How to setup static ip using USB ethernet permanently


I hope you can help me.

I am running Arnstrong microSD that came with my BB-Xm

although I have edited /etc/network/interfaces, to setup static IP,
the changes don't remain after rebooting .. how can I make any changes
(to configuration files ) permanent and valid after rebooting ?

Also any files I copy across network to say : /home/root dissappear
after rebooting, how can I get files to remain ?

Many thanks.



For this to work , you have to make changes in the kernel
distribution. As all the changes you are doing will be coming under
romfs, it will get changed once you reboot the board. So try to get
the kernel and make your changes there.
