I changed the [[Automatic_login_to_virtual_console#With_systemd|#With systemd]] section's service {{ic|Type}} to {{ic|simple}} (the default) to drastically speed up the boot. I went from 12.4 seconds to 7.2 once I figured out what it was.

And no, this is not a hack to simply skip all the other stuff you'd wanna boot with. Even the default display manager services and the (unrecommended) [[Systemd#Using_service_file|xinit method]] were much faster, which is why I started to look for what was wrong with this (_recommended_) one. --[[User:Det|Det]] ([[User talk:Det|talk]]) 21:31, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

:Using this command should result in the system shutting down if only 1 user is currently logged in, but combined with this method for automatically logging in, it will refuse with {{ic|"Failed to issue method call: Access denied"}}. The {{ic|journalctl}} log files get butchered on my system so all I can see is something about dbus getting rejected. --[[User:Earnest|Earnest]] ([[User talk:Earnest|talk]]) 22:34, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Killing X

I don't have any problems with X automatically restarting after I kill it. I have autologin configured and then I start X using startx. Maybe this user is running a graphical display manager or a default target of graphical.target?
