Hi everybody. I have a BeagleBone Black board at home, and recently I have had a problem trying to update the Node.js version that is installed in the Angstrom distribution that comes preinstalled in the board. Well, in reality there are two problems:
There is no permanent clock inside the board, so every time you restar the board, the time in it is before the current time, and this cause all kind of conflicts with updates, new installations, SSL certificates…
There is no python compiler and other dependencies are missing, so it’s impossible to install a new Node.js version.
In order to solve these problems we need to connect to the board, for example using “ssh”, and we need to install what is missing.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
