5 Ways to make Linux boot fasterLinux users are very proud of the fact that Linux is pretty darn fast compared to other operating systems. Not only that, but Linux does not seem to suffer much of the same quagmire effect that Windows gets when you have hundreds of applications installed on the system.
However, the speed junkies who use Linux (and you can be one of them) always have to find new ways to make your system go even faster.
Disabling unneeded services and startup applications is a simple tip that works for all operating systems. The less the system has to load at startup, the less time it will take until it is done. It’s simple math, really.
Be sure to look at your startup applications to see if you can clear any you do not need immediately at startup. If you are clever, you can also disable certain system services and disable kernel drivers are not going to need. However, if you do not know how to do this, or do not know what to do with the results of Google, it is best to let the services and drivers are. The default set should be fine.
Choose light Alternatives
Is there a service that is absolutely necessary? If this is the case, then you may want to look into more lightweight alternative to its current program that is giving the service you need. That way, you do not have to sacrifice the convenience of the service to disable completely, but you can still reduce the startup time.
Common changes include changing your desktop environment LXDE or other lightweight alternatives.
Keep track of changes
Updates are also very important, and is a great tip for those who have been using Linux for a long time. As Linux distributions tend to update literally all components of the system (and installed applications), including the kernel itself, it is very important to install the updates. These updates can include enhancements or other changes that could reduce the startup time.
Microsoft generally want to play the Windows kernel as rarely as possible in the form of changes to keep the system changes very stable throughout the life of the operating system, but the developers Linux world are much more willing to add positive changes any package.
Clean Some Crap
Cleaning your system occasionally is just as effective in shaving second boot time. Tools like the command line, Ubuntu Tweak, or BleachBit everyone can help with this, cleaning out old cache files, unnecessary packets, and old cores backup most likely never need it again. With less mess on your hard drive, the system can boot faster and will be more sensitive during regular use. Plus they could stay healthier too.
Speaking of drives, you may want to consider upgrading your hard drive to one that has a higher rate RPM speed data transfer higher SATA (if it is compatible with the motherboard), or a unit of state already sold. If the hard drive is starting off is faster, Linux will most likely also start faster.
If you also want to update other hardware components will be beneficial as well. Sometimes, it is the rate-limiting hardware, not software.
Linux is extremely versatile, allowing you to do whatever they want with it. The modular design is also helpful, allowing you to replace aging parts of the system more efficient. With these tips, I hope you can gain a little more speed with this great operating system.
