== Life with GNU/Linux ==
 +
I started using GNU/Linux somewhere around ''1997/98''. My first distro was [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Hat_Linux RedHat 5.0] if I remember correctly and I tried a couple of others (including [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fedora_(operating_system) Fedora], [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corel_Linux Corel Linux], ...) and finaly discovered Gentoo probably around ''2008/09''. Since then I love the extended freedom and control over my systems. I've converted one of my systems to Funtoo Linux on ''Sep 06 2011'', if the emerge.log is not lying. Other systems followed shortly. I have recently tried Funtoo on ARM platform, where Gentoo was working for me just fine and now my ARM gadgets are running on Funtoo as well.
  
The '''PandaBoard ES''' is a newer version based on the OMAP4460 SoC, with the CPU and GPU running at higher clock rates. The board has been available to the public since 16 November 2011. Like its predecessor, it is a community supported development platform.

The OMAP4430 SoC on the PandaBoard features a dual-core 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore CPU, a 304 MHz PowerVR SGX540 graphics processing unit (GPU), a Texas Instruments TMS320C6400 digital signal processor (DSP), and 1 GiB of DDR2 SDRAM.

The PandaBoard ES uses a newer SoC, with a dual-core 1.2 GHz CPU and 384 MHz GPU. Primary persistent storage is via an Secure Digital (SD) Card slot allowing SDHC cards up to 32 GB to be used. The board includes wired 10/100 Ethernet as well as wireless Ethernet and bluetooth connectivity. The board can output video signals via Digital Visual Interface (DVI) and HDMI interfaces. It also has 3.5 mm audio connectors. It has two Universal Serial Bus (USB) host ports and one USB On-The-Go port, supporting USB 2.0.

== Funtoo Linux Instalation ==

First of all you have to prepare/format your SD card (ALL DATA WILL BE LOST!).
+
 
+
<pre>
+
sdcardsetup.sh
+
# sdcardsetup.sh script
+
#!/bin/sh
+
 
+
if [ ! "$1" = "/dev/sda" ] ; then
+
        DRIVE=$1
+
        if [ -b "$DRIVE" ] ; then
+
                dd if=/dev/zero of=$DRIVE bs=1024 count=1024
+
                SIZE=`fdisk -l $DRIVE | grep Disk | awk '{print $5}'`
+
                echo DISK SIZE - $SIZE bytes
+
                CYLINDERS=`echo $SIZE/255/63/512 | bc`
+
                echo CYLINDERS - $CYLINDERS
+
                {
+
                echo ,9,0x0C,*
+
                echo ,,,-
+
                } | sfdisk -D -H 255 -S 63 -C $CYLINDERS $DRIVE
+
                mkfs.vfat -F 32 -n "boot" ${DRIVE}1
+
                mke2fs -j -L "rootfs" ${DRIVE}2
+
        fi
+
fi
+
</pre>
+
 
+
Follow the general steps from [[Funtoo on ARM#Installing Funtoo]].
+
 
+
These steps include:
+
* Extract stage3 to the 2nd partition of the SD card
+
* Extract portage snapshot (required to emerge things and ntp(see below))
+
* Setup fstab
+
* Setup root password
+
* Configure hostname and networking (optional, but recommended)
+
* Enable SSH access (optional, but recommended)
+
* Enable serial console access (optional, but recommended)
+
* Correct RTC "bug" with swclock
+
 
+
 
+
=== Enabling serial console access ===
+
These are instructions specific for Pandaboard.
+
nano -w /mnt/SD_root/etc/inittab
+
s0:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 115200 ttyO2 vt100
+
 
+
=== Kernel and bootloader ===
+
Here you can find kernel and bootloader files for a quick start.
+
Put these on first partition of your SD card. Archive name boot.tar.xz
+
 
+
* http://www.mediafire.com/?h5m1mnqqdrnyb
+
 
+
Of course you can build your own kernel and U-Boot files, but these are provided here so you don't have to go through the cross-compiling pains and can use your Pandaboard to do native compiling once running.
+
 
+
=== Modules and firmware ===
+
Put these inside /lib folder on second partition. Archive name modules.tar.xz
+

Life with GNU/Linux

I started using GNU/Linux somewhere around 1997/98. My first distro was RedHat 5.0 if I remember correctly and I tried a couple of others (including Fedora, Corel Linux, ...) and finaly discovered Gentoo probably around 2008/09. Since then I love the extended freedom and control over my systems. I've converted one of my systems to Funtoo Linux on Sep 06 2011, if the emerge.log is not lying. Other systems followed shortly. I have recently tried Funtoo on ARM platform, where Gentoo was working for me just fine and now my ARM gadgets are running on Funtoo as well.
