Can't connect to beaglebone black from arch linux host

Hi all,

I have a couple of beagle bone black but I ssh or access the http server or even successfully ping the board when connected through usb (haven’t tried ethernet).

My host machine is an arch linux, first of all, when I connect the board a new network interface appears (enp0s26u1u2):

The state is down and it has no IPv4 address assigned
If I set it to up: $ ip link set up dev enp0s26u1u2 the state switches to UNKNOWN:

$ ip addr
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN
link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
inet scope host lo
valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
inet6 ::1/128 scope host
valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
2: enp0s25: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN qlen 1000

inet6 fe80::9259:afff:fe54:31f/64 scope link
valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever


And ping to fails

The mass storage mounts alright but if I follow the link to the board http server I get no response.

Another thing I’ve noticed different from the guide is that there is a new device file in /dev: /dev/ttyACM0
but /etc/ttyUSB1 and /etc/ttyUSB2 are not present.

I am dying to try the board but I can’t even connect to it :frowning:

Help much appreciated.
