The Turtle Loses This Time
November 11, 2010 ◦ 1 min ◦
The PandaBoard was quick and easy to get running. All that has to be done is download a image and write it to a sd card. Ubuntu started up quickly and easily, and the omap4 extras packages took care of any weird dependcies that Ubuntu needed for graphics acceleration and wifi. The only problem is that I just used a class 2 sd card that was laying around, with the filesytem on this Ubuntu is almost unuseable, and not fast enough to even update. SanDisk makes some nice class 10 SD cards that would probably be perfect so I'll order one and work from there, if that isn't good enough we will move on to external storage using usb.
