    We're nerds with no life! Need help - ask! I will try help, or arrange someone else to help!
    I am generally on all the time.

    Hi,

    I bought Beagle-board xM recently and tried to test it by connecting to my Linux PC using a null-modem serial port cable. Just after connecting, I gave
    >minicom -o -s -w
    Then using serial port setup, i set it for
    115200 bps, 8N1 (8 bit with 1 stop bit).
    Both Hardware & Software flow control - No.

    Saved the set up as df1. Then powered the Beagle-board, I could see lot of boot related messages and Angstrom OS also loading. (Some time I powered the Beagle-board before doing the minicom setup also).
    At the end asked for user name. When I tried to enter using my system key-board, same is not reflected in my system display and there is no response from Beagle-board also.

    I would like to know how to enable beagle-board xM to respond to my entering of user-name and some where it is mentioned that we can make the beagle board to blink the LEDs. Am I making mistake in configuring the minicom? Kindly let me know.

    Thanks & regards,
    Anandan.V.S.

    Try to start again:

    Boot WITHOUT an OS. Just copy xloaded and such to SD:

    sudo minicom -s

    See this:
    +-----[configuration]------+
    | Filenames and paths |
    | File transfer protocols |
    | Serial port setup |
    | Modem and dialing |
    | Screen and keyboard |
    | Save setup as dfl |
    | Save setup as.. |
    | Exit |
    | Exit from Minicom |
    +--------------------------+

    Goto Serial Port Setup


    A - Serial Device : /dev/YOURDEVICE
    B - Lockfile Location : /var/lock
    C - Callin Program :
    D - Callout Program :
    E - Bps/Par/Bits : 115200 8N1
    F - Hardware Flow Control : No
    G - Software Flow Control : No

    Now press E:

    Current: 115200 8N1

    Speed Parity Data
    A: 300 L: None S: 5
    B: 1200 M: Even T: 6
    C: 2400 N: Odd U: 7
    D: 4800 O: Mark V: 8
    E: 9600 P: Space
    F: 19200 Stopbits
    G: 38400 W: 1
    H: 57600 X: 2
    I: 115200 Q: 8-N-1
    J: 230400 R: 7-E-1

    Choice, or <Enter> to exit?

    You should get 115200 8N1, press keys I, L, V and W. When you're done, press Enter.

    Now in the previous screen, press F to set Hardware Flow Control to Off. You should have this now:


    Save as DFL, exit.

    sudo minicom

    Boot up You should see:


    Texas Instruments X-Loader 1.4.4ss (Aug 19 2010 - 02:49:27)

    Can you TYPE anything here?? (example: help)

    Formatting the SD card via the mkcard.txt script
    Download mkcard.txt from: http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/demo/beagleboard/


    $ chmod +x mkcard.txt
    $ ./mkcard.txt /dev/sdx,

    Where x is the letter of the card. You can find this by inserting your card and then running dmesg | tail. You should see the messages about the device being mounted in the log. Mine mounts as sdc.

    Once run, your card should be formatted.

    Then:
    (in THIS order)

    $ cp MLO /mnt/sda1
    $ cp u-boot.bin /mnt/sda1
    $ cp uImage /mnt/sda1

    Download the above files from: http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/demo/beagleboard/

    And then try boot cheers

    Once you get it all working in xloader (OMAP prompt) we'll get Angstrom working! bounce

    If you would like, we can build you a custom Angstrom image with only the packages and GUI you want! You don't need to use what you find on Google! We can help you build one! affraid
