Hello! I am trying to adapt an application for UBports (on a BQ Aquarius E4.5) that needs to use an OTG Ethernet adapter. I have tried with 3 brands with same result: an
lsusb shows the device, but no new network interface appears in an
ifconfig -a command.
On the other hand, the same 3 OTG Ethernet devices do work perfectly in an Ubuntu 16.04 box in desktop environment, and create the interface and immediately get connectivity from DHCP server.
/var/log/syslog shows that:
Jun 24 20:57:25 ubuntu-phablet kernel: [ 1282.448276][USBPHY]slew calibration:FM_OUT =334,x=4120,value=4
Jun 24 20:57:26 ubuntu-phablet kernel: [ 1283.027235]usb 1-1: new full-speed USB device number 4 using musb-hdrc
And an lsusb in one of the devices:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0fe6:9700 Kontron (Industrial Computer Source / ICS Advent) DM9601 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
My UBports version:
Welcome to Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.4.67 armv7l)
Maybe I should create the network interface manually or add some drivers to the system?
Any clues on what to look into next?
Thanks in advance!! _()_
