Tweaking Gentoo

Here are a couple of ways to tweak the performance of a Gentoo Linux install:

  1. Prelinking: This improves load times of shared libraries. It is especially useful for application suites that use a large number of shared libraries like KDE.
  2. Using NPTL: The Native Posix Thread Library (NPTL) improves the performance of multi-threaded applications. The performance of Java based applications like Tomcat, Orion and Azureus have visibly improved with NPTL.
