Speeding up Workbench startup?

First question - Startup-Sequence launches a second CLI? Is that necessary, and, if not, what line do I edit to stop that?

quickest possible startup-sequence:

Code:
setpatch
loadwb
endcli

Accurate. Very accurate.

Can I speed up startup, without losing functionality? And if so, how?

The only WB which launches a second CLI during startup is 1.3.

Which functionality do you miss?

Perhaps so:

Code:
SetPatch
System/SetMap d
Resident CLI L:Shell-Seg SYSTEM PURE ADD
Mount NEWCON:
LoadWB
EndCLIi
(d is the German keymap, for Canada you'd probably use cdn or something)

Sorry, didn't realize it had been so long.

Ok, there seems to be miscommunication on what I'm asking.

Is it possible to change startup-sequence so that the end results are the same, but the internal path is faster?

No. They wouldn't have done it like this if it could be done better. You only can remove things you don't need.


If you boot from floppy disk, I got very nice results by optimizing the disk with DosControl. It does not only defragment but also arranges the blocks on disk in the order they are loaded during boot. The result is that you hear almost no drive clicking during boot and it is quite fast.

You might use replacements like LoadMonDrvs and env-handler for slight speedup. A RAD can be used for fast boot time if you have enough RAM. Storing files on a media like CF, SSD should make boot really fast.

Ups... but at least the RAD stuff should work. I used it on my A500 1.3 for faster WB booting.
