Where is the beaglebone START_HERE.sh script referenced in the TI wiki? I tried to compile the TI beaglebone SDK at http://software-dl.ti.com/dsps/dsps_public_sw/am_bu/sdk/AM335xSDK/latest/index_FDS.html, but did not get a successful getty start-up, and got an error opening /dev/fb0 too. I'm trying to get output from my DVI cape, but so far have not found a beaglebone distribution that has both DVI output and actual gstreamer plugins ... I was hoping that the START_HERE.sh might be some kind of magic, but so far this has been a failed effort.
The START_HERE.sh is only used in the SD card that comes out of the box with the beaglebone. It's job is to run the installer and launch setup.sh to configure your system for development. It would also open a browser to remote Matrix to give you an out-of-box experience.
As for the DVI cape that is not supported by the SDK
Thanks for the quick reply.
I see the following under "Installing the SDK" and "Running setup.sh" at http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/AMSDK_START_HERE_Script:
BeagleBone setup.sh The remainder of the BeagleBone setup is performed via setup.sh. Setup.sh has been modified slightly for the BeagleBone so that it can autodetect and install the drivers for the built in USB-to-Serial and XDS100v2.
the "modified slightly" part is of interest to me ... I've downloaded the SDK, and run the setup.sh script, but I see no indication that anything has been tailored for beaglebone. How does the SDK compile get tailored for a beaglebone versus for the TI EVM? I was hoping that the START_HERE.sh would be a clue for that ...
Sorry, the quote from the wiki didn't come out well in the e2e after the post, so I've re-entered it here:
The remainder of the BeagleBone setup is performed via setup.sh. Setup.sh has been modified slightly for the BeagleBone so that it can autodetect and install the drivers for the built in USB-to-Serial and XDS100v2.
Sorry, I have to retract this last one ... the setup.sh does in fact have some beaglebone stuff in it:
For boards that contain a USB-to-Serial converter on the board (BeagleBone), the port used for minicom will be automatically detected. By default Ubuntu will not recognize this device. Setup will add will add a udev rule to /etc/udev/ so that from now on it will be recognized as soon as the board is plugged in.
I'll mark the above as verified. Though not having DVI cape support is distressing, to say the least.
hey hi all,
Recently I have taken a beagle bone for some project.. i have bring-up this board , its working well but I need to work with SDK and trying to install it .... but there is no START_HERE.sh and SETUP.sh to install... em using Ubuntu 11.10 on my host m/c...
for support i have looked on some portal and i have found this....
Before running the SDK Installer, the SD Card from the EVM box needs to be mounted to your Linux Host PC (using a USB SD Card reader). The SDK Installer is found in the START_HERE partition of the SD card. Run the SDK Installer by double clicking on it within your Linux host PC. Alternatively, bring up a terminal window and change directories to the where the START_HERE partition is mounted and run the SDK Installer with the following command:
[prompt]:~$ ./ti-sdk-amxx-evm-x.x.x.x-Linux-x86-Installto do this i need START_HERE but not available in SD card with beagle bone ... or i have to look any where else..
[prompt]:~$ ./ti-sdk-amxx-evm-x.x.x.x-Linux-x86-Install and this command giving an error : no such file or directory but i have copied it to the mounted partition as i have told earlier
I replied to your other post.
Thanks dear for your suggestion, But i have done similarly as you rightly said, I have downloaded it from from the link same as you mentioned http://www.ti.com/tool/linuxezsdk-sitara and its AM335x SDK Essentials: and the name of installer is ti-sdk-am335x-evm-05.05.00.00-Linux-x86-Install
if am right.. but i was not getting the check script to edit as i had read the FAQs to install SDK they they have mention to edit .. and as i am new in this filed what i am thinking that its a executable file thats why i am not getting the EZSDK/BIN/.....CHECK.SH script to add.. that why i looed for START_HERE script but that was also to available... in this case what should i do ??? or i am missing something??? or i have to download it again as tar file package ?? let me know if am doing anything wrong ...
