In this class we run The Debian Distribution on the BeagleBoard. Here's how to load the Debian image we'll be using on an SD card. First get a microSD card that holds at least 8G.

Downloads

There are two items you need to download, the image to copy to your SD card and the software to copy it.

Use balenaEtcher to copy to your SD card. Download it from here: https://www.etcher.io/. It runs on Linux, Mac or Windows, so pick your favorite OS and install it.

There are many versions of Debian we could use. Browse to https://rcn-ee.net/rootfs/bb.org/testing/2020-08-31/buster-iot/ and download bone-debian-10.5-iot-armhf-2020-08-31-4gb.img.xz

Copying to your SD card

  1. Start up balenaEtcher.
  2. Select the image you downloaded (no need to uncompress it).
  3. Put your SD card in the reader and select it.
  4. Click Flash! and wait for it to finish.

Once the SD card is flashed, put it in your Bone and boot it up.
