I was just catching up with this mailing list and read your mail. I had 
not yet the change to test the readahead-fedora package and the 2.6.31 
kernel has not yet made the unstable repository. I have some questions 
for us all thou :D

Why is does the readahead-fedora need the manual interference of the 
user to set the profile kernel option the fist time? Why can't the 
kernel system take a command for one time?

I disable services with the following command example:
sudo update-rc.d -f ssh remove

But everytime the package of the init script is updated the service is 
enabled again on boot. How do you all solve this? It driving me mad to 
run my "disable unneeded services" script every few months?

Best regards,
