Hi Guys and Girls! Long time no see!
When you power it up, you have the Angstrom pre-installed on the onboard card. Well that is not bad, but not enough for me. I want to restore the white ones environment, also I want to use the new graphics features.
== Debian OS==
This was my guide to install it.
A Linux is needed for copying the image to the card, and I used my vmware ubuntu.
Get the prebuilt image:
Untar the image:
tar xJf debian-7.0.0-console-armhf-2013-05-29.tar.xz cd debian-7.0.0-console-armhf-2013-05-29
Quick Install script for “board”, on “/dev/sdb” part, use your own card device, usually it is like that.
sudo ./setup_sdcard.sh --mmc /dev/sdb --uboot bone_dtb
After I have put the card inside BBB the slot, it worked like a charm. There was ping, but no working ssh.
To have ssh, first access the BBB using the http://arm ,(it worked in my network) or you can use the BBB IP as well. That will open a linux shell inside the browser.
Default login for debian arm on BBB:
Now you can download an ssh to the debian by
sudo apt-get install openssh-server
This time you should be able to use the ssh port.
I wanted to see the graphical interface of the BBB’s Debian through my Windows PC. For that I need an Xming and a Putty on the PC’s side.
Set the Putty, to forward the X11. Connection / SSH / X11 / Check the Enable X11 forwarding box.
On the BBB’s side, I used and installed the lxde:
apt-get install lxde lxde-core lxde-icon-theme
Start the Xming on the PC, then start the putty with X11 forwarding, connect to the BBB.
After login send that command:
Note: I have already changed the background on the BBB, the default pic is a debian logo.
