Porting guide ar71xx to ath79?


#330

Does not happen for me but im using the -ct version of the drivers / firmware.
Anyway im out for tonight thanks again, looking forward to see that in openwrt!


#331

Mr @lucize, sorry for the long delay, I could not find a way to tftboot the initramfs file from breed bootloader, so i decided to sysupgrade without keeping the configuration from luci interface, the device doesn't complain anything about firmware checks.

The device boot, power led, lan ports leds, usb led and usb port works but ethernet and wifi are not working. I have an rt2800 usb wireless card and attach it to my device, and i could access to the router via ssh and luci interface. here is the new dmesg.

Do you need some info from the device in the new firmware?


#332

ok, the RTL8367 is not enabled in the config-4.14, I'll update the tree, and will see about ath9k


#333

@Mynzer I've updated the tree, enabled the Realtek phy and added eprom extract function, try it!


#334

I'm working on the Netgear WNDR4300, which is complicated a little by the fact it is a NAND device, and the fact I have little experience with this. I do have a device with serial access so that should help. I should be able to build ramdisk images and boot those to see if it works or not.


#335

NAND is gonna be a little tricky to get working as it needs importing this driver from ar71xx

Although it should not be so hard, as this looks like a rather simple NAND driver and was maintained.
It should be a case of including it and enabling its building in NAND sub-target.

I can give it a go so you can test it out.


#336

Don´t think it would be that easy...
This driver needs a initialization with properties from dt instead of platform data or what is done with the other old drivers a function that sets the platform data with data from device tree...

If you take a look at this PR of @silverchris.
He added a of probe / init function to get the needed data from dt, but this is really an simple nand driver...


#337

Well,only NAND related stuff in the mach file is the following:
ath79_nfc_set_ecc_mode(AR934X_NFC_ECC_HW);
ath79_register_nfc();

RB91X series have their own driver.


#338

I know this would look very simple... But if you take a deeper look into this functions, there will happen the setup of the platform data and then the driver get registered. Sure you can call simply this functions if something is defined in dt, but the files inside the arch/mips/ath79 folder will be dropped on ath79 target and all specififc hw details should be setup within the driver itself with the help o the information in dt. This means no fancy / simple function ath79_register_nfc().
This should happen in the probe or init function of the driver, eg.: drivers/mtd/nand/ar934x_nfc.c

But feel free to try, but don´t be upset if this will never be accepted

I know, and this one is much more simpler than on ar934x


#339

Yeah, you are right.
It's simple when you have the luxury of calling low level functions like in ar71xx.
But in ath79 ar934x NAND driver needs to be updated to read properties from DT bindings, otherwise, it would not really work.

I can give it a go, but I expect to be stuck rather quickly.
Also,I dont have any AR934X devices with NAND, I can only get my hands on 8devices Rambutan but its QCA9557 based and I dont know if the same driver is used.

Hi again @lucize, here is the new dmesg from my device, the ethernet and wifi are not working again, but in dmesg seem that we can see that the ethernet switch gets somehow detected.

#341

can you do a tcpdump on br-lan or the wan interface to see if there is traffic ? I have similar problems with realtek switch when the image is written to flash, for ath9k, try to move the board name in the next case statement
/etc/hotplug.d/firmware/10-ath9k-eeprom
like


	"tplink,tl-wr740n-v2"|\
	"tplink,tl-wr2543-v1"|\
	"ubnt,unifi")
		ath9k_eeprom_extract "art" 4096 2048
		;;

do a restart and see if something is changed


#342

Ok, let me do these changes, I don't know if it can help you, but i could provide you an art dump from my device.


#343

some of the other users could confirm the code loading for art, I don't know how to read it, at the moment..


#344

@lucize I still don't perform the tcpdump tests, but I've already did the change in the 10-ath9k-eeprom file, the dmesg is the same, but now the wifi is working now, both wifi bands. Here is the part that change in the new dmesg

"tplink,tl-wr2543-v1")
	ath9k_eeprom_extract "art" 4096 2048

the only rare thing, is that the wifi interface have a generic mac address (00:22:33:44:55:66), Could this behavior be solved adding in the dts file, in "ath9k: wifi@0" section "mtd-mac-address = <&uboot 0x1fc00>;" ?


#345

dmesg is not the same, now the user helper is working, is normal to see the first error.
yes, you could try like in the wdr4300.dtsi/wr740-v2.dts.
are the wifi leds working ?
for wire
&eth0 try to add
pll-data = <0x1a000000 0x13000a44 0x00441099>;
or maybe we need to add more initvals to the switch
add after gpio-sck
realtek,extif0 = <1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 2>;
try the switch config first


#346

Would that mean one can back up the settings, use sysupgrade -n, and restore settings? From e.g. the 18.06 branch to ath79?

@juppin: the images you're building now, are those built from master or from your own tree? I have quite a few tweaks in files/ so if you're building from what's in master I'll roll my own for the 1043 v2 :slight_smile: .


#347

is not working..

on another topic I'm thinking if should be better to create a generic image for 8m with usb included, in ar71xx there are lots of devices that have usb2


#348

you can use sysupgrade, but wifi is changed so you'll have to recreate or edit the file, till now only wr841n-v9 and mr3020 has the network changed


#349

This are build from master.

If you want to use my ath79 package repo, you could include the two files in my files folder in generic folder.
You have to build your images / kernel with the option "CONFIG_ALL_KMODS=y" and it will only work if you have the same kernel version and hash!
