    Intrepid boots in 10 seconds by default on my family system, and me with Better specs running hardy is slower!

    Family system: AMD 5000+ 2.6ghz X2 2gb 800mhz ram 500gb hdd ( 250+250gb).
    Boot time: 10 seconds

    My system: Intel E4500 3ghz 4gb 735mhz ram 320gb hdd (250gb + 80gb)
    Boot time: 45 seconds

    So I tried this out and had no luck with either the original post or the one with the new version, though I didn't try installing the new version.
    It kept stopping after saying Starting NFS common... and had a bunch of file system check errors. It looked like it was running through things more than once and erroring out.
    I ended up messing up my boot process a bit, but at least I got it working again.

    I upgraded to Jaunty, and found it to be faster on boot. I didn't install bootchart, it's a testing installation.
    Its /etc/event.d looks the same as Intrepid's, so it's not using Upstart like it's mentioned here.
    If I'm not being clear enough or giving you enough information, just ask

    So... Is there anyway to test upstart 0.5 through the relative safety of a PPA or idiot-proof walkthrough?

    What bluk posted is pretty good.
    Keep in mind that when messing with something like this, safe is definitely not a word to describe it.
    Ubuntu splits the Upstart package up into other packages that provide the rc scripts for upstart to run and the contents of the /etc/event.d (or /etc/init/jobs.d) that Upstart uses. I was able to package Upstart 0.5, but its contents conflicted with the other packages Ubuntu has for it. I'm not sure how to proceed, getting a package to build at all was a first for me.
    If you're really interested, you can go ahead and try it. I think I finally figured out where my problems were coming from and what was going on.
    If you run into something, start a thread in a support forum... I kind of forgot this is in the Community Cafe.

    I only ask because the latest upstart bzr had temporarily hosed my system.

    Now that Karmic is running Upstart 0.6, I wonder how we'll see the boot process change and improve...

    Would be nice if one of you could upload this depchart.py script - jdong's site seems to be gone.

    Files are there: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~uphacke...ck-tools/files

    Should have read the thread more carefully.
