waiting for resume device

leave a comment »

on my desktop machine, i see (from the logs and bootchart) that the boot process freezes for 5 secs (no cpu or disk activity) with the message “waiting for resume device” right after /scripts/local-premount

i found out that the script /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/local-premount/resume is looking for the swap partition that is indicated in /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume, which contains the uuid of my old swap partition (i have no swap partition now…)

commenting out the only line in that file, and then running sudo update-initramfs -u fixed the problem
