Try to boot without any psubdir and pdev1 entries if that makes a difference.

Thanks, Karl. When I remove all the "p*=" from the kernel line, the Precise boot time decreases by 10s despite a new ~5s delay for "Hibernated NTFS partition: cannot mount".

No discussion of Puppy's "speed" should overlook how fast Puppy is when SHUTTING DOWN! I have used several different Puppies, from 4.1.2 to Slacko 5.6, all frugal installations, and every one has shut down and powered off in less than 10 seconds.

By comparison, it is not unusual for my WinXP machine to take over 3 minutes to shut down.

shutting down.....

all around he 5-10 seconds mark...except NT4... thats an unreal 3 seconds.

If XP is slow to shut down stuck windows updates seem to be the most common cause.... another reason to disable it... my XP is 5-10 seconds like the others.

Multi ISO booting USB 2.0 and testing from the same machine.
I think the test is fair enough.
XP is not for comparison, except all are full clean install.

My shutdown on this laptop tends to be slow -- but I'm loading from a SD card in the side (and write speeds are not blistering on that).

14.68 seconds

FatDog64 630rc1
Frugal
Intel® Core™ i5 2430M/2410M Processor
4 gig ram
ASUS U36SD

One might believe I either cheat to "win" here, but I dont. Neither do I have SSD. In a comment to James Bond, the main dev of FatDog64, I thanked him for saving me the investment of a SSD.

Going from other distro to FatDog64 felt like the days I had a SSD actually.

Anyhow. What is the difference of speed from normal installation to compared to frugal?

PostPosted: Thu 06 Mar 2014, 15:07    Post_subject: Boot time of Fatdog64  

cpu: intel i3
ram: 6gb
os: Fatdog64-630 final
installed media: 1gb old usb stick
install type: small intrid
savefile location: harddrive
Boot Time: 11s

I am new to Linux. I just installed fatdog because I had one old usb stick laying around. At first it used to take around 40s to boot, I asked in fatdog thread under puppy project section of forum. I immidiately got replies from fellow fatdog users to make fresh install And select small intrid.
And voila My system now boots in 11s.
This includes wait 5sec for dev.
I was so impressed that I went and bragged to my friends using XP and now my 2 friends have started using fatdog.
Wink Very Happy
