Tested readahead-fedora - some notes

Hi, Raphael.  I tested the readahead-fedora package available from
and it seemed to work.  Using it made kdm fail to start X with a
working keyboard, but I suspect that is another problem.

I noticed a bug in the debian/init.d/stop-readahead-fedora LSB header.
it should stop the readahead process in all runlevels, at least 1-5.
At the moment it only runs in runlevel 2.

I noticed the profile run was very fast.  That is good.  I also tried
the daily cron job, but it did not modify the files in /var/lib/.

The files to read can not live in /var/, as this is not mounted in
early boot on a system with separate /var/.  This need to be fixed.  I
suspect /etc/ is the only safe place to store these files.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
