I just received my BeaglePlay in the mail late yesterday. I noticed right away that the Getting Started guide recommends burning the latest image to SD card and using that for the installation, which I think is the best idea. That being said, I have no way of getting a micro-sd card until next week which is a bummer. I can wait until next week if I need to. But, could you tell me what are the disadvantages of simply using the eMMC that came with the board instead? Or am I mistaken and the
eMMC doesn’t contain an Debian image at all (regardless of the version)?* …and I’ll need to write a Debian image to the eMMC. If that’s the case then I’ll just wait until Monday.
*Note, I am currently in the process of picking up a book to help out with my BeagleBoard, in my case it’s definitely needed.
