Default Re: is nForce MCP61 supported in Linux?

For the intel8x0 problem, be sure to have the latest ALSA version, and then just have ALSA load the intel8x0 driver, if you truely have that soundchip.

I have an Acer AST180-ED380M desktop with the exact same lspci. I think it is an MSI motherboard. The BIOS flashes 09/14/2006 MCP61M-AM-6A62KE11C-00 on the bottom of the screen during POST.

I got sata and sound but not ide dma or network. I think you may need the snd-hda-intel and snd_hda_codec modules for sound. Here's what I tried (quoting myself replying on another forum)

Mine's working now. I tried installing alsa-tools and alsa-oss but I also downloaded alsa-drivers so I don't know what worked. lsmod now shows:

snd_hda_intel 21528 1
snd_hda_codec 172544 1 snd_hda_intel
snd_pcm_oss 47232 0
snd_mixer_oss 19584 1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm 84996 3 snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec,snd_pcm_oss
snd_timer 24964 1 snd_pcm

at least the first 2 of which were not there before.
The mixer shows the device as HDA NVidia and gamix as HDA NVidia: Realtek ALC888.

I just built this so if I do it again, I'll be careful to see what does it.
Since we have the same lspci, I can send you my lsmod and you can see what you are missing. Hope it helps. Either way, can you tell me how you got network and especially ide dma working?!

Thanks!

Edit: It sounds like you used forcedeth to get networking going? What about dma?
Edit: The forcedeth modification did not work for me.
Edit: upgrading kernel to 2.6.18.2 let me enable dma, but it is piss slow 3MB/s.
Edit: kernel 2.6.19-rc6 enabled my network card, sound still works, and dma works well. This page explains how to enable SATA support - it is disabled by default. I didn't enable SATA the first time and my system couldn't find /dev/sda1 to boot off of.

Default Re: is nForce MCP61 supported in Linux?

I've got an MCP61P chipset on my asus M2N-MX. Here's the story so far:
  • Networking only works with 2.6.18+
  • Video card (onboard 6100) only works with 2.6.18+
  • Unsure about the IDE atm, I've had some lockups with my cdrom drive. I've even experienced this lockup on windows that's why it's puzzling me.
  • Audio chip, only works in 2.6.19-rc5 but emits a high pitch noise and any attempt to change the volume will kill the sound output even my second sound card will refuse to play after that. And yes I have alsa 1.0.11 and have tried 1.0.13 no difference at all.

Latest bios and running Ubuntu 6.10.

So currently audio is troubling, so I moved back to 2.6.18 hope to see that get fixed in the future. Currently I've got a old pci network card and an old pci audio card in my machine just because of these issues.

I'm a little late to this thread, but does this mean that the current NVIDIA X driver does, now, support the MCP61? I don't see it on the support list, but it could go by a different name for all I know.

Default Re: is nForce MCP61 supported in Linux?

The IGP (Integrated Graphics Processor) for this board is equivalent to a nvidia 6100 card. The nvidia driver supports this card. The kernel supports it (from my experience may be wrong) from kernel 2.6.18 upwards. I.e.: my standard 2.6.17 kernel didn't know the card so the drivers did not recognise it either.

These are the corresponding patch logs from the various kernel versions:

[ALSA] Audio: Add nvidia HD Audio controllers of MCP67 support to hda_intel.c

So I would go with a very new kernel, to check which kernel you are currently running, do: uname -r in the terminal. It must be 2.6.18 or higher for the graphics card to work. Remember newer is better, the onboard sound card wont work without 2.6.19 and then it hardly works at all. I recommend having a spare network card and sound card lying around.

In fact I recommend the 2.6.20 kernel once it's released, of course you may think that is too much trouble and get a better supported board.

So in short: it's almost 100% supported, at least it will detect most of your stuff with 2.6.19 and the appropriate drivers. Hope that helps. If anyone has a question do post it as I'm happy to help out.

I have Suse 10.2 amd64 [2.6.18.34 default]. I am having trouble connecting to the internet with it, on my Asrock MB which uses the Nforce 6100 405 chipset. It appears to recognise the onboard LAN device, but syslog shows it cycling through "eth0 link up; eth0 link down" and I cant connect to my network.

I have also installed a Dynamode NC-100TX-DL card which works without problem in Mepis (32 bit) after installation of the supplied driver. I attempted to install this in Suse 10.2 but the installer failed citing the fact that it was not intended for kernels prior to 2.6 (!?) - perhaps a problem with 32bit vs 64bit - I haven't been able to find a 64bit driver so far. I note this just in case my attempt to install could have any bearing.
[I have also attempted to install a wireless USB dongle - but again run into problems with ndiswrapper complaining that they are not 64 bit drivers (bad magic).]

