In this video I go through the steps required to build the Linux kernel for the Beaglebone and show the steps that are required to deploy the kernel to an existing distribution. I download the Ubuntu Arm minimal distribution and deploy it and the kernel together. I then show how we can get Wi-Fi working using two small USB Wifi adapters that are based on the Realtek RTL8192CU chipset. Both of these adapters are less than €10 ($13 USD) in price and can be bought directly from suppliers such as Amazon: The "Edimax EW-7811" and the "Duronic IR786" are the two devices that are tested in this video. Finally, I demonstrate how I would compile and deploy a custom driver using the 8192CU driver that is available from the Realtek website.

This video is based on the work of many helpful guides that are available online, such as:

And the README that is available with the RobertCNelson linux-dev release.
