ifconfig wwan0 : SIOCSIFFLAGS: No space left on device


#1

Hi all,

I’m working on Sierra MC7700 on Linux 2.6.38 on my embedded board, I’m facing an issue when I connect the MC7700 through a
7 port Dlink USB Hub.
I connect the MC7700 to the Dlink USB Hub and i issue the AT commands through the busybox microcom, after I get OK for the connection, if I try to
run dhclinet on wwan0 or if I do a ifconfig wwan0 up i see the below error message:

SIOCSIFFLAGS: No space left on device

Has anyone faced this issue before?
Thanks in advance for your time!.

regards,
GK

Hi,

Are you running any sample application before running dhclinet on wwan0 or doing a ifconfig wwan0 up ?

Thanks.

Hi Rex,

Thanks for the reply.

Are you running any sample application before running dhclinet on wwan0 or doing a ifconfig wwan0 up ?
No, I’m not running any sample application,
Now I can reproduce the issue every time like this:
I insert the MC7700 to my board, the ttyUSB s get created
I run @ the shell :

busybox microcom /dev/ttyUSB3

sierra ttyUSB3: sierra_submit_rx_urbs: submit intr urb failed: -28

I get the above debug message from the sierra module :
which is actually the ENOSPC for the device on endpoint 3.

Any thoughts on this, would really appreciate any clues in finding this out.

Thanks,
GK

Didn’t Oliver Neukum give you the correct answer to this a month ago?

Anyway, that error comes from the HCD driver and has nothing directly to do with the Sierra device. It’s a platform thing and you do not provide any information about the platform you are using.
