View Full Version : [ubuntu] Boot time optimization

August 19th, 2009, 08:57 AM

I'm currently using a straight Ubuntu 9.04 in a CarPC to use work related applications in a car.

The problem I've so far is the boot time. Nearly 5s for BIOS + GRUB, then the whole Ubuntu boot, the GDM*with autologin, then loading the application.

The first thing I*did was do ditch GNOME for fluxwm, as I'm only using a fullscreen application anyway.

What can I do to reduce more the time of the boot ? (and ideally, replace the Ubuntu usplash by the logo of the company ;-) )

Thanks in advance
