A short experiment while I had a couple of hours…
… it turned out to be a couple of hours as I found I could connect to the BBB from Winoze box but not from the 64 bit Debian box??
Turned out the BBB, like the BB, is a little dodgy and needs to be reset as you are not guaranteed an Ethernet connection on startup.
Makes it a nuisance I imagine for embedded applications I am guessing.
In any event, finally got around to doing hello world from Eclipse.
Just a start. Now the fun begins.
