Hi Scott

You asked "would it be appropriate to make a quick note of this somewhere on the gumstix users wiki?"

As the page to which you refer is located on the User Wiki, that page can be edited by anyone.

I will reply to my own post in the hopes that this helps someone else.
The problem was that the wlan0 interface definition in
/etc/network/interfaces was causing problems. When I commented it out
and rebooted, the link lights remained on upon booting and all of the
network services became available.

I realize the connex board is obsolete, but would it be appropriate to
make a quick note of this somewhere on the gumstix users wiki?

I found this build guide critically important to my success in building
OE for this board:

...but it really doesn't go into first-boot caveats. If someone would
point me in the right direction, I'd be happy to take care of this.

Thanks,

Scott
