Sorry, not done yet.

Few need it. Everybody wants it. I'm speaking of faster boot times, of course. Like many linux enthusiasts, I have spent hours tweaking my system for quicker boot times that over the course of a year have will probably save me a total of, oh, say, 20 minutes of waiting time.

I haven't gotten around to writing this section yet (Perhaps because I've wasted so much time trying to decrease bootup by another 2 seconds.) In the meantime, try googling for these terms together with the words "linux boot speed"

  • profile
  • profiling
  • readahead
  • preload
  • prelink
  • concurrency

Here are some tips that worked for me, courtesy of the Sysadmin's Journey.
