Hi Stuart,

What I have seen is that a newer presents the support for create CAN network devices to implement in a proper way the SocketCAN. I realize that looking in wiki page from a TI'i microprocessor, where they use a newer version of iproute2 (iproute2-ss090324).

CAN supporting is the reason I consider a newer version better.

I'm following the instructions to add a new package (which is under "How can I add a completely new package to the root filesystem" in FAQ LTIB web page). What I'm getting is a compilation error, I'm working in it by now.

Best regards.

Hi Jorge,

Is the newer one really any better?

I don't really have the time to upgrade packages at the moment (adding
is easy, full regression test, no so).

What is the work-around, if it's not too bad I'd suggest using that.

Upgrading a package should be straightforward.  What issue did you run into?

Regards, Stuart

Hi Stuart,

I check into the syntax and I notice that I can make it in a different
way. Nevertheless, looking in the iproute.spec the version used in the
LTIB is kind of old (it's from 2005-2006). Do you guys think that this
can be change to use a newer release? or how can I really add a newer
packet? I followed the instructions in LTIB FAQ but it didn't work.

Thank for all your help.

Best Regards,

Hi Jorge,

Make sure that /sbin/ip is actually from iproute2 and not the busybox

Also check your syntax, I'm not sure if that's correct.  You can check
the LTIB iproute2 man page by looking at the rootfs NFS area:

nroff -man rootfs/usr/share/man/man8/ip.8 | less

Hi everyone in the mailing list. I'm using the iproute because I need to
create a netdevice to use with the Virtual CAN. I enabled the iproute
for compilation, result was ok, but when using it I can't do

   ip link add type *vcan*

I got that command "add" is unknown. Typing ip link help I had:

Usage: ip link set DEVICE { up | down |
                               arp { on | off } |
                               dynamic { on | off } |
                               multicast { on | off } |
                               allmulticast { on | off } |
                               promisc { on | off } |
                               trailers { on | off } |
                               txqueuelen PACKETS |
                               name NEWNAME |
                               address LLADDR | broadcast LLADDR |
                               mtu MTU }
         ip link show [ DEVICE ]

and it seems that the "add" option is not available. How can I have it?
Looking at my host iproute application it brings me a lot of more
options rather than the one in LTIB.

Any help on this?

Best regards!
