BBB and netconsole


I am trying to get netconsole to run.

While rebooting the beaglebone black I cannot catch a single

After boot succeeds I logged into the bbb and looked into the dmesg
and found:

[ 0.534963] netpoll: netconsole: local port 6665
[ 0.534994] netpoll: netconsole: local IP
[ 0.535010] netpoll: netconsole: interface 'eth0'
[ 0.535024] netpoll: netconsole: remote port 6666
[ 0.535038] netpoll: netconsole: remote IP
[ 0.535054] netpoll: netconsole: remote ethernet address XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
[ 0.535073] netpoll: netconsole: eth0 doesn't exist, aborting
[ 0.535087] netconsole: cleaning up

(XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX is a placeholder for the real MAC, which I added to
the optargs)

I thought, that netconsole will initialze eth0 as soon as possible.
Instead it reports, that it could not find eth0.

I think I miss an aspect of this thingy...but what?

How can I make this work?

Thank you very much in advance for any help!

Best regards,
