So you have your Beagleboard XM and have tried Linux. Why not try out
It is very simple to do. You need to put two files onto the primary
partition of the micro SD card which will cayse RISC OS to be started
rather than Linux and you need to put three files onto a pendrive
(which is no more than 2Gbytes in size).
Plug the pendrive into one of the four USB sockets and make sure a
keyboard and mouse are also plugged in. Then reset the Beagleboard XM.
At the prompt type 'Exec RunMe' and RISC OS will start.
The new MLO/U-boot.bin combination on the SD card now provided uses
files UIMAGE and uEnv.txt rather than boot.scr and user.scr. The RISC
OS rom has not yet been packaged into a uImage and it is not clear
meanwhile where the commands 'fatload ...' and 'go' (which load and
execute RISC OS) now need to go. For the present the older MLO and u-
boot.bin need still to be used. The issue is not related to the
revision C board (which did need a minor tweak to the RISC OS rom) but
to the new SD card image now being provided.
Featuring the project http://beagleboard.org/project/riscos/
on the homepage under 'Top Projects' would be most welcome too. It's
gaining increased momentum already but a bit more exposure certainly
