Klaus Knopper answers your Linux questions
Klaus solves problems with slow boots, Windows print shares, device detection, and clock synchronization.
Lin Hearts Win?
Dear Klaus: Thank you for the explicit answers. I am waiting to read your answers in every magazine.
My Asus K53SV laptop behaves strangely. SUSE Linux 12.3 boots in 13 seconds after restart from Windows 7, always, but it takes 27 seconds after a direct boot. Restarting Linux after Linux does not speed up the boot time. Maybe Linux has warm feelings for Windows?
Both OSs are 64 bit. The bootloader is GRUB. Original HDD was replaced with SSD – Mushkin Chronos 480GB. BIOS is American Megatrends v.320. Do you see a way to make Linux boot directly in 13 seconds?
