I found this list few days ago and I tried bootchart on my laptop. I
have a dell D630 with Fedora 9 (updated from fedora 8 with anaconda).
My actual kernel is the last 64 bit (2.6.27), updated yesterday:
[lfoppiano@sboing ~]$ uname -a
Linux sboing.byte-code.lan 22.214.171.124-37.fc9.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Nov 12
18:31:37 EST 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I tried bootchart and I got a lot of strange things:
- nash is slow (it takes about 20 second to inizialize itself)
- there are a lot of "grep" and bash launched after udevd
I don't have idea why my chart is as is, but, using kernel verbosity
(removing quiet) on the kernel option, I noted it needed more than 10
second to load the SATA driver.
I attached to you bootchart chart and kernel log from /var/log/messages
I don't know if the problem is the kernel configuration/build or
something else (maybe my configuration should be cleaned) but I'm try to
fix it without reinstall fedora. ;-)
