I've been using puppy off and on for a few years, and now have slacko running full install on an older PC with the Nouveau nvidia driver. It's the first distro I've run on this hardware that did not need a mess of teaking out of the box to get that card to work. Kudos!

Anyway, since this is a discussion on boot options, I've been checking out various posts about speeding up puppy boot time. I saw the emphasis was on hardware detection, and this can be one reason it takes so long to boot for such a comparatively small distro (my time is about 45 seconds, good but not great).

So I was wondering - and I have no idea how difficult this would be - what about a boot option like ubuntu offers to create a profile? The profile would create a file of the drivers actually used in the hardware on the computer, and load those only instead of doing a search at boot time.

This could be automatically disabled on a live disc / usb / what-have-you (since you never know the hardware in such a case). On a frugal install, the profile could be checked first and executed if found.

Just throwing it out there.

I propose to add one option to the boot menu.

"Boot with sfs on current media"

This way when booting starts, puppies wouldn't be looking for all partition, but only on the booting one, which would result in a faster boot.
