The BeagleBoard has a huge open source community. To be effective at using the Beagle you need to learn how work with the community. The purpose of this exercise is to introduce you some of the Beagle communities.

eLinux.org

eLinux.org is where this page is posted. It's also where I've posted all the class exercises. I tag all my pages with [[Category:ECE497]] so it's easy to find all my pages here Category:ECE497. Bookmark it, you'll use it a lot.

  1. Create a user name on eLinux.org
  2. Edit your User page on eLinux and add
    [[Category:ECE497 |Ux]]
    to it, where x is the first initial of your last name. This will make it appear on the Category page under U sorted by last name. Check out User:Mayhewsw for ideas of what else to put on your User page.

Beagle repos

Check out the FAQ. It has some good suggestions on where to find information.

  1. search for something like cloud9 and see what you find
  2. subscribe to the group
