    Episode 12: Optimizing Kernel Boot Time Part 2

    20/06/2007 Duración: 38min

    Maciej and Gene continue talking about system minimization and what steps you can take to reduce the memory footprint of your embedded device and get faster boot times and execution. Strategies include using the CONFIG_EMBEDDED option when building the kernel, using a more efficient filesystem (like initramfs) and taking advantage of pre-linking and execute in place.
