How to use the USB-Ethernet-Gadget for NFS-Boot?

Hey all,

 

we have a custom board, based on the i.MX6SXSABRESD evaluation board. We have two usb ports, one of them is an USB-OTG port. Now we want the kernel to mount the rootfs via nfs, using the USB-OTG port. Maybe someone can give me some advice how to do this.

When the linux system is up, I can create the virtual network interface by typing

"ifconfig usb0 <TARGET IP ADDRESS>"

After configuration of the target, I can create the interface on the host side, by typing

"sudo ifconfig usb0 <HOST IP ADDRESS>"

This shows that the usb port works in principle.

 

It would be nice if someone can tell me what to do to get the board booted via NFS.

 

 

Best regards

 

Benjamin
