Been an interesting weekend with many different versions flashed (or sometimes not) into the eMMC.
I have this currently running well from the 32MB SD card from the img link above.
debian@beaglebone:~$ uname -a
Linux beaglebone 4.19.94-ti-r63 #1buster SMP PREEMPT Fri May 14 16:42:32 UTC 2021 armv7l GNU/Linux
There is on issue I've run into that has caused a lot of grief and retries. That's the behavior of the USB port on and after boot.
I have two monitors and an IOGEAR GUS402 USB 2.0 peripheral sharing device. Press a button and it switches the keyboard and mouse between my main workstation and whatever module I'm currently working on; BBB, Pi3, Pi4, PiZeroW.
Between that and the BBB I've been using a 4 port USB hub. One from ANKER which is a USB 3.0 hub and one from INSIGNIA a 4 port USB 2.0 hub with separate power adaptor. The BBB doesn't like the 3.0 hub very much.
Using the 4 port USB 2.0 hub if the IOGEAR isn't switched to present the keyboard and mouse to the Beagle during boot after that, although the screen shows the desktop, the mouse pointer remains in the middle of the screen and mouse and keyboard don't work.
If I've booted with the switch set so the keyboard and mouse are visible to the BBB then after that I can switch back and forth between the workstation and the beagle.
I've attached the serial port boot log and also the dmesg log that shows usb isn't ready. What's missing so that it will find a usb device when it's plugged in?
