Here are instructions on how to set up your host computer and BeagleBoard.

Setting up Linux on your host computer

Tools.svg Give to the community: Networking via Bridged
I've been able to get networking via NAT working, but I don't know how to network via Bridged.
Tools.svg Give to the community: VMware Workstation
I need instructions on installing using VMware workstation. Rose students can also get VMware Workstation for free, but they often run out of keys. Do this:
  1. go to [[1]]
  2. Login
  3. In the middle column click on ROSEportal.
  4. Click on the VMware Global Education on the top right.
Tools.svg Give to the community: Virtual Box
Many are using Virtual Box[[2]]. I need instructions on how to install and use it.
Tools.svg Give to the community: Other Linux distros
You are welcome to use Linux distributions other Ubuntu. If you do so, I may not be able to help you. Please document what you have to do differently when using your distro so others will benefit.

Getting Started Hints

Here are some useful links of getting things going.

  • Linux Hints for Beagle[[3]], hints on handling video and USB devices.
  • Precompiled Angstrom Distribution[[4]], this is a good starting place to get Linux running on your Beagle. It's all pre-compiled and ready to run. The instructions below will point you to here.Yoder 15:03, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
