The commands you pasted look fine. And honestly I don't really see how the bitstream would even influence the ethernet. The ethernet is connected to the MIO pins and those are configured by the FSBL and independent of the FPGA PL fabric. You could have no bitstream loaded at all that the ethernet should work. When you say "Ethernet stops working". Are you sure the cpu still runs and it didn't crash ? Can you use the serial console and still interact with the on-board linux ? Or is it possible the whole PS system crashed ? Currently my thought would be that the whole CPU crashes because the new bitstream you're loading doesn't have the peripheral expected to be present for the given device tree. When you boot with the system that was shipped originally on the SD card (which is different from the files on the ftp!), it boots to a linux desktop and has hdmi and audio support and some other stuff that are all implemented in the PL. If you then load a bitstream that doesn't have those in the PL, the loaded drivers could try to issue bus requests that will go unanswered and just crash / kernel panic ... Cheers, Sylvain
