SAM440ep and update3 or 4

Postby dh1 » Fri Jan 06, 2012 10:44 am

I have a motherboard SAM440ep 667 MHz (512 RAM) + Radeon9200SE graphics card.


So far, I did not have AOS4.1. I bought one from the ACube!
AOS4.1 Update 1 CD.
I installed. It worked perfectly.
Hyperion's web site I downloaded all updates.
I installed the Update2. It worked perfectly!
I installed the Update3 ... the system is booted, but after opening a few windows Crashed. Freeze, no error message.
A startup has been before the crash Update4 the update to install.
It also crashes immediately after boot.

Perfectly clean install! Nothing is installed ...
No setup internet ... simple OS install (no ethernet problem).

It is interesting. Back to update2 copied from the Kickstart directory on the system boots, but does not work well ...

I got the error!
KICKSTART / rtg.library
Update3 new rtg.library to crash the system.
Update2 old rtg.library working fine!

I do not know what's wrong! Idea?
My Radeon 9200 SE not compatible with the Update3 and 4? Only compatible with Update1 and 2?

Another detail. If you take out the Radeon 9200 card, the M9, it works, no crash.
But unfortunately for me the onboard M9 bad. Bad colors show on DVI.

Thanks!

When you change from PCI to M9 are you changing 'Video Options' in UBoot menu?

UBoot should be version 1.3.1d (Feb 15 2011).

Have you got System:Devs/Monitors/PCIGraphics installed ?.
There was aslo an older thread with someone with a broken onboard M9 who could not get his system to work with a PCI card with update 3. I dont think that he was able to solve the problem.
Yo may need to email Acube for help with the onboard video and the PCI card as no one here seems to have a similar dual card setup.

Try setting, from a shell:

setenv save Picasso96/UseDMA 0

and report back if this solve the problem.

Another test, if you're using sam440ep_setup is to run the utility from a shell with the SNDGFX argument:

sam440ep_setup SNDGFX VERBOSE

This solution worked!
The new rtg.library work.
Thank you!

But does not work "Warp3D" and "MiniGL" either.
A demo is running, open a blank window and the system will freeze.

ATI RADEON 9200 SE 128 Mb ...

What is wrong?

Nobody has any idea?
"UDMA 0" method before the system is not crashed.
Just open a blank window.
The demo at the end of the operation, exit to the WB screen.
Now the crash is over.

I'm desperate!

Hi!

I have SAM440EP motherboards! Not the Flex version!
One PCI slot!

It turned out that this motherboard is a prototype.
Perhaps for this reason that does not work properly with the R9200SE.

I would like to ask the person who is SAM440EP motherboard and graphics card to use the system board.
Please send the following e-mail me the DEVS:MONITORS/ folder content.

Please send your ENV:PICASSO96/ folder content and ENV:SYS/screenmode.prefs file.

Would be most helpful in detecting the error!

E-mail:

amigamania at amigaspirit dot com

Thanks!

"Surprising: If I start the integrated graphics card is connected to the monitor, then there is no UseDMA 1 freezing.
The R9200 connected to the monitor (no power off), there will be a Workbench screen, resolution of 640x480 in 8 colors.
The other resolution is not available.
But there is no freezing!"
