Joerg,

In my experience with those errors its a hardware issue that you will probably not be able to fix on your own. I had a very similar error with invalid chip endian and had to send it in. The new one worked perfectly.

Hi Joerg;

 

I’m no expert here, but it sounds like you have 3 out of four defective com’s  L

 

If I’m right there is no software fix for this. You have broken hardware …

 

Sorry;

 

Bill

Subject: [Gumstix-users] Overo TIDE ethernet problem.

 

All,

 

I have some TIDE COMs that seem to have the ethernet problem that has been described in multiple threads here. Since I am from the EU I would prefer if I could fix this myself rather than shipping the Overos around :D. Has there any solution been found?

 

My problem is:

I ordered 2x Tobi, 1x Stagecoach and 4x Overo Tide.

Two out of the four COMs give in all Tobis and in the stagecoach the following ethernet related error:
Net:   smc911x: Invalid chip endian 0x8765c321
see also: http://old.nabble.com/Overo-Tide-%2B-Tobi-no-Ethernet-worky-td31943543.html
http://blog.gmane.org/gmane.linux.distributions.gumstix.general/page=13
All Tides have the same label as mentioned in the thread.

One COM gives in all Tobis and in the stagecoach the following error:
Net:   smc911x: Unknown chip ID 9321

One COM WORKS in all Tobis and in the Stagecoach!

 

Thanks for your help,

--Joerg
