udev - Wait for Complete Device Initialization - drive that doesn't exist

Was working with an external drive connected via USB.

Since then, OpenSUSE is slow to boot, hanging for 90 seconds at a udev message regarding “Wait for Complete Device Initialization” searching for a drive UUID that no longer exists.

How to fix?

It is in your /ect/fstab?

No. That was the first thing I checked.

Although that was the first thing I checked, I checked it again on your suggestion. I spotted what I missed before; that there was a second entry for swap. I didn’t spot it the first time. I don’t know why YaST Partitioner added a second swap entry to fstab for the USB external drive, but that was the issue.

Well, you said “Was working with …”, which rather vague, so I have no idea what all you did.

Nice it is solved now!
