Image for beagleboard xm

Hi all,
I’m a newbie to all linux stuff… so I need some help…
I’ve compiled the u-boot and kernel using this tutorial:

I was wondering how to change the lines:

~/kernel/kernel$ make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi- uImage-dtb.am335x-bone
~/kernel/kernel$ make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi- uImage-dtb.am335x-boneblack

to fit my beagleboard xM? and what does is compile? I mean the uImage was already compiled…

I also made a file system using Narcissus.

so I wanted to know how to prepare the SD-card? I thought about using this tutorial:

but there they are using all images from Narcissus… will it work? how do I load the modules I compiled?


Hi again,

I found that to fit my beagleboard i’ll have to:

/kernel/kernel$ make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi- uImage-dtb.omap3-beagle

so I've compiles the uImage-dtb, but I don't know where to put it in the SD card, can anyone help? 
like I asked before - how to prepare the SD please?

Thanks again.. :)

I am not sure what OS you want but he explains how to format the SD card and install ubuntu.


I’d rather use Angstrom because it is recommended with the beagle board…
Does anyone know how to create the SD with the images compiled with ?
