Trouble creating a BeagleBone Static IP

I am totally a nenwbie to BBB - I am having trouble connecting it to my pc through ethernet. I am using Angstrom. I’ve tried following the instructions here: http://derekmolloy.ie/set-ip-address-to-be-static-on-the-beaglebone-black/ but then I run into lots of errors:

I cannot find the ethernet_c8a030ab323a_cable# Derek speaks about, I cannot fint the /etc/network/interfaces to try to edit the file indicated by Derek.

Any idea why I am getting those errors? You help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Flash Debian on it, I don't think anybody is supporting angstrom on the
BBB ANYMORE

Lidia,

I think you got a corrupted file.

Install your SO again and follow what Robert says

Here the syntax:

sudo connmanctl config --ipv4 manual <ip_addr> --nameservers <dns_server>

run:

debian@beaglebone:~$ connmanctl services
