I’m trying to flash a fresh image but after holding the user/boot button while connecting to USB, and watching the lights go through the boot sequence (all light up solid, then some begin to flash), the lights go into a flashing pattern that never stops, and my Mac shows no mention of the BeagleBone in the network adapters list.
The flashing pattern is like this:
The D2 LED (closest to the corner) repeats a pattern of flashing twice and pausing. And the D4 LED (2nd closest to the LAN jack) stays flickers but it’s very very dim.
I’m confident the USB cable I’m using is a data cable because it has a ferrite noise filter. On my macbook air I have to use an adapter because there’s no built-in USB type A, only USB type C, so to rule out the adapter as a possible problem, I tried connecting with my iMac built-in USB type A port, but I got the same result.
Thank you. I decided to just flash the image that you linked me to, it didn’t take long. So I think the flashing process worked, because this time I saw the Cylon light pattern, and then it stopped and all four lights went out, as the docs describe. So I pulled power, removed the SD card, and tried to connect on my mac, but the network adapters still show this:
And trying to reach either 192.168.6.2 or 192.168.7.2 doesn’t work. Am I doing something wrong?
I recently purchased a MBP Apple Silicon and I followed this thread because the drivers do not work on ARM. I was able to see my BBB in my network connections but only with a self assigned IP, did you have this issue?
Thanks for the fast response! What’s happened since I’ve posted is that yes, the ncn driver on the latest image works for passing through the internet on USB. Each time I reboot I have to run dhclient before the internet functions. I can reach the internet and reach the cloud9 IDE from my host browser. I cannot, however, reach the actual BBB interface. So:
Internet over USB works
cloud9 interface is reachable
BBB interface is not reachable
