Late last week I received and Overo Water and a Tobi expansion board.
I followed the instructions I found on the Gumstix web site to snap the two
boards together, connect the USB, and then also the 5vdc power.
While attempting to get Kermit to see the gumstix I noticed a red LED
started to glow dim, and then brightly and then the boards became very hot.
When I disconnected the power and USB and let the board cool a bit. I then
again connected the USB and after a minute or so the red LED began to glow
again and the board was getting hot again.
I can't imagine what I could be doing wrong to cause this behavior. Please
advise if it sounds like there is a problem with either the Overo Water or
the Tobi, and if I should get an RMA for replacement.
