Linux speed hacks

Preload Install an application called prefetch which preloads commonly used files. It may take a few days for the program to learn your preferences so be patient. soon you will notice a significant boost in speed for your most commonly used applications. Note: Prefetch has been renamed to preload sudo apt-get install preload TMPRAM If you have …

eeepc ssh on startup

Start ssh server in EeePC After installing ssh server, I create a file /etc/opt/xandros/xandrosncs/hooks/post-up.d/99ssh, below is the content:     #!/bin/sh     /etc/init.d/ssh restart So it will start the ssh server after booting up. Don’t forget sudo chmod +x /etc/opt/xandros/xandrosncs/hooks/post-up.d/99ssh. By: Flint
