Hi all,

Finally i am able to boot the linux through MMC
boot.

“FINALLY” is bit worrying, was it so difficult to boot Linux on Beagle? Where do you think we need to improve to enable freshers with all relevant content?

Any experiences you want to share to help us fixing the issues you faced, can you give some FAQs

Now i want run some demos on Beagle board , Can any one
tell me where can i download the demos and how to run on the
board ( procedure)

We have angstrom running on beagle, the rootfs can be downloaded from http://amethyst.openembedded.net/~koen/beagleboard/demo/

The setup is to have a USB HUB connected with all the required peripherals like USB Keyboard, Mouse, etc

You can even try some video and audio playback as described in beagleboard validation

We should be having ubuntu and Maemo running, but I don’t know any external links for the same.

Hi Kashim,

I don’t have a board yet. Outside of US. The instructions look pretty straightforward to me. However it would be nice to have some videos of the unpacking, setting up and testing of the board. Just an idea. If i had a board i know id be doing some vids :wink: visual aids are always very helpful.

All the best,

Thanks for your comment, will do it.
