    Phoronix: Early Boot Speed Results For Ubuntu 12.10

    Here's an early look at some Bootchart numbers for two systems running Ubuntu 12.10 development snapshots compared to earlier releases...

    Meh, who cares, when GRUB takes two seconds to display its menu? Had that from the initial Kubuntu 12.10 beta and it's still not fixed. Not a Ubuntu specific problem, I guess, but it will slow the boot time of any distro using GRUB2

    I'm also sometimes wondering about these inefficient/slow GNU projects like grub2, the autohell suite, you name it.

    It's an obvious issue. Bugs are meant for other reasons, not for broken/slow stuff from the get go.

    Not everything is so obvious. It could be a hardware issue on your end, or something else software-wise they aren't subject to.

    And yes, bugs are meant for everything that's a bug. The price of free software is that we do more testing on our own and report the results. They won't fix issues they don't know are issues in the first place.

    Such a software package exists. It's called ABRT. I don't know what distro you use, but perhaps it's time you switched to Fedora. ABRT rocks. It does all the work. I've only had to file one manual bug report since ABRT "took over".

    You know what? You're a helpful guy, so don't take this as an attack to your person. But I really hate having to log into a million platforms for each bug I stumble upon. I would love to report stuff, but if developers really want my reports, they should make tools that log in as bots and complete the report. Having to install debug packages is annoyance enough. So there, if anyone thought Linux is lagging on the desktop because of video drivers or lack of games, there's an additional problem for you.

    looking at the slow chart for the fx-8150, it seems to spend a lot of time in apparmor_parser. does this run at every boot? or is there a cache that get rebuilt sometimes? maybe you should be comparing the best of several runs, other wise you may just be seeing random variations.

    On your ubuntu system, lauch this and fill the form with the requested details: ubuntu-bug grub2

    If you ever want to report against a graphical program, "ubuntu-bug -w" and then click on the window of that program or "ubuntu-bug $PID" with $PID being the process ID of a running program.

    This is so complicated that a 2 years old kid could to it. Now what new excuse do you have?
