  • A better ideea than disabling the service is to remove the sleep time. To do this, open /etc/init/failsafe.conf with your favourite editor, and around line 25 you should see the following lines of code:

    # Plymouth errors should not stop the script because we *must* reach
    # the end of this script to avoid letting the system spin forever
    # waiting on it to start.
    $PLYMOUTH message –text=”Waiting for network configuration…” || :
    sleep 40
    $PLYMOUTH message –text=”Waiting up to 60 more seconds for network configuration…” || :
    sleep 59
    $PLYMOUTH message –text=”Booting system without full network configuration…” || :
    

    To solve your problem, just comment the sleep times (add '#' in front of the text). It should look like this:

    # Plymouth errors should not stop the script because we *must* reach
    # the end of this script to avoid letting the system spin forever
    # waiting on it to start.
    $PLYMOUTH message –text=”Waiting for network configuration…” || :
    #sleep 40
    $PLYMOUTH message –text=”Waiting up to 60 more seconds for network configuration…” || :
    #sleep 59
    $PLYMOUTH message –text=”Booting system without full network configuration…” || :
