Summary0007486: Kali is slow to boot after dist-upgrade
DescriptionAfter I upgraded my kali linux distro to version 2021.4, I noticed that my system took too long to boot, and after logging in, it took about 10 - 15 minutes to load.

After running the dmesg command, I also noticed a recurring error. The following is the output of the command

This is a known bug on kernel 5.14.16 that is reported on Debian as well and affects amdgpu, same issue was reported by me and still happens if try to upgrade the kernel, so I'm using the old one instead for now.

The issue https://bugs.kali.org/view.php?id=7445 was solved with the latest kernel. Does the new version fix the issue for you?

Yup, updated right away... now everything is back to normal on 5.15.... I understand that issues are inevitable at some point but I wish for KALI team to test future releases more thoroughly on compatibility.

We don't have the manpower nor the required hardware to test this issues. For kernel packages we rely and depend on debian, so there's not much we can do
