[SOLVED] Fast startup into SDDM when I press a key or touch the pad

Hello everyone, I noticed a weird issue in the last month.

When I turn on my laptop and I don't touch nothing, it takes several seconds to get into display manager screen; the cursor keeps blinking and nothing happens, it can take up to 30 seconds after systemd writes on screen grafical target is reached. But if I press a key or touch the touchpad, the cursor stops blinking and I get into SDDM after few seconds, usually 3-5 seconds.

What's the meaning of this? I don't think it's a systemd issue: from "systemd-analyze critical-chain" I see that graphical.target is reached after 3.362 seconds. So why does it takes so many seconds to get into SDDM unless I interact with input hardware?

I tried to downgrade the kernel, but nothing changed. I don't know how I can debug this issue. Can you suggest me some tips?

Thanks.

It's probably the recent issue concerning a lack of entropy.
Try installing and enabling haveged.

No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan
