Re: OHCI-related crashes on X1000

Thanks. Are the release notes public? It still looks to me like the driver doesn't have an interrupt handler, which would suggest either unorthodox programming or that it has to work around some interrupt-related problem. The fact that eth3com.device doesn't work on the X1000 could be more than a co...

OHCI-related crashes on X1000

Hi, While testing my atheros5000.device wireless driver on my X1000, the system is locking up with OHCI-related error messages output on the serial port. The conditions for this are long-running FTP downloads. Running the 'factor' program at the same time to raise CPU usage to 100% seems to speed up...

Re: eth3com.device crashes on X1000

Yes, I believe it was written for the internal NIC on the SE/XE. I don't know if it's officially supported, but it works fine for add-on cards on some machines (including the SAM440ep as I mentioned). It has to be a 3C905C card however; earlier revisions don't work.

Re: eth3com.device crashes on X1000

Thanks for the information Tony. It's a pretty clean system, as I only installed FE a few weeks ago. Anyway, it's not a big problem for me as I have other cards; I'm mainly just curious if it's a known issue. Perhaps it could have gone unreported as the 3Com cards are pretty old now and people likel...

eth3com.device crashes on X1000

Hi,

eth3com.device 53.3 crashes when I try to use it with a 3Com 3C905C PCI card under OS4.1FE. The device gives a 0x80000002 guru upon opening. The same card works fine in my SAM440ep. Is there another version of the driver that works?

DMA cache issues on SAM440ep

Hi, I have encountered problems with my network drivers on the SAM440ep because of differing behaviour of Exec's DMA functions. For example, when I call StartDMA()/EndDMA() without the DMA_ReadFromRAM flag, addresses outside the specified memory region are clobbered if they are unlucky enough to sha...

Problem booting Lubuntu 14.04

Hi, I'm trying to boot Lubuntu 14.04 from DVD, but I always get "kernel panic: not syncing: No working init found". I'm booting kernel 3.17 from the LOADER partition on my OS4 disk. I set root to /dev/sr0. Any ideas? BTW, I get the impression from reading other threads in this forum that the default...

Re: atheros WLAN driver

Multiple SAM users have the same symptoms when using this driver, so I don't think it's a case of a bad card. The driver works with the A1SE, Peg-II and X1000. It looks like interrupts are not being received by the driver. Could an OS developer investigate if there is a possible interrupt configurat...
