    Hi,

    there is some package for preloading already installed which prepares preload as a daily cronjob. I don't know which applications profits from this, if it really works and how much the speed improvements are compared to application start without preload.

    Hope this helps

    Hi,

    maybe SUPER preloading - openSUSE this is what you are searching for. You might also find Re: [opensuse] Preload HowTo interesting.

    Hope this helps

    Hi,

    no they aren't dead. Look at the contents of the preload package:
    Code:
    /etc/cron.daily/suse.de-update-preload                                    
    /etc/init.d/boot.blktrace                                                 
    /etc/init.d/earlyxdm                                                      
    /etc/init.d/stopblktrace                                                  
    /etc/init.d/waitfornm                                                     
    /etc/preload.d                                                            
    /etc/preload.d/Firefox
    /etc/preload.d/Khelpcenter
    /etc/preload.d/OpenOffice
    /etc/preload.d/gdm
    /etc/preload.d/kde
    /etc/preload.d/kdm
    /etc/preload.d/kdm.auto
    /opt/kde3
    /opt/kde3/share
    /opt/kde3/share/autostart
    /opt/kde3/share/autostart/appspreload.desktop
    /sbin/preload
    /sbin/print-bmap
    /usr/bin/appspreloader.sh
    /usr/bin/e2block2file
    /usr/bin/e2remapblocks
    /usr/bin/preloadblocks
    /usr/bin/prepare_preload
    /usr/bin/update_preload
    /usr/sbin/bootcache
    /usr/share/doc/packages/preload
    /usr/share/doc/packages/preload/bootfaster.diff
    /var/cache/preload
    As you can see all described scripts are in the package except pasre_strace which is on the website. You have to look out for the sections without PePr.

    Hope this helps
