Gentoo baselayout-2 and openrc impressions

one word: _amazing_.

The first thing someone notices is the speed difference. It is BIG.
Just take a look at the following 2 graphs from the same machine and judge on your own:


Baselayout: 2.0.0

55->29 seconds!!!! Impressive!

Machine specs described here:

I haven’t done any thorough tests on it yet, but I will certainly do. Great job roy marples! Thans a lot!

Tip: to get bootchart working when you have baselayout-2 installed add: init=/sbin/bootchartd to your kernel line in grub. Else you will face problems getting it to work.

Baselayout: 2.0.0 with kernel 2.6.24 + running prelink.

25 Seconds!! that’s less than 50% of the original 55seconds boot process!
