Submission + - 1 second embedded Linux QT boot (youtube.com)

frogboyflips writes: MPC Data have produced an impressive swiftboot demo which shows a Linux kernel booting and launching a QT application in less than one second (with video capture and render). This was shown at the Renesas DevCon and is a demonstration of how you can optimise the cold boot of an embedded device by removing unused functionality and optimising required functionality. The greatest challenge here was with QT — however these were overcome with techniques such as re-ordering the contents of the ELF executable, removing read-ahead in the flash filesystem and linking against uClibc. More details will be described at a boot time presentation at ELCE next week.
