[beagleboard] Re: nfs (usb) mounting problem


Answers to below questions ..

1. 2.6.29-rc8 taken from kernel.org
2. 2.6.22 source taken from http://code.google.com/p/beagleboard/wiki/BeagleSourceCode site ... (I'll assume 'texas' site?)

I did notice the follow string output for the failure case only ...
   "usbmon: debugfs is not available"

located directly after ..
Creating 5 MTD partitions on "omap2-nand":
0x000000000000-0x000000080000 : "X-Loader"
0x000000080000-0x000000260000 : "U-Boot"
0x000000260000-0x000000280000 : "U-Boot Env"
0x000000280000-0x000000680000 : "Kernel"
0x000000680000-0x000010000000 : "File System"

.. don't know if this helps.

I patched in the time delay change mentioned below (500 ->5000) with the same problem results.

I'll install 2.6.28-r14 as you noted below & give that a shot.
Thanks a lot for your help !!

read /linux-2.6/Documentation/usb/usbmon.txt .
mount -t debugfs none_debugs /sys/kernel/debug
But, really, the kernel is booting, and this is important, maybe it
lacks some config related to usb.

The easier way is to buy a 5V DC regulator, an hub, a mini A to mini B
cable and usb to ethernet from apple store.

But could be very nice to start directly in nfs powering the
beagleboard directly from usb, I know!

I have written this small guide for nfs using the easier setup:
