USB ethernet drivers for piCore v9.1pCP running on PizeroW
« on: April 28, 2018, 04:29:50 PM »
Hi guys , I need some help to get my USB hub+nic working on a PizeroW running piCore v9.1pCP.
The pi is running pcp3.5.0 ( regular) and has the WiFi nic running OK.
The USB part seems OK and dmesg reports :

Code: [Select]
[    1.542238] usb 1-1: new high-speed USB device number 2 using dwc_otg
[    1.542394] Indeed it is in host mode hprt0 = 00001101
[    1.822734] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=1a40, idProduct=0101
[    1.822752] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=1, SerialNumber=0
[    1.822759] usb 1-1: Product: USB 2.0 Hub
[    1.823557] hub 1-1:1.0: USB hub found
[    1.823684] hub 1-1:1.0: 4 ports detected
[    2.142225] usb 1-1.2: new full-speed USB device number 3 using dwc_otg
[    2.274804] usb 1-1.2: New USB device found, idVendor=0fe6, idProduct=9700
[    2.274824] usb 1-1.2: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
[    2.274832] usb 1-1.2: Product: USB 2.0 10/100M Ethernet Adaptor

to get the drivers loaded I verified net-usb-4.14.26-pcpCore.tcz is available on the system.
however the assumed r8152.ko does not load,
and in the dir
/usr/local/lib/modules/4.14.26-pcpCore/kernel/net/
I cant find a 'usb' subdir that could hold the .ko files.

What am I missing here? Or did I stumble on a missing part in the repository ?
pointers are appreciated.
Regards M-H

Hi M-H,

You need to bring your question over to the Logitech Squeezebox forum.

https://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?108852-Announce-piCorePlayer-3-5-0

This forum is only for "pure" Tiny Core/piCore questions.

Apologies Tiny Core Team.

regards
Greg

You are right Greg.
PCP is based on piCore, but the differences could confuse the picore forum.
I just got tangled up here investigating similar issue reports that helped me understand the problem.
Please close the thread.
