weekend, and my MIRABOX is working a lot better!  No network, but I
can actually get to multiuser now:
Please try ping or bootp or dhcp on by u-boot prompt.
The mvgbec must required initialize to MAC address.  It set by u-boot.

mvgbec0 at mvsoc0 unit 0 offset 0x70000-0x73fff: Marvell Gigabit
Ethernet Controller
mvgbe at mvgbec0 port 0 not configured
mvgbec1 at mvsoc0 unit 1 offset 0x74000-0x77fff: Marvell Gigabit
Ethernet Controller
mvgbe at mvgbec1 port 0 not configured

That does work better! I get network now, though there is probably still some work to do:

mirabox# ping

64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=1009.199514 ms

(that's pinging a host on the same LAN)

Much better!  Thanks for the quick response!



MiraBox looks interesting platform after I learned Marvell published
documentation for Armada 370 SoC on their product page. Awesome!

It could run dedicated NetBSD firewall or NAS (or both) and anything else
one might think of.

Does MiraBox get hot when running full speed? (I'm looking for long term
investment and I believe devices running cool lasts longer...)
For firewall box I need SD card and networking to run properly. From above,
I can see there were some issues regarding to network latency, has this

If I decide to buy MiraBox I'd like to offer helping hand on any issues, like
testing, new drivers etc.
