Greetings testers,

This week's Test Day will focus on another upcoming Fedora 11 feature:
20 Second Startup [1].  This is a follow-on to a Fedora 10 effort to
reduce boot delay [2]. Harald Hoyer, David Kovalsky and Ondrej Hudlicky have created a test
procedure and looking to gather and analyze bootchart data.  Come
prepared with your favorite old-skool hardware setup.

Join #fedora-qa this Thursday, February 19, 2009 to help collect and
analyze boot speed data.  Follow the action at

Thanks to all who participated!

As a first outcome a new and improved readahead-1.4.8 hit rawhide today.

   - set low io priority (no more regression in boot time with readahead)
   - moved data files from /etc/readahead.d to /var/lib/readahead
- don't start readahead from readahead.event if system has less than 384MB

Here is a blog post about the results:
