boot faster - Ubuntu

     Make your Ubuntu to Boot faster. I hope most of us are using processors with more than one core. If you are having more than one core in your processors then just follow the steps to make your Ubuntu to boot faster!

     All we going to do is, run boot-time scripts in parallel. While booting Ubuntu will run several scripts which start necessary background services. You can configure Ubuntu to run scripts in Parallel.

     1. Open the following file in Gedit using the command.
$ gksu gedit /etc/init.d/rc

     2. Search for the line which has "CONCURRENCY=none" and change it to  "CONCURRENCY=shell".

     3. Now reboot your computer and check it! Your computers boot might be reduced!
