Post your booting time

Postby Lou » 2006-12-20 23:52

Now that i'm using Etch, it seems to me my box boots faster. I clocked it, and from beginning to end (inside the X system) it's 1 minute and 5 seconds, before was something like 1:24 .

I'm using Sarge, and it takes 45-50 seconds to get to the GDM login screen. However, I have some unused daemons running that I haven't yet got around to configuring (postgresql, exim, apache, etc.).

Using Etch and I can get to my Gnome desktop in just under a minute - that includes typing my username, password and "startx". The only faster boot time I've ever had was using the CRUX distro. Even Gentoo was way slower at boot.

I have been using Etch from the beginning. Thanks to a good advice from an experienced Knoppix user.

I use almost the same PC processing power as you Lou: PII clocking at 350mHZ and 128M RAM. From the debian grub boot to the login screen, it just took 45 seconds, at most 50 secs. Before, the PC was running Windows 98SE platform which took ages to boot up and very often crash and there were a lot of blue screens of death. Thankfully, since my first installation of Etch, I had ZERO crash and instability problems.

This is what i show enabled in sysvconfig:

apmd
exim4
fetchmail
firehol
killprocs
klogd
makedev
modutils
openbsd-inetd
rc.local
stop-bootlogd
sysklogd
umountfs
umountfs.sh
umountroot
urandom

I did not touch the ones that say 'Don't mess with this'

Is there something i can disable of this list?

firehol is my firewall if you're wondering.

From Grub to Desktop is about 40 seconds. ... auto-login thru gdm.

Unless you're actually running a mail server, you don't need exim4

I clocked it again, and it takes 48 secs to the login.

Hmm, i don't know much about this, but IIRC, you need something, be it Postfix, Exim, etc, and something to get it from there, like fetchmail, and then a mail app like mutt or t-bird, or whatever. Like i said i'm not an expert. What do you use? Do you get your mail without exim/postfix/sendmail what? or maybe sendmail does not apply here.

Can somebody clarify this?

On my AMD64 laptop, Etch goes from Grub to GDM in less than 30 seconds.

Very fast, faster than Ubuntu Dapper or Edgy on the same machine. This is a default install of Etch with the Desktop picked at time of install.

I could probably get the the times down if I start looking at what starts up, I did see a lot of daemons starting that I would probably not be using.

Etch/Sid.. heavily modified and one of the craziest things done (for example, I managed to rename the root account succesfully and everything works fine!)

Booting time is about 20 seconds... but if I boot with my Gamepad Configuration, it takes about 30 seconds..

Cheers

Client mail apps (mail user agents) like t-bird, sylpheed or evolution do not need mail systems at all to function. They use the smtp and pop servers provided by your ISP. I have been running Linux for 10 years and have been happily checking and sending my mail without sendmail, exim4, fetchmail, getmail, etc...
