I got my Kingston Fury RAM. Uboot recognizes two banks of 8Gig but AmigaOS is only recognizing 2G. What limit variable in uboot do I change to set this?

I know I am late to the party here. I know this is a long shot but reading this post, I only have 1 2GB Kingston Module in my X5040. So I purchased from Amazon
Kingston Fury Beast 2x8GB DDR3-1833 Dual Rank (KF318C10BBK2/16) and should get it next week. Is there a chance that with fast bank writing with dual memory it would help with some of these weird Grim Reaper errors?

I have also noticed how bad the numbers get on RageMem

Here is a post I have on Amiga.org. Hans posted some really good info to my issues. To his first point, my Sam did come with the 4.1 Rescue SD on it, however, it would error out on install so I had to use the provided CD. I have inquired to Acube on this.

https://forum.amiga.org/index.php?topic=76255.0

Hans:

"Sorry to hear about your experience. It sounds ilke a lot of this could have been avoided if the motherboard came with a "rescue USB flash drive" containing AmigaOS4 with the Enhancer and other bits pre-installed (e.g., the NovaBridge driver for backward compatibility with the old Warp3D & MiniGL). Ideally it would include an installer to help you set up AmigaOS on the hard drive.

Your experience shows how fragmented things have become. I wrote NovaBridge to provide backward compatibility and finally end the graphics driver confusion. Sadly, the confusion will remain until it comes bundled with all new machines.

A few quick comments:
- Making the OS multi-core is a tough problem. So tough, that certain individuals have been loudly proclaiming that it's impossible to add to AmigaOS. It is being worked on, will eventually be released for all multi-core machines (including the X5000)

- AmigaOS' browsers are seriously lagging behind. AFAIK, our browsers do 100% of rendering on the CPU, so there's zero graphics acceleration. This is why performance can be slow. And yes, there are bugs that cause Odyssey to crash on some sites. Sadly, nobody is maintaining Odyssey, so nobody is trying to fix it. There is a team working on porting the latest WebKit to AmigaOS 4, with the goal of creating an updated browser. I'm not sure what the status of that project is. Progress is slow

- I don't remember SAM460s having trouble with Candi. I usually don't run it. IIRC, it has a low CPU usage version that will pause the animation when the rest of the system needs more CPU power

- HDMI not working is a driver issue. Actually, it's likely caused by bad tables on the graphics card's ROM. The driver has a quirk table to work around these, but it's incomplete. These quirks has been a very frustrating part of driver development

- The SAM460 is noticeably slower than the X5000, even with only one core. You might not notice it too much if you start with the Sam, but you notice it if you've been using an X5000 and switch back to the Sam"

@AmigaOldskooler

I found out if you put https://a1222plus.com it will redirect u to amiga.org. if you drop the https and just do http://a1222plus.com, it goes to the 1222 site. However, the site that they created for information is useless because they NEVER update it. It still says june 29, 2023.

For some reason Trevor likes using Facebook and to my knowledge and experience no Amiga browser legacy or 4.0 can handle it. Odyessy totally chokes on both my SAM and X5040.

Also, how is this site written? Using Odyessy on my SAM the CPU is pegged at 98-100% constantly and on my X5040 it 70-100% constantly.

@trixie

Dealers want to sell full systems. In the US, I can buy the same components for 1/2 to a 1/4 of the price. With my X5040 I have recieved limited support because I did not but the full system and they cannot guarranty my experience not using components sourced and tested by them. I only purchased the motherboard.

I was one the pre-orders for the SAM460LE and only purchased the board as well. The fun should continue as I am an Early Adopter of the A1222 of which I again only purchased the motherboard.

To be fair, I have not tried to contact Acube since I heard they are busy and have limited resources as they are trying to get the SAM460LE out and now the A1222.

Looking at issues I am having with my SAM460LE, I am seeing these issues and questions from others as well. But you have to jump from Hyperion form, Amiga.org and here. It seems that the best site to talk to Gurus of os4 is Amigans and I TOTALLY APPRECIATE any and all help I get here.

From my experience, Amigans it first, followed by Hyperion Forum and then Amiga.org.

Since it is now a congloberation of Acube, Amedia, AEON and Amigakit for the A1222, they should create 3 threads on one of these boards so we have somewhere to get questions answered and to troubleshoot bugs. When OS3.14 came out, Richter had a thread on Amiga.org. It was great and help me and the community so much getting things fixed!

I kinda shelved the SAM460LE but I have started to see if I can get things working right on it again.

Can somebody tell me why my Radeon Sapphire R9 X280 will not allow the SAM to boot past the kickstart screen when using HDMI? With HDMI connected, I see the Kickstart and it load OS4.1FE but it never displays the AMIGAOS4.1 logo. It goes to a black screen and monitor turns off. If I use the VGA output, I see everything and it boots fine.

The RX550 I can't see Kickstart but HDMI on OS and the X280 I can only use VGA. Is that a bug? It seems like I read it is a known issue but is there a fix for it?

@LiveForIt

Thank you for your response. Here is my issue. It might work 1, 2 or 10 times perfectly and then Grim Reaper. It is nothing that I can repeat but it does seem like Celestia is buggy also Sysmon now is getting finicky.

Or if I play an MPEG on Emotion, it will play fine but then sometimes will just slowdown, stop. I can kill Emotion but then if I try to open anything on Workbench, it just locks up and requires a reboot.

@amiganuts

It says I need Gtlayout.library. I cannot find an OS4 version. I can only find a 68k version on Aminet. Will that work? That was diskSalv only.

I checked and defragged. I had no errors. I guess I need to look elsewhere now.

