Default Speeding up SL when booting? - 10-27-2009, 09:17 PM

Does anyone know how to get Snow Leopard to boot quicker on a 10v?

Aside from a few issues with a coloured pinwheel of death when I've got too many tabs open in Safari, SL is rock solid for me. But it does seem to take a while to boot, any solutions?

Thanks as always to everyone who made SL possible on my 10v,

schnide

when you interrupt the boot process and issue a -v command and continue to boot, you will see what is causing the slowness.

Most likely SL boot sequence is waiting on start processes on various scripts to complete or timeout. Record the slow ones and post your findings.

Okay, here are the ones that take a little longer than a flick of the screen. When I boot it up with -v:

launchctl: please convert the following to launchd:.. (took a little while)

com_psystar_RealktekR1000: Ethernet address.. (definitely took the longest out of all of them)

heh do a search on pystar.

I think this is Webster's definition:

a company who will charge you for software to 'hackintosh' your non-Apple pcs.

I did a search in Google on the full term that came up as problematic, but only found this thread.

So what the hell is it doing there, and is there anything I can do about it? It's hardly life threatening, but it is annoying.

Me too (ew, ew, get it ooo-ffff-fff).

It's only 2-3 seconds of a minute-long button-to-desktop boot, though. OP, what's your total boot time?

Pystar is a somewhat shaddy firm that repackages other folks work and charges for it.

It looks like somehow you've got their realtek ethernet card driver and its slow to start up. DO you need it? Why is it slow? Can't help on those.

It must be in the stuff from mechdrew. That seems so odd.

Personally, don't use the ethernet. It is a netbook, afterall. Worth the time to dig it out? For me to lose a couple of seconds on a 60+ second boot? Nah! The OP may be having more of an issue with it, however.
