I’ve noticed something strange, and I’m hoping there is a simple explaination for what I am seeing. If I take the default image from beaglebone on Angstrom’s website, it takes about 0.3 seconds to uncompress the image during boot. However, when I create a custom kernel which is actually a little smaller because I pulled some of the configurations out that I’m not using, and I use a different boot logo, it takes over 3 seconds to uncompress during boot. What is going on? Why does it take so much longer to uncompress?
I do notice in the rootfs/boot folder there are the following files:
Do these help speed up the uncompression during loading of the kernel?
