Objectives

Our goal is to implant a specific game application into Beagleboard and using Microsoft's Kinect to play with it. We would firstly make the Kinect recognizable to the Beagleboard. And then try to adapt the application to the Beagleboard. We haven't decided which game to play with, because the performance may be greatly influenced by what kind of operating system we want to use, or the size of this game. So the second part would be to test what is the best option for us. Finally, we would try everything to make it work.

Executive Summary

Installation Instructions

Burn the Image Package and Boot the System

The detailed instruction is shown in page7 of developer's guide from omek.

When I tried to run mkcard.sh to create new partitions, I got some errors.

One of the error is the shell script is asumming that first partition of device "mmc" is "mmc1" but it's "mmcp1" in my Ubuntu. I changed the shell script to fix this but still got some errors about the partition specs.

Finally I found a tricky way to use the shell script directly. If I use a external USB card reader to read and write the microsd card, everything just works perfectly. I think maybe the author of shell script had a different verison of Linux or only tested the script on descktop with external card reader.
