Boot-Time Optimization

Posted: June 7, 2010 in neo-geo minicab

I have done some modifications to speed up the boottime:
* cleaned/minimized the linux kernel to 1mb
* now using a uncompressed kernel
* changed the ‘jffs2’ rootfs to ‘yaffs2’
* tweaked the ‘u-boot’ bootloader.

Boottime from turning-on the mini2440 to a linux console prompt is now 4 seconds!
