Really like the look of that board for all sorts of low energy server based applications. Please ditch the onboard switches and just plain old jumpers that can also be wired switches like a server mobo. If its at the right price that is definitely looking like a great server board with many applications.

Are BOTH Ethernet ports working and tested ?

I guess only hardware is available for internal testing yet. There are some patches on mailinglist for rk3588,afair ethernet too (they should not differ much from rk356x). So i see no big problem here…compared to mtk boards gmacs are 1g only (not bad here because only 1 port per gmac).

Only 1 lan is working as the other one is using pcie2. So we will have to wait for pcie bringup for rk3588

as far as i found out there are 2 variants of rk3588…one rk3588S with only pcie2 and one rk3588 (without letter) having pcie3x4 which seems the case here…so we need support in pcie3 driver for rk3588…imho it was partially available (but had not tested it due missing hardware) and maybe needs only compatible (which afair i have removed when sending driver upstream).

Negs ot pcie3 working on rk3588 already i didn’t get time to test it myself but he is already working on it.

Thanks to you pcie3 patch.

So far I have only tested 2 rk3588 boards with 1 rk3588s and both can boot with upstream kernel and have sdcard, emmc, lan and uart support only.
