Re: Future New Init for FC7?

why?
i have browsed through the kernel (with the "make menuconfig" thing) and i saw ALOT of stuff that i simply don`t need.. specially those annoying debugging messages at the start... they are turned on and can`t be turned off without changing it in the kernel.. (the boot quiet option doesn`t work).

you where  talking about kernelmodules... there are no debug _modules_ that get loaded by default.

and about the boot progress itself.. i understand that alot of stuff will needs to be loaded but does it really all have to start at once at boot? can`t the CORE ESSENTIALS be started together with gnome als often used programs pre cached so that the boot is fast and the desktop starts fast.

lets take bluetooth for example.. i don`t need to have that on all the time. i even SWITCHED back to wired mouses and keyboards because my bluetooth desktop set wasn`t even working (that was with FC6.. don`t know for FC7).
just start the services when a user needs them and autostart it when a user often needs it... will require some coding but will work alot faster simply because there is less to start AND it`s really only starting what the user uses most.

again my reply was refering to the "only load kernelmodules that I need" statement.

would be cool :)

this does not make any sense... the kernel / udev should only load
needed modules everything else is a bug
