Somewhere in the dark...


I've sent a couple of emails on different issues which have gone unanswered. Maybe my questions are being dealt with. But without confirmation, I really don't know.

Do you mean emails to me? I answered about 10 of them from you last week. Maybe I am on your spam list??

I'm checking now to see what may be happening. But I haven't received emails from you in a long time. And I don't think I've changed any of my account settings. But I'm looking to see what may have happened.

You were right!

I just checked. I think somehow when Thunderbird got upgraded, it started compacting certain folders. Because I've now noticed the format in at least two folders (including the one dedicated to you) has no headers. And I have no idea how to change it back to my original setting. But I'm working to fix it now.

I hope that explains my earlier comments to you. I just didn't know it was happening.

Is there anyway of doing a fast RE-boot?

I've often wondered why the only alternative to telinit was to go right back to RE-booting the whole machine from the bios, so to speak. Is there any way of RE-booting by simply going back to the lilo/grub prompt?

IMO, it needs a init replacement which supports dependencies. Also, most of the services (like rc.bluetooth, rc.alsa/rc.amixer*I don't remember how was it called*, rc.cups) need to be started only when udev detects an appropriate device.
The problem with this is that it needs a dependency-based init system, since udev will find the device too early and will order the daemon started before it's dependencies are started, and that will fail. Udev needs to inform a dependency-based init daemon that this daemon _MUST_ be started, and the init daemon will start it as soon as the dependencies are met.

I've got a fully functional GNOME system booting for 18 seconds to desktop, and the init daemon took only about 3 seconds - the kernel and the GNOME startup took most of the boot time.

If anyone's intested, I will send him the packages. Note that it requires root to be mounted r/w in the initrd.
