kernel downloaded from TFTP get no ethaddr, IMX6Q

Question asked by Blangero Wang on Mar 14, 2014

Hi everyone:

     Recently I tested TFTP and NFS on my imx6Q, I found that if I download kernel from tftp, it can't get ethaddr.

     So if I want to boot from NFS

tftpboot ${loadaddr} ${kernel}

     lacking of ethaddr will cause :

IP-Config: Failed to open eth0 IP-Config: Device `eth0' not found.

     And if I want to boot from local rootfs, I'll get 00:00:00:00:00:00 eth0 addr.


     But if I boot from local kernel

                  

 mmc dev 0;mmc read ${loadaddr} 0x800 0x2000

     Everything goes well.


     All the environments are as below:
