Performance of Beagle Board XM


I have just received an Beagle board XM and the performance was very
slow :

1. need about 4 minutes to boot up
2. need 10 seconds to run application, such as default browser,
move player, file manager ;
3. playing the video looks like playing a slideshow, ie 4-5 seconds
output a picture and without audio sound.

Did I miss some important steps or driver? Please advice.
Many thanks in advance.


Did you create your own SD Card or use on that came with the board?
Which xM revision and kernel version? What are your boot arguments?


Mine takes about 4s (uboot) + 5s (kernel) + 3s (userspace):

That's angstrom running on an xM rev C with kernel 3.0
