Inspired by the "How fast" video, I've recently been trying to speed up my boot up as much as possible.
I've been reading many forums on different approaches but recently hit a wall with a particular problem. I've turned on verbose boot, and everything seems to move through incredibly fast except at one point, it pauses for about ten seconds on something that looks like:
'Begin running /scripts/init/bottom.... done'
Is there a reason why it is stopping at this particular point for so long? It displays "done" almost immediately. For the record, it's a fresh install.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I displayed the scripts that ran at startup with

Sorry that I couldn't copy the exact bit of code it was stuck on, I've been searching through the log files in /var/log via the "Find" function, but so far I've been unable to find anything.
I have found many different boot log files, but none which displays /init/bottom I mentioned above.
