Was wondering if you can possibly get iTunes to work with Wine. That’s really the only Windows program I really need in order to keep the firmware of my iPod up-to-date.

just format your hard drive and install windows in it… there is nothing good in Linux… in terms of apps etc.

I’m installing Linux Lite on one of my laptops after using other distros, I felt I would come back to Linux Lite. Very nice and fast distro. Icyos, can you do a video on setting up Samba for file sharing in Linux Lite? Thanks again for this wonderful series on this much underrated distro.

Brilliant video and Linux is a great platform, but just remember Office 2003 EOLs at the same time as Windows XP…April 2014.
Office 2007 is the one that tracks with Vista life cycle EOL in October 2017.
This is only about security updates etc etc.

Derek, I have a doubt…. why did you change what we were using last time (fopen, fwrite, etc…) to these other open, write…. are these libraries better??
in the other form we didnt have to include unistd.h and fcntl.h …. thank you very much… and great videos!

Firstly, thank you for this comprehensive video, it has helped me a great deal, and from what I found was one of very few knowledge sources on this topic.
Secondly, I have done a bit of work using the beaglebone gpio’s and would like to share.
Check out github gist for gist number 4013192 (since it appears youtube does not allow urls in the comments?)
This is a program that listens for a button press and measures the duration of the press. Enjoy!

Outstanding video! Thank you so much for posting a comprehensive video that goes into the Linux shell commands and explaining how they tie into the C/C++ code. Well done!

I can’t believe the IO interface. It really needs a proper driver.

Excellent. thanks

I have noticed you used an external pull-up for the button.
does the beaglebone have an internal pull-up mode?

by microkle8309 on March 24, 2013 at 8:17 pm. Reply #

have you try to pull up one of the gpio as an input?
i having problem with that (Operation not permitted)
do you know how to change OMAP_PIN_OUTPUT_PULLUP to OMAP_PIN_INPUT_PULLUP?

This is one of the best and most useful videos I have ever seen on youtube !!!
I would like to see more tutorials about how to work with peripherals with Linux.
Keep it going on !

How did you figure how to set the mode of gpmc_ben1? I understand that cat gpmc_ben1 displays the contents of the file gpmc_ben1, but the contents of the file itself don’t seem to provide any hints… I’m utterly perplexed by the lack of instruction on how to make use of the various pins!

hello, can you do an example using interrupts on any edge detect on 2 pins? (so I can program a quadrature-encoder reader [decoder]) or, if you can’t, a few tips so i can investigate… your tuts have opened my eyes into this plattform, thx! priceless

Great video Derek – thanks. For those following, the documentation mentioned at 15:27 is the technical reference manual (4500 pages!) about the processor, available for download from Ti.

Thanks foe the quick response, i was going over the tutorials in order and I did not notice that you implemented the pin muxing function in the I2C video.. I

It will be great if you can get a UART video for C/C++, all the examples online uses Python and I am planning to force my self to stay with C/C++

by AsHxxxxAsH on March 25, 2013 at 1:03 am. Reply #

Great video!!! Is there any reason you did not implement the pin muxing in the C app?
