I've just made a Live USB stick with Ubuntu 11.10 USB creator. I tried it on 2 laptops and the boot time is very long, more than 5 mn. Is it normal ?
If it is, what is the interest of having a portable OS if it take ages to boot ?
With a 2GB memory stick, I reduced the persistent memory from 4 to 1 gb and the boot time was faster, less than 2 mn. I tryed with an 8 Gb USB stick again with a persistent memory of 1 g, and the boot time is 4 mn.
It seem's that the boot time is linked with the USB memory stick and persistent memory size.
Is that true ? Will the boot time be faster with a class 8 USB MS ?
