Installing using a OpenMotics writer SD card

The OpenMotics software will be installed on the eMMC on-board flash storage of the BeagleBone Black.

The image is based on Angström Linux 2012.12 and contains extra packages:

  • supervisord
  • openvpn
  • ntpdate

The linux kernel is patched with 2 patches:

  • one patch that implements the RS485 driver in omap-serial
  • one patch that enables the watchdog timer on startup.

Small patches have been applied to the u-boot bootloader:

  • boot is set to the eMMC on-board flash storage
  • the boot delay is set to 0 seconds
  • the watchdog timer is enabled in u-boot
