    Re: Improve performance in Ubuntu

    I am running Xubuntu on a laptop with 128MB of RAM memory...
    It runs great.... the only thing i miss is a nice signal strenght indicator for my network connection that is installed with the GNOME desktop environment. I would always recommand giving xubuntu a try. I have it installed after i installed the regular GNOME Ubuntu, so i can choose to switch sessions. Picasa and other memory consuming apps run fine...

    all the best

    I don't know about anybody else, but compiz threw me into dependency hell. XGl, on the other hand, makes my system much, much faster as well as xfce (which I also installed after the normal ubuntu install, so I could switch sessions if necessary).

    Re: Improve performance in Ubuntu

    How can this thread be updated for edgy? What here is obsolete and what is still applicable. Is there anything that could be added now?

    By the way, this thread has been very valuable to me. Thanks!

    I think they all still apply. I haven't tried the XML optimizations though. I'm not sure that messing around with Init is really needed anymore either.

    Thanks for the suggestions and all the comments in this thread. I used the ati dapper wiki http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...apper_Manually to update my video driver, and am now using the kernel that is correct for my machine. The ubuntu community is AWESOME!

    Thank you for the suggestions in this thread.

    I'm currently trying to figure out how to use InitNG and hopefully, things will go smoothly.

    As far as I know, development on InitNG has stopped and Upstart is the better alternative, and it is implemented by default in Edgy and Feisty.

    Oohhh... all right, man!

    Still, I've only managed to shave off 10 seconds and my boot-time is around 1 minute. WindowsXP , in comparison, takes between 20 to 30 seconds only.
