I have a weird problem of not being able to bring up the eth0 i-face under Kali 2.
The error logs arise:
[   17.602735] gmac0: probed
[   17.609326] gmac0 gmac0: eth0: eth0: PHY ID 00000000 at 0 IRQ poll (gmac0-0:00)
[   17.631288] gmac0 gmac0: eth0: Initialize hardware error

Is it a hardware problem or Kali 2 assembly/compilation one?

Further to this problem, I have mounted a Fedora 22 image on OPI plus, but result is the same: eth0 is not detected and the respective network card module is not loaded.
What network chipset is used on OPI and what is the way to load its module and activate the etho ?

I made further forum messages reading and apparently the answer has already been posted here:

You have to use the right (and latest) script.bin & uImage for the board.
Tested with wireless USB keyboard/mouse, USB HD/Flash drive, USB to serial adapter ...
Ethernet works too.

After burning the image to the SDCard, download scriptbin_kernel.tar.gz from Mega or GoogleDrive.
It contains the latest kernel and script.bin
Unpack and copy uImage_OPI-2 to sdcard fat partition, rename to uImage.
Copy script.bin.OPI-PLUS_xxxxpyy to sdcard fat partition, rename to script.bin.
You may also copy the lib directory to the linux partition (if you are on Windows, do it after booting to OPI).

The solution worked for me and I was able to bring up the eth0 interface.
