I’ve got some reports that my Beaglebone guide is outdated and giving some troubles regarding the bootloader and kernel.
While as of vanilla kernel 3.6.1 doesn’t support the beaglebone, U-Boot 2012.10-rc3 does support it, so i’ve tested all thechanges and updated the guide accordingly.
You can find it in http://dev.gentoo.org/~armin76/arm/beaglebone/install.xml
Some changes i’ve noticed in almost a year since i did the documentation:
- The bug (by design they said) which made the USB port stop working after unplugging a device (check my post about the Beaglebone) is now fixed
- CPU scaling is working, although the default governor is ‘userspace’. The default speed with this governor is:
a) 600MHz if powering it using a PSU through the 5V power connector, remember that the maximum speed of the Beaglebone is 720MHz
b) 500MHz if powering it using the mini-USB port
