Quote:
Ever wondered what takes your Linux box so long to boot up? You can see for certain with the Bootchart package. Bootchart logs the entire startup process and produces a clean, graphical representation of its results suitable for everything from troubleshooting to good old-fashioned bragging rights.

It's best not to start messing with the startup process unless you know what you are doing, but let's be real: fouling up your Linux box then figuring out how to fix it again is a longstanding tradition. And admit it -- weren't you just a little bit jealous when Arjan van de Ven and Auke Kok demonstrated a tweaked Asus Eee PC booting to a working desktop in less than five seconds? Installing Bootchart and studying your own system's startup is the first step toward such optimization and the bragging rights that follow

Anyone fancy making a pet/SFS?

Feel like a tweak?....useful info

Aitch,

Is it possible to run bootchart package on puppy?
Is it available for wary500?

I am interested to know the boot process on general linux distros and specially for puppy. Which documents are good start?

Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak


Hi
No-one responded for my request for a .pet, however there's a deb pkg, and you could use deb2pet on it

http://packages.debian.org/sid/all/bootchart/download
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=39756

I have not used it, but apparently it gives a long file o/p to analyse

This page shows its use in /boot/grub/menu.lst

http://www.bootchart.org/docs.html

else google gives plenty of results

Another bb-feature to try is `bootchartd start` but it presents three large log files with somehow unuseable data :

about busybox bootchartd

It is about busybox bootchartd which is not enabled in the default /bin/busybox of Puppy.

Cheers
