balena os on beagle bone does not work

hello everybody,

this is my first post here… I want to evaluate balena os on a beaglebone black but failed to get it up and running wirh the tutorial on https://www.balena.io/os/docs/beaglebone-black/getting-started/

  • with production image the device isn’t starting at all
  • with development image the device starts, but it’s not possible to connect by ssh and after a 2-3 minutes the device shuts down by itself - section of serial log below

can anypody help here?

thanks
michael

Hi there, welcome to the forums.

Looking at the getting started instructions you linked, it seems to disagree with this other getting started page - https://www.balena.io/docs/learn/getting-started/beaglebone-black/nodejs/ in that it doesn’t have as detailed flashing instructions.

Could you try to follow the getting started guide here instead: https://www.balena.io/docs/learn/getting-started/beaglebone-black/nodejs/ and let us know how it goes? Thanks

@eberli did you ever manage to make any progress here? If the installation process for the Beaglebone Black is still causing trouble for you we’d like to know! :slight_smile:
