Issues reading and writing the startup.log file

It may just be me, but I've had issues with e4rat-collect and e4rat-preload determining the location for the startup.log file, which defaults to /var/lib/e4rat/startup.log. Manually editing the source code, I would replace the portion where the string is read (Config::get<std::string>("startup_log_file").c_str()) with a hard-coded version of the location. This seems to work around the issue. CubeTheThird (talk) 20:08, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

What is in your config? -- Lahwaacz (talk) 21:49, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
I had tried leaving the default, as well as manually setting the config file to /var/lib/e4rat/startup.log. Neither of these worked. Hard-coding the location into the files did, though I still needed to manually create the file for it to be written to. CubeTheThird (talk) 22:07, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Need for cleanup

I have made additions to the page in regards to the e4rat-lite package re-added to the AUR. I do however feel many entries on this page should be removed, as (in my experience) neither e4rat or bootchart work as-is. I am however leaving the information regarding them intact for legacy purposes, however I do not know whether or not the information present can be considered useful.
