Installed on my desktop. It runs fine, but, in general I have to say, that with kernel 3.18.x boot-up and shut-down times increased a lot

Code: Select all
[root@DESKTOP-1 andrea]# systemd-analyze
Startup finished in 53.043s (firmware) + 19.031s (loader) + 1.897s (kernel) + 51.006s (initrd) + 30.892s (userspace) = 2min 35.872s
[root@DESKTOP-1 andrea]# uname -a
Linux DESKTOP-1 3.18.5-nrjQL-desktop-1rosa #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Feb 1 20:57:49 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


Code: Select all
[root@DESKTOP-1 andrea]# uname -a
Linux DESKTOP-1 3.17.8-nrjQL-desktop-1rosa #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jan 12 19:33:01 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@DESKTOP-1 andrea]# systemd-analyze
Startup finished in 31min 29.272s (firmware) + 24.959s (loader) + 1.883s (kernel) + 7.529s (initrd) + 27.294s (userspace) = 32min 30.939s


Even if the systemd-analyze command with kernel 3.17.x adds that incredible and wrong amount of minutes to the total time, the times in seconds are correct.
Did anybody else notice a similar behavior?
