New Intel motherboards

Postby Robert Kindred » Thu Feb 23, 2006 2:51 pm

Intel is phasing out Socket 478-type motherboards. Even if you don't want a
dual-core processor, you will in the future need to buy a 775-pin socket
motherboard. There are single-core Pentium 4's that will plug into it.
These boards have new chipsets. In particular, the lan seems to be part of
the chipset. At least for the D945GNT, there is no QNX lan driver.

I am thinking that if we all pick the same one to migrate to, then we will
more likely see new drivers available for QNX for that board.

Penny for your thoughts,

Hi Robert:

I just looked at the specs for the board and it has the 82573 GigE
controller on board. Interestingly enough, this SHOULD work with our
i82544 driver (we're going to be releasing a new version RSN :->). That
being said, I believe that we've had a couple of bug reports filed
specifically with that chipset that will have to be fixed.

The good news is that this chip is a priority for us and we already have
driver infrastructure in place for it so it will be fully supported in
the very near future.

Robert.

Is it planned to migrate from InterruptAttachEvent() to
InterruptAttach(), also?

Just to solve all the shared-IRQ issues listed in this flame:

Hi Davide:

Unfortunately, not in this version of the driver. There's a bit more
thought required than "just making the change". As a side note, it is
possible to change the priority of the driver interrupt thread (via the
"priority=" option to the driver) that can at least help to reduce the
unmasking latencies.

Hi guys,

if you are planning work on the i82544 driver I thought I might
remind you about adding to its wishlist: flushing of tx packets.

I made a note about this in the qdn.private.standard newsgroup on 13 Oct 2005.

Best regards,
Peter Engstrom

I am using this board as well. I was also unable to find a LAN driver that
worked. Furthermore, I could only get the flat driver to work with the
graphics chipset.

I also could only get SATA drives to work in the BIOS "legacy" mode, which
I suspect cuts back on the throughput.

There is a PCI Express x 16 slot, but I could not find a graphics card that
QNX supports that can use this slot. This would be useful, since I would
prefer not to use up a PCI slot for this purpose. Of course, using the
on-board graphics would be best.

Finally, the CPU, once installed, bears a strong resemblance to a garbage
disposal, which is just plain frightening.

Hi Peter:
Tx flush is supported in the version of the driver which is going to be
released in the very near future (it's going through GA testing now).

Hi Kevin:

The i82544 driver may work if you specify did, vid and mac on the
command line (I haven't tried the released version of the driver
specifically). That being said, we have a version of the driver which
DOES work being released in the very near future (it's currently being
GA tested).

I'm not sure how we go about announcing availability of driver updates,
but they'll become available through your MyQNX account. I'll try and
post a message here when the patch is put out as well.

The recently released patch ID 214 (available from the download section
of MyQNX under Momentics 6.3.x : ... Service Pack 2 and related
downloads : ... Patches and Updates) contains a variety of updated
drivers including a new devn-i82544.

Hey, sounds great! For some reason, though I don't see it. All I see are:

USB Patch [Patch ID 189]

qconfig Patch for QNX Momentics 6.3.0 SP1 or SP2 [Patch ID 205]

Debug Malloc Library Patch for QNX Momentics 6.3.0 SP2 [Patch ID 155]

QNX® Momentics® 6.3.0 Graphics Driver Patch [Patch ID 171]

Maintenance Patch [Patch ID 97] for Momentics 6.3.0 SP1 Full TCP/IP Stack

Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place.

Hmmmm... It's possible that I've got some sort of magic access (although
I thought that I'd turned that off). I see those patches towards the
end of the list as well, but before it there are quite a few other ones.
The URL says "programid=11903" when I get to the appropriate download
area...
