Does every fast load program get loaded into memory at the startup?
I do think so. At least they must be pre-loaded into memory, if not started... I'm sure the Linux gurus out there will give you more details, but basically, yes, that's what fast load is made for:you lose quite some time once (at the boot) instead of having to wait every time you launch those applications.
The box isn't checked and the error has gone
So far, so good! Don't touch anything, now!
I would like to see what is loading. Is there a way to check? My Zaurus use to be so quick. Maybe I need to defrag it or something.
I don't know if you can defrag the filesystem, or if there's need to do it. As for seeing what is loading, I fear that the Qtopia start isn't particularly verbose, and I'm not sure this can be fixed without the sources and a good programming knowledge. But you can see what is running once the boot is finished with the ps -ax
command, or the top
command (I'm not sure if this one is builtin in the Sharp ROM, though, you might have to download and install it first).
