LXer: Linux 2.6.30 Gets Faster Boot - but is Fedora Faster?

Published at LXer:

Fastboot's inclusion in the kernel is one of the release's key elements, providing a mechanism for faster startup times within the mainline kernel itself. According to Red Hat, there is a difference between the aims and process of the new mainline Linux kernel's fastboot -- which was contributed to the community by Intel -- and the approach to faster startups taken in Fedora 11. "They're solving a different set of problems," Fedora kernel maintainer Dave Jones told "The Fedora work has been almost entirely done by improving init scripts in userspace, and by making applications more intelligent about the I/O they are doing."
