These short notes aim to help beginners get a working Angstrom system running on the pandaboard.
$ sudo tar -xjv -C /media/rootfs -f /path/to/Angstrom-Pandaboard-demo-image*rootfs.tar.bz2This assumes that the SD card has the root filesystem (ext3) partition mounted as
uImage-2.6.*(kernel) file in
/bootof the rootfs and copy the file to the boot partition as
uImage. This new kernel is required to boot the filesystem reliably. This will replace your existing validation kernel if it is present. Before doing this step, you may wish to rename the working validation kernel from
uImageto something else before you copy the Angstrom
NOTE: Use external 5V supply and remove all USB connections from the Pandaboard when booting for the first time. Try USB later once you know it works.
Watch the serial port output. You should observe the following:
Some common problems and their fixes
USB_MODE='networking'and run the module reconfiguration script (name?).
Once you have a working Angstrom system you may want to connect it to:
