Fun With Linux: bootchart

It is another day where I have a little adventure with my new toy, my eeepc 1000h. What I don't satisfied is the boot time, I got around 40 second on ubuntu on ubuntu using the adam's kernel.

So before to optimize, we need to investigate.

Bootchart is a way to show the boot process, in the end of the boot, you will get a chart, that shows the process.

To install on ubuntu

sudo apt-get install bootchart
The chart generated from the boot process, is stored in /var/log/bootchart. It is a png image.

So the result that I get, from my setup

It is one thing to know, now, how to optimise it?

    my way of booting linux faster is a little drastic.
    I turned off the usplash, run the booting in concurrency='shell', deactivate useless things to reduce boot time e.g. bluetooth, cron, apm, reduce the ttyl sessions loaded.
    one easy way is to install bootup-mananger.
    anyways, congrats on your purchase of the netbook.
