    Phoronix: Ubuntu Acknowledges Boot Speed Problem

    Developers at the Ubuntu Developer Summit have acknowledged the boot speed problem in Ubuntu 11.10 and are looking to improve the time it takes to boot Ubuntu Linux for the 12.04 release...

    Canines are awesome, so EXT4 is awesome too?

    I'm looking forward to BTRFS to prevent bit rot and keep my data pristine and flawless.

    How will encrypted root partitions be mounted if there's no initrd (and therefore, no cryptsetup)? Or can the initrd be generated manually?

    I guess that's one way of handling the power regressions: add a bigger problem and promise you'll fix it, hoping people will forget about the former. I know, power regressions are not Ubuntu's fault, but as one of the bigger distros based on the Linux kernel, there's nothing stopping them from lending a hand and/or providing a bit of feedback every now and then.

    @DaemonFC: I have also used XFS trouble-free. But then I messed up the FAT and found out that there's a very thin selection of recovery software for XFS. Now I use XFS on the system partition and EXT on /home.

    Its like the flicker free boot, was it necessary for anyone or anything? Does the flicker damage the monitor? If thats the case then why do I have a few CRTs with more then a decade of service still being used with no perceptible wear? If it's damaging to LCDs it must only effect craptacular models since my 5 year old Samsung LCDs have yet to fail me and the screen in my 2002 iBook still looks as good as the day I bought it.
    I'm pretty certain it isn't a question of hardware damage, it is a question of polish, and fit and finish.

    FTFY

    I haven't tested my boot speeds with and without an initrd on my Gentoo system, but I can say that a kernel with OpenRC boots just as fast, if not slightly faster than kernel/initrd with Upstart.

    When I tested out Exherbo, a kernel with systemd definitely boots slightly faster than any other distribution I tried out (except for distributions that specifically concentrate on boot speeds), although that's not a fair comparison since it was built from scratch and didn't have as many services running than a default Ubuntu installation.

    Switching over to a kernel without an initrd will help, but not by a whole lot. A kernel with no initrd with systemd will probably help the most.

    Any chance we can get some charts looking at boot times of some of the other major distros over the past few releases?

    Well, I guess they should just get rid of upstart and start using systemd like everybody else.
