@henrix - firstly thank you for all your efforts getting the CTAG boards into our hands!
I am able to flash a microSD with bela_image_v0.3.6b.img and (using my MacBook Pro with OS 10.12.6) access the BBB via USB to SSH 192.168.7.2 as expected. I have used this BBB many times without issue.
However, when I flash the same microSD with ctag_bone_debian_v0.1.2.img, my Mac does not behave in the same way resulting in my not being able to SSH the BBB (via USB) at all. When I look in my System Preferences -> Network, the BeagleBoneBlack interface shows as only having a "Self-Assigned IP".
I have tried two different MacBook Pros with the same result. I have also tried installing/re-installing HoRNDIS and FTDIUSBSerial drivers, but this has not changed my experience.
When the BBB is plugged into an ethernet cable connected to my home router, I have been able to SSH via the router's DHCP assigned IP. However, when I tried to run
sudo ./load-ctag-beast-16ch-drivers.sh the BBB became unresponsive. I have tried multiple times with the same failed result.
I'm at a loss as to what's wrong. Any ideas?
