Hi y’all. There’s this hacker who recently created a 200 lines linux kernel patch that does wonders which made Linus Torvalds happy. Anyway, while browsing the internet last Sunday I came across this blog post (warning: it’s in Portuguese!) which promises to make your Linux Desktop faster without forcing the user to apply a patch onto the kernel and then recompile it. So I decided to get my hands dirty and follow all the steps and I am now happy with the results so I figured I should share it with you guys. It seems this tip was originally created by some fedora developer (I’m not sure though).
Ok, long story short, let’s do it!
Open up a terminal window and edit (use any editor you like, in my case I used nano which is my favorite command line one) the file /etc/rc.local with the following command:
sudo nano /etc/rc.local
Now insert the following lines before the ‘exit 0’ line
-t cgroup cgroup
