I've posted this on the support list, but maybe it might be more
relevant here:


I guess this can be interesting for the openmoko as well...

I think the interesting points are the use of readahead, to compile a
monolitic kernel (a very small initrd) and to setup the video mode in
the kernel (that if I understand correctly would save X to re-initialize
the hw...). Then basically boot the kernel, unitialize the video, lunch
udev, dbus, hal, then X and the window manager (say 7 sec, because out
processor is a bit slower). Everything else can be initialize on demand.

hope this helps.
