Speedup Linux boot process with Pardus

in Categories Download of the day, Linux desktop, Tips last updated October 8, 2006

Pardus is yet another attempt to speeding Up Linux boot process.

From the project home page:
For a long time, Linux has been blamed to boot slowly, compared to other modern operating systems. In this article, we are going to focus on a new init system we developed for our Pardus Linux distribution, Mudur, together with other initiatives that are worth mentioning. Mudur is written from scratch in Python with simplicity, speed and maintainability in mind. It isn’t a replacement for the /sbin/init command like some other alternatives, nor just a parallel script executor. Mudur greatly simplified our boot process, making it faster and more flexible. Authors look forward for future boot process research for further improvement and optimizations.

  1. Pardus is a decent distro, and the major distro in Turkey, even if its developement has just started. However, I don’t quite like their negative approach to bug reporters and missing Kurdish language support. In the meantime, users should note that Mudur is still in development phase and not stable.
