BeagleBone Mathematica

Posted 10 years ago

Would it be possible to add the functionality of the Raspberry Pi's mathematica onto a Beaglebone Black? If so, how? Thank you very help.

I was in a beta program where I was running Mathematica on my BeagleBone. The program has ended and I don't know the status of Mathematica on the Bone.

After researching some more, I found that Wolfram actually was making a Mathematica release for arm that would work on the Beaglebone, and to email prerelease@wolfram.com and ask about it. I did, and I haven't gotten a response back yet...

Well I'm certainly interested in learning if this works out, and if the better specs of BBB actually have a noticeable impact on Mathematica performance (I'm doubtful). Also, I know that the recommendation is 0.5 GB for Mathematica, I've run in to problems during install, suggesting that there's a fair amount of temporary files that make 4 GB a tight squeeze.

Just speculation, in an attempt to get the conversation going. Both systems run Debian, so getting the wolfram-engine package to install shouldn't be a problem. I'm assuming that ARM v7 is backwards compatible (RPi uses v6). The biggest problem may be disk storage. On a 4GB SD card with the RPi, I ran into disk-full errors when trying to install on anything but a fresh Raspian image.

Do you have a BBB to play with or are you considering a purchase?

Considering a purchase. Considering that the Mathematica on Raspbian only reccomends having half a gigabyte of storage for mathematica, storage shouldn't be an issue. The main reason I would like to use a Beaglebone is because the Beaglebone has much better specs than the Raspi, and not much more expensive.
