    Default Ubuntu 12.04: Initrds, Qt 5, DKMS & More

    Phoronix: Ubuntu 12.04: Initrds, Qt 5, DKMS & More

    Here's some more of what was discussed Tuesday at the Ubuntu Developer Summit for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS "Precise Pangolin" in Orlando, Florida...

    "ProcFS support is likely to be removed" - sounds like a bad joke, are you sure about it, Michael?

    /proc is essential for a lot of Linux utitilies like top, ps, ifconfig, uptime, alsa related utils and applications.

    I've been using an initrd free system for years, the only modules I have are for my PS3's USB DVB dongle (as I hardly ever use it)

    My whole kernel is about 2.5MB when compressed with xz

    I should really make some boot graphs some time

    I too run initramfs-less kernels on both my laptop and my server. My laptop has only the "nvidia" module loaded, and my server has no modules whatsoever!

    It's great when you find a bug and need to bisect as there's a whole lot less to build each time

    Supporting initrd-less boot out of the box - good, the initrd part can be 1/4 - 1/5 of the boot on ARM.

    Removing proc - did they pass out free mushrooms at the event?
