Terribly Slow on Mac Book Pro

Wed Jan 09, 2019 4:07 pm

Hello everyone,
I'm a new user of Linux and of Solus :)
I just reinstall all my computer by deleting all the files and install directly Solus on it.

Everything works fine, but i'm terribly dispointed about the rapidity of Solus, my computer is so slow even more than when its was Mac Os X !
I made all the update, but nothing change...

Here my Configuration :
GNOME 3.28.2
Mémoire 1,7 Go
Processeur Intel Core 2 DUo CPU P7550 2,66Ghz X 2
Size 240, GO

What can i do to speed up ?
Cheers

I take the time when its off until the asking of the password, it's take 1m07 secondes.
I will try this system https://lubuntu.net/ and test if its faster, i will give you the answer.

Having issues running it with a s instead of a z in analyze, where as systemd-analyze blame seem to work. :)

Here my systemd-analyze time

Startup finished in 34.303s (firmware) + 199ms (loader) + 1.466 (kernel) + 4.083s (initrd) + 13.518 (userspace) = 53.571s
graphical.target reached after 12.841s in userspace

It is normal ?

The firmware is the BIOS/UEFI of your machine.
There isn't much you can do about it but still make sure it is flashed to the latest version and there are maybe a few settings you can modify to speed up the boot.
Since you omitted the blame it is hard to say more about this as we can't see the details.
Of course systems running on a HDD, especially laptops are much slower than systems booting on a SSD drive.

You're definitely not going to see great boot times with that hardware.
