Just tried to install nvidia drivers 375.39 on Ubuntu 17.04. Those drivers are advertised as ‘Proprietary, tested’. The system is brand new. Before installing the proprietary drivers I was running the nouveau drivers. Average time to boot (from grub to lightDM) : about 5 sec (system on SSD). After installing Nvidia drivers 375.39, average time to boot : about 45 sec.
systemd-analyze blame tells me timesync.service is to blame (like 32 sec or so). I must say I don’t see the relation between timesync and nvidia but why not…
Is there something to do to fix it?
P.S. Also tested 340.102 : nightmare. The system doesn’t even boot.
