Ubuntu

Installation

For the beagle board ROS installation you'll need at least a 2GB Secure Digital memory card. This needs two partitions (first FAT32, second Ext3) with the first partition as small as possible (32Mb in my case). Copy the files from the download to the correct partition and boot from it. I've not preconfigured the network connection, so add a network device (I used a Linksys USB200M) do 'ifconfig eth0 up' and 'dhclient eth0'. You should be able to ping to the PC running the roscore service. Adjust the setup.sh shell script to you include the correct IP for the device and the correct IP for the PC running roscore. Do 'source setup.sh' and start your rospackage. More elaborate details will follow later.

Distribution

The RootFS is based on a Ubuntu 9.10. Crosscompilation is done with CodeSourcery crosscompile stack.
