Re: CTPCI and USB card

Hi, Hey, so you are having fun while I was back in my hometown couple of days for Chinese New Year. Hmm, somehow i think you had more fun than i had :D I would not have ordered anything from China (or Asia) around 1 month before CNY...

Re: CTPCI and USB card

Hi mikro, sure, i know, but it´s only a difference in shielding, not in connections. The standard length of the IDE UDMA cables is 45cm (incl. a slave connector) and they can´t be shortened (in an easy way). So i thought that 2x15 cm unshielded is better than 2x45cm UDMA + open slave connectors whic...

Re: CTPCI and USB card

Hi, WHAT A MESS!! I ordered two NEC USB cards with the correct chip via EBay and after a huge "delivery desaster" they finally arrived. First the parcel was sent to France caused by a faulty EBay ordering form, second attempt ended that the parcel carrier didn´t find my door+letterbox (aar...

Re: CT60CONF.CPX user clock divider

Hi,

thank you for the hint, wongck! Somehow i missed/forgot this chapter.
Perhaps i try this in my second Falcon to find my upload problem, but i have to solder the additional clock wire first.
Do you have soldered this wire from CTCM to CTPCI?

Re: Temperatures

Hi, 060 has an internal thermal sensor in the DIE and connected on 2 pins of the 060... On the CT60 an analog/digital convecter gives values from this sensor . This is IC11 on the CT60 board, a TLV831CD. See http://powerphenix.com/ct60/CT63_schematics.pdf . Perhaps you can examine the contacts of th...

Re: CTPCI and USB card

Hi,

thank you mikro and David for this great support!!

I removed my USB card. It´s a VIA Technologies with chip "VT6212L". So this card can be listed as
"not working".

@wongck, can you please tell me which card you use?

Re: CTPCI and USB card

Hi, this is when loading the rtl8139.xif driver. Are you shure that you use the correct .xif? Perhaps your C: is corrupted (run "dosfsck -a" or "-r" like suggested)? I use this build for testing Davids new kernels, if that helps: https://github.com/freemint/freemint.github.io/tre...

Again, only tested regarding network functions:
SUCCESS
mint060_pcibios2 works correct here (exept my upload problem), like trunk2101 with disabled pciwrapper.
Tested NFS, Litchi and some web apps.

Great work, David!! :cheers:

Re: CTPCI and Realtek 8139D

Ah, i see, thank you.
But this seems to be a slightly different problem as he had no freezes with ftp transfer.

Perhaps offtopic: In CT60CONF.CPX/Memory µP/, what´s this "user clock divider" setting for (set to /2 here)?
What is your setting?
