I am using ubuntu 14.04 (from Robert Nelson) with a custom 3.15.10-bone8 kernel on Beaglebone Black. HDMI is disabled.
When I plug the board to a PC, Beaglebone powers up but the PC does not recognize that a USB device is connected to it. I have installed the drivers for network-over-USB which is recommended on Beagleboard.org/getting-started too. Moreover, I cannot ssh into it using 192.168.7.2 eventhough I have set up my /etc/network/interfaces.
ubuntu@arm $ ifconfig usb0
usb0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr d2:56:2f:23:1d:e2

Is there some modules that I need to run or compile to Kernel to bring the client USB up? How should I configure the linux to be seen by PC when connected from mini USB?
Thanks for any help.
