Slow log in process

Hi there,
I am a long time window user and switched to Linux 3-4 months back. After a decent amount of distro hopping I settled for Garuda Dragonised. But now the log in process takes longer as compared to the earlier days and the system does not respond for few good moments after login. Oh yes, I updated my system recently too.
I have a 12 GB RAM and a 256 GB dedicated SSD for the OS. I kind of hate the slowness of the system and don't want to switch either. Any help is welcome.

Thanks for your reply. I will do it soon.

Search the forum for "install alternate kernels".

Hi Nilesh1,

welcome to the forum.

You could try disabling auto-cpufreq, this sometimes helps:

sudo systemctl stop auto-cpufreq
sudo systemctl disable auto-cpufreq

BTW, OT :slight_smile:

Just use

systemctl disable --now auto-cpufreq

One line, one password input, if needed systemctl ask fore.
