Re: LMDE Boot Faster

Follow the instructions from Lifehacker or follow the #! thread here

You probably have not profiled your boot with:

Code: Select all

init=/sbin/e4rat-collect

Yes it definitely works on Debian

Re: LMDE Boot Faster

Look at E4Rat to speed up boot times. This is one of the reasons Antix Linux is so fast to start.

Re: [solved] open 2 web browsers system unresponsive or lock

It does make a difference - with 2 gig of RAM + ZRAM I no longer have Virtualbox crashing if I have lots of applications open. Perhaps also consider a lighter desktop than GNOME - XFCE or Fluxbox (or both)

Re: systemd (re)entered testing today! Should Mint adopt it?

It seems if you have a separate partition for /boot & / running systemd will not work without systemd-sysv also being installed. Along with e4rat I now boot around 35% faster. ZRAM is also a nice tweak putting compressed swap into RAM.
