    18 seconds seems like a very good time. What is the spec?

    hardy has the deb "readahead" installed by default. does that mean
    all the tweaking is not necessary anymore?

    This tweak works with the readahead package to see what *your* system uses at bootup, to gear the readahead sequence to your computer's needs.

    Re: TIP: Improve bootup speed by reprofiling bootup

    For some reason, gedit won't let me save the boot file after deleting its contents. It says, "You do not have the permissions necessary to save the file. Please check that you typed the location correctly and try again."

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Try running gedit with sudo.

    Instead of sudo you can use gksudo. gksudo is a GUI version sudo so that you can use it in a launcher and such without having to open a terminal for the password verification.

    You really should use gksudo to run graphical programs. Using sudo there could cause some nasty permissions issues. Use sudo for command line only apps.

    As in, drop to the terminal and key in

    gksudo gedit
    and then do the edit and it will save

    Thanks to all who helped: glotz, jdong, locke_99gs, and john nilsson; deleting the contents of 'boot' shaved a few seconds off boot up!
