The Lamobo R1 is basically a BananaPi and a Broadcom VLAN Switch at one Board.
If you have an early version and you want to use the SATA port you should add some isolating tape (like in the picture) to protect the switch for short circuits. Later boards should have this already from manufacturer.
Download the latest armv5tel IPFire image, unpack the Image to a (Micro)SD Card:
xzcat ipfire-2.21.2gb-ext4.armv5tel-full-core122.img.xz > /dev/mmcblk? # (or /dev/sd? depends on you card reader)
Mount the root filesystem (3 Partition) and go to usr/share/u-boot/banana_pi folder and run:
dd if=u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/mmcblk? bs=1K seek=8
Mount the boot filesystem (1 Partition) and edit
and set SERIAL-CONSOLE to OFF if you want to use HDMI/KEYBOARD instead of serial console.
The setup will start with 4 vlan interfaces (eth0.11 - eth0.14) which can be assigned to the colours. The eth0 itself must not be used. This Lan Port5 (the extra port) is used in tagged mode with all vlan's assigned.
The port numbers are as follows:
Hint! This layout has changed with IPFire 2.21 (because the switch drives has a new default config.)
|The Lamobo R1 will not work on Telekom-BNG connections (most A/VDSL lines in germany) because it cannot use VLAN's on RED because the Switch is also VLAN based.|
Because the HDMI output is currently not working (the drivers are missing in actual IPFire Kernel), you'll need to connect to the Banana Pi via the serial console. This requires an USB-GPIO-Adaptor. I would recommend to use the above mentioned live system and PuTTY for the serial connection.
