Howdy Bill,

 

Are you using udev? If so, what are the contents of your /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file?

 

Cheers,

 

~Akram.

Hi Curt;

 

I did what you and Tuomas suggested. I un-commented the lines.

This is what I got at boot and from “ifconfig –a” :

 

Configuring network interfaces... eth0: unknown interface: No such device

eth0: unknown interface: No such device

eth0      No such device

 

SIOCSIFADDR: No such device

eth0: unknown interface: No such device

eth0: unknown interface: No such device

Failed to bring up eth0.

done.

 

root@omap3-multi:~# ifconfig -a

          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0

You've probably checked all the obvious stuff, but in /etc/network/interfaces have you uncommented the "auto eth0" and "iface eth0 inet dhcp" lines?

 

Curt.

Hi All;

 

I double checked that the com board was seated properly and tried a console image I

Built previously with Steve Sakoman’s script …

 

Still no joy. I get the same error message as before …

 

I have it in the back of my mind that there was a device driver conflict in the Kernel or something

But darned if I can remember what …