Good to know. I will try it and see. I did not know about NGFS. I purchased a new Crucial BX500 240GB. I currently have a PNY 500GB but it seems that Amedia was only offering a Crucial 240GB. Could it be a compatibility issue with my 500GB SSD?

Can anyone direct me to a page that interprets these codes? OS3.1 has a list of what they mean to give you a general area to start troubleshooting.

Can anyone interpret the following:

What is the difference between a ISI(Instructional Storage Interrupt) and a DSI(Data Storage Interrupt)? Is this pointing to my filesystem corrupt or my SSD failing?

I have a X5040 the 40 = 4 cores. The X5020 the 20 = 2 cores. Amiga OS4.1 only supports 1 core. I don't have a X5020 but I do have a SAM460LE and the X5040 beats the pants off it in response and CPU not taxed by Odyssey.

For instance, my SAM460LE on this website via Odyssey with remain between 98-100 the whole time I am on it. However, if I try to go to FB, rumble or YouTube, the X5040 is pegged 100%.

If you have some benchmark you would like to run, I would be happy to run on mine and post the results here. Sysmon has comparisons between systems. It doesn't have comparison between X5000 boards. Assuming the benchmark in SysMon is a X5020, my X5040 is +10.01 - 10.16% across the elements.

My X5040 2220 MHz Results VS:
SortBench Results: 1K 2k 4K 8K 16k 32k MIPS
X5000 1995. %-10.01. -9.67 - 9.75 -10.18 -10.01 -10.12. -10.19
SAM460EX 1150 %-82.81 -81.84 -83.84 -125.86 -512.67 -628.54 -91.28

Re: SAm469 LE sudeden network drops

read my thread about my experiences with the SAM460LE and websites it is toward the bottom of the first page:

https://www.amigans.net/modules/newbb/ ... &order=ASC&status=&mode=0

"NOTE: I went into SYS:Devs/NetInterfaces/ppc460ex_eth and added
mtu=1500. In Ranger I saw that the MTU for TCP stack and HW were both 1518 and any packet over 1500 needs to be fragmented. So I made RoadShow MTU to 1500. It is loading faster and not causing the CPU to be pegged constantly. My thoughts is there is something nonstandard in the TCP/IP stack that strict websites do not like."


I noticed yesterday I was rebuilding my SAM 460LE from scratch for some troubleshooting and noticed your exact problem but when I put my old HD in I do't have it. I totally forgot about this until I read issues I had with it when I first built it. See if that works.

Here is another weird thing. I noticed that when I have an SD card in the motherboard that it acts more responsive. I have a 64gig SD with 2 equal partitions for backing up.

Is there any OS4.1 Utility out there that will check the integrity of a HD partition? 3.x has the Disksalv, Hynie's utility for partitions under 4GB. I had to recently use it to fix a two blocks with the same number and wouldn't verify on my A4000T. I have had my X5040 crash a few times and now it is acting funny. For instance when watching a mpeg movie via Emotion, it will be playing slowdown and stop for no reason. If I kill Emotion and try to use the desk top, it freezes. It never did that before. I also get Grim Reapers with "DataStore" as reason sometimes recoverable or not or just freezes. I really want to check the integrity of the HD.

My SAM460LE acts weird too sometimes and I get Grim Reapers too and sometimes you run the same program and does not happen.

Also, when building an OS4.1 system what filesystem should be used? SFS/00, SFS/02 or does it matter? I have built my X5040 and SAM460LE in SFS/00.

Now soon to be building my A1222. I just paid for it as an "Early Adopter". If anybody can give me any advice on building the A1222 correctly, I would highly appreciate it as I only purchased the Motherboard.

Deneb/Poseidon 4.5 USB class Linksys 2.0 ethernet help
Just popping in
Just popping in


I have an A4000T/060 with a Deneb USB running Poseidon 4.5. I have been having issues with it crashing my system when backing up to smb NAS.

I have 4 different USB ethernet adapters:

Linksys USB200M AX88172 chipset:
Uses 250mW of 500mW power
Poseidon sees it as a CDC class but class under information sys "None".
This adapter works for a time until it errors 3 times and Poseidon shuts it down. Reasonably fast.
"Eth received failed: packet overflow(7)"
"Eth received failed: packet response timeout(6)"

To get it to work again, I unplug the USB and replug and hit retry and it copies just fine until the next time it errors out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Linksys USB200M V2 AX88772 chipset:
Uses 250mW of 500mW power
Poseidon sees it as a "Vendor" class but class under information sys "Vendor 255".

This adapter is very slow.

No errors from Poseidon.

Using "Sana-II Meter Tool 37.11" network monitoring program, It gets continuous "Bad Packet" errors which means "CRC" errors.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Linksys USB300M AX88772 chipset:
Uses 250mW of 500mW power
Poseidon sees it as a "Vendor" class but class under information sys "Vendor 255".

This adapter is very slow.

No errors from Poseidon.

Using "Sana-II Meter Tool 37.11" network monitoring program, It gets continuous "Bad Packet" errors which means "CRC" errors.
----------------------------------------------------------------
D-Link
Dub-E100 USB 2.0
Uses 450mW of 500mW power
AX88172 chipset: Poseidon sees it as a CDC class but class under information sys "None".
This adapter works most reliably and no Poseidon errors Reasonably fast.
On some large files I get:
"Eth received failed: NAK failure"

Using "Sana-II Meter Tool 37.11" network monitoring program, It gets 0 "Bad Packet" errors which means "CRC" errors.

Occasionally, it will stop working and I can either unplug/plug the adapter in or do a power cycle under Poseidon.
---------------------------------------------------------------
So what I have noticed is that the AX88172 chipset works most reliably. Both AX88172 and AX88772 use the USBASIXETH driver.

Can anybody tell me how to change under the "Class" from "Vendor" to CDC Class? Or is that possible?
