Chinab,

 

I would suggest at this stage that you try the default Angstrom build from the Gumstix development web site. I’m outside my own experience now, but I’ve read that there was an updated Ethernet part which wasn’t compatible with previous kernels. If that’s the case, and assuming that you don’t have any board issues, then their build is the best place to start to verify its working first.

 

After its up and running, you can optimise later.

 

Ben

Hi Ben,

I typed all those commands as well and still it does not show me eth1. "ifconfig eth1 up" and "dhclient eth1" shows me the same output as previous: ifconfig: SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device

Is it because my smsc driver is very old? I am thinking so because my boot log shows the following:

smsc911x: Driver version 2008-10-21.                                           
smsc911x-mdio: probed                                                          
eth0: attached PHY driver [Generic PHY] (mii_bus:phy_addr=ffffffff:01, irq=-1) 
net eth0: MAC Address: 00:15:c9:28:e3:8e 

It shows nothing relating to eth1 at all.

Thanks

Chinab

Chinab,

 

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 –a”

“ifconfig eth1 up”

“dhclient eth1”

 

Sorry about that,

Ben

Hi Ben,

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?

Cinab,

 

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).

Subject: [Gumstix-users] eth1 not working in Gumstix

 

Hi All,

 

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 :)

 

Chinab
