[Solved] Ethernet issues on Odroid C1 after updating

Post by odroidc1user »

I'm having multiple issues with getting my Odroid C1 working with dietpi: The initial setup goes fine, and it runs the auto-updater to bring it from v6.0 to v6.16. However, after it reboots the ethernet adapter no longer works and cannot gain an IP address even when trying to configure the adpater in dietpi-config.

I noticed another thread that was sort of similar, but was using a C2 and wifi viewtopic.php?f=11&t=4726&sid=579e8e0ae ... 8d6#p14440. I added the line as suggested, and while it didn't fix the networking at boot, I am at least now able to go into dietpi-config manually every time and choose to "save all changes and restart networking", which fixes the problem. Not really ideal though. Any ideas what the issue might be?

Just wanted to mention that I got this working by replacing my 6.16 files with the 6.17 dev commits here:

The `systemctl start networking` inside preboot script was the change that finally fixed it for Jessie systems (G_DISTRO=3), if one does not want to apply all those changes 😉: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/blob/ ... #L269-L274

Not sure why but I actually tried just adding that first, but for whatever reason it didn't fix it for me until I added all the changes?

Strange, during our tests and several user replies it was the other way round.

However, good that it works now for you and this properly helps others as well :).

There is a current issue, that turning on WiFi + Ethernet the same time and on different subnets, e.g. WiFi on 192.168.0.10 while Ethernet is on 192.168.178.10, then WiFi connection breaks, at least without setting up a special routing table: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/2103

This could perhaps also break the other way round: Ethernet does not connect. So please try in case to disable the WiFi adapter via

Code: Select all

dietpi-config
.

Please also try to update to current beta, since we fixed some interface startups on boot there, which might be related: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/2140
