The purpose of this exercise is to introduce you to the BeagleBoard as a workstation. First we'll set up the network. Then you can take some time to explore it.

Setting up the network

beagle$ ifconfig usb0 172.31.1.yy netmask up


  1. Check out the various menus. See what's there.
  2. Open a terminal window and try some commands.

We'll be spending some time in the exercises folder. It contains all the support files. Try this:

beagle$ cd ~/exercises
beagle$ ls
beagle$ git pull

The exercises folder is a git repository. The last command above checks to be sure the repository is up to date. Feel free to explore the various folders.


beagle$ cd ~/exercises
beagle$ gedit helloworld.c &
beagle$ gcc hellowworld.c
beagle$ ./a.out

Congratulations! You've just compiled and run your first BeagleProgram.
