@kas1e

Nice video, thanks !

PS: the new U-Boot version supports all Sam460 models

yes, it supports only ext2fs, fat support was removed to save space on the 512 Kb boot eeprom, maybe we can add it back again with a new u-boot version.

if you need to interrupt the boot countdown and go into u-boot shell, you may press 'q' instead of ESC

Re: Amiga X5000 and Sound Blaster Audigy FX problem
Just popping in

@all

This is the explanation of what happened:

- we sold very few Audigy FX cards (less than 10), and then took them off as availability from our shop because there was no demand
- the sound cards were not sold with any driver included, at the time it was still possible to download the driver from OS4Depot
- the audio driver was included on the SD card we supply with the Sam460 boards to help users install the operating system and other utilities easily and as quickly as possible, a kind of 'bonus pack.' As soon as we were alerted to the problem with the audio driver, we removed it
- Our mistake was to include the driver without having read the readme

We are sorry to learn that things were misunderstood. We make our apologies to geennaam and the Amiga community.
We will make sure that things will not happen again in the future.
In any case, we invite you to contact us directly through our contacts available at www.acube-systems.com

In our tests, the SIL 3112 is unreliable when used with a Sam460 board, the exact cause is unkwown.

There is a Pericom 8150B PCI Bridge on Sam440ep mini-itx and flex boards, maybe it's testing it ?

@Gebrochen

Try the Sam440ep_setup utility from OS4Depot:

http://os4depot.net/share/utility/shell/sam440ep_setup.lha

if it help with your dragging open drawer windows slowness, which is in part due the HD 5450 used which has a PCI-PCIe bridge onboard.

@balaton

the sm502 driver set chip endianess to big endian writing 0 into register 0x005c.
This seems not to work in PCI mode (the chip remain in little endian mode), but maybe on the Pegasos emulation there is some side effect ?

The Sii3112 card is likely to show instability on Sam460 boards, replace it with a 3512 or 3114.

the driver assumed to always run on a 460, and used CPU time base 64-bit register for time delay

- bigger screen resolutions support
- corrected the problem with the boot delay on Peg2 emulation
- better read/write and blitting performance on real hardware
- some bug fixings

if you're using the SM502 driver, you can try the upcoming 53.12 available on the beta-ml later today

While the ATOMBIOS ASICInit function should theoretically initialize the card from zero, we found that cards typically wouldn't work properly unless the motherboard's firmware did the lowlevel initialization first

I've ported ATOMBIOS into Sam460 U-boot version, and ASICInit indeed seems to initialize correctly the card but ATM I cannot get any videomode working. Do I need to call the classic x86 BIOS emulation before calling ASICInit, or something else need to be done to have a basic 640x480 screen mode ?

There is a good chance that it will be available on OS4Depot and/or on ACube web site, after finishing some other improvements.

I wasn't aware of that. So the SM502's blitter won't copy or use the alpha channel? That's a weird thing to do.

The chip uses a different 16-bit layer for alpha. Maybe these is a way to implemet some sort of alpha support compatible with graphic.library...

Anyway, I've a new driver version which, on real hardware (not emulated) greatly improve CPU and DMA trasfer speed.
