BeagleBone Detection (distro)

Hi,

Before I go and try to create this - thinking someone likely already has :smile:. Does OS / distro detection work for BeagleBoard devices (e.g. BeagleBone AI)? It seems relatively easy to detect …

  1. grep -Fq ‘BeagleBoard.org’ /etc/issue.net; echo $? => this will be 0 if BeagleBoard.org exists
  2. sudo strings /dev/mmcblk1boot1 | cut -c -8 => comes from https://github.com/beagleboard/beaglebone-ai/wiki/System-Reference-Manual#board-id, provides Board Name

That’s about it I think. Right? Is it OK to modify distro to add this (then add the OS of course in LibreNMS)?

Thanks!
