Is it true, that after install prelink I must activate it?

Asked by Belyaev Nikolay on 2009-10-01

I install prelink 3-4 month ago. After reading the notes on the forum http://forum.runtu.org/index.php/topic,1963.msg12961.html , which states that we should edit the file /etc/default/prelink and run the script sudo /etc/cron.daily/prelink. I did it. And the script really runing long time and seems to work was (more memory is loaded). But this is only sensation.

My question. If the post on the forum is true, then what's the point set, and then digging in the config file? Why during the installation does not start the daemon and configure the file correctly in source of prelink

It's certainly true that prelinking is not enabled by default, even when you install it. My 2 cent's worth is that prelinking does not speed things up significantly anyway, here are my results: http://smackerelofopinion.blogspot.com/2009/06/does-prelinking-speed-up-boot-times.html

Perhaps this needs to be filed as a bug. Hope that helps!

Can you help with this problem?
