tweaking with Asus S200

P2252737
(Italie.Venice)

Searched some information on the internet to better utilize the 128 RAM on my s200.
Firstly, I turned off GDM service.
Instead, startx is executed (with icewm window manager) from command line,
everytime I turn on my s200.
It's said that GDM consumes quite some memory usage.
Secondly, I commented unnecessary ttys.
In general, one tty is enough for me.
Nevetheless, I kept two, just in case.

For improving the startup time, I turned off usplash too,
by modifying menu.list of grub service.

Now life's getting better with s200.

However, once firefox is launched, the hdd keeps making noise all the time.
only 128MB..... still a pain in the xxx.

騎士團長殺人事件 --村上春樹

今年的日文小說看完了。篇幅很長,但規模不大,故事都繞著幾個主要的人物。情節裡有些超現實的場景,但最後卻讓人有點意猶未盡,因為有些想搞懂的疑點,在還沒講清之前就結束了。
