I am Beagle board XM user, Hobbyist.
I downloaded the Ubuntu and started using as per instructions in below page
LAN9514 IC is excessively overheating, whenever i run simple TCP Client program.
Before that i done a simple expereiment of connecting GPIO to a breadboard which contains simple Tranistor switch controlling LED ON/Off.I shorted GND of both boards
P17 Gnd pin shorted to breadboard Gnd pin. We use 5V in breadboard.
Is the IC LAN9514 broken? Is excessive over heating indicate same? Do i need to replace IC?
