Hi Ben,

I did a search over the internet but was not able to find any driver or package which I can add to the kernel.

I was however able to bitbake the necessary package of bridge-utils for my desktop (Ubuntu 10.04) and it works perfectly fine.

Is there any other way of getting bridge-utils or brctl running on the gumstix?

Do you maybe need a kernel module / driver for bridge utils?

Subject: [Gumstix-users] Installing bridge-utils for bridging ethernet connections


Hi All!


I am interested in bridging my eth0 with eth1 in my tobi duo board. So for example, whatever packets arrive on eth0 should be routed to eth1 and vice versa.


I read up that I need to download bridge-utils which will allow me to make such a bridging possible. After downloading an ipk image, I did an opkg install and it seemed to work fine. However, upon creating a bridge:


brctl addbr br0


It gives me an error: 


add bridge failed: Package not installed.


Have I missed out something? Is there any alternative to be able to bridge 2 ethernet connections?


Thanks for your help.
