bootup chart

Description of problem:
Hi all,

with the upgrade to f19, I noticed that bootup takes considerably longer than before with f18. This is caused by a really slow start of Network Manager

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -qa systemd\*

How reproducible:
Every bootup

Comment 1 hannes 2013-06-07 10:29:37 EDT
Ok, then I need to add:
rpm -qa NetworkManager\*
Comment 2 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2013-06-07 10:43:40 EDT
Hm, the NetworkManager people are not omniscient... Please at least attach the output from 'journalctl -u NetworkManager -b'.

Comment 4 hannes 2013-06-07 10:49:08 EDT
Me neither, so I didn't know what they might need.
Comment 5 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2013-06-07 11:24:45 EDT
this is because of nm-wait-online is enabled by default ( in F18 it got enable by default in the network target I believe ) or pulled in by something and stalls everything else. There should be an bug about this already against nm
Comment 6 hannes 2013-06-08 01:16:45 EDT
I am not sure, if that's the reason, since this shows that the wait-online service is not enabled.

systemctl status NetworkManager-wait-online.service
NetworkManager-wait-online.service - Network Manager Wait Online
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager-wait-online.service; disabled)
   Active: inactive (dead)

The start process of NetworkManager.service, probably shows the delay in more detail:
systemctl status NetworkManager.service 
NetworkManager.service - Network Manager
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service; enabled)

Comment 8 hannes 2013-06-10 15:35:00 EDT
To me, this looks like a likely culprit:
Jun 08 06:37:26 caprica.localdomain NetworkManager[388]: <info> (wlan0): IP6 addrconf timed out or failed.
Comment 9 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2013-06-10 16:21:23 EDT
Well then there is /lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager-dispatcher.service

Which has Alias=dbus-org.freedesktop.nm-dispatcher.service

while the NM spec file has 


which contains nm_dispatcher.service with an underscore not "-" 

And that Alias= entry causes

"<warn> Dispatcher failed: (32) Unit dbus-org.freedesktop.nm-dispatcher.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status dbus-org.freedesktop.nm-dispatcher.service' for details."

since the dbus-org.freedesktop.nm-dispatcher.service ( with "-" ) does not exist ( while the one with underscore does )
Comment 10 hannes 2013-07-07 03:47:08 EDT
This issue is still not fixed, even with the packages from the other bug report. I do have severe delays during bootup and I have no idea, where to look.
Comment 11 hannes 2013-07-11 14:25:48 EDT
Apparently the latest update fixed it:
rpm -qa NetworkManager\*
