Where to find stock Ansgtrom image for BeagleBone White?

I messed up my SD card and need to restore the O/S.

But the image found in http://beagleboard.org/latest-images/ requires a 4GB SD card. Where can I find the stock distribution that fit on the 2GB SDcard?

The link in the eLinux Wiki (http://www.elinux.org/Beagleboard:BeagleBone#Revision_A6A_Image) refers to a file on circuitco.com that is no longer available.

P.S. I did succesfully install Debian, which fits on the 2GB SDcard, but there is not enough room left to install emacs, let alone my own files. And I suspect I’ll have a similar problem if I switch to the 4GB SDcard as the latest Angstrom distribution image is 3.8GB

Note due to some "2GB" being smaller then others, the "2GB" image is
more around "1.7GB". You can expand the system and get more space via:

http://elinux.org/Beagleboard:BeagleBoneBlack_Debian#Expanding_File_System_Partition_On_A_microSD

Or just use a 4GB microSD card.

Remember the official debian image has a lot of other stuff installed
to meet everyone's requirements, so you can always remove stuff.

I believe the card that shipped with BeagleBone White required a 4GB
card. You can use the 2GB Debian image on a BeagleBone White.

Hopefully CircuitCo will respond. If the consult with me on an image
update, I always place the image on my s3 mirror which I believe to be
highly stable and reliable. The 2013-06-20 image is newer than the
ones they have and I believe if you did find that old image, it'd
still be a 4GB image.

You can always use Angstrom to make a new image.

You should delete /usr/share/doc to give yourself some room. Having
room for the docs is why we've shifted Rev C to 4GB.

The Angstrom image is 3.8GB, but that isn't all full. There is a fair
amount of room within the Angstrom image on a 4GB SD card.

I think this suggest that you have been confusing the size of the
image (which is sized to the full disk image size) with the amount of
free space within the image.

No plans for any updates to image on Beaglebone White from a shipping standpoint…

There are an assortment of images in the Angstrom distribution archive:

image (which is sized to the full disk image size) with the amount of
free space within the image.

Indeed!

I’ve confirmed (by peeling off the sticker) that the SDcard that shipped with the BBW is indeed a 4GB card.

However, a ‘df’ after booting a freshly-written 2GB Debian image produces this output:

root@beaglebone:~# df

That’s a total of 2,098,278 1K-blocks – or 2GB. Where did the other 2GB go??

cd /opt/scripts/tools/
sudo ./grow_partition.sh
<reboot>
