Installing Drivers (Linux)

For the BBB to be able to do ad hoc networking with your computer, there is nothing to install on the BBB itself. Its all set up and ready to go. However, to be able to run this on a Linux computer, you will need to install the udev rules found here: http://beagleboard.org/static/Drivers/Linux/FTDI/mkudevrule.sh

This script will create a new file called 73-beaglebone.rules in /etc/udev/rules.d/You will probably need to run the script as superuser.
