[03:36:06]OMAP2 and OMAP3 can run ARM and DSP together. IVA2.2 is the Imaging, Video, and Audio accelerator sub-system, used in OMAP35x. [11:17:53] Quetoo is OpenGL only. Polymide is an orange, high temperature plastic tape that does not get melted by solder. It is used frequently as a heat shield and an insulator. It is more commonly known as kapton tape. [00:31:03] I learned that there are no royalty fees for the Beagle Board. [00:32:41] I also learned that the Beagle Board is meant more for learning OMAP, versus it being used to build systems.

[07:41:43] Angstrom uses opkg. opkg is a lightweight package managment sysem based off of Ipkg. The upgrade includes (but is not limited to) the ability to re-organize and clean up source codes into sub directories, mark auto-installed packages, and contains an additional command line for the purpose of removing "auto installed" packages. [09:01:19] Bitbake makes its packages by using ipkg-build(package). Even so, both packages are the same, regardless of whether or not it uses opkg or ipkg in the root.
