|0005427||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2019-05-05 21:26||2019-05-13 08:59|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||2019.2|
|Summary||0005427: kali -light and -xfce 2019 w08-w19 live boot takes 6 minutes|
|Description||Since 2019 w08 kali -light and -xfce live boot takes 6 minutes|
Seems to work ok after boot.
Tried 4 laptops and 1 desktop, all stall.
Selecting text Install is fast, it does not stall.
After Install on HD kali works.
See attached image as to where the stall occurs.
Stall occurs at same place every time.
ONLY the xfce based DEs stall on live boot.
These kali DE live boot without stalling:
|Steps To Reproduce||download any kali weekly w08-w19 light or xfce|
burn to usb
try to live boot

The problem is that the "sudo" calls made by live-config (such as those made in the components/1170-xfce4-panel config script) are taking 3 minutes each to run. With "strace sudo", we managed to figure out that sudo is making some sort of dbus call and that it doesn't get any reply (it's sort of expected as dbus is not yet running). The dbus call is triggered by the systemd NSS module (libnss-systemd.so).
So a work around is to remove (temporarily) "systemd" from /etc/nssswitch.conf... but really it's libnss-systemd that should behave better during boot.
||I filed this for systemd developers: https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/12492|
||In the mean time, I'm trying to work around the issue in live-config 5.20190507~kali1 by disabling the systemd NSS module.|
||I confirm that the work-around works. systemd upstream seems to have acknowledged the problem, so hopefully it will be properly fixed at some point.|
