Is it me or my settings or is OS 11.1 dreadfully slow. It takes from Grub to a complete desktop in Gnome 1.25 minutes. (Measerment started, right after Grub ended and until all icons are displayed on the desktop.)
I’ve been searching around and can’t seem to get any tips or tricks to increase the boot speed. Does anybody have any suggestion on what I might try?
I’ve removed Beagle, turned off several services (app armor, blue-tooth, virtual terminals), but I don’t see much improvement. It even takes a bit longer to get fully loaded. Though the increase in loading time is now in the GUI. From Grub to Gnome is about the same boot time.
From what I understand from that webpage is that pre-loading only works with KDE. Which would explain that it only contained stuff for KDE in that directory. I removed all of those but not FF (though I don’t use FF) and not openoffice. Although everybody claims that Ext3 will not defrag, I have serious doubts about that.
