beaglenmt v1.5 release for BBB and BBW

Hello everyone,

I wanted to make a release announcement for beaglenmt v1.5 (“beaglebone network multitool”): a lightweight (100mb), X11-free, and networking-centric server distribution for BeagleBones based on buildroot. I’ve been maintaining and running it for a little over a year, but it has stayed off the radar. With the BBB in the hands of more people now, I thought I would promote it a bit.

More information and a pre-built SD card image are available at http://vsdev.me/projects/beaglenmt/ . Also on that page are the complete instructions to build beaglenmt from scratch, which may be of interest to anyone else that wants to put together their own distribution based on buildroot, or build a fresh kernel for BBB / BBW.

Many thanks to buildroot ( http://buildroot.uclibc.org/ ) for making this so easy.

Thanks,

Hi Richard. I haven’t seen this error before… Did you checkout the 3.8 patchset of beagleboard kernel before building? I was on commit fba875a of it when I built the kernel, and the latest seems to be 2 commits up.

Thanks,
