Subject: [gentoo-user] Optimizations for SSD netbook
Date: Sat, 30 May 2009 00:24:07
1 My girlfriend is at her wit's end with her SSD netbook and is now
2 hogging my laptop. Her netbook has 1GB RAM that could be upgraded to
3 1.5GB, but I've read that it's a pain. It already runs xfce4, and
4 I've just made these optimizations based on past discussions:
6 1. CFLAGS="-march=prescott -0s -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -ssse3"
7 2. added elevator=noop as a boot parameter
8 3. disabled DRI to save 32MB RAM
9 4. removed the swap partition from /etc/fstab
11 Am I missing anything significant? I've read that it's good to set up
12 /tmp in RAM. How can I do that? In /etc/fstab I have:
14 shm /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec
16 Is that related?
