I was surprised to see how well the OpenGL demos run on the Gumstix Overo Fire. I have laptops that perform worse! These demos were all included in the Overo image i downloaded from Gumstix.
It has been a busy night but I have made good progress with the Gumtix Overo Fire. Today’s report is action packed with kernel panics, painful downgrades and a working webcam.
I’m happy to report that I managed to make my Gumstix Overo Fire boot from the microSD card! After a few failed attempts as I mentioned here, I noticed an error message in the boot sequence:
Few weeks ago I was told about an opportunity to fly something small on an amateur rocket in October, when the guys from Danish Space Challenge will launch a bunch of rockets. I figured it was a good excuse to resume my work with the Gumstix Overo embedded conputer that I have lying around.