I have run the Suse Network configuration application, but this does not list any network cards, and the MCP61 does not appear in the dropdown list of possible modules to load - in any case that doesn't seem to be the problem?

I am stuck at this point and would welcome help - even if only on where to start looking for a solution. Ideally I would like to use the onboard nvidia ethernet (and sound card etc) but any connection to the intenet would be helpful.

Is upgrading to 2.6.19 likely to solve my problem? I would need to find out how to do that off-line but imagine that there are resources I can find for that.

Thanks
Kevin

Unhappy Re: is nForce MCP61 supported in Linux?

Give not some news ??
I´ve buy an asrock k8nf6g-vsta with graphic-, sound- and lanchip on board (nForce NF-6100-405-chip). My os is mandriva 2007. I have a hdd on sata and cd-rom and cd-burner on ide. After installing my os the cdrom and the burner on ide are without function. The lan and sound not either with function.
Now i need help. I hope a few of gays knows the answer.

Default Re: is nForce MCP61 sound supported in Linux?

hi.
i can not get the sound of the MCP61 working. i think its the AD1988 chip supporting everything i need.
my system:
openSuse 10.2 (kernel-default-2.6.18.2-34)
AMD AThlon X2 64 4200+
Asus M2N nForce 430 Chipset (MCP61)
250 GB HDD
GeForce 7600GT 256MG Graphik...

my Problem:
openSuse and Alsa doesn't detect the soundchip of the board.
the second soundcard CMI8738/C3DX PCI Audio Device is detected with no problems. nVidia says intel HDA schould work on this chipset but it is not the case.

hier some outups:

Default Re: is nForce MCP61 supported in Linux?

At this point what I'd do is go to distrowatch.com find a live-cd, download it, burn it onto a cd and boot from the cd. Make sure you pick distribution with a kernel of 2.6.20 or above and see if that's working. If it is, than it's just the kernel.

Here's a list of distributions with 2.6.20: http://distrowatch.com/search.php?pk...6.20#pkgsearch

There's really no easy way of testing. Other than that, I know it's a bit of a problem if you don't have broadband of course.

If you are on a Ubuntu system or a distro derived from Ubuntu, here's the forum guide I use to compile my kernel: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=311158

2.6.21 was released a few days ago btw, I'm running it and ALL my MCP61 on board is working. Really happy now .

Default Re: is nForce MCP61 supported in Linux?

you're right, that's what i exactly did.
i just used current kubuntu 7.04 live-cd and everything worked fine.
i'm not really sure if the kernel or alsa caused the problem but for me it seems to be the kernel. the alsa version on kubuntu 7.04 is the same as in openSuse 10.2 (i think its alsa 1.0.13).
the kernel kubuntu 7.04 uses should be 2.6.20-14 as far as i know.
openSuse 10.2 uses 2.6.18.2-34, that's the problem.

it was a good point, thanks.

Default Re: is nForce MCP61 supported in Linux?

Hi,

I have an AsRock K8NF6G-VSTA mother board (with Sempron 3000+), chipset MCP61 and onboard lan Realtek PHY RTL8201CL (10de:03ef), but it's not recognized with ubuntu (now feisty 7.04, but before I tried with 6.10). I've updated the BIOS (now running 1.5). I've installed the following kernel: 2.6.18 (did not boot), 2.6.19 y 2.6.20 (default with Feisty), without success. I get this error in dmesg:

[ 13.922917] forcedeth.c: Reverse Engineered nForce ethernet driver. Version 0.59.
[ 14.718393] PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:07.0 to 64
[ 14.718403] forcedeth: using HIGHDMA
[ 14.720121] 0000:00:07.0: open: Could not find a valid PHY.
[ 14.720132] ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:00:07.0 disabled
[ 14.720139] forcedeth: probe of 0000:00:07.0 failed with error -12

I've also tried to compile and install latest version of forcedeth (0.60), boot with several parameters like NOAPIC NOLAPIC ACPI=off irqpoll, pci=routeirq, acpi=noirq, ... and I got always same result.

I've read about problems with sound and graphics, but I just want this box to act as a server, so I don't need them, but ethernet is of course necessary...

¿Can anybody help me? Those who managed to get this mobo working, which version of BIOS, kernel and forcedeth do you have?

Thanks,

ßingen.

Default Re: is nForce MCP61 supported in Linux?

My board is an Asus M2N-MX, it's probably a bit different from your motherboard. It looks like it's not supported just yet, you could file a bug I guess at either the kernel devs or the ubuntu devs.
What I'd suggest is to meanwhile get a cheap 10/100 pci card and you'll at least be able to set it up.
