This is not a bug, but the "DEFAULT" setting for their image, as documented at:

<quote>Notes about the process
An attached monitor, mouse and keyboard are expected for these images,
the installation process is all graphical after first reboot and the
images will boot into a graphical netbook session.</quote>

If you wish to change it, so it does output something, add
"console=ttyS2,115200n8" to your boot.scr

Regards,

OR even:

<quote> The console is disabled by default, so don't be surprised to
see just "Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel." at your
console. Please check https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/BeagleEditBootscr to
understand how to activate it (on Panda just change ttyS2 to
ttyO2).</quote>

from the same site.. :wink:

Regards,

Attach a monitor, be happy :slight_smile:

I struggled with the same problem for a long time before realizing the truth
