BeagleBox is alive and well

A year-long layoff is over and the system is back to working again.
Added by Hammel over 6 years ago

BeagleBox was put on hold for the past year in order for the lead developer, Michael J. Hammel, to complete work on other projects (primarily, a 2nd edition of his last book). But that work is completed, so now its time to reboot BeagleBox.

BeagleBox has been updated to use the latest mainline kernel and bootloader along with updated root file system and cross toolchain. After a few bumps in the process, the build is now back to booting to logins on the serial console and DVI-D output. X.org also works though it is not yet enabled in the boot process (but coming soon).

Joining the project this year is Dominic Reynolds. Dominic will be working on adding support for PandaBoard.

BeagleBox also has a slightly different goal with this reboot: to provide a core platform on which application-target projects can be built. More on this will be coming with updates to the project wiki and issue tracker.
