I can't access 192.168.7.2 after flashing Debian 8.2 to eMMC.

  • I can’t access 192.168.7.2 after flashing Debian 8.2 to eMMC.
  • How do I enable it?
  • I loaded up the latest image to an SD card.
  • Runs great when booted from SD card, both E:\ and 192.168.7.2 methods work.
  • Edited /boot/uEnv.txt to enable flash
  • Flashed to eMMC.
  • Boots fine, I get the FAT partition on host PC (Windows 7 Pro).
  • But I no longer have 192.168.7.2.
  • Reboot with a virgin image on SD card and I get ethernet over usb again.
  • Reflash with flashing image and same bum result.
  • Debian 8.2 (BeagleBone, BeagleBone Black, Seeed BeagleBone Green, Arrow BeagleBone Black Industrial - 2GB SD) 2015-11-12

I saw the same behavior and accidently found a workaround which may help. I was testing wireless drivers on the BBB at the time.

I run my BBB attached to a powered USB hub which is plugged into the host PC running either Windows 7 or 10; or Ubuntu Linux 14.04.3. Delian 8.2 is running dnsmasq out of the box, so it will offer DHCP leases over USB on 192.168.7.x. Adding a DHCP entry to /etc/network/interfaces for the device USB0, gives me a functional network connection to the BBB.

Doing the equivalent reliably in Windows is more difficult so I refer you to https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831538.aspx. I was able to get it to work by turning off all other network devices and broadcasting for a DHCP lease.

I’m not involved enough with the beagleboard project to know whether this is by design or a happy accident, but I hopefully someone else can fill in the blanks.

That image is broken, use a known good snapshot:

Regards,

I am very confused, is that not one of the

Recommended Debian Images

at the very top of the beagleboard.org web page???

http://beagleboard.org/latest-images

I'm not sure what you are confused about..

You reported some bugs, i replied that yes that image is broken, use
one of the ones listed here:

http://elinux.org/Beagleboard:BeagleBoneBlack_Debian#Debian_Image_Testing_Snapshots

But feel free to keep on using the "8.2 2015-11-12 snapshot", you'll
probably find more bugs that we've already fixed and pushed fixes for.
