The next Saturday, Ryan Lortie and I came to the office to fool around with the new toy. Just one word: Impressive.
The SD for Maverick must be, at least, a 4Gb card, not less.
Second lesson learnt:
The USB is unable the power the Pandaboard. Thou shall power the board with a normal 5V power supply.
Also we found that my monitor, a LG Flatron W2261VP, is not well handled by the PVR X driver, but still it’s usable under 640×480. Ryan filed a bug about this issue.
It was great start up experience. The next stage is play with syslink and DOMX. Anyway, I won’t use Ubuntu for it, my plan is go with the minimal-fs stuff.
