I’ve probably never had such a fast boot up time on this old laptop. I was using voidlinux for 4 years and then alpine linux for a 2 months and I thought boot up time is quite good but for some unknown reason (to me) Garuda is even faster… It could only be 3 or 4 secs faster, but still
Share an output of
systemd-analyze, and your PC specs. I’m curious.

wow, 3 seconds is fast as hell

Have you tweaked the system or how the heck does your system boots that fast tho

Not that my system is something to boast about (I was not even gonna post) but damn, I expected much worse…

Yep, even I assume Hyprland will take only 5s startup time on mine because it’s so light…
Will try that in future and post (got a reason to go back lol)
I have changed from hdd to ssd, so I guess I have
tweaked a system. I’m surprised myself about boot speed, however, this is a fresh install and I have only installed extra Garuda wallpapers so, there is no extra read-time I assume. Using sway-wm also helps I assume. You are using ssd as well, right?

not bad for 15 year old hardware lmao >.>
firmware has password at boot so it takes a few extra seconds.
this is without the bios PW at boot:

new image, firmware time includes a 3 second countdown in Grub for OS selection.
Wow! 23.4GiB memory?! What are you trying to remember?
i’d tell you if i could >.>

How can I miss the chance to showoff my fastfetch
Oh, yes, that’s very pretty. I thought it’s default of Garuda KDE version and if it’s not, it should be
wtf lol my 12 year old ‘potato’ is faster than yours?
I need a new pc
Says the one with most bleeding edge overpowered pc here… (Atleast out of those who have posted).
and mine is ‘ancient’ and statistically speaking the most efficient so far lmao
i’m itching to build a new one with modern components and see what i can do, but i’m too poor these days to drop 10k on a new rig.
