Bug#580930: [SQUEEZE] add a note about parallel boot

Package: release-notes
Severity: wishlist
Tags: squeeze


If 'CONCURRENCY=makefile' is default I think it's obvious that it should 
be mentioned, but I think it's also worth mentioning as a possibility 
for admins to experiment with, something like (immediately following the 
dependency based boot):

The dependency based booting also allows starting services in parallel, 
which under circumstances can improve the boot speed. In order to enable 
it the line:


has to be added to /etc/default/rcS.

This feature has not been enabled for squeeze because it can prevent 
some daemons from starting in specific configurations or, in some very 
rare cases, even make the entire system unbootable.
