Hi, I am trying to use the PoE Mezzanine with Rock960-B and Debian image. However the drivers seem to be missing for a LAN78xx. Seems like this should be a modprobe module, however the debian image for this card does not seem to have any kernel modules present. I would appreciate any advice on how to install the LAN7850 driver.
You can update your kernel from: https://apt.96rocks.com/
Follow instructions from https://apt.96rocks.com/
and then install the following package:
sudo apt-get install rockchip-overlay rockchip-fstab
sudo apt-get install rock960ab-rk-u-boot-latest
Type YES to update the uboot.img flashing.
sudo apt-get install linux-base
sudo apt-get install linux-4.4-latest
Reboot and check if you your kernel is updated
Now you should have the kernel modules installed
Thank you - that seemed to have successfully loaded the ethernet driver and I now have the eth0 interface. I am still unable to connect to a network however and keep getting a “network unreachable” error.
Will keep investigating.
Thank you for your answer above.
