-\section{Tests on the IGEPv2 board}
-If you have graphical displays to connect your IGEPv2 board to (LCD
-display with DVI-D or HDMI input, TI Pico Projector...), and the
-corresponding cables (HDMI to DVI-D or HDMI to HDMI), you can test
-your root filesystem on the board.
-You can skip to the next section if you don't have a display.
-Here's what you can do:
-\item Continue to use the same kernel as in the previous labs
-\item Extract the tar file for the generated root filesystem in a
-\code{nfsroot} directory. Make your board boot on this directory. 
-\item In the root filesystem, you may need to edit \code{etc/inittab}
-  uncomment the line with \code{ttyS0}, and replace all the occurrences
-  of \code{tty1} by \code{tty0} (Caution: this is a {\em zero} character
-  this time.
-\item Connect your board to an DVI-D or HDMI display
-\item Rebuild your kernel with the below configuration settings
-(successfully tested with Linux 3.2):
-##CONFIG_PANEL_PICODLP=y (if you use the TI Pico Projector)
-Note that the USB settings are only needed if you want to connect a USB
-mouse and keyboard (behind a USB 2.0 hub), to interact with the
-framebuffer console and with the DirectFB programs.
-To make your life simpler, we also included a complete Linux
-configuration file in the \code{data} folder in the lab directory.
-\item Add the following settings to the boot arguments:
-  \begin{itemize}
-  \item \code{console=tty0}\\(allows you to have both a framebuffer
-    and serial console)
-  \item \code{vram=12M}\\(video RAM)
-  \item \code{omapfb.mode=dvi:640x480MR-16 at 60}\\(example for the
-    Pico Projector. You may first try to do without this parameter,
-    and then specify a mode that your monitor supports).
-  \end{itemize}
