Just installed on two Pogo E02 and two GoFlexNet's.
Many thanks for keeping these devices alive :-)


P.S.: The Pogo's are my digital VDR's with SAT>IP, the GoFlexNet acts as a small network server for storing recorded TV, scans from my network scanner etc.

Thank you very much! :-) I still update my LG N1T1 NAS with new Kirkwood versions, and it works great! I have it off location and every night it opens a VPN connection to my home and make a backup of new documents, photos and other important files.Thanks for your work! <3

Thanks for the great work you have done. I just successfully turn my long bricked pogoplug v4 back to life.

But I do notice one thing. Unlike the old kernel, on these new kernel the BogoMIPS seems always be 333.33. Is that normal? The frequency info from sysfs looks alright though.

Cool!

BogoMIPS has been unreliable for a long time. I don't think BogoMIPS is maintained anymore. I remmember a few years ago I had a patch to correct that (for SMP) but decided not to add it into the kernel.

yuko1225,

That reminded me, do you have cpufrequtils package install? that would be much more accurate to see the CPU clock.

Thanks for the reply.
cpufrequtils 008: cpufreq-info (C) Dominik Brodowski 2004-2009
Report errors and bugs to cpufreq@vger.kernel.org, please.
analyzing CPU 0:
  driver: kirkwood-cpufreq
  CPUs which run at the same hardware frequency: 0
  CPUs which need to have their frequency coordinated by software: 0
  maximum transition latency: 5.0 us.
  hardware limits: 200 MHz - 800 MHz
  available frequency steps: 800 MHz, 200 MHz
  available cpufreq governors: powersave, ondemand, conservative, userspace, performance
  current policy: frequency should be within 200 MHz and 800 MHz.
                  The governor "performance" may decide which speed to use
                  within this range.
  current CPU frequency is 800 MHz (asserted by call to hardware).
It's looks fine. And I find a thread about it.
https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/3/2/640

[    0.000000] clocksource: orion_clocksource: mask: 0xffffffff max_cycles: 0xffffffff, max_idle_ns: 11467562657 ns

[    0.001274] Calibrating delay loop (skipped), value calculated using timer frequency.. 333.33 BogoMIPS (lpj=1666666)

It's seems as long as the clock source is fine there is nothing need to worry about.

Thanks.

Hello bodhi,

Could you please look at this issue?
https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,18152,51209#msg-51209

It still produce exact same error on building the kernel module, even with the latest rootfs and latest kernel&header files. I'm not sure if that's the module's issue or headers issue.

The module that pre-build by TheFeaR is for 5.1 which is not the latest kernel now...

Thanks!
