Unfortunately I’m learning Linux and the gumstix at the same time…   (u-boot version 1.1.4, Linux version 2.6.21gum)


I have an XL6P with a netCF board. I’ve run buildroot and successfully loaded a new rootfs. (with lots of screw-ups and retries) However now I have the following problems:


  1. The Ethernet interface is not working and there are plenty of error messages below. I’m just not sure how to fix it or what I screwed up. (see red highlights below. Also, one of the Ethernet LEDS is on and the other is blinking.)
    1. Is there anything beyond the defconfig that is needed to make Eth0 work?? If not I should probably just start clean, re-download from SVN and rebuild. (I actually did enable the DHCP client, but it didn’t help)
  2. The Compact Flash doesn’t mount like it used to with the ‘mount /mnt/cf’ command. (error message below)
    mount: Mounting /dev/hda1 on /mnt/cf failed: No such file or directory’
    1. Again, is there anything beyond defconfig that is needed to make Compact flash work??

  3. Does the generic factory image pointed to on the wiki support verdex. It seems to be from November.  …little confused as to how one factory image could support all the various motherboards??


…sorry for the long email.
