Does anyone use calico instead of flannel with k3s?
I can observe the node is taking far more time to start with calico than with flannel (pods are running after 200s instead of 30s).
Any clue on how to fix that?

I guess because flannel code is included in the k3s binary whereas calico code is not. Therefore, containerd needs to pull the calico images

Regarding the image, I use airgapped images, so no pulling time.
Regarding the code being included, I though about it, and calico-node starts as a pod (and calico isn't a single component as flannel), so you are right, but I am not sure this is the only reason.
