JLink with BeagleBoard

If you hook-up JLink to BeagleBoard and execute JLink commander, then you probably get the following error:

****** Error: DBEGN is not asserted.

And fail to recognise the target. This is because TI OMAP3530 needs a special setup sequence for JLink to connect, which is controlled by JLink script file (Default.JLinkScript)

Find the script file:


Copy it to the base directory(Windows) or the current directory(Linux) and rename it to


Then you can successfully connect to the board.

VMware Player on Xubuntu

Xubuntu : 10.10 / 11.04
VMware-Player : 3.1.3-385536

Be sure to install the following packages before installing vmware-player

- libglibmm-2.4-1c2a
- libgnomecanvasmm-2.6-1c2a

Otherwise you cannot fire-up the installer, not to mention the player itself.
If you encounter another issue after the install, check this out.
