Hi All,

I received my Fienix USB stick from AOTL today! :-)

I had the same issue on my X5000 and X1000. I disabled the "Dummy" connection but it didn't solve the issue. I was able to solve this issue with /sbin/dhclient <network device>. I would recommend to use ip a or /sbin/ifconfig -a to figure out the correct network device. I wasn't able to boot a kernel from the vfat partiton of the Fienix USB stick with the X1000. I copied the kernel 4.20 to the vfat partition again and after that the kernel booted without any problems. I was able to load the kernel 4.20 and the dtb file after the command usb reset from the Fienix USB stick with my X5000.

Cheers,
Christian

Unfortunately to set up the network device with the dhclient is only a temporary solution. You have to set up the network device again after a restart. I figured out, where the problem is today. The dummy interface is configured in the file /etc/network/interfaces. I removed the following lines in this file:

Code: Select all

iface dummy0 inet dhcp

auto dummy0
I added the following lines for the network devices installed in my X1000 and X5000:

Code: Select all

# X5000

iface enP4096p4s4 inet dhcp

auto enP4096p4s4

# X1000

iface enp0s20f3 inet dhcp

auto enp0s20f3

After that the network connections automatically work after booting the X5000 and X1000.

BTW, I boot the Fienix USB stick with the following commands:

X5000:

Code: Select all

X5000> setenv bootargs root=/dev/sdb2 rootdelay=5

Code: Select all

X5000> usb reset

Code: Select all

X5000> load usb 0:1 1000000 uImage-4.20

Code: Select all

X5000> load usb 0:1 2000000 cyrus_p5020_eth_poweroff.dtb

Code: Select all

X5000> bootm 1000000 - 2000000
X1000:

Code: Select all

CFE> setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sdd2 rootdelay=5"
Insert the Fienix USB stick

Code: Select all

CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs -z usbdisk0:zImage-4.20

Sad to say I've followed all the changes in both this thread & the x5000 thread & the network just isn't working for me. Both my 12.04 & 16.04 live DVDs boot with working network with my 8169 card. what I did was make a single partition & then dd'ed the Fienix stick contents to it, "sudo dd if=/dev/sde2 of=/dev/sdb". I have a feeling that doesn't make for a normal Linux drive. Can you guys tell me how a simple linux drive should be formatted? I've looked on the internet, but maybe just 'root', 'home' & 'swap' ?

All my DVD & HD linux attempts have different issues on this x1000, could be that linux was never mean't to be, not a major problem, just bugs me. :-)

Did you modify the file /etc/network/interfaces? I modified it and I don’t have any problems with the network on my X1000 and X5000.

I did, dummy0 still shows up, but enp6s6 (8169) shows as "up" in the network icon prefs & in Ifconfig -a. On board network (enp0s20f3) doesn't get me going either. I notice the time settings doesn't stick as well, just seems like the install is wrong. I am using a wired network switch to connect all my network h/w connections, hmm, something I'll bypass tomorrow & go direct to see if thats a problem. But I would like to do a re-install the correct way.
