Beagleboard Xm USB and Ethernet not working

Hi everybody,

I’m new to the Linux environment, so for start I’ve acquired BB Xm Rev B. I have managed to install Angstrom Linux using these instructions:

I have downloaded a distribution from this site

I have managed to run Linux with some boot args that I’ve found on the net.

The only problem the USB and the Ethernet don’t work, first they worked fine with the original SD card, but after I did something (I think update) is stopped working (I don’t think it’s a hardware problem).

I’ve read that there were changes from Rev B board and Rev C board. How do I know which distribution/u-boot is good for my board?
How do I diagnose the problem?
Has someone encountered similar problem?
What should I do?

Thank you very much

Best regards
