Ethernet connection on T1040RDB evaluation board

Hi all,

 

I currently try to "quickle" run some indivdual test and benchmark code on the T1040RDB evaluation board I currently have. Unfortunately the currently installed kernel does not include any coepages needed to use MMC cards or USB sticks. And I have no clue how to get the network working - there are several interfaces:

root@t1040rdb:~# ip link show

1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT

    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00

2: fm1-gb0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT qlen 1000

    link/ether 00:04:9f:03:3a:97 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

3: fm1-gb1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT qlen 1000

    link/ether 00:04:9f:03:3a:98 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

4: fm1-gb2: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state DOWN mode DEFAULT qlen 1000

    link/ether 00:04:9f:03:3a:99 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

5: fm1-gb3: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP mode DEFAULT qlen 1000

    link/ether 00:04:9f:03:3a:9a brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

6: fm1-gb4: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state DOWN mode DEFAULT qlen 1000

    link/ether 00:04:9f:03:3a:9b brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

7: tunl0: <NOARP> mtu 1480 qdisc noop state DOWN mode DEFAULT

    link/ipip 0.0.0.0 brd 0.0.0.0

8: sit0: <NOARP> mtu 1480 qdisc noop state DOWN mode DEFAULT

    link/sit 0.0.0.0 brd 0.0.0.0

9: ip6tnl0: <NOARP> mtu 1452 qdisc noop state DOWN mode DEFAULT

    link/tunnel6 :: brd ::

root@t1040rdb:~#

My cable is connected to "ETH0" (labled on the eval boards case) - but even if I bring up fm1-gb0-4 with different IPs (and the default route is also present, MAC addresses are properly set) I'm not able to connect or ping the board. If I try a "ping" in the uboot promt it tries different interfaces (FM1@DTSEC2, FM1@DTSEC3, FM1@DTSEC4) and it tells me finally

Using FM1@DTSEC4 device

host 192.168.1.1 is alive

 

On Freescales homepage I haven't found any useful documentation.

Anyone can help with this?
