    Default Can't get bootchart to work. Help!

    Hi.

    I installed bootchart just for fun, and maybe find out what the biggest contributor to the boot time was.

    Anyways, I installed it through Zen and it doesn't seem to work. I'm looking in /var/log after anything related to bootchart but I can't find anything. When I run bootchart in terminal it says:
    Code:
    torswin@Muninn:~> bootchart
    /var/log/bootchart.tgz not found
    and I get the same message when I run it as root.

    So what do I do wrong?
    If it's not broken, take it apart and then fix it!

    Did you view the README and INSTALL files?

    "Add a new boot loader entry and modify the kernel command line to
    include "init=/sbin/bootchartd". Example for GRUB (/boot/grub/menu.lst):

    title Bootchart logging
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.10 ro root=/dev/hda1 init=/sbin/bootchartd
    initrd /initrd-2.6.10.img

    Once the boot process completes (denoted by the existence of
    specific processes), the log files are packaged to /var/log/bootchart.tgz."
