Boot up time

How does FC4 do booting up compaired to previous redhat versions before fedora core? Does it still list everything in the beginging line by line?

My Fedora 4 loads up pretty quick. You have an option to view stuff line by line, but normally, you just see a splash screen with a moving line, a la WinXP. You can choose to view the verbose startup sequence by pressing escape (kinda like old Win98, you could hit escape to watch it process your config.sys and autoexec.bat.)

Yes, so does mine. Much quicker than FC2 which I was using before.

i have an amd athlon xp 1800+ 784mb 784mb of ram and 3 hdd's == 12gb shush i know i need to add more.. anyways oh and a geforce4 64mb vid card. i don't use fc4 but i do use fc3 and honestly i find it takes longer to load fc3 on this system than it took to load rh7.2 on a pII 400mhz w/ 196mb of ram. fc3 DOES give you the option to view everything it loads up at the beginning but i find if you're using the gui, at least in my case it writes over itself
i'll get 3 or 4 lines right on top of each other so i can't read wtf it says its loading.. i dunno if its just my system or if its a known bug but i'm sure fc4 is better..

I find FC4 to boot slightly faster than FC3, however I do not find it very significant.

As far as what is seen during bootup this can all be controlled. Every version of Fedora came installed with the Redhat Graphical Boot screen (RHGB) which if you left 'rhgb' in the 'kernel' line in your 'grub.conf', it would show a pretty boot screen using the X-server graphics. FC2 and onwards had 'quiet' which would prevent showing extra kernel boot information (this is all logged anyways).

So to speed up, you can kill 'rhgb', add 'quiet' and biggest factor is to control what services and daemons are set during boot. Chances are there are many that you do not need.
