hi

Am very impressed with Blag. Thanks very much for doing the project, appreciated. we also use mandrake, which i think is a tiny bit faster than Blag on older machines (P2 and below, 64MB RAM sort of thing)

Is there anything that is recommended to speed up the default blag install? Obviously XFCE instead of Gnome is a good start. any suggestions very welcome. we would prefer to use Blag as the front page has a link to anarchy and linux which is cool :-)

XFCE is a big start, since it's usually RAM, not CPU that is needed most.

Turn off all services that aren't needed:
Code:
/sbin/chkconfig --list | grep on


Then turn off ones you don't want:
Code:
/sbin/chkconfig --level 2345 rawdevices off


where you replace "rawdevices" with some service you want to turn off. Odds are you don't need rawdevices.

Here's a list of things you probably want on, for a desktop:

atd
kudzu
syslog
network
random
crond
anacron
xfs

Take a look at http://www.rule-project.org as its main focus is to run latest Red Hat and now Fedora on low end machine. Blagg being Red Hat based I hope it can benefit from RULE with less effort.
