4. I use slim as a lightweight login manager.

As far as I know Slim has been reported broken and unmaintained. Whether true or not, I've switched to gdm (2.20) and it's a little faster than slim 8O ...


Interesting... I did not know that. I've installed gdm. I just need to install a better theme. I think I like it better anyway. Slim is just too simple.

Anyhow, I've been thinking about making gentoo boot faster... and also just making gentoo faster in general. I'm going to be buying some more memory as soon as I can afford it.

There's a couple things that I would like to try. One is readahead as found here: http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/HOWTO_prefetch_files_on_boot. I'm wondering... is this fairly safe? That wiki was made in 2005 and as you all know... Linux changes fast. I've tried to search for sites about readahead that were posted within the last year, and I've not found much.

The other thing I'm doing now is rebuilding my entire system with these LDFLAGS
Code:
LDFLAGS="-Wl,-O1 -Wl,--sort-common -Wl,--as-needed"


We will see if that helps or not... but I hope it will. I think that my computer will probably not be done compiling until tomorrow afternoon and there's about 1000 packages that need to be re-emerged!

Split from Help Gentoo Boot As Fast As Possible as it was a double of the post preceding it.
