This month's VFAT image for the Beaglebone Black is badly broken. If you 
want something workable use an older 
contains a kernel which keep oops'ing on certain operations, like an 
outbound slogin attempt. I reported that and the response was kernel RPM 
3.12.5-302 which results in a board which will not boot at all.

It looks like kernel-3.12.5-302 fixes various things for x86_64 
machines, so it is an improvement for them, yet it really wrecks an ARM 
installation. I guess we can expect ARM to always be a secondary 
architecture, with anything that benefits x86_64 users being pushed, 
regardless of its effects on other users.
