Well, interestingly the problem is that while the board is connected and I can install packages (i.e. opkg install ffmpeg works), opkg install git returns that no such package was found.

I've since resorted to just scping the files from my development machine to the overo.

With your board connected to the internet

opkg update (may get some errors about zlib)
opkg install git

git clone  should work

Not behind a firewall with the ports git needs blocked ?
Or the gumstix and angstrom repos getting blocked by nac (network access
control) ?
