Re: minimal yocto images not booting on Beagleboard-xM rev B

G Rajender <G.Rajender@...>

Hi Gary,

Thank you very much for your reply.

I have followed the steps given in README.hardware. I have copied all the required images to SD card, inserted in to SD/MMC slot of Beagleboard-xM rev B, connected the serial cable to minicom on Host PC (Ubuntu 10.04) and given power to the board. But on minicom i am not getting any bootup messages and echos etc...

Can you please suggest the steps to follow on how to execute meta-beagleboard BSP pre-built binaries on Beagleboard-xM rev B.

Thank you much for your valuable time spending on this. Looking for your kind response.

Thanks and regards,

I am new to Yocto project and Beagleboard.

I am using Beagleboard-xM rev B. I got the information about Yocto project by search. Yocto is a good open platform for Embedded developers for target specific architectures.

I have started working on Yocto project to build a LTP (Linux Test Project) Test frame work for Beagleboard-xM rev B. I have downloaded the Yocto release 1.0.1 and Beagleboard-xM
BSP from the Yocto website. I have installed the Yocto project poky build tool and demo image in my Host PC (Ubuntu 10.04)as per poky quick start guide.

*Now I am trying to execute the meta-bsp (meta-beagleboard) binaries (built images) on beagleboard-xM rev B as per README. Hardware file. But the beagleboard-xM revision B is not
booting with theses BSP images.*
What does "not booting" mean? What errors are you getting?


*Also I want add the Beagleboard BSP to the BBlayers of poky. I am unable to understand the procedure explained in BSP developer’s guide.*

*Can anyone suggest or share the experiences about above problems.*

Thanks in advance and looking for your kind response.
