OK, I'll admit it up front, I'm NEW to the GumStix platform.
I've searched the list and can't find much info on this, so figure I'll
ask the professionals.
I want to be able to connect my gumstix to a VGA monitor. I've read
the display wiki and get the feeling it can be done, but I don't know
how. Can someone help me with a circuit to accomplish this? I've got
a breakout-gs board and alot of wirewrap wire. And of course a VGA
I'm thinking I'll need a DAC? Any suggestions to part? Digikey is my

Hi All -
Have a gumstix connex 200xm, a NetMMC and a USB PWR SMT
When I connect all 3 together and place the power cord in the NetMMC, the
system boots up no problem, the ethernet comes up and gets an IP address
When I connect only the Gumstix and the NetMMC, the system hangs, the
ethernet does not come up - Any Ideas?

My guess is that it's dropping into uboot because it thinks a
character has been pressed. There needs to be a pull-up resistor on
one of the serial lines, and this wouldn't be present when no board is
plugged into the 60 pin connector.
Maybe uboot should be modified so that it only drops into uboot if a
certain character is detected (like CR or space)?
