Hi youxiaojie,

Welcome back :) yes, it is possible but we don't have the DTS for this box yet.

See my release thread Linux Kernel 5.1.2 MVEBU package and Debian armhf rootfs for the rootfs Debian-4.12.4-mvebu-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2.

This box is 88F6820 which is Armada 38x series. At the moment, I'm supporting these 3: Zyxel NAS326 (Armada 380), Thecus N2350 (Armada 385), and Synology RS816 (Armada 385.)

If you can post the serial boot log, and information about GPL source here. I'll take a look and tell you how easy/hard it will be. When I have some free time I can help you writing the DTS and bring up this box. Not sure I can spend a lot time yet, but after mid August I should be more available.

youxiaojie,

Mainline has DTS for this box already.

/usr/src/linux-5.1.7-tld/arch/arm/boot/dts/armada-385-linksys-cobra.dts


So I'd say it will be easy to get it to run with rootfs Debian-4.12.4-mvebu-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2.
