Flashing the gumstix

If the Gumstix won't boot, you can (rather slowly) flash the filesystem over serial.

Correct alignment of the TTL RS232 adapter

If the gumstix will boot, then flashing from RAM disk over ssh is faster, but if the process fails or gets interrupted you'll have to fall back on the serial method. Remounting the filesystem read-only may not work, and the whole processed failed. Reflash over ssh

Changes necessary from the default image

In /etc/boa/boa.conf change the following lines:

From To
User www-data User root
Group www-data Group root
#ServerName ServerName gumstix

Stop and then start boa with:

/etc/init.d/boa stop
/etc/init.d/boa start
