I am using Fedora 21 KDE. The boot time is taking too long. This particular line is taking 1 min 30 sec (countdown).

A start job is running for dev-disk-by\x2duuid-eebb1720\x2d39be\x2d4a95\x2da358\x2d736a49a7677e.device

I am attaching the boot log file. Please help me what to do.

Looking over that log, I see that the device eventually times out and fails, followed by a statement that a Dependency failed for Swap, suggesting that it's your swap partition giving trouble. Please edit your question to include the contents of /etc/fstab and I'll take a look at it.

Thanks for your help, I have updated the question. (/etc/fstab)

From what I can see, the UUID for your swap partition isn't the same as that of the device that's timing out, and that device doesn't show up at all in fstab. Use the swapon command to find out what the status of your swap is, and put it here in a comment, so that you don't burn your only answer with it.

swapon: cannot find the device for UUID=eebb1720-39be-4a95-a358-736a49a7677e

OK, that means that the UUID in fstab is wrong, which is what I suspected. Comment out that line by putting # in front of it, save and reboot. You still won't have any swap, but at least you should boot faster. Once that's cleared up, we can work on getting that line corrected.

Well this solves the problem, thanks!! But does this mean that my swap partition is no longer used? So could I delete the partition?
