Does anyone run kernel 4.4.x on Lamobo R1 (http://linux-sunxi.org/Lamobo_R1)? I can not make switch on this board (b53) to work - it can not obtain ip addres from dhcp though kernel recognized this switch (as i saw in dmsg).

Much more info: http://www.bananapi.com/index.php/forum/general/2412-lamobo-bananapi-r1-and-kernel-4-4-x


BTW: driver for switch is currently broken on kernel 4.5 and up.

You mean kernel 4.x and up? I tried this on kernel 4.4

4.4.x is ok, you can use our images to make sure but if you going to compile kernel by yourself, on 4.5 and newer b53 driver doesn't work (yet) ...

In any case you need this patch which contain a driver:

I took yours scripts from your github - I made them to work on my gentoo box and ... kernel in version 4.4.6 is indeed working . Thx.
I don't know what exactly i did wrong with my custom kernel but now i don't care .

BTW. which configuration might be selected for banana pi (i mean by that selection on board screen that appears  after ./compile.sh invocation).

ok - i took bananapipro
