so I just got my beaglebone black today and when i connect it to a display the display shows a picture of a dog and the words “beaglebone black” for a few seconds. then the display doesn’t receive any more information from the beaglebone and goes to sleep mode.
i installed the newest angström distribution on the beaglebone but still i can’t get the gnome desktop to be displayed on my screen. the only thing that did change was that for a fraction of a second after the picture of a dog there was some white on black text wich i couldn’t read so fast, before the display went to sleep. the following times i rebooted the board only the picture appeared again, not followed by the text.
can anyone tell me how to solve this?
I tried another keyboard but the only key that seems to do something is the power off key.
When i hit it - after like a minute or so - the following text appears on the screen:
ngström Distribution Beaglebone
rom v2012.12 - Kernel 3.8.13
this - like the beaglebone logo when i boot - appears on the top left part of the screen with, as you can see, the leftmost part missing. it appears for a second or so and then the beaglebone powers down.
first i thought ok maybe the image is just not centered on the screen and in fact there would be something displayed after the beaglebone logo as well, but my display has a light wich is blinking when it gets no input so i know there is nothing to display. also i tried another display without any difference…
