Installing angstrom

For development, I'm currently using Angstrom v2013.06. Here are the instructions for making a BeagleBone Black flasher SD-card. This should be compatible with the packages found on this wiki.

Download the eMMC flasher:

 http://downloads.angstrom-distribution.org/demo/beaglebone/BBB-eMMC-flasher-v2013.06-2013.11.20.img.xz

extract the flasher on to a mmc card:

 sudo -s
 xz -dkc BBB-eMMC-flasher-v2013.06-2013.11.20.img.xz > /dev/sdX
 exit

Insert the image, hold down the boot button and wait for all four LEDs lighting. Once all four LEDs are solid, remove the power, remove the SD-card and restart.

If you want to see the progress of the file copying, pipe it to pv:

 xz -dkc BBB-eMMC-flasher-v2013.06-2013.11.20.img.xz | pv > /dev/sdX
