Running debian from internal BBB flash

Hi all,

I have managed to get my BBB running Debian unstable from a plugin
8G micro SD card. After installing everything I currently need, this
external micro SD card is currently only 16% full.

My understanding is that the internal Flash of the BBB is 2G which
suggests that I should be able to transfer my current install from
the external micro SD card to the internal Flash.

Is this correct? If so, how can I do this?

Cheers,
Erik

I don’t know – but as no-one who does has answered, I’ll suggest looking at this build script: https://github.com/beagleboard/image-builder/blob/master/beagleboard.org_image.sh which builds emmc ‘flasher’ images (as well as normal ones)

Yeah, I got tired of waiting so I documented by setup as well as
possible, reflashed the BBB with a Debain eMMC image and the
reconstructed the setup I wanted.

The script was under:

cd /opt/scripts/tools/

sudo ./beaglebone-black-eMMC-flasher.sh

Cool, thanks. I'll remember that for next time.
