Tested from initial boot (pre splash image) to login prompt on a
gnome desktop with X86 2.4 GHz Pentium and 1gb RAM. (RC3).<br>
Prior to patch, 95 seconds, post patch, 65 seconds. Assuming I boot
up twice a day, then I save just over 6 hours in a year. That's a
few decent movies I would have missed.<br>
I did not detect any downside to start up, as desktop was fully
functional 40 seconds after login in both scenarios.<br>
Looking forward to 9.0.<br>
Thanks and Happy Christmas to all<br>

Got a few files here I thought I'd make available for testing to
evaluate putting them into 9.0.
This updated /etc/rc & /etc/rc.delay files change how booting works, to
try and boot us faster to a GUI login. This happens by delaying certain
services / networking from loading until after the GUI starts. On my
slower netboot here, it shaved a 84 second boot down to 45ish seconds,
almost a 50% reduction. I'll be curious to hear about others results,
plus if any problems occur.
To test this out, first as root do:
# cp /etc/rc /etc/rc.orig
Then copy the attached rc & rc.delay to /etc/rc and /etc/rc.delay
After that you can reboot and see if it makes any difference for you.
If you want to undo the patch, just do:
# cp /etc/rc.orig /etc/rc
# rm /etc/rc.delay
I'd be curious to hear about boot-times before and after, I timed it
here from the boot-splash screen to the time the login appeared for GDM.
