Need people testing ipq40xx DSA PR

I can compile it for you.

A precompiled image would be fine, but building on my own would be preferred.
I did a:

git clone http://...openwrt... ; cd openwrt
git pull
wget https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/4721.patch
patch -p1 < 4721.patch

which ended up with some *mr33* related rejects and finally the build failed (error message not available any more)

Thanks,
Thomas

Do

git remote add satura git@github.com:sartura/openwrt.git

and

git fetch satura

and

git checkout satura/ipq40xx-dsa

After that compile openwrt normally.

git fetch satura
failed, probably because I don't have a github account.
Did a:
git clone https://github.com/sartura/openwrt.git & etc ...
Build is running ...
Update probably not before tomorrow (sorry, no ThreadRipper ...)

Cheers,
Thomas

@PolynomialDivision ,
forget about my previous post, complete waste of time ...
After reading "man git-remote" I did:

git clone https://...openwrt
cd openwrt
git remote add satura https://github.com/sartura/openwrt
git fetch satura
git checkout satura/ipq40xx-dsa
make menuconfig
make -j5
I did a sysupgrade and found:

openwrt-21.02.3
WAN	2C:3A:FD:19:05:7F
LAN	2C:3A:FD:19:05:7E

OpenWrt SNAPSHOT r19767+17-fbf6992f2b
WAN	2C:3A:FD:19:05:7E
LAN	2C:3A:FD:19:05:7E

Kernel 5.10.120 , shouldn't it be 5.15.x ?

And the box got a bit hot while doing nothing (compared to my productive FB-4040 on 19.07.9)

I remember having to use a LAN port as WAN to be able to tag WAN traffic on GL-B1300: does this change allow tagging on the WAN interface on GL-B1300?

It should work with every port connected to the switch of the ipq40xx soc?

Hi, devs

I'm trying to "complete" the porting work for whw03-v2 and my attempts so far to get DSA working has been unsuccessful. Can anyone check it out?
"qca8k-ipq4019 c000000.switch: unable to get PSGMII eth PHY"

That reads like a question, so I guess the answer is that no-one checked. Do you have an image for GL-B1300 to share? I can quickly test to see if wan tagging now works. Thx in advance!

After my (brain-)migration from swconfig to DSA I can confirm, that VLAN tagging on the WAN port is working fine, at least for the FB-4040. (tested with a managed switch on the WAN port)
VLAN tagging on the LAN ports is working fine too.
Will do some more speed/performance tests.
Hope this PR will get merged soon.

Cheers,
Thomas

Me too. DSA makes VLAN config easily portable between routers. I have completely scripted config for wrt3200acm and a transition to a spare GL-B1300 will really be to remove lan3/lan4. The rest of the script should just work with no changes.

My asus ac58u still waiting for DSA. :grinning:

Take a look at https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/4721
at the very top of the list you can see that "Asus RT-AC58U" has already been "converted"

If you want to test it, you have to build it on your own (or ask someone to do so for you)

Cheers,

Yes, I understand, just waiting for it getting to the mainline

You can wait for ages or simply build it on your own.
Just in case you have a build system ready ...

git clone ...openwrt...
cd openwrt
git pull
git remote add satura https://github.com/sartura/openwrt
git fetch satura
git checkout satura/ipq40xx-dsa
./scripts/feeds update -a
./scripts/feeds install -a
make menuconfig

Change "Target System"="...ipq40xx"
Subtarget=generic
Target Profile=Asus RT-AC58U
And don't forget to include LuCI if you want to ...
Worked fine that way on my FB4040

Cheers,
Thomas
