Can I boot any OS which has interface? I have doubts about it. Yes, I'm new for Linux and Galileo. However, I'm struggling to learn. Please, help me! I tried to boot from a debian image but i failed. I couldnt get get the correct login. There are many solutions provided. I have tried them all. But still no luck. I need to use an interface and see my program on display. Can i do these with galileo?

Hello bent,

The Galileo board doesn't have an interface for a display. The only way to access the board and get a "visual output" is through the console which can be accessed through the serial port as it is shown in the following document: http://www.intel.com/support/galileo/sb/CS-035124.htm Intel® Galileo Boards and Kits — Console Serial Cables

The Yocto image is the one supported by us, and it can be downloaded from the following link: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24355/eng/SDCard.1.0.4.tar.bz2 http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24355/eng/SDCard.1.0.4.tar.bz2. If you want to use Debian instead, I recommend you to visit http://www.emutexlabs.com/ubilinux EmutexLabs. They offer an image called Ubilinux which is based on Debian.

Regards,

Diego.
