I didn't keep my booting time. Sometime I am restarting and when I restart mta isn't appear as normal boot. So it takes shorter than 1 minutes. Mta is making long booting.

My processor is 2,66 celeron :( ( I wish amd 64)
256 ram
256 winfast
epox mainboard ( sis my mainboard and there isn't update at epox website any more. I have to upgrade my system as fast as possible )

debian etch - default install of desktop/standard/laptop tasks
nothing tweaked except maybe a couple applets I killed
hp omnibook 6000 laptop
PIII 700mhz
256mb ram

from post to GDM login - about 35-40sec
(could probably be tweaked and cleaned up a bit and get it even lower)

from gdm login to gnome desktop - about 15sec

Aye, fight and you may fail, sellout, and you may live, a while. And dying in your MScash beds, you'll be willin' to trade ALL the cash, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may FUD our customers, but they'll never take...OUR FREEDOM!

this morning I was preparing to come and decided to learn my booting time. This is my chance . Linux started to file system check. But I didn't give up. From grub to gdm it took 1, 35 second :lol: from grub to completely log in took 1,56 second. :lol:
amazing . isn't it?

Grub -> Full GNOME desktop: 1 minute exactly

On a 1GHz Duron with 350MB RAM. Once loaded, the desktop only utilises 45MB RAM (Full GNOME. Why does the clock applet use nearly 10MB?!). It's a work in progress, I hope to get it faster and lighter.

etch. i setup kdm autologin and the grub menu is a 3 second timeout. from the front panel power switch to wallpaper is 52 seconds. that includes preloading 2 instances of konqueror, no exim, and 4 vmware demons. no ntp.

personally, i don't mind waiting a little for it to boot. i wouldn't care if it took 3 minutes to boot. as long as it runs as well as it does after it's up.

from xfve I reboot, it takes 26 seconds to shutdown I see BIOS post at 30 seconds, Grub splash shows up at 46 seconds( it's still looking for grub on the floppy), kernel finishes loading at a minute 20 seconds, I'm back in the desktop at 1 minute 42 seconds after entering my user and pass.
I'll take that for a default desktop install :wink:

Including the BIOS and GRUB screen: 27 seconds
Without the BIOS and GRUB screen: 17 seconds

Pretty good times in my opinion, I've never gotten an operating system to boot as fast as Debian does. All I have left to do is recompile my own kernel, and build the ipw3945 modules into it for maximum boot speed.

I no longer use a display manager so I don't have any times for that. I just tend to use startx instead.
