Getting started with BeagleRT¶
Prerequisites¶Before starting, make sure you have:
- Beaglebone Black
- BeagleRT cape
- standard-A to mini-B USB cable
- 2GB or more micro-SD card
- Optional, but recommended: up to two 3-ways female connectors for audio in/out from the cape. You will probably want some sort of stereo female jack connector at the other end.
Stack the audio cape on top of the Beaglebone Black (BBB). Make sure all the pins from the cape fit into the socket header of the BBB and that no pin gets bent in the process.
[TODO: connector wiring]
Clone the disk image from [TODO: url] on the SD card. This image contains a Debian 7.7 distribution with Xenomai extensions which contains all the toolkits needed to compile and run BeagleRT projects.
Linux and MacOS users¶
[TODO: ssh setup for windows, macos, linux (copy from digital-foley, mention possible security issues)]
