I installed the 126.96.36.199-0.fc14.armv7l.omap kernel on my PandaBoard
(with Fedora 13) and it boots, but networking seems to be broken. The
interface name has reverted back to usb0 (it was eth0 with 2.6.39) and
even with the interface up and configured, I can't ping anything.
Do I need to update something else?
I'm not sure what to say, except that I obviously didn't get the latest
kernel into the f13 repo. It should be:
for the f13 softfp kernel to get Mark's patch. I'll get that fixed ASAP.
On the other hand, I am running 188.8.131.52-0.fc14 on a panda here,
$ uname -a
Linux panda-8.farm 184.108.40.206-0.fc14.armv7l.omap #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Aug
22 12:46:51 EDT 2011 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux
and networking is working fine, and is on eth0:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr E2:D6:6D:A3:52:EF
inet addr:192.168.xx.yy Bcast:192.168.255.255 Mask:255.255.0.0
I can ssh in, and pings out from that system also work.
I'm not sure what the problem could be, unless there is some difference
in your network hardware or configuration. Does the boot log provide
Note: I am using a static IP address for eth0 since the pandas may
assign an arbitrary MAC address when the system is restarted and DHCP
may fail. I'm not sure if this could be related to the problem you are
seeing or not.
