Re: radeonHD video hw acceleration

@Hans

I've done a little test executable which loads a 352x288 YUV422 image from a file and then display it using a PIP window (on a Radeon 9000)

Is it useful for your purpose ?

This is the link to download it, just in case... PIP_YUV422

I've done a little utility to modify the IRQ line, details in PM.

Thanks to graffias79 for the experiments and thanks to Hans for the detailed analysis.
What puzzles me is why the Envy24DT has the right IRQ assigned and not on the others PCIE cards, I'll investigate the problem.
In the meantime a little external executable which assign the IRQ to the PCIE card may help to check if there is any other problem to correct, hope to find time in the next days to develop this little patch...

To everyone interested: I've implemented I/O access over PCI-E in the AmigaOS4.1 Sam460ex kernel some days ago, it will be available in a "next" OS update.

It will be possible to use the PCI-E 1x slot directly with supported cards (audio and SATA for example), or via a PCI-E to PCI adapter.

Fixed in Ringhio 53.23

BTW: I've increased popup msgs text size from 128 to 160 chars.

I am sure: a bug was filled in the OS4 tracker.

There is a feature that is not supported by the 440 core : it has no performance monitor. But it is not used in Hieronymus to profile but only to give the number of cache misses, as a bonus.

I've fixed the bug for Sam440ep / Sam460ex boards. It was in the INTB_VERTB emulation done in rtg.library.

Hieronymus now works nicely on Sam too

Yes, U-Boot output on the serial port even without a gfx card installed, be sure to set the PC terminal program to 115200 8N1 (if the default baudrate settings has not been changed)

Re: AmigaOne 500 audio is slow

I posted this on Hyperion Forum:

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 problem, if the PCI card requires I/O accesses to work too.

Using Ranger it's possible to check if the PCI-E (or PCI) board requires I/O accesses, just select the PCI Bus tab, choose a board from the list on the left, and in the Resource Ranges check for the Flags files, if it reports only IO, than the board won't work with the current AmigaOS4.1 kernel.

In the Ranger screnshoot above, that audio board use only I/O, therefore it won't work atm.

@broadblues

Yes, Ringhio wraps at 30 chars, on nonalpha chars, including the "\n".

I'll try to find some time to fix this annoyance.

Currently there is no way to format the text displayed in the pop-up message.
Do you have any sample of what you what to achieve ?

Indeed your board repair history is very long:

1 - the assembly facility were moving to a new place

2 - we tried to reflow the gfx chip, but this didn't worked

3 - then we didn't find M9 replacement chips from a reliable source quickly

4 - when finally the M9 chips arrived, there was the earthquake where the assembly facility is located

We hope to have the board repaired "soon", now that all the pieces are at their places...

It's a requirement of the 440ep SoC, it has a 32 bits wide DDR bus, while "standard" DDR modules have a 64 bits bus.

No, the Write Pixel Array result is for copying a buffer from RAM to VRAM using the DMA unit (on 440/460 CPU)

FYI I'm currently working on support for the VT6421 PATA/SATA chipset.
There is already a new U-Boot version in development for Sam440ep mini-itx, Sam440ep flex (and soon Sam460ex) which can boot from the PATA port, and a very rudimentary AOS4.1 driver (works in PIO mode atm)
Don't ask for any release date since development work is done in my (very) rare spare-time...

@nbache

as AOS4 betatester, do you have access to the sam3114ide.device ?
The sam3114ide.device (not to be confused with the sii3114ide.device) uses MMIO instead of IO and there are better chances it could work on a Sam460ex.
