If you're not on 3.8.2 yet, do update, it boots faster. The kernel part of the boot is significantly improved in 4.x, too.
Thx for the tip, running a remaster now with 3.8.2 and will test it this evening and come back with a timing.
It seems I was already on the 3.8.2 so no improvement there.
A little update:
Remastered with the 3.8.4 and added a new boot parameter a received from a member: floppy=0,irq
What I have now:
** TC 3.8.4 remastered with: alsa, firefox, flash, wireless, wl, xfce4, xfi, leafpad, ntfs-3g, xarchiver, zip, unrar, gparted and openssh. => size: 66,6 MB
** Boot code: noapm hda=none hdb=none hdc=none hdd=none floppy=0,irq noisapnp nofirewire nopcmcia embed noswap quiet host=lichtSystem kmap=be-latin1 tce=sda1/tce
Final boot time: <9s
So my first objective complete, distro boots faster then 10s!!! Ready to go www
Who knows, some person may get something from this info
Thanks guys, very nice distro. I have been playing around with slitaz lately wich also has a nice structure and very small!! (lzma) But I find the modular approach and the persistence waaaay more advanced, easier and practical. Just saying :-)
On the other hand, slitaz has a very small 30 mb iso, with a full workable and nice looking distro. Which is also nice :-)
