I'm not sure if my direct replies are being
caught in a spam filter. There were no instructions with the patch, which is 3 RPMs. I
placed all three RPMs on the SD card for the Beagleboard XM. [Basically just do a save as
with the sd card in an intel computer running opensuse.]
I booted the Beagleboard XM and ran all three patches, then rebooted. At that point I
could no longer log into the Beagleboard XM. Not through the serial port or the
"normally" (display driver and usb).
What is the output on the serial port (I mean from u-boot and then if you have something
Did you try a SSH login?
I have a program on the Beagleboard XM that I set up as a service that provides
"telemetry" over a lan. That service was running since I coudl get data off the
Beagleboard XM. I ran it for 3 days without a crash. [At that point I went to a different
SD card / OS to work on other software.] The best I ever got prior to the patch is about
However, I think the performance of the software I was running was hampered by the patch
since it seemed to be putting out less data. Since I couldn't log into the board, I
have no way to analyze this.
So again, I am asking for someone to either explain how to apply the patch, or apply the
patch to an image.
Install RPM kernel-omap2plus provided by Alex, using zypper and reboot.
As I stated before the JEOS wasn't booting on the
Beagleboard XM. [The XFCE image works.] This might be a good way to get the bug out of
JEOS and test the patch at the same time.
Try your patch on XFCE image first. One thing at a time. ;)
Since this appears to be a design flaw in the beagleboard XM, I'm sure all the board
have an issue with this to some degree. My board is just worse than most. Thus I have a
good test vehicle for the patched kernel, well provided I get one.
Thanks for your help in testing.

Let's leave it at that.

maybe can create one after that tonight that you can give a whirl. My Beagleboard XM is
about 2 km away with lots and lots of snow lying in between me and it. :)
