Software News   Software News : UBoot 2010.06.04 for Sam460ex available
   posted by m3x on 21-Mar-2011 22:55:46 (454733 reads)
Bassano del Grappa, Italy - 21, March 2011

ACube Systems is pleased to announce a new release of the U-Boot firmware for its line of motherboards Sam460ex.

Read more...


What's new in this version:

* changed AHB bus setup, this fixes the use of the onboard SATA2 port with the sam460sata.device on AmigaOS4.1.
* improved DDR2 setup
* improved Radeon HD4650 setup
* fixed a bug in the PCI-E 1x/SATA2 menu

With this version the onboard SATA2 connector becomes fully functional and can be used with the sam460sata.device distributed with AmigaOS 4.1 for Sam460ex. Please note that the driver shipped with AmigaOS4.1 for Sam460ex still operates in PIO mode. A future update of the driver will enable full DMA modes.

The updated installation guide describes in detail the usual installation method (ISO image) and alternative methods (TFTP), but for this release only the TFTP method is available.

You can download installation archives from:

* http://www.acube-systems.biz/index.php?page=hardware&pid=5

Additional information:

Please note: UBoot and UBoot updater makes use of GPL code and thus are both published under GPL.

The sources can be downloaded from:

* http://www.acube-systems.biz/index.php?page=hardware&pid=5

or, using a direct link, from:

* http://www.acube-systems.biz/download/u-boot-2010.06.04_20110321_prod.tar.gz

Does this mean that there is currently no sound on the 460?

As usual Acube delivers

@-Sam-
The on board audiochip will receive a driver soon, in the meanwhile you can have audio with a sound card as shown here:

As i understand onboard audio not have driver for now, and for having any sound you should use some PCI sound card (which for me also not good idea, because of limited PCI slots on the board, which i want to use for other needs).

But im almost sure it will be released pretty soon.

That's not too bad then. I take it you can have a Radeon HD 4650, soundcard and SATA card in the machine at the same time then?

The onboard SATA can only have 1 device - is that correct?

If I wanted the following configuration:

Radeon HD4650
Sound card
SATA card (I need DVD and hard disk/SSD)
Catweasel MKIV

Is that possible? I want to run the Catweasel as it would be great to add a floppy and convert over all of my old software as the Catweasel driver for OS4 looks very cool.

@-Sam-
Not everyone has loafty expansion needs and a Sound Card can be used as a stop gap measure renouncing to a few extras (at least at this initial stage).

In any case, having simultaneously HD+DVD+CATWeasel+GFXcard+Sound will soon be possible.

At the moment I don't know if the PCI-E 1x slot can be turned into "standard" PCI slot using a riser/convertor.
I saw them on-line and they say they are plug and play, no question asked.
If they work you should be able to place the standard PCI sata card (for HD+DVD) on the PCI-1x slot (as I said, using a riser), the Catweasel on the standard PCI slot, and the Radeon HD 4650 in the PCI-E 4X slot.
Sound should come from the motherboard however (as soon as the audio driver is released).
It's a lot of stuff for a mobo with so few slots if you think about it.

Drivers for PCI-E 1x devices (for direct use without a riser) should also come eventually so in case the riser doesn't work as advertised, the PCI-E1x slot will come in handy just the same.

@ Antique

Only TFTP update, you must have another machine running in the same network. I've just update my Sam460ex with my Mac, OSX have TFTP integrated you can just use a gui like that if you have a mac:

Or on OS4depot: http://www.os4depot.net/index.php?function=showfile&file=network/server/ftp/tftpserver.lha

I found bug in new u-boot - if press key UP on system information menu - sam460ex reset....
No success with memory speed - still only 460 Mhz, some persons have more....
