Step 5 - Confirming setup

Ok, so all our pieces should be in place. Place the SD card into the BB-xM and fire that puppy up (get it? Puppy... BeagleBoard... ahh Hilarious!)

  1. Your login should be
    login:ubuntu
    password:temppwd
  2. run a search for spi using the following command
    dmesg|grep spi
    This should return the following
[ 2040.715728] omap2_mcspi omap2_mcspi.1: registered master spi1
[ 2040.715881] omap2_mcspi omap2_mcspi.2: registered master spi2
[ 2040.716033] omap2_mcspi omap2_mcspi.3: registered master spi3
[ 2040.716094] spi spi3.0: setup: speed 48000000, sample trailing edge, clk normal
[ 2040.716094] spi spi3.0: setup mode 1, 8 bits/w, 48000000 Hz max --> 0
[ 2040.716186] omap2_mcspi omap2_mcspi.3: registered child spi3.0
[ 2040.716217] spi spi3.1: setup: speed 48000000, sample trailing edge, clk normal
[ 2040.716247] spi spi3.1: setup mode 1, 8 bits/w, 48000000 Hz max --> 0
[ 2040.716339] omap2_mcspi omap2_mcspi.3: registered child spi3.1
[ 2040.716461] omap2_mcspi omap2_mcspi.4: registered master spi4
[ 2040.716491] spi spi4.0: setup: speed 48000000, sample trailing edge, clk normal
[ 2040.716522] spi spi4.0: setup mode 1, 8 bits/w, 48000000 Hz max --> 0
[ 2040.716613] omap2_mcspi omap2_mcspi.4: registered child spi4.0
see the spi3.0, 3.1 and 4.0? That means we can now write to our pins, so we have the BB-xM set up with the SPI pins enabled. -- AlYoung - 2013-01-08
