In regards to the Quanta T3048-LY2 (NOT LY2R) i am curious if anyone here knows of a good solution? I saw on page 35 in the presentation below that the LY2 has the same chip as Arista 7050-s-64, Alcatel Lucent 6900, juniper qfx3500 , Dell force 10 S4810 and others. http://netseminar.stanford.edu/seminars/05_26_15.pdf

I can volunteer my own LY2 for testing and jtagging etc. if we could try to get a proper image on these boxes. Mine has an expired Cumulus image right now.

your quanta's CPU that actually runs the OS is a PowerPC Freescale P2020, so you'll need an image built for that specifically to have any chance of working - only contender I know is the dell S4810 (P2020, Trident+ ASIC). I know they both use u-boot, so there's a chance you could experiment having your quanta boot the dell OS image without the risky bit of trying to replace the bootloader (this is how you brick things). There's other stuff that needs to match like the CPLD architecture/layout etc so who knows. Here is some S4810 info including environment variables that it uses to boot: CPU0: P2020E, Version: 2.0, (0x80ea0020)Core: E500, Version: 5.0, (0x8021105 - Pastebin.com
