Patch up to pre6 and use the AMD Viper driver. Mine detects the UDMA(100) fine with this driver.

hda: host protected area => 1
hda: 117231408 sectors (60022 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=7297/255/63, UDMA(100)
hdb: host protected area => 1
hdb: 90069840 sectors (46116 MB) w/1916KiB Cache, CHS=89355/16/63, UDMA(100)

Don't bother with pre7...unless you want to apply a patch after the pre7 patch. The ac97_codec doesn't compile.

Talking It works with Debian!

Hi, I got nearly everything working under Debian. I am able to use Sound with ALSA or OSS. I got it both working, and it was quite simple.

My question is if anyone got the gameport working. There are certain games I want to play, like Flightgear or TORCS.

I have some problems with the X-Server running in higher collor resolutions or accelerated 3D. I get some weird errors, but I'm quite shure they don't have anything to do with mistakes in Daniels GREAT howto.

@Daniel: I got a more recent alsa-version, and this bug with the wrong connectors seems to be fixed. I plug my speaker in the green middle connector.

Thorben

PS: Is surround sound also possible or not?

SImple,

boot with ide0=ata66
wich tells the kernel that you have the correct ide cables (80-wires)

What's the problem with UDMA? hdparm -i gives me:
hdparm -i /dev/hda

/dev/hda:

I've had no problems from the start up of this box. And, I haven't felt the need to upgrade my kernel. Kernel version is:
2.4.20-gentoo-r1

The problem is that some motherboards don't set the cable detect bits properly which means that the chipset limits transfer speeds to UDMA/33, the highest speed permitted with 40 wire IDE cables. 80 wire IDE cables are recommendet for UDMA/33 and mandatory for all higher speeds. A bios upgrade may fix this.

Thumbs up

hey daniel,
would really like to thank for the guide!
und as an appendix to the ALSA-section you should insert a line that says:
READ THE INSTALL / README
had some headaches about getting alsa working... didnt run the ./snddevice script in the driver/utils dir.

also:
running alsadriver/utils/alsaconf updates your modules.conf by itself.

im using alsa-093 on RedHat9 and alsa works with no probs for now.

btw, freshrpms.net got some nice rpms for rh8/9

yes this guide works for rehat9.

the only things that changed are the kernelpatches.
use kernel 2.4.20 with the latest stable patch 2.4.21.rc6
you dont need the agp-patch.diff used in this guide. i think these patches are needless with actual kernel/kernel patches.

also: the updates for rpmbuild and grub are needless. these versions come with your redhat distro.

for the nvidia graphics driver i used the nvidia_xyzXXXX.run script from nvidias site.
this script just did it fine for me.

for alsa i just can say: RTFM!

Default Re: Guide to A7N8X Under Linux

My A7N8X is 'mostly' working under Linux 2.4.21-xfs. Every thing works, except burning CDs :-)
(I have a low expection on the sound front, so the standard driver is fine. :-)


I found that I could burn CD's if I didn't start X and logged in on a text console.

Eventually I configured a serial console so that I could use kdb (comes with the SGI XFS enabled kernel source) and found the system crashing in the IDE driver after the SCSI emulation layer reports a command time out.

The trick is, the system only fails when the nvidia display driver is loaded. Works when it isn't.

So why does the Nvidia display driver cause IDE to break ?

The system does not crash (but gets rotten IDE transfer speeds), with the standard Redhat 9 kernel and nvdriver.

Any one have any ideas ?

Default agpgart code fails to compile

Hi, nice Redhat guide. Are you trying to expand it to be a full guld for the A7N8X under Linux? With an A7N8X-X I'm seeing a problem when trying to compile a stock 2.4.21 kernel with the patch on Gentoo (the patch installed without error), with gcc version 3.2.3. Kernel compilation fails with:

gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.4.21/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=athlon -nostdinc -iwithprefix include -DKBUILD_BASENAME=agpgart_be -DEXPORT_SYMTAB -c agpgart_be.c

make[1]: *** [_subdir_char] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.21/drivers'
make: *** [_dir_drivers] Error 2

Has nVidia just failed to code compatibly with gcc 3? Has anyone run into this and found a workaround (no, building the kernel with an old gcc is not something I'd do)? Is there any motion to put AGP support into the standard kernel tree, so that problems like this won't show up?

Thanks,
Whit

I have created a SuSE linux howto page for the Asus A7N8X Deluxe Rev 2.0. The page is at http://www.simiannetworks.org/howto/opus_ii/ . This page might help some people.
