I will let you know, how easy it is in your linux script world.
Hi Walter, thanks for you feedback..
I'm sorry your having so much trouble, as the author of that wiki I'm
kinda stuck between rock and a hardplace.. If i make the directions
too simple, i get flamed for not having every step, and then if it's
too complex this happens.. So I'll never win.. So if your interested
in making the wiki better for new users, can you please reply with
these questions, remember i'm just a member of the community so
without feedback NOTHING changes...
First trial: Preconfigured demo image:
I followed Robert´s advice, have to download a lot of commands, tons of
objects, cross compiler, etc.
Finally I got the kernel generation run, but endet with 1 Error. Maybe wrong
eabi, parameter ???
Why are you rebuilding anything with the preconfigured demo?
i have written: "If you'd like to help make these images better:
Kernel:" then i link to the source to rebuild the kernel.. HOW do you
want to me reword that so that you don't rebuild the kernel...
Next paragraph: http://elinux.org/BeagleBoardUbuntu#Precise_12.04_armhf
I give a changelog, skip over..
then Download via:
(some error checking so that you have the correct file, moving on..)
Extract, change into the dir, then run the script.. what did you do here?
Next step:Netinstall method, seems easier to me
Put a fresh SD card in, clone the git and start ./setup_sdcard.sh ...
Huch, unknown command and no setsd_card.sh on my computer. Why it is not in
Sorry that's my mistake the command is mk_mmc.sh, that's been like
that for over a year and NO ONE noticed.. (Justed updated the wiki..)
Research in Google, found routine on Robert´s web.
Could not startet it via ./ so I startet it with bash setup_sdcard.sh
And got error: no armel-rootfs-* ...
And this is the point to give up for today.
You see this is a snapshoot from the easy script life of a linux newcomer.
Have fun with your scrips
Thanks for the feedback...
