Re: BeagleBone Black apt oddness

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the quick responses,

1.  Flashed from stock Angstrom image to that one.

2. booted new image and nano edited the /etc/network/interfaces to enable the wifi ( ralink a/b usb )

as stated its powered via a hub ( powered ) ..

3. ran apt-get update 

As simple as that, I did think perhaps it might have been something to do with date/time so just verified using ntpdate.

Interesting, have not personally seen that error in my shipping image
yet..  Can you share the sequence of events that led up to that error
