Of course it's very possible that some scripts just do not run because
of syntax errors ;)
That sounds allmost too good to be true ;) I need to try that on
a vm tonight.
Michael and me found the script that saved the seconds in only throwing a
syntax error: /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup
So to summarize: with the hacks I applied /bin/sh symlink doesn't matter to
boot time at all - that's what I always believed no matter what debian/ubuntu
Of course it's little suprising, after all there are 35 /bin/sh processes and
66 /bin/bash processes according to preload trace. So even if we replaced the
other 66 (a lot of those are user processes that are likely run with the login
shell), still no gain.
So if performance is any kind of argument, I suggest Guido changes his
monitoring scripts to use /bin/dash directly ;)
I still believe that we should treat bash scripts labeled as /bin/sh as bugs,
but Michael is right that it doesn't justify a fatal error. Then again, we
urgently need some kind of rpmlint statistic for our packages available.
