Hi all, I'm running ubuntu 11.10 on a beagleboard and doing some image processing from a webcam with OpenCV with a C++ app I have written. It works well on the laptop it was developed on but it's a bit slow on the beagleboard so I'm trying to optimize things so it'll run smoother. I would also like to optimize the boot time of Ubuntu on the BB.
My question is what are the major things I can do? Right now I'm thinking disabling the GUI/HDMI out would be a big help so what's the best way to do that? I'm logging in over a serial connection so I'm not using any video output of the BB.
Also, is it possible to disable the network manager entirely or any other services that I most likely wont need to help speed up the boot process?
Maybe I should try running a lighter version of ubuntu altogther? Any help would be much appreciated.
