Re: TP-link TG-3468 ethernet board (RTL 8161) not working with AmigaOS4.1

@trgswe

The best solution would be to find another one of the older version of TG-3468. But it is a hit and miss as most dealers do not know what they are selling.

>and remeber you have two ethernet ports on the X5000 both I think works on linux.

No they don't... Please reread my answer to Skateman above!

I'm afraid not... If I do it as you adviced, I get an additional error requester:

Erorr in configuration file for unit 0.
.... (212)

I did it as adviced in the .doc file located here:

Sys:Documentation/rtl8169_dev/

>Why not use the onboard X5000 adapter ??

Because it does not work with Linux! You seem to forget that you are the ONLY X5000 user for which that is working normally... All others have to use the unplug/replug trick with Linux, which is unacceptable.

Besides, I do not have free ethernet ports in my router to use two lines for X5000. I have to have one adapter which works with all OSs (AmigaOS, MOS and Linux). The earlier version of TG-3468 was such.

TP-link TG-3468 ethernet board (RTL 8161) not working with AmigaOS4.1

I bought a TP-link TG-3468 ethernet board for my X5000. I have used the same product before, and it has worked ok with AmigaOS, MOS and Linux.

This new board does not seem work with AmigaOS anymore. Ranger reports it has a rtl8161 chip ( the earlier one had a rtl8168). In MOS it works automatically with the rtl8168 driver, which would suggest the rtl 8161 is compatible with rtl8168.

But why does it not work with AmigaOS...? Is there some trick to get the AmigaOS driver to accept the card? I did already try to create a settings file 'unit0' into ENVARCHIVE/rtl8169.device" drawer with this type of text, without success:

VENDORID=0x10EC
DEVICEID=0x8168

Does anyone here use GMX mail? Does it work with YAM, without needing to use two step identification? I'm looking for a mail service to replace gmail, as I do not want to give my private phone number to Google to get it working again.

Does this kind of ordinary null-modem cable work with the serial port of X5000:

It would be used for debugging, with this kind of adapter at the receiving end:

>According to the cputemp docky, the cpu temperature is stable at 49 degC at a cpu load of 100%.

You get surpricingly low temperature with full CPU load... Sounds unbelievable. With the 60mm Noctua, I get 55 degC when the computer is totally idle! The ambient room temperature is 24 degC.

What kind of case are you using, and what type of fans does it have? I use a F.D. Core 2500, with a 120 mm fan at bottom blowing in at full speed (12V) and a 140mm one at top-back blowing out (12V with a RC-10 low-noise adapter).

> Edit: It actually came with a reducer afterall. It's a so called LNA cable (Low noise adapter) .

Noctua has actually three different models of low-noise adapters:
RC-15 (27 ohm resistor)
RC-10 (50 ohm resistor)
RC-12 (150 ohm resistor)

Ok, thanks for testing... I tried also to disable 'JIT' from compatibility prefs, and export eps from PGS but no change.

@lazi

Do you have VPDF installed (from OS4depot)? In it's 'test' directory there is a sample file named 'hello.pdf'. If I print it with AmiGS (using default settings) to an eps file, it has the size of 6484 bytes. Can you import also that into PGS in your system without a crash?

What machine are you using? I have a X5000. Maybe this issue is depending on hardware...?

Thanks for the tip, but unfortunately eps files created with AmiGS also cause a crash in PageStream. BTW, it seems that AmiPDF prints via AmiGS, and it is AmiPDF which I have used for creating eps files from PDF ones.

> Noctua fans are a good choice, silent and long lasting.

I agree.

>If airflow is a concern then you could use a 80mm to 60mm fan adapter,
>a funnel which allows you to mount a larger fan with lower RPM to the
>X5000's stock heatsink like a Gelid Silent 8.

I have used a silent 80 mm Noctua model with that type of funnel adapter, but the noise from air flow was at full speed too high to my taste. If I lowered the speed slightly with a low-noise adapter (=resistor), the effect on the CPU temperature was quite nominal (1-2 degrees), when compared to a 60 mm fan.

The best solution would be to replace the original heat sink (which is just too low/small) with a higher and more efective model, Does anyone know a heat sink which would fit properly on the Cyrus board...?

Could someone here please confirm that the import EPS issue is generally present with OS 4.1, and not just a local problem due to my settings...? EPS files can be easily created e.g. with AmiPDF, by printing a document as EPS to a file. Thank you!-)

Now I do not understand your point...? I have not mentioned the boot cd anywhrere in my text and have NOT used the basic driver on it! I use only the latest Radeon HD driver from the Enhancer Plus package, and everything I have written in this thread points only to it.

Besides, the resolution limit of that 'basic driver' on CD is only 1024x768, much lower than the 1080p (1920 x ....) someone mentioned here to be the limit with HD 6450 and HDMI. So, the 'basic driver' has nothing to do with the issues discussed here.

@Raziel

Unfortunately I am now (during several weeks) in different place than the HD 6450 and the Eizo I spoke about... But I already had a look on those frequences via Linux installed on the same X5000 but unfortunately I did not write them down... But I remember there was nothing peculiar in them, they were near 60 Hz.

PageStream crashes when importing EPS files under AmigaOS4.1
Just popping in
Just popping in


I have noticed that PageStream 4.1.5.6 crashes always (8000 0003) when trying to import EPS (Encapsulated Postscript) files under AmigaOS 4.1. This problem has been present as far as I have used OS 4.1. The OS version has not had any effect.

Is there any fix for this?

When running PageStrem in classic Amiga or with E-uae there is no similar problem. PGS files which already include EPS graphics also work with OS 4.1. Thus, the problem is only seen when trying to import EPS.

Well, after all, this is not a big problem as I usually do not need low screen resolutions... Just some games cannot now be run directly under OS4.1, e.g. 'Hibernated'. But it still runs ok with E-UAE 1.0.0 if run from cli (it opens then a 800x600 screen), instead of trying to boot it directly from the .adf file.

>I take it you tried the "Detect Settings automatically"?

Yes, I used originally that setting, before I started to test the manually defined modes.

>Well, christmas is coming...time to get a new monitor(?)

After reading your signature, I would newer dare to waste the resources of our planet for such... !

But seriously speaking, I already have at home a relatively new Nec, with the same max resolution as this old Eizo at my work room. It has no frequency limitations for the digital mode. I hope I get an opportunity test it with this 6450...

Do mean how to install Ubuntu on X5000....? It's a long story .
Please have a look here:

https://forum.hyperion-entertainment.c ... 395f4ac383ac5bdd1d82f1fe1

There you can find detailed instructions how to install any of the currently available PPC Linux distros on X5000. Ubuntu is not anymore the best option.

>Ok, since your list of screenmodes is as tidy as it could be, let's change that.

I tested the 640x480 with those different frequence definitions but unfortunately without succes... The 800x600 was already working with 59Hz (but not with the initial 60Hz).

>The only other thing that comes to mind, is to plug a foreign system (linux, windows) into that monitor and see

No need to do any pluging as all modes are, as already mentioned, working with Ubuntu in the same machine . I checked the frequences from my monitor's info window for 640x480 and they were 31.4 kHz and 59.9 Hz. I do not know whether the Screenmode prefs accepts decimal values but I will try...

Edit: The decimals are not accepted... If 59.9 is defined in tooltypes, it is changed to 59.
