I wonder if anyone with experience of installing and using prelink would
tell me whether they've found it worthwhile or not. Also, is the process
irrevocable in practice, or can I back out and uninstall if it doesn't
work that well?
I am using prelink regurlarly on my installation (prelink -avmR). The effect
you have depends on the concerned software. Look at the log-file to see for
what applications prelinking worked successful.
Until yet I haven´t found any negative consequences. If you don´t want to
use it any longer you can simply remove it without fearings. BTW: The best
performance gain I got with oooprelink which made the starting process of
openoffice very fast.
