I purchased a Core Kit and Vision Kit, and have a problem with both boards.
I allocated a static IP address via
I noticed that the IPv4 address of
eth0 on RB5 falls back to
169.254.4.1, after a reboot or device disconnection. Here’s the steps to reproduce.
QRB5126.96.36.199.0.012.1_r003006.2_perfon Qualcomm RB5 using Qualcomm’s sdkmanager
- connect a board to eth0 via RJ45
sudo apt-get install ethtool net-tools netplan.io ifupdown2 sudo
sudo vi /etc/netplan/01-network-manager-all.yamland fill
#Let NetworkManager manage all devices on this system network: version: 2 renderer: NetworkManager
- Fill /etc/network/interfaces as follows:
source /etc/network/interfaces.d/* auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 10.2.100.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 link-speed 100 link-duplex full ethernet-autoneg off
sudo ifdown -v eth0 && sudo ifup -v eth0
Step 7 should be done only once, not every time one reboots the board.
On a side note, could you share a better way of managing network interfaces other than
/etc/network/interfaces, if any?
Also, I noticed that the MAC address changes as well. Is this normal? (Not that this impedes my endeavor at the moment.)
Thank you in advance.
