Beaglebone and Ubuntu

I’m trying to get Ubuntu running on my Beaglebone. I followed the instructions at, and I couldn’t get past “running scripts/init-bottom”, it would just hang. A friend of mine figured out that if you run “ifconfig usb0 up” on the host computer, it would finish booting. I’m trying to figure out how to disable usb0 on the beaglebone so i don’t have to boot it on usb all the time.

Powering via 5Vdc and having the Ethernet plugged in doesn't work?


okay that worked.
