Hi Tormod,

Thanks! I'll try that now and report back.
It did look suspicious to me too, but two BeagleBone websites had the ./configure flags set the way I tried, but I believe it's very likely the websites are outdated
(this is a common problem with BeagleBone Black info, there is a lot of outdated or incorrect information on websites : (
I'll write it up once I get it running.

Thanks again for your help.

I believe you'll need to configure your xenomai libraries for SMP. It
defaults to --enable-smp=yes only on x86/cobalt, otherwise to

Note the "SMP" in the kernel signature above.
