I am new to beagle board xm. I've just spent several days not have
successfully booted it up.
I used the serial-usb cable to connect the console with the computer.
I used an external 5v power supply and a DVI cable to connect to the
screen. I checked that all the power inputs are correct.
I followed some online tutorials to create a 4GB sd card with one
single FAT32 partition. I put all the files which came together with
the original sd card in this partition (ramdisk.gz, MLO, u-boot.bin,
ulmage, user.scr, ramfs.img) with the MLO file been copied first.
Later I also tried to create two partitions with EXT3 being the second
one, and put the ramdisk.gz file in the latter, but still did not work
I also have ran the minicom in Ubuntu with correct specification. (/
dev/ttyUSB0, /var/lock, 115200 8N1, No, No)
I checked the USB port each time before rerun minicom.
But the problem is every time I ran the minicom it was just stuck
there without showing anything but a wired line of "XXXXX60XXXXX". I
have no idea what has possibly gone wrong with all the settings!
I quite suspect that the SD card was not made properly. Is there
anyone suggesting another way to do the SD card? I'd be so much
appreciate your help!
