network dev eth0 - gmac_open error -19

1 2616
have try bananian 1408 and 1409 - but no network config is available. ip a s shows a eth0 device ifconfig not (only lo). Config static ip via /etc/network/interfaces does also not work.

is that perhaps a hardware failure?

Unless you played around in UEnv.txt (the sunxi_gmac is AFAIK based on the generic stmmac device/driver and this driver can be supplied with different physical addresses at kernel boot time via stmmmaceth="phyaddr:X") this seems to be a hardware problem between the A20 SoC and the RealTek 8211 PHY or the latter is simply broken (have a look at the replacement procedure ).
