How to configure Clearfog Pro DSA?

Question

Hello to you!

 

I was using Arch Linux ARM on my Clearfog Pro for years. Then things got bad. I think it's a bad combination to have a distro with the most up-to-date software while developers are rapidly abandoning and not testing 32-bit Linux software. First wget became incompatible with gnutls and then programs in coreutils that use utmp started malfunctioning. The last straw was the system became unbootable, issuing a message about ext4 "ext4fs_devread read outside partition 18446744073709551440".

 

I switched to Armbian but now I'm at a loss as to how to configure DSA on the Clearfog Pro.

 

I installed the mv88e6xxx but the LAN ports on the DSA switch did not come to life.

 

sudo modprobe mv88e6xxx

Back when it was working on Arch Linux ARM I would see this

Does anyone know what I should do to bring up the DSA?

Yeah you need to UP eth1.  You can even see this in your Arch listing, the lan ports are @eth1. Vs in your armbian listing eth1 is down so the dsa is unreachable.

 

Example ip config via /etc/network/interfaces:

 

# Loopback
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# eth0 wan
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet manual

# eth1 switch dsa port
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet manual

# eth2 sfp port
allow-hotplug eth2
iface eth2 inet manual

# lan ports (dsa)
auto lan1 lan2 lan3 lan4 lan5 lan6
iface lan1 inet manual
iface lan2 inet manual
iface lan3 inet manual
iface lan4 inet manual
iface lan5 inet manual
iface lan6 inet manual

# bridge for local ports
auto br0
iface br0 inet static
        bridge_ports eth2 lan1 lan2 lan3 lan4 lan5 lan6
                address 192.168.1.1
                netmask 255.255.255.0
                network 192.168.1.0
                broadcast 192.168.1.255
                gateway 192.168.1.2
                dns-nameservers 1.1.1.1 1.0.0.1

 

 

Clean armbian images are using network manager and should have working switched lan ports ootb.

Thanks but the answer turned out to be that I was using

 

u-boot-clearfog-base-mmc.kwb

 

But the DSA switch requires

u-boot-clearfog-pro-mmc.kwb

U-Boot 2013.01-g1e88e63-dirty (Jul 20 2016 - 21:38:48) Marvell version: 2015_T1.0p11

 

I have to admit that eth1 is up now but I didn't do anything to bring it up.
