Beagleboard X15

I have installed Archlinux on the Beagleboard X15. If anyone is interested in an image please let me know.
I have not seen any support from Archlinux yet. I plan to create some PKGBUILD to support this board.

Essentially, none of the developers have gotten their hands on the device :P

I got mine from the UK, it is a rev 2. They still had some left as of yesterday. TI sells their Rev 3 with a 7 inch LCD.
The Rev B1 should be available a bit before Christmas.

To get mine working I used the code for the Beaglebone Black and replaced u-boot and the Linux Kernel.
Short of modifying u-boot it only boots with a Fat partition and Ext3 or Ext4 partition.

At first it didn't boot so I updated a few files and removed a few firmware files using chroot and then it worked.
