[I have not seen this discussed yet. I am starting to think it may be just me.]
[This is from memory as I am not near the boards any more.]
I have BBB A5 w/ production image (just got it yesterday)
I have Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit host
I have Firefox 18.0.2 (stock Ubuntu browser)
I boot the BBB w/ only a USB cable.
I get the storage, network, and serial devices. (cool)
serial port works*
I verified that I have a new ethN and it is 192.168.7.1 (cool) and I can ping 192.168.7.2.
(I also verified that I can ssh into the board.)
I browse to the start.htm file on BBB mount.
I click the link for http://192.168.7.2/
The page gets served fine.
It auto checkmarks the first two item in the todo list. (have to look into how this is done)
The top of the page say something like: “do you know that this page can be interactive?” and gives me a place to put an IP address.
Looking at the screen shots I believe this is suppose to show something like “Verified connection, your bone is SN XYZ and at IP address 192.168.7.2”
None of the scripts really do anything even after I put in the IP address. Cloud9 IDE starts and lets me edit files but I can’t run anything w/ that either.
I suspect some low level thing like Socket.IO is not working on 64 bit Linux.
(I do have ia32-libs installed)
I was able to run Cloud9 scripts on the stock BB A6A a few days ago but I can’t swear the setup was the same. It was still Ubuntu 12.04 & Firefox 18 and I think that machine is 64 bit.
Any commiserators? Any suggestions?
- serial port verification
(The serial port shows up as /dev/ttyACM0 on the host and something like /dev/ttyGS0 on the BBB side. I verified that it works using echo & cat from the BBB side while running screen on the host side. It would be nice if BBB boot would start a getty on the /dev/ttyGS0 device.)
