Preparing SD Card for Ubuntu Image

lets see 2 minute delay, with an ubuntu root filesystem.

I bet you do not have your Ethernet plugged in..

already available in my boot args.
Are there any additional steps that need to be taken to get kernel debug messages on the serial ports.

Regards,

sorry for direct post but i have a question regarding kernel booting
i had install a new kernel ( linux-image-3.2.0.49-omap ) on my Beagleboard-XM with this command

sudo apt-get install linux-image-3.2.0.49-omap
it get successfully installed with complete module but when it get boot and power on.
and after run a command uname -r it is still showing me older kernel version which is 3.6.8.x4.
my question is how to boot my new kernel which is recently installed i know that it will require some u-boot or boot-loader but i doesn’t find any update regarding this issue for your kind information it generates initrd.img and System.config file but doesn’t generate any file called uImage or zimage

"sudo flash-kernel 3.2.0.49-omap"

Thank you , I am able to enable the serial port output.
I did login as user : ubuntu password : temppwd

I tried to change by - > passwd root ,but not possible it seems.

May I know the password for root ?

ubuntu by default does not create a root user...

Regards,

Is it possible to create rootfs with root user option ?

"sudo su"

Regards,

I have gone through this link to create the rootfs from scratch https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/RootfsFromScratch , is this correct ?

if wrong , could you point me to the link with the steps to create root file-system from scratch.

No one maintains "rootstock" anymore... Those instructions are
old/outdated/etc...

if wrong , could you point me to the link with the steps to create root
file-system from scratch.

If you "really" want to create a root file system from scratch.. Look
up a tool called 'debootstrap'...
