AppleTalk...again....

Recommended Posts

I feel like I have been here before..... I'm trying to get Netatalk working on my OrangePiOne and OrangePiPC. No luck again

 

I have build a custom kernel with only appletalk extra as a module ( appletalk.ko) and used the then created package:

linux-image-dev-sun8i_5.24_armhf.deb

to install this over an image of the beta images site for an orangepizero.

Armbian_5.24.161226_Orangepizero_Ubuntu_xenial_4.9.0.img

The OrangePi boots perfect and I see the new kernel active:

Linux orangepizero 4.9.0macippi-sun8i-g21ddf78-dirty #2 SMP Fri Jan 6 20:08:41 UTC 2017 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux

Installed Netatalk after this and it is running fine...only no appletalk or AFP over DDP... very frustrating!!

 

I can aecho to its own address, but not to other Macintosh

Wit tcpdump I see a lot of tuncated packages / errors:

On my older image with adjusted kernel 4.6.0 and appletalk  everything is working fine. At nbplkup looks like this:

Nothing to see from my Basilisk II emulator too. Should be....

I hoped that with a newer kernel the Ethernet problems of the Orange Pi where solved,

See my armbianmonitor -u output on:

I love to have a working ethernet card WITH Apple talk for my project "The MacIPpi". See all about it on:

Tried it again with 4.10.3 .... no luck again. It seems this ethernet driver is ruining AT packages:

Some more research. It seems that Appletalk protocol is mutilated bij the ethernet driver on a OranePi Zero. Could it be a simple thing like a value which is to snmall so that information is cut of?

 

Have a look at a tcpdump at the same time on two different machines. One on an OrangePi Zero ( 4.10.3) and one on a Tiny Core VM. On the Tiny Core atalk works fine...

I got a very friendly reply on my search for correct AppleTalk working on the sun8i-emac network driver. See this:

Hello

Which driver do you use dwmac-sun8i or sun8i-emac ? (see it in dmesg) Anyway I have tried to fix both in two github branch
https://github.com/montjoie/linux/tree/sun8i-emac-v5.1
https://github.com/montjoie/linux/tree/dwmac-sun8i-v5

Regards
Corentin Labbe

 

 

 

Not sure how to use this fix in the building development, but maybe someone is willing to give some help!

You would adjust https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/sources/sun8i.conf#L16-L17 to point to Corentin's dwmac-sun8i-v5 repo/branch and then you need to disable most if not all patches since the majority will fail. Putting an empty file with same name in userpatches subfolder will do the job (I would start with disabling all patches except of the necessary 'packaging' patch). Performance with such a built kernel will be awful but that shouldn't matter if it's about trying to help him debug/fix the AppleTalk problem.

Ok!

Changed lib/config/sources/sun81.conf   line 16 and 17 to

https://github.com/montjoie/

and

dwmac-sun8i-v5

 

made a directory lib/userpatches with almost only empy files.

 

cd lib/userpatches
(cd ../patch/; find -type d ! -name . -printf "\"%p\"\n") | xargs mkdir

copied all the files of lib/patch into it and emptied everything. Only not the files with 'packaging' in it.

in compile.sh chose for yes at only kernel and yes for configure kernel so I can add AppleTalk module

 

Started it up ..... and yes I see it is getting the right git sources

So lets pick up again from yesterday. Very cold weather in the Netheralnds so nice to stay at home at Kings Day!

 

Building ended nicely:

 

[ o.k. ] Kernel build done [ @host ]
[ o.k. ] Target directory [ /root/output/debs/ ]
[ o.k. ] File name [ linux-image-dev-sun8i_5.27_armhf.deb ]
[ o.k. ] Runtime [ 49 min ]

scp the deps directory to my Orangepi Zero and installed. Dont't forget to remove the empty extra directory in deps

Switch to debs directory on Zero aninstall with 

 

dpkg -i *.deb

 

Reboot and check new kernel

 

root@orangepizero:~# uname -a

Then load appletalk module

 

modprobe appletalk

Check if loaded

 

root@orangepizero:~# lsmod

Then install tcpdump and check for Appletalk packages:

 

tcpdump -i eth0 atalk

And yes....... the packages are OK!

#netatalk 2.2.5 for AFP DDP and macipgw
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian sid main

 

did an

apt-get update

Ten an:

 

apt-get install netatalk  

   

 

It give some key eroors. Don't pay attention to it. If you get questions if you want to proceed just do.

 

Ten edit /etc/init.d/netatalk and change

 ATALK=yes

 

Just to be sure I rebooted and started netatalk by hand

 

/etc/init.d/netatalk start

And YES! Workes fine!!!!

Many thanks to Corentin Labbe for fixing this problem and many thanks for tkaiser for his patience in explaining how to get this fix in my building environment and get it actually working!

Strange, I can not remember that we ever released Netatalk 2.2.4 or above back then ;)

 

Anyway: glad that it works and I hope you informed @montjoiethat his fix did it? If you can provide a diff I could try to throw the patch to our current sun8i dev sources so you would get both working NBP and all the other improvements (like cpufreq scaling AKA 'performance' ;) )

Yes … I informed Corentin Labbe about the result. 


I’m afraid I don’t know how I should let you know what the diff is. I have seen a multicast fix in drivers/net/ethernet/allwinner/sun8i-emac.c in  sun8i-emac: fix multicast 3 days ago. May this is it:


https://github.com/montjoie/linux/commit/43934e114a3a3358a570480c8974e4e52769cd11


This is in sun8i-emac-v5.1. I used dwmac-sun8i-v5. I don’t see the same fix. Hope you can work with this information and apply the fix to the Armbian images?


