  yes, it takes a while.  the "start the build and go out drinking"
type of while.

  there's plenty of BB-related stuff at the main web site:
http://beagleboard.org.  lots of cool pix, lots of links, lots of
people doing wicked cool stuff with it -- audio, video, etc.

  if you're in canada, http://digikey.ca.  no big deal.

  just playing -- it's a cheap option for getting into embedded linux.
and, just to be clear, obviously this board isn't technically related
to fedora test releases -- i only asked here since it was clear that
there was *something* fedora-related to the build failing, i just
couldn't figure out what.  when others are saying, "hey, i'm using
ubuntu, it builds just fine," there's some incentive to figure out
what it is about fedora that's mucking things up.  and the solution
turned out to be fairly trivial.  (i might even put in a request that
the build process check for that and issue a warning to f11 users.)

  in any event, it's a cool toy, particularly for folks who want to
get into android, given the growing popularity of android on
linux-based phones.  there's an android port for the beagleboard so
you have a cheap way of jumping in.  the only slight drawback is that,
while there's buckets of online docs, sometimes it's hard to track it
all down, which is why i wrote this:


if you follow what's there on your f11 system, it should just work.
if it doesn't, then i'll fix the page.


p.s.  i even have one of these to go with it:


in any event, enjoy.  i'm just going to make sure that everything
that's supposed to work continues to work under fedora.
