TIP

Please document here if you succeed gathering the information for your board.

On Stock Firmware

Tested on a LS-WVL with firmware 1.52

You need shell access to the machine.

   $ dmesg | grep -i board
   Marvell Development Board (LSP Version KW_LSP_5.1.3_patch13)-- MVLSWV  Soc: 88F6282 A0 LE

For uBoot, your config will be `buffalo_mvlswvl_6282_config`.

On a Debianized System

Tested on Debian 6 ("Squeeze") with a kernel 2.6.31 from stock firmware 1.52

 # cat /proc/buffalo/board_info 
 BoardId=82
 BoardName=MVLSWV

As you can see, the BoardId is only the last two digits. So for uBoot, search the makefile for your board-name, e.g

grep -i MVLSWV Makefile

This will hopefully give you a single entry which ends with the board-id like `buffalo_mvlswvl_6282_config`.
