I finally managed to get a direct connection between the gumstix and my
computer. I have a verdex xm4bt, consolelcd-vx, and a netmicroSD-vx, and I'm
using Dave Hylands' r1533 filesystem images. I made a cross-over cable, and
connected the straight side to the gumstix and the cross-over one to my PC.
If you're using VMware to connect to your gumstix via ethernet, make sure
you select the 'Bridged' option on the Ethernet button before you start
running the image.
Once the image boots, open the terminal and enter
/sbin/ifconfig , if you're using Fedora like me
You'll see something like this:
eth Link encap: Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:29:A9:3E:FB
inet addr:WW.XX.YY.ZZ Bcast:10.0.10.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
and some more lines. See that WW.XX.YY.ZZ? Write down whatever numbers show
up for you.
Start your gumstix, and once you've logged in, type
ifconfig eth0 WW.XX.YY.AA
where WW=10, XX=0, YY=10, AA=any number but ZZ
Your gumstix ip should now have the same first three numbers as the ip on
Now, type the following on your PC (I'm assuming that your linux has ssh
ssh will ask you for a password (in my case it's still gumstix), and you'll
be logged in through your PC.
To exit just enter
Now, if you want to transfer files, you can use scp. Let's say you have a
file called hello. To transfer it to the gumstix, just do the following:
scp ./hello root@...:hello
Again, it will ask you for the gumstix password, and it will transfer the
That's as far as I've got, I hope someone finds this helpful...It would have
been so awesome if I'd seen this somewhere in the wiki!
