More BeagleBone linux

More Angstrom tools:

systemd, is a system and service manager, a initd replacement

systemd uses journal instead of syslog

journalctl – a “/var/log/messages” replacement

configuration file: /etc/systemd/journald.conf

journalctl can be used in conjuction with grep

opkg – the package manager, a ipkg fork

page: http://code.google.com/p/opkg/
download: http://code.google.com/p/opkg/downloads/list

updating the system :  opkg update (?)
package information: opkg info <package name>
install packages:  opkg install <package name>    (ex. samba, a good way to build windows networks)

top  – shows running tasks

top with no arguments  – shows all tasks

top -p <pid> –shows only that specific pid

  • Comment on Chip Startups for AI in Edge and Endpoint Applications by David-Dorval February 22, 2020
    Hello, 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 […]

    I 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 […]

    Great 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 […]
