Get Angstrom kernel config file (config.gz)

Because I want to compare and know the difference between Angstrom kernel config file and Fedora17 arm config file. I burn the Angstrom image on SD card and boot it up to find the config file.

Gloria IP shared me a link to download Angstrom image file:  and the file is “Angstrom-Cloud9-IDE-GNOME-eglibc-ipk-v2012.05-beaglebone-2012.09.12.img.xz”

After download, run command:
# xz -dkc Angstrom-Cloud9-IDE-GNOME-eglibc-ipk-v2012.05-beaglebone-2012.09.12.img.xz > /dev/sdX          (write the image to your SD card, X should be replace to your SD card)

# sync

Copy file to out side:

directory: /proc/
root@beaglebone:/proc#scp config.gz

Host ‘’ is not in the trusted hosts file.
