    I bet this isn't the place to ask.... I'm curious- how long does it take to boot on an average? both that Ice Linux and UBuntu..

    I've got UBuntu on my laptop, but it takes a good 40 seconds or so for it to boot up

    That really depends on an awful lot of variables. My system boots from cold in circa 30seconds.

    the epia specific linux kernel in the LinuxICE repo had a cold boot of ~ 30s and a resume in 11. results here. NOTE: this was tested on an actual m10000 which isn't a very fast beast at all.

    Some hackers at Intel were able to get the boot process down to 5 seconds. Getting your system to do this would require a lot of work. But they have submitted their code patches upstream so we should see their work in future versions of the kernel, Xorg, etc...

    so this is my first post over here in the linux side, and i just have a quick question. i am trying to get the whole ubuntu mobile/hildon desktop thing working and i just keep running into road blocks. i followed the instructions that were posted on the first post, to only mild success. I am able to switch sessions to start the hildon desktop. now i only get the top bar to which only the calander and keyboard buttons actually do anything. the rest of the screen is black with no icons whatsoever. im sure that i am missing some packages somewhere or am just not doing something somewhere right. Also i was able to get this to work fully in KVM on the ubuntu desktop, but obviously this is not what i am ultimately going for. i would like to have the hildon desktop replace the current one running in ubuntu.

    i am fairly new to linux (my carpc is actually a mac mini) but i am learning fast and just need a nudge in the right direction. any help would be GREATLY appreciated. thanks in advance.

    --I should note that testing is being done in a VM in OSX for the time being (my screen is busted in my car) so i am trying to get everything running in the VM, so when i get my monitor fixed i will be good to go all the way around.

    What version of Ubuntu are you running?

    Thanks

    The instructions were written for Hardy, 8.04... I haven't upgraded as 8.04 is an LTS version. Why not try an LTS version in your VM setup?

    i may try that. the beauty of vm is how easy i can start a new install without much effort. ok now this may be a very stupid question (as i stated earlier i am still pretty new to linux and all the terminology) what is LTM, and why would it be better/worse than my current version. thanks

    EDIT: ignore that last question. quick google search and i found my answer. downloading 8.04 now, to see if that works any better
