Note: Debian armel deb's are compiled for armv4t, this allows debian to support a larger number of arm devices with a single port, at only the sacrifice of speed.

Choose a language
 
  C - No localization

Configure the network:
 
  usb0: USB net <- (usually the OTG port, but could also be the smsc95xx adapter on the beagle and panda)
 
  usb1: USB net <- (usually the smsc95xx adapter on the beagle and panda, when usb0 exist)
 
  eth0: Ethernet <- Your usb-ethernet device
 
  wlan0: Wifi <- Your usb-wifi device.. See [[BeagleBoardDebianWifiInstallInfo]] for my hack to set it up.
 
 
===usb0 howto===
 
There's a lot of question on irc about this, it might make sense to add a wiki page going thru with linux/winxp etc.. --[[User:RobertCNelson|RobertCNelson]] 00:55, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
 
 
Configuring usb0 network bridge for 2.6.29:
 
  While you chose your keyboard layout, setup a bridge with ethX and usbX.
 
  # ifconfig ethX 0.0.0.0
 
  # ifconfig usbX 0.0.0.0
 
  # brctl addbr brX
 
  # brctl addif brX ethX
 
  # brctl addif brX usbX
 
  # ifconfig brX up
 
  # dhclient brX

==== Re-Build Kernel and SGX Kernel Modules ====
+
This image can be written to a 2GB (or larger) microSD card, via 'dd' on linux or the win32 image program linked to on CircuitCo's wiki pageFirst press and hold the boot select button (next to the microSD card), then apply power (same procedure as the official CircuitCo images). The board should boot into Debian and begin flashing the eMMC, once completed all 4 LED's should be full ON. Simply remove power, remove the microSD card and Debian will now boot directly from eMMC.
git clone git://github.com/RobertCNelson/stable-kernel.git
+
  cd stable-kernel
+
git checkout origin/v3.4.x -b v3.4.x
+
./build_kernel.sh (and then follow the directions as the script runs...)
+
  
Build SGX modules
+
Script for reference: (this is the script that writes to the eMMC)
  ./sgx_build_modules.sh
+
  https://github.com/RobertCNelson/boot-scripts/blob/master/tools/eMMC/init-eMMC-flasher-v2.sh
  
Insert SD card, make sure to modify MMC in system.sh
+
BTW: we are only writing about 500 megabytes to the eMMC, so the script will only take about 5-6 Minutes after power on.
./tools/install_image.sh
+
  
Place SD card into Device and boot...
+
Notes:
cd /opt/sgx
+
* If only two LED's stay lit and nothing happens, the board has crashed due to lack of power. Retry with a 5Volt DC power supply connected.
sudo tar xf GFX_4.06.00.03_libs.tar.gz
+
* If the 4 LED's blink a constant pattern, the eMMC write has failed. First REMOVE ALL capes, then retry again.
sudo ./install-sgx.sh
+
** (error -84: which may mean you've reached the max number of erase/write cycles...)

Latest revision as of 21:59, 9 July 2014

This page is about running a (ARM EABIhf) Debian distribution at BeagleBoard. BeagleBoard will boot the (ARM EABIhf) Debian distribution from SD card. Debian's NetInstall will be used to install Debian onto your Beagle.

Help

If you need any help:

  • When asking for help, please provide some debugging information:
    • U-Boot Version installed on board
    • Kernel Version: uname -a
    • pastebin dmesg
      • Copy from serial port or use "dmesg | pastebinit" (sudo apt-get install pastebinit)

Official BeagleBoard.org Images for shipping with BeagleBone Black

Recommended Beagle Software

Mainline U-Boot:

  • All old Ax, Bx, Cx and Dx boards are required to upgrade to at least these U-Boot versions.
  • XM Boards have no NAND, so MLO/u-boot.img is always required on the first partition
  • Directions: Upgrade X-loader and U-Boot

Debian NetInstall

Scripts:

git clone https://github.com/RobertCNelson/netinstall.git
cd netinstall

Device Options:

BeagleBoard --dtb omap3-beagle
BeagleBoard xM --dtb omap3-beagle-xm
BeagleBone (serial) --dtb am335x-bone-serial
BeagleBone (video via cape) --dtb am335x-bone-video
BeagleBone Black --dtb am335x-boneblack
PandaBoard (A1->A3) --dtb omap4-panda
PandaBoard (A4->Ax) --dtb omap4-panda-a4
PandaBoard ES  --dtb omap4-panda-es

You will need a 1GB SD card or greater.

Standard System : ~455MB
+ Desktop environment (GNOME) : ~2.9GB

Debian Wheezy

Quick Install script for "board"

sudo ./mk_mmc.sh --mmc /dev/sdX --dtb "board" --distro wheezy-armhf

So For the BeagleBoard xM:

sudo ./mk_mmc.sh --mmc /dev/sdX --dtb omap3-beagle-xm --distro wheezy-armhf
  • Options:
    • --firmware : installs firmware
    • --serial-mode : debian-installer uses Serial Port

Install Image:

Quick install script for [board]

sudo ./setup_sdcard.sh --mmc /dev/sdX --dtb board

board options:

  • BeagleBoard Ax/Bx/Cx/Dx - omap3-beagle
  • BeagleBoard xM - omap3-beagle-xm
  • BeagleBone/Black - beaglebone
  • OMAP5432 uEVM - omap5-uevm

So for the BeagleBoard xM:

sudo ./setup_sdcard.sh --mmc /dev/sdX --dtb omap3-beagle-xm

Advanced: Build Image:

Built with a fork of project-rootstock (ARM native mode, runs directly on BeagleBoard), using a script from omap-image-builder:

git clone https://github.com/RobertCNelson/omap-image-builder.git
cd omap-image-builder
git checkout v2014.07 -b tmp

Stable:

./RootStock-NG.sh -c rcn-ee_console_debian_stable_armhf

Testing:

./RootStock-NG.sh -c rcn-ee_console_debian_testing_armhf

Flasher

eMMC: BeagleBone Black

This image can be written to a 2GB (or larger) microSD card, via 'dd' on linux or the win32 image program linked to on CircuitCo's wiki page. First press and hold the boot select button (next to the microSD card), then apply power (same procedure as the official CircuitCo images). The board should boot into Debian and begin flashing the eMMC, once completed all 4 LED's should be full ON. Simply remove power, remove the microSD card and Debian will now boot directly from eMMC.

Script for reference: (this is the script that writes to the eMMC)

https://github.com/RobertCNelson/boot-scripts/blob/master/tools/eMMC/init-eMMC-flasher-v2.sh

BTW: we are only writing about 500 megabytes to the eMMC, so the script will only take about 5-6 Minutes after power on.

Notes:

  • If only two LED's stay lit and nothing happens, the board has crashed due to lack of power. Retry with a 5Volt DC power supply connected.
  • If the 4 LED's blink a constant pattern, the eMMC write has failed. First REMOVE ALL capes, then retry again.
    • (error -84: which may mean you've reached the max number of erase/write cycles...)
