Hi, I would like to know if there is a way to make my Linux boot up faster. It is already fast, but I heard from my technician friends that there is something I can do to even make it more faster to boot. There is this program that is installed and I want to know more and how to successfully install the program. It is also installed in Ubuntu. Are they installed the same way in Linux?

Here some tips to boot linux faster. First is you have to disable all unnecessary services, just deselect services that you don’t want to start, disable needless kernel modules, the best way to find it is to run your system to install Boot chart. Third is to use a lightweight windows manager instead of using GNOME.

Use and open bios or upgrade your PC’s firmware, if you are working on a network go with the static IP address. Get rid of hot plug, if your server won’t need this system. And lastly use a Debian, you can use this to switch the startup scripts to run in parallel.

Just like in a Windows operating system, proper system maintenance is still the key in making the computer perform more efficiently. Your hard drive should be checked regularly for any possible errors. You should check your hard drive using any disk utility application.

To check your hard drive thoroughly, use disk utility applications like Norton SystemWorks, Norton Utilities, or PC Tools Performance Toolkit. I’m not sure if any of these applications work in Linux but might as well try it.

You should also keep your system virus free. Update your antivirus then run a full system scan on your computer on a regular basis. This is also another way of manually monitoring your system from viruses.

You should also remove some of the applications that you are not actually using from the startup. This adds up to the amount of time your computer boots. You should also defrag your hard drive on a regular basis.
