Bug ID: 1198668 Summary: Tumbleweed: Purge old kernels service block during boot Classification: openSUSE Product: openSUSE Tumbleweed Version: Current Hardware: Other OS: Other Status: NEW Severity: Normal Priority: P5 - None Component: Basesystem Assignee: firstname.lastname@example.org Reporter: email@example.com QA Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Found By: --- Blocker: ---
Sometimes "Purge old kernels" service does not run after booting, but during boot, which slows down boot:
$ LC_ALL=C journalctl -b 0 |grep -i purge Apr 20 08:16:01 dell5510 systemd: Starting Purge old kernels... Apr 20 08:16:02 dell5510 zypper: Preparing to purge obsolete kernels... Apr 20 08:17:09 dell5510 systemd: purge-kernels.service: Deactivated successfully. Apr 20 08:17:09 dell5510 systemd: Finished Purge old kernels. Apr 20 08:17:09 dell5510 systemd: purge-kernels.service: Consumed 53.594s CPU time.
It started few weeks ago, it does not happen every boot, but maybe once a week. But bothered me enough to report the problem.
