    Optimize Ubuntu 8.04 for Speed - Speed up Hardy Heron!

    If HH is fast enough in your system dont tell me. this is for users whose HH system is slow.

    So what if Ubuntu is a fast operating system?... There is always room for some more tweaking... and I am talking here about some aspects that are NOT useful for the end-users (yes YOU, the regular Ubuntu user). The hacks presented in this guide will greatly improve the overall performance of your Ubuntu 8.04 Linux OS.

    WARNING: Please follow the instructions below very carefully, in the order in which they are listed and reboot your machine after each one. It is also possible to do them all at once, but rebooting after each one is much safer. Why? Because if your system won't work properly at a certain point of the tutorial, you'll know what's the last thing you did and you can revert back to the initial configuration. I've applied all these tweaks on three (3) different configurations (with SATA and IDE hard drives) with success!

    This one will have it.

    thanks, but hardy is already fast enough for me (even on my old pc with 256mb ram)

    It seems some of the steps are breaking peoples installs.

    So use caution.

    Most of the article seems to be about a faster boot up time.

    Not something I'm interested in.

    Nice article. There are a lot more things you can do to improve Hardy's speed though.

    An apology for the shameless self-promotion there.

    By the way, that /etc/fstab adjustment puts noatime and nodiratime together on the drive assignment line, but picking noatime includes nodiratime, so it isn't needed. Just thought I should mention it. ...

    "http://news.softpedia.com/news/Optimize-Ubuntu-8-04-for-Speed-86405.shtml"

    sysv-rc-conf is much better at configuring services than Ubuntu's services menu. Also, I would backup each file before altering it; and where it says to use "sudo gedit ...", you should use "gksudo gedit ..." instead.

    By gksudo he means gksu. This is the proper command... and the only difference between gksu and sudo is that sudo prompts for password in the terminal and gksu prompts in the GUI.

    Do these modifications make the ENTIRE system faster or just the boot up? I'm finding that I boot just fine but programs (even gedit) take a bit of time to load.

    Laptop - Toshiba Satellite A135 Intel CeleronM 1.6ghz, 512mb RAM, 80gb HDD Running 9.04

    Because the Laptop won't accept any upgrade...
