Hi AbNoRMiS
yes the parameter (=libata.force=1.00:mwdma2) worked as promised. Now it's running in MWDMA2 and not PIO4 as before.
Cheers
Sam

make onboot.lst like this
Code: [Select]
Xvesa.tcz
Xprogs.tcz
jwm.tcz
wbar.tcz
OSS.tcz
immediately after system boot with these configuration will employ about 20mb memory
all further extensions such as mplayer, browser etc can install as ondemand
and they will not take time during boot and not take memory until start them
and you do not have to include usr folder to backup
all current data of these extensions are written in home folder
and will be backed up during reboot and will be ready after reboot

Hello Abnormis
my list is quite small bu I need samba at startup to connect my CIFS shares via fstab and ALSA; a few OnDeamnd I tested only works when installed Onboot as well. I'm still on a workaround to install statically usually used programms.
Currently I'm out of time
Cheers
Sam

Hi sam.vanratt
Are you looking to share files or access files on another machine? If you just want to access files on another
machine,  cifs-utils.tcz  will do that.

Hi Rich
if I can use mount.cifs (via fstab) that's enough and should significantly lower the RAM usage. I'll try it in about a week or so and report back
Cheers
