My apologies – if you are logged in as root, you don’t need “sudo”.
Also, I should have typed “ifconfig –a”, not “ifconfig –all”.
So, in correction:
“ifconfig eth1 up”
Sorry about that,
I tried the following statements with the output as follows:
root@overo:~# ifconfig -all
ifconfig: -all: error fetching interface information: Device not found
root@overo:~# sudo ifconfig eth1 up
-sh: sudo: not found
root@overo:~# sudo dhclient eth1
-sh: sudo: not found
root@overo:~# ifconfig eth1 up
ifconfig: SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device
root@overo:~# dhclient eth1
ifconfig: SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
Does this mean that the eth1 is not detected. Does it have to be initialized somewhere?

Can you try typing:
“ifconfig –all” – and see if eth1 appears in that list?
If it does, try:
“sudo ifconfig eth1 up”
“sudo dhclient eth1”
...If that works, you can make the change permanent by editing /proc/network/interfaces (google for syntax or copy what’s there).
I have tried to design an expansion board which is exactly similar to the Tobi-Duo in its schematics (and also has 2 ethernet ports).
I built a very simple kernel image comprised of from an online builder (http://narcissus.angstrom-distribution.org/).
During run-time, when I try 'ifconfig -a', I am shown two connections - 'eth0' (this one works completely fine) and 'lo' (Link encap: Local Loopback .......). Although I expect eth1 to appear, it does not.
I am pretty sure that the hardware of the expansion board is fine because I noticed that if I use an online standard kernel image downloaded from http://cumulus.gumstix.org/images/angstrom/factory/, both eth0 and eth1 do work! However, I would rather not use such a bulky kernel for a simple task of mine.
Why is the eth1 not initialized/ready? I would appreciate any suggestions to help me solve this issue.
Thanks! Have a cheerful day :)
