HELP set up galileo

I just got an unopened intel Galileo (Gen 1) and do not have a serial cable. I wan't to install the "big" linux image. so i downloaded it from https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/galileo/downloads Downloads for the Intel® Galileo Board | Intel® Software and installed it and everything. with no OS on my micro sd card i was able to upload a sketch using Arduino that would enable telnet. i was able to access the terminal, But eith this bigger image i am not able to connect to the terminal using telnet

also the galileo tutorial (https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-galileo-windows-step1 IoT - Step 1: Make a bootable micro SD card | Intel® Software ) said there would be boot, firmware, win-driver, and bzimage on the sd card. but all i see is boot and bzimage. i do not know if this is causing the problem.

I also read on https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/galileo-getting-started-guide Galileo Getting Started Guide - learn.sparkfun.com that you need a smaller image that is simply dragged to the sd card but no matter where i go i can not fing this image.

PLEASE HELP. all i want to do is use my PCI Wifi card

The "big" Linux image is the so called eglibc based image, and it does not have/starts telnetd at startup, I suggest you use ssh instead telnet, which is easy with PuTTY, for example. BTW, are you sure you have IP connectivity with your Intel Galileo using the large image? Post the Arduino sketech you are using for enabling telnet.

also the galileo tutorial (https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-galileo-windows-step1 IoT - Step 1: Make a bootable micro SD card | Intel® Software ) said there would be boot, firmware, win-driver, and bzimage on the sd card. but all i see is boot and bzimage. i do not know if this is causing the problem.

The latest image does not have all the Intel documentation/tutorial says it has... Intel documentation is misleading, as reported recently in another thread:

That's another Linux yocto supported (or used to be supported) by Intel, the so called uclibc based image. I think you can find it at

Here is the sketch i am using

void setup() {

system("telnetd -l /bin/sh");

system("ifconfig eth0 169.254.1.1 netmask 255.255.0.0 up");

}

void loop(){

}

one more question how do i setup telnet via uploading an arduino script

The problem is that the Ethernet interface is not called eth0 by default, but enp0s20f6. Thus, you do not have connectivity to your Intel Galileo, and you should add

system("ifconfig enp0s20f6 down ");

system("ip link set enp0s20f6 name eth0");

system("ifconfig eth0 up");

as explained at

and

HTH,

Fernando.

It's started automatically, once you have IP connectivity you should be able to login as root via ssh.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I finally was able to access ssh and my Galileo was able to obtain an ip address
