Re: PCIe-Sound and or Networkcards for Sam460 ?

The bad news is that the lower end Envy24DT cards do not seem to be supported properly by the Envy24HT driver. This is the sound card that I tried: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829186003 Currently I'm woorking on the Envy24HT audio driver to support that card (or other card...

Re: PCI-E to PCI Bridge: Sam460EX

You are getting further along here than I am. With My adapter ,a Pex 8112 based one, Ranger will show the bridge. the card attached will not show up. Tried with a PCI Sii3512 and a PCI sii3112 and a PCI FM802 based sound card and a PCI radeon 9250 . Also with the 5v card which is the FM802 the Sam4...

Re: PCI-E to PCI Bridge: Sam460EX

Currently the AmigaOS4,1 kernel for Sam460ex boards doesn't support I/O over PCI Express, it support only Memory Mapped access. That's the reason why gfx cards like the Radeon HD works, and sata/audio controller don't, since the laters require I/O accesses. Using a PCI-PCI-E bridge doesn't solve the...

Re: Graphics Card -Sam 440ep-Flex PCI slot

Just tested the following configuration on a Sam440ep-flex: Radeon 9000 PCI into slot 1 (66 Mhz, the one near the CPU) Radeon HD 2400 PCI into slot 3 RadeonHD.chip 0.32 In order to have both gfx cards working you need to: - download the dual graphic cards setup from here: http://www.acube-systems.bi...

Re: Graphics rendering bug

This seems to be a problem with low video memory available.
How much free gfx ram do you have?

Re: Reduced video bus transfer speed on Sam440ep after updat

That's normal, now rtg.library use DMA instead of CPU (where possible) to transfer data from main ram to video ram.
Ragemem measures only CPU speed transfer, not DMA speed transfer.

I suggest you to do tests with gfxbench2d from OS$Depot.

Re: SAM440ep and update3 or 4

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

Re: Why is Mode xxx is not supported at the given frequency

If i'm not mistaken PCIGraphics is part of Hans' beta RadeonHD driver, so i'm not sure if "sending it to you" isn't prohibited PCIGraphics is a standard AOS4.1 Monitor file, no harm to "send it"... Anyway it can be downloaded from there too: http://www.acube-systems.biz/download/DualGraphicCardSetu...

Re: Why is Mode xxx is not supported at the given frequency

I'd say it's a change in the behaviour just to make our lives harder. Be good if we did have change logs instead of wondering why with each update something is broken and we are not told why. And how we fix it. RTG library was changed to use Coordinated Video Timings (CVT) instead of the old Genera...
