TCE/TCZ for fastest boot time?
« on: May 18, 2009, 09:32:18 AM »
Hi everyone,
I'm impressed with TinyCore, it's exactly what I was looking for.

I've noticed that once I installed some TCEs it got quite slower at boot, and I would like to know if TCZ would be faster at boot time, though I know they should be a little slower when launching programs.

Thanks in advance,
Luca

Yes, loading TCZ type extensions is a lot faster than TCE.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

PPI is best method I've found of keeping your installed stuff from boot to boot without compromising boot time.
eee user. From Xandros to Debian via Breeezy to TCL.

I like to keep large binaries, like firefox, skype, etc., as PPI (installed on HD), with links to $HOME as necessary. Having things like .wine program files in your home directory can add 30 seconds or more to your backup in addition to increased boot time.
