I'm running +Nuxeo on +Ubuntu on my #BeagleboneBlack. It took about 2 hours from starting with a fresh image.

Performance is a bit weak but that is to be expected given the single-core ARM-A8 SoC and just 512MB RAM.

The installation process surprised me. All I used was wget the .deb file from the Nuxeo repository, apt-get the dependencies and gdebi. No fuzzing!

hello friends, i wrote code for image processing in visual studio c++ with opencv. i want to know Is it possible to dump the code of visual studio c++ in beaglebone black so it can do own board image processing and if yes, then how ?
thanks

Anyone familiair with the DVK530? DVK530 is an expansion cape designed for BB Black, provides two 46-pin stackable connector, two LCD interfaces, prototyping area, and a connector for connecting DVK531.

+embeddedcomputer.nl. So close to perfection,,, if that prototyping area could be used to re-map the pins on the 40 pin flat flex connectors it would be a universal LCD cape,,, could make it work with all 33 pin and 40 pin LCD's. The 50 pin LCD's would not fit,, so a 50 pin connector would be nice too. But good job supporting 2 of the common 40 pin configurations.

SOM vendor with interesting #BeagleBoneBlack  derived design
uSomIQ + BoneCape = BeagleBone! If you are looking for a flexible alternative to BeagleBone or BeagleBone Black but with software compatibility with the original enthusiast platform then uSomIQ + BoneCape is the right choice for you! BoneCape has almost the same pinout as BeagleBone and thus you can use original capes created for BeagleBone [...]

No, but from talking to SOM vendors in the past, I'd guess in low volumes it's more than the BBB.  For a custom design, the SOM approach (uSomIQ) is much easier to work with than the "motherboard" approach (BBB) - for example, you can make your motherboard fit your design (case dimensions, connector types and locations).

BTW, the RPi guys are coming out with a SOM.

My BeagleBone Black: April 10, 2014

Hello from The Philippines! As my computer life is presently a disaster, my BeagleBone Black, running mostly autonomously in headless mode, is alive and always up to date. Its running Debian 8 "Jessie" GNU/Linux as usual.

After I pulled my Apple iBook G4 from mothball status, it will soon have the PowerPC version of Debian 8 "Jessie" GNU/Linux.

BeagleBone Black: My Text-Based Brag Screen

Without the bloat, my BeagleBone Black is operating smoothly and quickly. I removed a lot of software that was not needed for my projects. It runs as a headless server, however a web server is not one of them. Other than being a server, it's my personal I.T. Security Officer, and is doing my network admin & system admin stuff for me; it's part of my aaps (autonomous automation projects). It maintains my Raspberry Pi and any other Linux systems I operate; automated detection, logging in, maintenance, etc. It does my Android maintenance tasks, too. My wife told me I'm becoming LAZY by making my BeagleBone Black do all my work for me while I sleep or watch TV.

Well, my hands hurt and I've been very tired, lately. My wife tells me to sleep when I'm tired, and I'm actually doing that while my BeagleBone Black is left online in "autonomous" mode. I've other disabilities that hinder my computer work, and so my BeagleBone Black takes over. The best part of my BeagleBone Black is that it only consumes 2 watts of electricity.

For "autonomous mode", it's using cron-activated scripts (CLISP & BASH). I've written lots & lots of scripts, with redundant backup scripts. My goal is for my BeagleBone Black to act as me when I can't.

It's actually easier to sleep when my BeagleBone Black is handling my computer-related duties. This will make a new classification for the BeagleBone Black as a "tool for the handicapped."

The Evening After Easter Sunday

Good Evening from Pasig City, Philippines!

Thus my BeagleBone Black from +Drew Fustini is my most successful Linux-based project to date, running as an Autobot, or Autonomous Robot. Though it doesn't have any physical mechanisms, it's my personal IT security officer; it runs a variety of software-based boobytraps...

My text-based brag screen is gifted to show the headless operation of my BeagleBone Black.

It seems that the BBB fans are craving more power as it evolves. Is there anyone else like me who likes the BBB but is happy with lower power, low cost? If so, is there a better alternative for us?

To be clear, I'm using the GPIO, AIO, USB, PPP for web IO and bonescript. I do not need graphics, powerful CPU, and lots of memory.

My BeagleBone Black runs autonomously as a talking headless server, that also functions in a way to make my life easier for me. It's also my personal IT security officer.

As a disabled person and my disabilities are now catching up to me, I'm constantly training my BeagleBone Black to handle all of my computer-related duties before I can no longer do them.

I'm a veteran programmer of the C Programming Language, and I'm also programming my BeagleBone Black with BASH, Python and CLISP.

And, just like you, I am satisfied with my BeagleBone Black...

Interesting new PowerCape for #BeagleBoneBlack  
The Power Cape provides UPS functionality to a BeagleBone by powering from a single-cell lithium battery or a DC power source.

Rev C is only changing the eMMC, nothing else.

Loading device overlay file at boot time

So  I have to read more about device trees, but maybe someone can point me in the right direction (and (in-)validate my assumption).

I am trying to get my BeagleG/Bumps cape device overlay dtbo-file read at boot-time,  but it does not work. If I manually add it by echoing its name to /sys/devices/bone_capemgr.*/slots, it works and is working properly but if I add it to the kernel commandline ( optargs=capemgr.enable_partno=BeagleG ), it doesn't.

The kernel sees the parameter and attempts to load it but fails, see this relevant snippet:
 https://github.com/hzeller/beagleg#load-cape-device-tree-at-bootup   
I don't have an EEPROM on my cape that helps it to be identified. I assume this is the problem ? Is this checked when when the cape is attempted to be loaded at boot time as opposed to manual ? If so, then I probably do have to provide that in the next hardware version.

Is there a workaround (that does not require compiling it into the kernel, that is) ?

Here is a preliminary script that does all the steps needed:

Looks like Rev C is coming!. 4GB on board ram (as opposed to 2GB on previous revs). Does anyone know if they really will be shipped at the end of April? Also, will they be loaded with Angstrom or Debian?

For what the BBB is, I'd happily pay an extra 10 or 15 dollars.
