How do i faster my boot to Linux SuSE?


hi, my name's eine and i'm a linux newb. i Finished installing SuSE 10.0 on my v2000. everything going fine, there's just one more things to done: my Boot would take a long long ( i mean REAL long ) time until my KDE is ready to launch. My SuSE always idle for about 1 minutes in the middle of the boot process. it is said "Disabling IPv6 Privacy" then it would do nothing in about 1 minute untilthe System gets to KDE.

can anybode help me how to get rid of the IPv6?and what is IPv6 by the way? ( i told you..i'm newb ) i am configuring my Suse a lot and i just want my boot is faster because my friend installed Suse too but he doesn't have to suffer it

its absolutly in normal, suse (systems) are one of slower distributions ever, try other one and u will see the difference (in time of booting) or update/reinstall to higher version os suse, 10 is quite old ....

suse isnt one of the fastest OSes to boot, it is one of the easiest to use but nowhere near the fastest,

if you want a distro that boots in seconds try slackware

You can switch off the services you are not using; as those services would be starting @ the boot as probably it would be a default install & you would'nt have done anything other as well as your are a .

So the first thing you got to know is how many services are running @ your box//
Code:
chkconfig  --list | grep 5:on
Though you can add RAM or SWAP to make it fast as well/
I suggest for removing unwanted softwares also.

@eine: with the suggestion of amitsharma_26, you can probably switch off: sshd
This is the ssh daemon used to login to your machine from a remote location, if you don't use it, it's safer and faster to switch it off.
