I just purchased a beaglebone black RevC with 4gb eMMC onboard. I’ve connected it via RJ45 and usb host port to my pc. Copied the onboard mkudevrule.sh script onto my desktop and used “chmod +x” and then “./mkudevrule.sh”. Tried to access the board with “192.168.7.2” and “192.168.6.2”. It times out everytime and i am not able to access the board. Please help.
doesn't apply to the BeagleBone Black..
It's only useful for the old original "BeagleBone" aka the white..
Back before we got it's id pushed to mainline.. (back in the 2.6.x/3.x era)
For most distro's, out of the box you should either see 1 or 2 new
interfaces by running:
sudo ifconfig -a
if not, just save yourself by reflashing with the latest "monthly"
use etcher.io to help flash the microSD card.
No, i think you have misunderstood me. I meant i installed the udev rules that already existed onboard the beaglebone black in the “drivers” folder. The beaglebone also did not work before i did this. Regardless, i have solved this problem. The builtin network manager in Ubuntu was giving me troubles so i switched it out to “WICD” earlier this month. I guessed WICD was causing the problem, so reinstallled the network manager and uninstalled WICD and it works like a charm! I am now able to completely access it and have started tutorials. Thanks for the help! By the way, which language do you think i should work on, considering i have some experience with Embedded C and Atmel AVR’s ? And, it would be a great help if you could send me some links to books in that language.
