I can&#39;t speak about squashfs. However, as Derek Tracy eluded to, you can do<br>other things to improve performance such as running a different init system. I<br>remembering trying init-ng a while back and it ran fine, but I didn&#39;t want to
<br>take the time to mess with it too much and reverted back to sysVinit. There is<br>a wiki on different init systems [1].<br><br>You may also want to check the forums for discussions on bootchart. This is a<br>boot time monitor that generates graphs of load times. I&#39;ve never run it, but
<br>people seem to get a lot of success from it. Hopefully that&#39;s some useful place<br>to start even if it&#39;s not related to squashfs.<br><br>[1] <a href="http://gentoo-wiki.com/TIP_Speed_up_your_boot_time">http://gentoo-wiki.com/TIP_Speed_up_your_boot_time
