Beagleboard ethernet gadget with Windows XP

Hi there, I am a newbie and facing some difficulty trying to set up the beagle as ethernet gadget (RNDIS).

My beagle is running Angstrom distro based on kernel 2.6.29. While connecting the usb-otg to
a windows XP machine, the kernel panic as shown in log below.
The windows inf file I used is also attached.

Could anone please advise? Thanks in advance.

kernel log:

can you try this with a kernel off of the head of linux-omap as well?

Hi,
I downloaded the latest by doing:
$ git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tmlind/linux-omap-2.6.git linux-omap-2.6
and then using the omap3_beagle_defconfig to build the uImage off the head.

But the board get stuck while trying to boot the kernel.
Did I miss out anything ?

The console output:

Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 80300000 …

Apply this patch from omap-testing...

Hi,
Thanks for replying. This patch is already in my code, and it does not help.

I recall someone mentioned in the mailing list this could be due to errors in omap3_beagle_defconfig that is missing config for tlw4030, regulator etc etc ?.

Can someone please send me a copy of omap3_beagle_defconfig that works with the lastest code ?

Hi,
Finally I get the board to boot by disablling the frambuffer support.

However, kernel still panic (same as before) when plugged into Windows XP as RNDIS gadget.

The kernel I used now is 2.6.32-rc5.