I gave my 4.6.0 MacIPpi image this new 4.11.0 kernel with the fix, and it is working fine. No more RX errors! Uptime 17 hours and counting

I used dwmac-sun8i-v5.

This is the "new" driver, it won't be used in Armbian anytime soon. We could patch sun8i-emac or wait to see if megous rebases his 4.11 branch to include newer sun8i-emac driver.

Thanks for the explanation. For the MacIPpi I will update the standard Armbian images with this dwmac-sun8i-v5 branch. I really like to have a stable working driver for Ethernet on my OP1 and OPZ.

Glad it is fixed now for everybody!

Nothing is fixed yet. It's important that @montjoieknows about the bug and is/was able to fix it in the other branch that will later be the one all more recent Allwinner variants will use. For now it's up to you to confirm. Just use the build system again, clean up everything in userpatches directory and then do

cd userpatches/kernel/sun8i-dev
wget https://github.com/montjoie/linux/commit/43934e114a3a3358a570480c8974e4e52769cd11.patch

Please let kernel rebuild, test and report back. Then we'll look whether we throw the patch into Armbian's standard sun8i-dev patch folder and/or send it to megous (would require that someone -- maybe you -- also test whether the patch cleanly applies against his 'orange-pi-4.11' branch :) )

I see the same problems like before. Mutilated AppleTalk packages

Hey, that's really good work! I actually have some AppleTalk related plans for some Orange Pi related boards, so this is really good timing. I have some experience with low-level AppleTalk work (and I own the dead-tree version of Inside AppleTalk), so if you need further assistance I'll be glad to help as much as I'm able (my free time is limited these days, though).

 

These days, though, AppleTalk kernel modules are becoming a bit long in the tooth; I had to submit some patches to NetBSD to fix their AppleTalk stack a few years ago, and no one had even noticed it was broken. OpenBSD removed it a number of versions ago, and the Solaris module is broken enough that it crashes my Sparc machines. I'm beginning to wonder if it makes sense to build a new userland AppleTalk library that uses BPF or DLPI (on Solaris) like the HECNet router for DECNet does and fork Netatalk 2.x to work with that. It would make things a lot more portable, at least for file servers and any new applications you might want for AppleTalk (which are, um, rather sparse on the ground).

Ok, I checked debug output and can confirm that you used the kernel I built with montjoie's patch applied. So obviously it's fixed in dwmac-sun8i-v5 but not sun8i-emac-v5. Please try to resolve this problem upstream and keep us updated. If you don't get back within the next 3 days I'll revert this patch since useless: https://github.com/armbian/build/commit/e6440d65f1e29974096ef2cf0807e74521e06ff9

 

(Sorry, I can't test anything here since I've zero AppleTalk equipment any more -- feels somewhat strange given I wrote Netatalk's AppleTalk routing chapter 15 years ago)

This patch is deleted already since we switched to 4.11 (well, we are in the process of fixing broken things) and megous already picked up the newest sun8i-emac changes.

@op1tjaapplease try it again maybe the day after tomorrow and if multicast is still broken please report back to Correntin.

Hehe, I just had a look when I sold all my AppleTalk stuff: 10 years ago since at the same time I also sold all Unix machines I had.

Nice gear you owned in the old days tkaiser! I worked on an Indy in the 90's. Couldn't do much with it and preferred FreeBSD on PC platform. I remember we found out that our Indy even didn't had a compiler on board....You had to buy it for serious money.

 

OK ..... back to Apple and AppleTalk again. I'm  also active on the 68k Macintosh Liberation Army. MacTjaap over there. Nice place if you are still interested in Apple hardware and Appletalk. I'm currently thinking of a way to use a board like a * Pi (Armbian Pi) to act as a LocalTalk bridge, router and macipgw together. See about this in a posting about the MacIppi:

 

https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/27453-macippi-surf-the-internet-on-your-old-macintosh-with-tcpip-over-localtalk/?p=313370

 

and here about an actual prototype:

I'm also active on mac68k.info (more interested in the low-level stuff the cover, and can't keep up with the forum traffic on 68kmla).  I'm actually working on fixing some of the routing stuff in netatalk 2.2.5+ (several important patches in git from 2014 that never made it into a release, wonder if they'll ever do a 2.2.6); the routing is broken and it's screwing up my home network, which also encompasses a VAX and an Alpha running VMS (with Pathworks for Mac).

 

FWIW, while I like the idea of small ARM boards as AppleTalk routers/MacIP gateways, I wish there was a better way to get LocalTalk signals through. The rather high-speed serial decoding must be super ugly to do on the Linux GPIO layer, but a small CPLD/FPGA or a PSoC or similar might do the trick connected over SPI. Relying on something like an Asante bridge seems just about as problematic. :-)

Nice to hear! You doing good work for the netatalk community!

 

About the Localtalk on a CPLD/FPGA or a PSoC? Do you know if there are project somewhere working on something like that?

I don't know of any extant, no. It woudn't be the hardest thing in the world, though doing the DPLL for the serial decoding isn't the most pleasant thing in the world. The PSoC is probably easier to get started on and has easier tools, but the CPLD/FPGA is the "right" way.

 

It's also worth noting that most small micros are way more than powerful enough to do AppleTalk routing at a scale that could handle reasonably large networks. You might find the ESP32 with something tied on to do the LocalTalk decoding to be an ideal platform; it's well more powerful than most AppleTalk routers that existed out in the world short of the high end Cisco multiprotocol routers and such (and even then, it's only smaller RAM, still a faster CPU). But you'd have to write the AppleTalk stack from scratch, most likely. It's something I have way back on my queue whenever I plow through the pile of projects currently on my plate.
