In a previous article we have given a brief description of Beaglebone Black board and its variants.
Beaglebone development board
The BeagleBone in this review comes with 4GB of space on board, and with the operating system already installed.
We can access the BeagleBone, in our case the Black, without using the Ethernet network, but connecting it to a PC through the mini service USB connection as specified on the BeagleBone site
Getting started with Beaglebone
After connecting the BeagleBone Black to the PC via the USB cable we find another removable device to the existing disks
Running start.htm we start an interface similar to the one available on the getting-started web site
We proceed to the installation of network-over-USB drivers for the operating system, Windows 64-bit in our case
Proceed to download the file and run it, providing the permissions required by Windows
At the end the window with the performed operations is shown
Using Firefox or Chrome we access to the following address http://192.168.7.2; we access in this way to the web server, running on Beaglebone board, through network over USB
The page shows how to update the system, login to the IDECloud9, perform various Bonescript examples.
The access to the Cloud9 IDE
Cloud9 IDE Informations
takes place on port 3000 to the IP address specified above, ie http://192.168.7.2:3000
In our examples, we will not change the operating system present on the internal eMMC card but we will download an updated version of Debian for BeagleBone and will install it on a micro sd card.
The system can be closed using the Power button on board
or by connecting via ssh at 192.168.7.2 address with the debian user ,using temppwd as password, and executing the command “sudo poweroff”
In the next article we will proceed to download and install on a micro sd card the last Debian image for BeagleBone
