mc on beaglebone
Midnight Commander 4.6.1 running on BeagleBone with Angstrom Distribution.
BeagleBone is a linux box. So get all the classic linux tools!
mc aka Midnight Commander is a visual file manager (orthodox file manager) used in console work. It is released under under GNU GPL.
For those who are not familiar with mc it is a product in the line of nc – Norton Commander, Path Minder, dn – Dos Navigator, far, Windows Commander / Total Commander.
mc v4.6.1 runs smooth on BeagleBone/Angstrom, mc v220.127.116.11 needs the S-Lang Library (http://s-lang.org) so I skipped it.
Installing mc from source is simple but it takes some time for every step, is not like installing it on a server but you have enough time to read the full output without redirecting it to a file 🙂
wget http://www.midnight-commander.org/downloads/mc-4.6.1.tar.gz tar -xzvf mc-4.6.1.tar.gz cd mc-4.6.1 ./configure make make install

- Comment on Chip Startups for AI in Edge and Endpoint Applications by David-Dorval February 22, 2020Hello, very nice article about edge and end point AI. At STIMIO, where we built entire sensors, MCU and telecom solutions, we are very concerned about energy consumption of our products that run on batteries, often very costly to change. And end-point AI is definitely the solution to extend device as long as firmware update […]
- Comment on The Gremlins in the Machine by dt_hayden February 21, 2020I think the lack of such a button comes from a combination of extreme linear thinking and a bit of arrogance. Along the lines of "Why would you possible need an oops! button, just hit the buttons you want.". Here in the cube farm, we have a home grown software application, developed by at least […]
- Comment on Chip Startups for AI in Edge and Endpoint Applications by ckachris February 21, 2020Great article Sally! Besides performance, one critical point for the adoption and success of AI chips is the easy integration with high-level ML framework like Spark ML, Scikit-learn, pytorch, tensorflow etc. Chip vendors must provide high level APIs that will allow easy deployment, scaling, resource management and task scheduling in a familiar way as it […]
