Panda goes wild – Reminders notes

Configuring pandaboard is not that difficult. But once things stop working, it sometimes become difficult to answer “why”.

Past few days with panda were not so good. This is how it went. I had two pandaboards. I picked once of them. Tried to work with it, but i guess panda was in bad mood. So was the other panda. After hours of googling at night (00:00 am till 5 am ), nothing worked. Eventually, i figured out that there was some problem with memory card reader’s pins. And luckily one of them started working after little hardware ¬†correction.

While in some other test flight one of my “dearest” (angrily) friend spills gas on pangaboard. Luckily panda was not powered so nothing went wrong that day. BUT, just before the next test flight (3:0 am ) memory card inside broke. It smelled like fuel. Reason was: swelling of memory card due to fuel. So i had to reconfig a new memory card with all libraries before (6 am ) .

So thought to put some reminder notes for juniors  (like what my seniors did for me ) :
