[asac Mar 19, 2011]: needs work items to track progress; setting to drafting. High importance tough.
[asac Mar 22, 2011]: moving drafter to john; john, can you make work items along the syntax of linaro-android-kernel-for-panda? Thanks!
[jstultz Mar 23, 2011]: So with the current linaro-android.38/37 trees, I don't know of any outstanding work items for beagle board. Please let me know if something is missing.
[jeremychang Mar 29, 2011]: Tried .38 kernel with linaro 4.5 toolchain from gcc-4.5-arm-linux-gnueabi, booting up into home screen is no problem. Android usb gadget platform device is not ready. adb can't detect the device.
[asac, Apr 26, 2011]: I have problems seeing the home screen on beagle :/ ... jamie verified that this works; i will get matt and andy to provide the tie break
[asac, Apr 26, 2011]: beagle board users disagree. however, some have confirmed it works, so lets declare it success and track it in bugs.
