Supported Software:

Gumstix hardware supports a variety of software platforms across all of its devices. Use the following resources to find supported software downloads for your hardware:

Get started with your Remote Data Collection Development Kit with these instructions and resources.

Prepare the kit:

  1. Insert the system card into the microSD card slot on top of the COM.
  2. Connect the COM to the expansion board by placing it on top of the marked connectors and pressing down lightly. Warning: Do not press on top of the microSD card slot. Doing so may damage the card reader.
  3. Connect the console port to your development machine using the included USB Mini-B to Standard A cable.
  4. If required, connect the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port.
  5. Establish a serial connection in a terminal on your development machine.
  6. Connect the power adapter to boot the system.
  7. Verify that the system boots successfully to a terminal.

At this point, the system has been configured and you are ready to begin development either via the console port or by SSH into the machine: > ssh gumstix@overo.local > Password: gumstix
