How disable NIC LEDs?

Dear @librecomputer

Is there any method to disable the LEDs on the Ethernet port?

The board is ROC-RK3328-CC!

Thanks! :pray:

You have to patch the kernel with out of tree code and then add the appropriate device tree entries using an wiring tool overlay. [PATCH v3 0/7] net: phy: realtek: Enable configuration of RTL8211E LEDs and SSC — Netdev

Thank you! This is a total project per se!

But it looks promising, meanwhile these linking leds are driving me crazy! :face_with_spiral_eyes:

I’m reminded of what Tom and Ray Magliozzi used to suggest on Car Talk when a caller wanted to know how to fix the oil pressure light on the dashboard that kept coming on. Put black tape over it.


When all else fails…
