Re: 1-second kernel

There was a 5-second Linux entry a while back, and it was mentioned that

I'm not seeing it on the F10 install (updated to latest release version).
I'm guessing that's because of initrd (I heard that it must be turned
off for 1-second kernel to work).

Is there (or are there plans for) a maintained version of 1-second
kernel for Fedora?

Fedora is currently not targeted to embedded dedicated applications. I doubt that you will see a practical five second boot on server or workstation commercial hardware any time soon. By practical here I mean something that doesn't need to be tuned to each machine and/or assume anything on the network (DNS or DHCP servers) will respond instantly.

The way some tests count "boot time" starts with a machine up and running at the boot manager, ignoring real world stuff like disk spinup, etc, it tests a portion of the delay from power on to ready to use.
