The config-file setting of /etc/network/interfaces for a nfs service on iMX6q,the platform sabre-auto can't start a eth0 when power in

and the commond $ifconfig typing it will return nothing.


root@imx6qsabreauto:~# ifconfig




setting of /etc/network/interfaces:


# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)


# The loopback interface

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback



# Wireless interfaces

iface wlan0 inet dhcp

        wireless_mode managed

        wireless_essid any

        wpa-driver wext

        wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf


iface atml0 inet dhcp


# Wired or wireless interfaces

auto eth0

iface eth0 inet static




# Ethernet/RNDIS gadget (g_ether)

# ... or on host side, usbnet and random hwaddr

iface usb0 inet static                      






# Bluetooth networking



when I input ifconfig eth0 up

root@imx6qsabreauto:/etc/network# ifconfig eth0 up

fec 2188000.ethernet eth0: no PHY, assuming direct connection to switch

libphy: PHY fixed-0:00 not found

fec 2188000.ethernet eth0: could not attach to PHY

ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device


and ifconfig eth0

root@imx6qsabreauto:/etc/network# ifconfig eth0  

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:04:9F:03:BC:A9 

          BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000

          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
