HP 110T PCIe Network card (Intel 82572EI) with iMX6Q SABRE SD

Hi everyone,


I am currently using the Freescale SABRE SD board to evaluate the suitability of the iMX6Q chip for an upcoming project. I am trying out both buildroot and yocto to create the kernel and root filesystem.


I am trying to get the board working with an HP 110T PCIe network card. This card is based on an Intel 82572EI chip which can be used with the e1000e driver. I am able to see the network card ith the following kernel configurations:



# PCI host controller drivers  






# CONFIG_PCCARD is not set



But when I try and bring the interface up I am unable to communicate with the outside world.


Network interface configuration:

iface eth1 inet dhcp


Output from iup eth1:

udhcpc (v1.22.1) started

Sending discover...

Sending discover...

Sending discover...

No lease, failing


I have taken a look through the community questions related to setting up PCIe devices, but haven't managed to find any information that has helped me to get this working. Has anyone had experience getting a network card of this type working with the SABRE SD board?


I should mention I am running the standard imx6qsabresd configuration with Yocto 1.6.

Linux imx6qsabresd 3.10.17-1.0.1_ga+gdac46dc #5 SMP PREEMPT Wed Sep 17 14:30:17 BST 2014 armv7l GNU/Linux


Any help/comments/suggestions gratefully welcomed!
