    Default 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.

    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.

    Most likely you did not notice that ubuntu devs usually do not fix things which are not in launchpad. Because that way they can say they fixed bug x or y for the money they get.

    I won't even pretend I was paying any attention. But boy I'd be in trouble if I waited for clients to raise all bugs on my behalf...
