Look I’m no idiot. I know that debian 10.3 is debian buster.
Then why the hell does the /etc/apt/sources.list list jessie?
What is wrong here?
That’s not all
The gettings started pages were all outdated and a real pain…
Turns out I need to call
sudo modprobe ftdi_sio
to be able to get networking via usb working. It does not say so on the getting started page.
The whole “share internet with device” is also a pain.
Turns out that Robert Nelson’s writeup here…
sudo iptables -A FORWARD -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
At this point I’m really disappointed.
Maybe the stuff worked 4 years ago. But currently the getting started stuff, and real information, is just fragmented an missing.
If you’re Robert Nelson, then stuff will work fine. But I thought beaglebone was targeted at new users as well (ha it was… 4 or more years ago). Now it is just anger-provoking, that the getting started stuff just does not work properly.
Have you ever though about that?
Do you actually realized how really bad the situation is?
Please: get some students to work through your getting started guides, and (after having them tell you how much is sucks), get them to improve it (by letting them contact Robert Nelson).
PS: my host is linux. So definately also get some students to work on a linux host.
