What the title says.
I've used a 1x 2GB card and a class 6 4GB card and the difference in boot time is minimal to non-existant.Tom` said:I don't think you can make any general statement here - the SD "class" ratings are based on write speed, not read (which would probably be more relevant for boot times), and are only a guaranteed minimum anyway - actual cards can vary quite a bit. It might be more productive to actually list specific cards, if not actual tested speeds.
Well, I do it so I have a clean install for testing, and an SD install for general use and program compilation. Had to build so many things from source. I only need to boot if I've had out of memory issues, at other times, the battery life is good enough and I'm near enough to the mains. Rebooted in the time it took to write this.daffy said:
My nand is the beta HF4 (100727?), SD is HF3, so not really different. I also have a spare experimental kernel on SD. and swapfile on SD (which seems to be in play at the moment, and it's all gone very un-responsive - typed 'make' 5 hours ago...)MonkeyChops said:do you run the same image from the sd or do you boot a different distro?
I run the Pandora Angstrom image HF3 on the SD card, and I update the NAND when official (non-beta) hotfixes come out. I have also run Debian Sid, and Lubuntu off the SD card as well. I ran into driver issues, but they do work, and it's not hard at all to do. If someone more talented at the kernel level stuff than I am were to give it a try... I'm sure we'd have Debian and Ubuntu images that were fully compatible with Pandora Angstrom in no time.MonkeyChops said:do you run the same image from the sd or do you boot a different distro?
