[beagleboard] setting up s video

I recommend you search the mailing list for S-Video, there are some kernel patches out there that could get you S-Video output on Angstrom.

You can also just use the board validation kernel that is on the code.google.com/p/beagleboard site. That kernel fork is not being progressed, but it will let you see the S-Video output.

When Mamona was first demonstrated on the BeagleBoard, they did Firefox output over S-Video. Unfortunately, I haven’t heard much about Mamona since.

Hi, Sir:
When I am compiling the x-loader, arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc is needed.
Could you help me to find out where can get arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc.
Thanks
Frank

How to Build kernel

Step 1) cd to kernel git repository and clean the kernel build folder
make CROSS_COMPILE=arm-none-linux-gnueabi- distclean

or make CROSS_COMPILE=//arm-none-linux-gnueabi- distclean

get it? or make CROSS_COMPILE=~/CodeSourcery/Sourcery G++ Lite/bin/ arm-none-linux-gnueabi- distclean for windowsXP it’s C:\Program Files\CodeSourcery\Sourcery G++ Lite\bin
Step 2) Set ZOOM or SDP as default platform configuration by
make CROSS_COMPILE=/CodeSourcery/Sourcery G++ Lite/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi- omap_ldp_defconfig
or make CROSS_COMPILE=/CodeSourcery/Sourcery G++ Lite/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi- omap_3430sdp_defconfig
Step 3) Compile the source code and generate the binary by
make CROSS_COMPILE=/CodeSourcery/Sourcery G++ Lite/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi- uImage
Kernel binary uImage will be generated at arch/arm/boot/ directory.
Note that mkimage tool is needed to generate uImage file.

Hi, Dear all:
When I am making uImage, it will the error message like “mkimage” command not found", how to get “mkimage” command installed? I have copied the info as below.
Thank you very much for help in advance.
Frank

If your using one of the *.deb based os's (debian, ubuntu) install uboot-mkimage

sudo apt-get install uboot-mkimage

Hi, Robert:
My os is ubuntu 8.04 but the command did not work.
Thank you very much

Strange, I guess they just added it in intrepid (8.10)

http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/utils/uboot-mkimage

Okay, plan B.. (just needs gcc installed)

wget http://beagleboard.googlecode.com/files/u-boot_beagle_revb.tar.gz
tar -xf u-boot_beagle_revb.tar.gz
cd u-boot/
make CROSS_COMPILE= distclean
make CROSS_COMPILE= omap3530beagle_config
make CROSS_COMPILE= tools

Then, cd into your kernel directory and add this to path:

PATH=/home/<user>/u-boot/tools/:"${PATH}"

then back to what you had done....
cd linux*****
make uImage

Regards,

Hi, Robert:
I have installed mkimage using the second method.
Thank you very much
Frank
