    Slow Boot, Reboot and Shutdown


    Hi Everyone,
    i am using Fedora 17 on HP laptop.
    i can boot into MS windows 7 in 10s.
    But booting into Fedora is very slow, takes almost 1 min.
    Shutdown and Reboot takes 4-5 mins.
    i tried checking with systemd-analyze
    and found:

    Code:
    [root@localhost reishi]# systemd-analyze
    Startup finished in 1712ms (kernel) + 6279ms (initramfs) + 52462ms (userspace) = 60454ms
    I am sure that my system is taking too much time. found few articles online but not sure what should i do?
    Please help me.
    Thanks in advanced

    Remove quiet and rhgb from kernel line in GRUB Menu and check where system is taking time during boot up.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I suspect it's gnome3. It's the slowest gnome ever.

    Also, Fedora is way out on the bleeding edge with the distro, using upstart and replacing everything that is pure and simple with extreme complexity. I hate trying to tinker with Fedora, and it's seems like they're trying to be the Mac of the Linux world. They don't want users peaking under the hood, they're trying to release a one-size-fits-all eye candy distro.

    Removing quiet and rhgb will remove Splash screen of GRUB and display booting process line by line. Check where machine takes time or pause for while during boot.

    this decreases boot time significantly. it pause for a while two or three times before displaying login screen after which usable desktop takes almost 10s.
    but reboot/shut-down still takes longer time and its irritating as normally you are about to leave when you shut-down.
    I will prefer to remove quiet and rhgb permanently. should i consider removing this and ramdisk, welcome grub message.
    i'm using dual boot with Win7. also i am not using encryptated system.

    thanks for help.

    Already found. but i am nearly sure that this will lead to a completely messed up system.
    i can consider few of these points, but not before a confirmation from this forum, after all, i have full faith.

    Quicker solution. Install Arch Linux or Slackware = way faster boot.
