Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

Hi everyone.

I'm recently having some issues with some console apps. It takes ~45-60 seconds to Midnight Commander to start and ~60 seconds to w3m to load simple websites like google.com. X Server is working fine. I mean, applications with graphical interface are working right. The issues are with console apps as I said. Not all console apps load slowly, htop, for example, is working all right.

I'm not sure if this is related but I'm also getting this message at the system startup:

[FAILED]Failed to start Load Kernel Modules
See "systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service" for details.
[      5.994847] system[1]: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.

systemctl status system-modules-load.service:

I can't find any sign of bad activity in htop. Also, system updates (pacman -Syu) run very very slow or do not complete at all. Last days, I'm having to delete the "lock file" in order to use pacman (/var/lib/pacman/). I'm a newbie and I don't know what can it be or what else can do. It all starts to happen when I did almost all recommended in the articles:

System maintenance and  Improving database access speeds

Also installed wget.

Finally this message started to appear whe I shutdown my laptop:

A stop job is running for Network Time Synchronization (9s/1min 31s)

Thank you very much for your help.

Re: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

Let's start with a sanity check.  What are the output of uname -a and of pacman -Qi linux   ?

Re: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

That looks fine. Do you have the virtualbox modules installed? Maybe you uninstalled them but didn't remove the modules-load.d entry?

Thanks. Yes, I installed virtualbox, then I decided to remove it. I looked into this three directories:

/etc/modules-load.d/*.conf (there is a file virtualbox.conf but I'm not sure if it is ok to delete it or only comment the content)

/run/modules-load.d/*.conf (does not exist)

/usr/lib/modules-load.d/*.conf (Nothing in this folder)

Re: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

Ok I commented the content of that file and the "Failed to start Load Kernel Modules" error is gone. Now "systemctl status system-modules-load.service" is clean. The issue with some console applications continues. I think it was not related to that error. mc is loading 1 minute after I write the command and websites are loading very very slow in w3m.

Re: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

I'm assuming you created that file based on https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Vi … el_modules ?

If you created it, you can remove it.

Ok. I removed it and did a "sudo reboot"  and after that, mc loaded in less that a second. Then I closed it and when I tried to start it again, it took 40 seconds to load. w3m isn't working neither.

Re: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

check the journal, see if there are any clues in there.

Re: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

I fell sleep reading the journal. Then, I re-started the system and it seems like the issue with the console apps is also gone. Finally, I did a system update (-Syu) and it was completed in a few seconds. Before erasing the file it never completed the first step. mc is loading fine and w3m is loading websites as always.
This message still showing when I shutdown my laptop:

A stop job is running for Network Time Synchronization (9s/1min 31s)

I think it could be related to the only anormal thing that I could find in the journal: MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC

Thank you very much for your help.

Note: Sorry I forgot to mention that also removed wget and commented the corresponding lines in pacman.conf. I needed it to do system updates and install packages via proxy. I'll try again later with a different approach in case it was the source of problems.
