v2013.04 - PetaLinux - When Debugging my System with QEMU, the Ethernet Device Fails


When debugging with QEMU, the Ethernet device appears to function incorrectly.  How do I resolve this?


To work around this issue, simply use the "ifconfig" tool to put the Ethernet device down and then bring it back up.

An example of this systax is below:

To put the interface down:

/sbin/ifconfig interface down

To bring the interface back up:

/sbin/ifconfig interface up
