I'm considering buying the iMX233-OLinuXino-MAXI and the preinstalled SD but I'm wondering about how to get access to a console.

  • Does the SD boot with an SSH server started?

  • Should I buy the VGA UEXT module? (I don't own a device with a TV input)

  • Will the VGA UEXT module work out of the box with the preinstalled SD?

MOD-VGA is designed for arduino boards so they will not work out of the box with olinuxino boards.

You an access console from your PC using a 3.3V USB to serial interface connected on olinuxino's U_DEBUG connector. After login, you can setup network and ssh server same as you do on your linux host PC.
