Release Sources

Kernel and wifi sources:

The Non-public toolchain needed is listed under the "Generic SDK 5.0" on the extranet. Due to some incompatibilities with the WLAN driver and Kernel, we were unable to build with a publicly available toolchain. Please contact Marvell for access and to resolve build support issues. Folder location is: My Products > Embedded Processors > ARMADA 370 > Software > Old Versions > Generic SDK 5.0 > Little Endian

WiFi Conifguration Notes

The Wireless Module, AP-8764 has it's source code for the driver released under GPLv2 license (see above). The localation of the configuration tools man pages or detailed docs specific to the AP-8764 are proprietary and only available through the tools vendors. Because the tools are GPLv2, the sources for the tools should be published somewhere.

Here are some basic notes in GIST form to cover WPA2 configuration:

Some manual commands to run in the configuration of a new BSP based on arch:

  • For UFW, open all connections from the associated networks for the administrative network and the default WIFI AP network # This generates the /usr/lib/ufw/user.conf commands used to store the rules ufw allow from ufw allow from
  • setup the timezone for America/Los_Angeles /etc/localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Los_Angeles
  • Configure time: > ntpd -qg (Need to set up NTP at this point or else openssl won't work properly ) > hwclock -w

Arch Linux ARM Tips

  • Until we complete the migration to the mainline Arch Linux ARM community release (and more modern kernel), it is not recommended to attempt to run a complete upgrade
  • If you need to install packages from AUR, you minimally will want to run as root: pacman -Sy


  • 0.6.0 - Complete migration to mainlain Arch Linux ARM distro
