Speed up openSUSE!

Feature state

openSUSE-11.2
Duplicate of #306367
Status: Done
openSUSE-11.3
Duplicate of #306367

Description

This should be really nice. It needs to have speed. Fast boot time like in Ubuntu or Fedora would REALLY be nice. Also, speed up most of the applications including YaST and Update manager. On Distrowatch.com, they put up that openSUSE is slow and bloated sometimes(resource heavy YaST or other openSUSE-Specific apps.)

For the replacement of SysV-Init it is too early, the Linux and Unix industry should define a standard before. At the moment the relativly slow SysV init is only of the common things in most Unix and Linux distributions (excluding Ubuntu and Solaris 10).

Fast boot time is not realy a measure to decide how good or bad a distribution is. On my desktop, the POST takes longer than the rest of boot process (to the console, runlevel 3). Maybe BIOS manufacturers should be questioned about this.

YaST: It is just a front end for different tools. If you dont like YaST's performance use zypper, rpm and vi as more performant and lightwight options.
