And the boot chart:


@Head_on_a_Stick , it s an F1 compared to my install !

Guess that you re much better than me at tuning your installs.Wonder if a ssd would make much of a difference on my install.


Yeah, I had to disable quite a few .services to get that time, Debian seem to have a fetish about turning everything on by default.

I don’t run a display manager or NetworkManager, I think that helps a lot but the SSD isn’t being used fully — it’s a 6GiB/s device but the X201 only has a 3GiB/s bus connection:

[    1.692065] ata1: SATA link up 3.0 Gbps (SStatus 123 SControl 300)




Thx for the comeback in there.

Looking at my blame output, I can see that Network Manager & Display Manager takes its toll on my install. Gotta work on these defaults one day !

@TheJameyBear, another fast one ! My craptops might end up in the garbage now ! lol


This is definitely one of the fastest distros, and I have tried them all literally. I don’t think I can get this one any leaner then it is already.


@loonymike , you bet, also wonder what hardware you have, it looks 3 Times faster then my fastest install.

Really like AL also on my end.


You won’t believe this but it is my old Thinkpad T420 i5 6gb ram :smiley:


@loonymike , gee , you must ve made miracles with it ! lol

Glad for you mate.

Gee, that s fast compared to my craptops ! lol


I have dual boot with other Linux, in the latest updates the screen with tty1 appears, before it was not so, but this good …


Looks good !


Now a detail should be highlighted, with the swap file booting is faster in relation to a partition, access is optimized.


Nice job in there with the tweakings
