[root@localhost pie]# yum -y install preload
Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit
Package preload-0.6.4-6.fc19.i686 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do


[root@localhost pie]# yum -y install readahead
Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit
No package readahead available.
Error: Nothing to do

Is there a place available to get it from? I am on first evening with Fedora after 6 hours of Chemo today, I need this distro to work with me!

systemd has it's own readahead service implemented, which is normally enabled by default. To enable it, run these commands:

systemctl enable systemd-readahead-collect.service
systemctl enable systemd-readahead-replay.service

Also see the Fedora Wiki systemd page.
