Hello all,

 

We have a design, based on the IMX51 EVK. Bootloader is uboot and operating system is linux (2.6.31). Now I have this problem that linux seems to be unable to find its macaddress. It's defined in uboot though. So I'm unable to start the network once linux is started. If I boot the kernel from the network (tftp), everything is fine.

Anybody any clue?
