Can't connect via ethernet

Postby CIB » Sat Oct 25, 2014 6:00 pm

Okay, so this weekend I tried for the first time to get my pre-order board to work. Got serial debugger set up and all, but it's not helping much.

First I tried the headless kernel and FPGA files. That gave me something about "selinux couldn't be found", at which point the boot would freeze.

Now I tried the regular kernel and FPGA files, it gets to "Uncompressing Linux... done, booting kernel" and then freezes there.

I'm just about ready to chuck the board back into the drawer and not take it out again. Any ideas?

Mail it to me? ;)

Seriously, other than checking and re-checking that the files are uncorrupted and complete (re-build your SD from scratch perhaps?) I'm not sure what to advise. My pre-order boards "just worked", modulo the USB issue and several problems (none of which were Parallella related) building the SD cards.

Give it another go and then mail adapteva to see whether your board can be RMA-ed is the best I can offer.

It seems that it actually boots, I just can't connect via LAN.

Code: Select all
sudo dhcpcd eno1
dhcpcd[2450]: version 6.5.1 starting
dhcpcd[2450]: eno1: adding address fe80::cad0:d801:3fd4:48e1

dhcpcd[2450]: eno1: soliciting a DHCP lease
