Open Embedded nano build
Hurray, I got a working ipkg for the 'nano' text editor on the Beagle Board!
As a follow-up to my last blog entry: building nano for the Beagle Board on my laptop using Open Embedded worked like a charm. I ended up with a <my_open_embedded_dir>/tmp/deploy/glibc/ipk/armv7a/nano_2.0.7-r0.1_armv7a.ipk , and after copying that to the Beagle Board's SD card and booting the board, I installed it successfully using the GPE Package Manager. Next step is doing the same with Pure Data (and Tcl/Tk, I suppose).
