[beagleboard] Re: is this the official Beaglebone group?

I for one am seeking a serious forum for newbs to
embedded Linux. (Or a mentor!)

I've spent 35 years designing hardware and writing
embedded real-time firmware, but the Beagleboard
is kicking my butt so far.

I don't have any particular design goal in mind
for the BB -- I'm simply using it to learn a bit
about embedded Linux.

A short-term goal is to build and apply my own
cross-compiled kernel to the BB. Then maybe
write a driver to twiddle the LEDs or an IO pin
or something. Or learn how to serve up the
root file system (etc.) via NFS. So much to learn!

I just found out about the BeagleBone Google Group. I've been trying to get a

forum (not mailing list or Google group) setup for BeagleBone for some time, as
newbies are kinda fond of the forum format. The forum would be a categorized
place for newbies and I'd want to keep the beagleboard@googlegroups.com the
primary developer list.
