    So far I’ve not been able to resolve all of the issues involved with Linux Mint 19 Tara extremely slow boot up problem. I have shut down many of the start up items and done a few other odds and ends as suggested by forums etc.

    Originally boot time was roughly 13 minutes, it is now a shade over 6 minutes, which is an improvement but still IMOP unacceptable. Having run Mint 17 for about 3 years on 2 systems (not dual boot) I became spoiled with the performance of that OS.

    One of my systems remains 17 and will stay as such until I can figure out how to make 19 Tara more functional. I’ve read and tried fixes for this issue for over a week now and am still scratching my head over this one, since I love Linux I will not give up, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Entering emergency mode.Exit the shell to continue. Type “journalctl” to view system logs. You might want to save “/run/immigrants/rdsosreport.txt” to a USB stick or /boot after mounting them and attach it to a bug report.

    Installed mint two weeks ago been running fine, then today it will not accept my login password, as it comes up with unable to launch “cinnamon – session – cinnamon X session – – – ” cinnamon – session – cinnamon” not found; falling back to default session.

    So after clicking on okay all i get is blank screen with a mouse pointer and nothing happens, tried rebooting 4 times with same result, so have now reinstalled just so I can send this to see if I can get help.
