BeagleBoard XM

Bit of a cheat this one as it came 2nd hand with an SD already set up.

It boots and runs fine, but could not get it to recognize my wifi.

This isn't really a problem as I'll be hooking it up to a router soon enough. Decent little machine its fast enough, though the OS is alien to me, something called Gnome, which when I hit the about tab, to find out more, came up with nothing.

But its a graphical GUI, it has SSH connection and it should be a viable target soon. But as its rather an old board, I'm not in a rush to test it out beyond getting it to boot.

Back in the box it goes for now. I'll try to install some other Linux on it when I get some time.
