    Ubuntu is fast enough for me, but I did once speed up windows ME by doing a yoga course and slowing down my heartbeat!

    Question Re: Prelinking Guide- Make Ubuntu Feel Faster

    Just tried to get prelink & apt reported--

    dean@Dual1:~$ sudo apt-get install prelink
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    Package prelink is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source


    Anyone have any ideas??

    It is rather important, especially if you are upgrading core system files (you want to make sure the right files are being used). If you don't have anacron installed, the midnight prelink run never gets done, if you turn the pc off before midnight.

    You must be running running apt-get a lot. If you are tracking say dapper, I probally would not be prelinking my system, I'd only do it on a relatively unchanging system.

    I don't get why you only have the deb-src here, try adding the deb too and see how it works

    I don't usually turn my PC off at night - I'll google for anacron but how can I make sure that it is running every day at midnight??

    Yeah, I tend to install new applications as I find out about them. It depends really.

    Cool Re: Prelinking Guide- Make Ubuntu Feel Faster

    Re-tried apt-get after I posted--pulled it just fine--don't know why I had the prob the first time --let prelink do it's thing & went to bed--all was good this morning ---I leave the system up 24/7, so I'll post any items of interest--most large apps load 5/15 sec faster

    Thanks!!
