How to get into LXDE even faster

Post by themagicm »

I am trying to get into X on my PI4 as quick as possible (trying to load a GUI app as soon as LXDE starts).
Right now I am at 17 seconds and LXDE is available. I think there is a delay between NTPD (disabled) and getting to DietPi-boot. There is about 5-7 seconds of doing (?) something.

Anything else I can do to cut this boot time down?

many thanks for your report. You could have a look to journalctl to see what happen during boot and where time is lost. As well you could create a cool graph to visualise the entire boot process

Code: Select all

systemd-analyze plot > graph.svg
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
