I wish to install JavaFX developer preview on my Beagleboard xM. Unfortunately, for some reason, it seems that you must build the Angstrom distro on a 32-bit Ubunutu 12.04 Install. I can not install 32-bit Ubuntu on my ultra modern build machine with 16Gb RAM SSD etc... it just refuses to create disk partitions, however 64-bit Ubuntu installs without any issues.
Trying to follow the instruction for the 32-bit install does not complete successfully, as the opengl omap3 libraries seem to need 32-bit linux libraries - very peculiar?
Can somebody please advise whether it is possible, and if so how, to build the correct Angstrom distribution on a 64-bit Ubuntu install?
I HAVE NO OTHER BUILD MACHINE AVAILABLE :-(
The docs say this
Use a Suitable Build Machine
Use a 32-bit Ubuntu 12.04 build machine with 30 GB of disk space free.
Note: Do not build on a VirtualBox shared folder. Vboxfs does not support creation of hard links, which the build system needs.
I don't know about VirtualBox much - is there such a thing as a VirtualBox not-shared folder, and would I be able to build on that?
