In the U-Boot log, the names of the Ethernet interfaces are printed in the format <name>@<interface type>, for example, DPMAC2@xgmii. DPMAC is a DPAA2 object that identifies the physical interface. 

 

For Linux, in TinyDistro as well as in Ubuntu distribution, by default, only one MAC is enabled as a standard Kernel Ethernet Interface. This interface is named eth0 by default (or eth1 if PCI Express network interface card is discovered first).

 

For details regarding creation of a DPAA2 network interface (DPNI) in Linux, refer to LS1088ARDB/LS1088ARDB-PB - How to create a DPAA2 network interface (DPNI) in Linux

 

The table below shows the mapping of Ethernet port names appearing on the chassis front panel with the port names in U-Boot and Linux for LS1088ARDB.
