10.3: Decrease the amount of time required to boot
Authored by: grahams on Jan 15, '04 02:52:42PM

It seems to me that you would be better off using a symbolic link than creating a copy of the file in /usr/sbin. This way, if BootCache.kext changes in the future your copy of BootCacheControl in /usr/sbin isn't out of sync (which could potentially cause major system headaches).

It seems that:

sudo ln -s /System/Library/Extensions/BootCache.kext/Contents/Resources/BootCacheControl /usr/sbin/BootCacheControl

(all one line) would be a better command to try.

This would fall in line with other symbolic links in /usr/sbin, such as AppleFileServer.

So are you gonna post that over at the Apple discussion about the issue?

Someone already has. It's just hidden deeper in that discussion.

Well, I did too, so I guess I should have read all 100 messages. Then again, it seems kind of important to me, so i guess a bump won't hurt anyone (unless I am wrong and it causes computers to explode. :P)

10.3: Decrease the amount of time required to boot
Authored by: vinylone on Jan 19, '04 09:51:16AM

How do I *undo*

sudo cp -p /System/Library/Extensions/BootCache.kext/\
Contents/Resources/BootCacheControl /usr/sbin

I went and applied it before I read the rest of the posts (argh!). There's a lesson there somewhere...

regards, and thanks in advance,

Eric Lecht
