[beagleboard] Re: Angstrom on Beaglebone Black (Switched to Ubuntu)

Hi Richard

I am newb to Linux building and I am interested in comparing quality of instructions and support as any cutomer might evaluate who to choose. in this case best way to build/change kernel and it works for next customer

This was really easy and painless http://www.ti.com/tool/linuxezsdk-sitara

more HW is exposed via capes(daughter cards)

I like the Starterware for bare bones as it shows what you need to do from reset to get the Cortex A8 . U-boot shows same its just easier to see that to get to main you need maybe a dozen source files all obvious in a GUI and then build from bottom up

Really interesting to here how people compare building linux in these different ways and what kind of success they had on changing the kernel and getting it to work

Please share
