General Development OSNews was the first news magazine to break the story on Gnome's Seth Nickell effort to replace the Init system. Soon, it became confusing to many readers as to if Seth is planning to completely replace the Init system or simply "bridge" it. We had a chat with Seth and discussed about his plans on the project (which is a personal project so far) and for Storage, an exciting project which aims to replace the traditional filesystem with a new database-based document store.

Getting The Display Manager Up Quicker
by Siti on Thu 2nd Oct 2003 05:34 UTC

What I have done to get the display manager coming up asap and the system be usable, in gentoo is by setting the xdm service to start first. Because gentoo uses a deps system all required services are started for gdm. This makes the booting look quicker and only takes ~ 30 secs from when the kernel boots until the display manager to come up:)
