I am experimenting with using a beaglebone for some production tooling. I would like to use desktop for a nice fancy GUI to show screening results and I also need to have the beaglebone program an MSP430 processor using a TI FET tool.
Well that’s what I want, getting it is another thing. I have a beaglebone and a 7" ldc from circuitco (got it awhile ago) and I’m trying to get a desktop installed. I could go with the Angstrom distribution that comes stock but I’ve tried installing a ubuntu image then LXDE but LXDE hangs on the login screen. I then tried installing ubuntu desktop and got the same results so the stock Angstrom is looking much better now.
I can work with the angstrom distribution but I need a little help in getting the MSPGCC tool chain running on it. I’m strating from near zero, it’s been a long time since I’ve done any linux stuff. Can someone give me a roadmap on what I have to do?
