After hooking up the Flyswatter to the serial connector through the Flyswatter/Beagleboard adapter I got a boot prompt. My TV is complaining that it doesn’t recognize the input format, so I’m probably going to have to figure out a custom modeline in the
xorg.conf, but I can live with a command prompt for now.
For those unfamiliar, the Beagle Board is a platform for embedded development based on Texas Instruments’ OMAP3530 System-on-chip board. Basically it’s a computer three inches square. It has handy input and output connectors for easy experimentation. Stay tuned for updates.
