So I noticed I ordered a BB without the RTC on it. (or at least the battery for it) Can someone push me in the right direction of parts needed / commands needed (if any) to get this working?
Perhaps a link to digikey battery holder? Has someone documented the process of placing this? ETc?
I suggest you look in the System Reference Manual http://beagleboard.org/static/BBSRM_latest.pdf on page 116.
So this is the guy right:
Looks like digi is back ordered a bit. But no matter.
If you know what you are doing, then you can use other batteries as well. Just make sure they are of the same chemistry and are rechargeable.
