    Ping: Schotty

    Can you explain what you said here, in greater detail?

    Where to do that, and how? as prelink -aRv as su - returns "file not found"

    Running Shrike fully apt-get and up2date upgraded.

    Hey, have you prelinked your system? Mine is snappy as all hell. I
    used :

    prelink -aRv

    Re:Ping: Schotty

    OK, found this:

    You must have the prelink
    package installed. Type

    rpm -q prelink

    to find out if you do.

    If not, do up2date prelink

    to install it, or get the rpm from CD-2.

    Then, as root, just type

    prelink -aRv

    and wait for it to finish in the terminal window. It takes a while to
    start, don't give up.
    But: ....

    rpm -q prelink returns:
    Code:
    [root@ken /]# rpm -q prelink
    prelink-0.2.0-18
    [root@ken /]#
    and ... whereis prelink returns:
    Code:
    [root@ken /]# whereis prelink
    prelink: /usr/sbin/prelink /etc/prelink.conf /usr/share/man/man8/prelink.8.gz
    [root@ken /]#
    and ..

    Code:
    [root@ken /]# cd /usr/sbin
    [root@ken sbin]# prelink -aRv
    bash: prelink: command not found
    [root@ken sbin]#
    Yet: /etc/usr/sbin/prelink.conf contains:
    Code:
    # This config file contains a list of directories both with binaries
    # and libraries prelink should consider by default.
    # If a directory name is prefixed with `-l ', the directory hierarchy
    # will be walked as long as filesystem boundaries are not crossed.
    # If a directory name is prefixed with `-h ', symbolic links in a
    # directory hierarchy are followed.
    -l /bin
    -l /usr/bin
    -l /sbin
    -l /usr/sbin
    -l /usr/X11R6/bin
    -l /usr/kerberos/bin
    -l /usr/games
    -l /usr/libexec
    -l /var/ftp/bin
    -l /lib
    -l /usr/lib
    -l /usr/X11R6/lib
    -l /usr/kerberos/lib
    -l /usr/X11R6/LessTif
    -l /var/ftp/lib
    but ...
    Code:
    [root@ken sbin]# cd /
    [root@ken /]# prelink -aRv
    bash: prelink: command not found
    [root@ken /]#
    Color me befuddled ???

    Re:Ping: Schotty

    by default only root has sbin in his path, i find this ridiculus and always add it to my user path:

    export PATH=$PATH:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin

    you can throw that in your bashrc or wherever if you always want to have it. then prelink will work and /usr/sbin/prelink will always work

    Re:Ping: Schotty

    Hey man! Sorry to get back to ya so late. Havent been onmuch lately.

    You did indeed have a path issue. If you are having an issue like this, try typing the full path. That will always do the trick.

    Anyway, so how well has the prelinking helped ?

    As far as I can tell it has helped immensly the speed in opening the larger apps like OOOOOooooo and Mozzie

    I don't have a sweep second hand, or a watch, for that matter .. retired here, but it does in fact seem to cut by 2/3 or so the time to open a couple apps.

    I really appreciate the heads up on that trick!

    Applauds to you, too, man!
