c-a15b-1079259d4e14 splash=silent mitigations=auto quiet security=apparmor nos

Hi
You need to boot from the installed system, not live/rerscue from install media. At grub press the e key to get to the grub edit menu, is there a resume= entry? If so delete it and press F10 to boot the installed system.

Once boot run those commands, perhaps you don’t have any swap… if so rem out the /etc/fstab entry, reboot, press the e again and system should come up, then can use YaST bootloader to remove the resume entry.

well editing out the swap line in the /fstab file worked and it booted right up!

thank you very much!

Hi
So, once booted if you run lsblk and the blkid command, do you see and swap mount point?

nope no swap on there.

Hi
OK, enjoy :slight_smile:

for future reference, when it says dependency failed, does that mean there isn’t a swap drive?

edit: like it says in…

Hi
Not necessarily, maybe a user formats it or dual boots and formats it and the UUID changes. I suspect you have a reasonable amount of RAM in your system? The blkid command will identify the partition (or lack of)… but when it says swap, then that will likely be the issue.

ok yes and im running 24gb of ram.

Yep. Use copy and paste to post as follows:

The above formatting helps checking consistency.
