PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The Cloud9 IDE seems to 'hang' when I try to expand the project files at the directory, /cloud9. There is a circular progress indicator and it justs continues to circle and circle without end. Further, I attempted to save a file in the Cloud9 IDE, but on subsequent attempts to use the Cloud9 IDE, it shows the file is empty. I cannot load files. I cannot save files.
I just purchased a BeagleBone Black (HW vA5C, bonescript v0.2.2).
I have enabled the Cloud9 IDE by connecting the USB Type A cable to the computer host. The computer powers the BBB and the BBB's LED indicators are showing the heartbeat and other customary status.
When I navigate to 192.168.7.2:3000 the Cloud9 IDE 'seems' to recognize the BBB. However, when I try to exercise the Cloud9 IDE tutorial at beagleboard.org, I see errors in the IDE.
I am testing this BBB HW on an iMac running OS X v10.8.4 and Safari v6.0.5. I downloaded and installed the latest HoRNDIS network driver, rel4.
I am testing this BBB HW on a Dell laptop running Win7 and Firefox v22.0. I download and installed the provided 64-bit USB drivers.
Because I see the same Cloud9 IDE behavior on a PC/Firefox and Mac/Safari, I conclude that the problem is somehow related to the Cloud9 IDE or the network driver running on the BBB.
At circuitco's BBB FAQ, there are two specific pieces of advice: "5.2 Cloud9 IDE and GateOne SSH Client no accessible" and "5.4 Cloud9 Not Running Properly. How do I fix this?". In the first, I confirmed in a PuTTY terminal that the directory, /var/lib/cloud9, does indeed exist and this directory contains the files I saved or attempted to save in the Cloud9 IDE. In the second, I switched the mode from "Debug" to "Run" by deselecting the option, "Run in debug mode".
Another observation: I can run and execute the bonescript examples included in the Beagleboard.org tutorial. For example, I can execute "getPlatform()" and obtain the BBB's serial number, version, etc...
I am at a real loss to explain why the Cloud9 IDE and the BBB is not working well together. I have requested help at the freenode IRC, circuitco support, beagleboard.org, c9.io support and general internet searches. If anyone has some tips to share, please reply.
