Rev B's are no longer produced, Rev C3 is the current shipping version.

There is no Ubuntu 9.10 release yet.

Thanks to Robert Nelson’s efforts, I have Ubuntu 9.04 running very fine on my Beagle revC. Wireless works like a charm (I’ve had a horrible fighting time fixing wireless issues on Angstrom). Most of the applications that I use work pretty fine - I’ve had trouble rebuilding them for Angstrom.

What I wish would be working (its only logical that these will be, very soon):

  • media playout using the best of DSP provided by the board
  • tvout on svideo

its not stable yet but u can download the alpha version its called karmic koala, Ihar
