Ethernet not working on LS1012A FRWY board

Hi,

I installed the pre-build Linux images on a new LS1012A FRWY board, and the network interfaces are not showing on Linux. They do show and work inside u-boot.

I tried stopping pfe before booting linux ("pfe stop") and copied the PFE firmware to /lib/firmware/, but that did not help.

This is the error message I get for PFE firmware loading during boot:

Having the exact same problem but proposed solution didn't work out for me.

Downloaded flex-installer for LSDK2012.

wget https://www.nxp.com/lgfiles/sdk/lsdk2012/flex-installer && chmod +x flex-installer && sudo mv flex-installer /usr/bin

Deploy command used:

flex-installer -i auto -m ls1012afrwy -d /dev/sda

Under U-boot I'm able to see both ports and are active (ping command passed).

After login into NXP LSDK2012 I don't see eth ports:

Which exactly "pre-build Linux images" are in question?

How exactly (log) they were installed?

I used the following command to install the pre-compiled images:

flex-installer -i auto -m ls1012afrwy -d /dev/sdc
/dev/sdc: 31 GB

I also tried building the images locally using the following command:

flex-builder -m ls1012afrwy

Then wrote them to the sd card using:

flex-installer -b build/images/bootpartition_LS_arm64_lts_5.4.tgz -r build/images/rootfs_lsdk2012_ubuntu_main_arm64.tgz -f build/images/firmware_ls1012afrwy_uboot_qspiboot.img -m ls1012afrwy -d /dev/sdg -F
