News   News : AresOne onboard ethernet is working
   posted by phoenixkonsole on 22-Nov-2009 13:37:22 (2530 reads)
Franck Charlet released a ethernet-driver for a bunch of Realtek-controllers including the one in the upcoming AresPC AresOne (www.aresone.de)

you can find a list of supported chips in the aros-exec.org thread.

Read more...


Because Frank Charlet don't want the money offered trough the bounty http://www.power2people.org/bounty_046.html , the money will be transferred to a new one about providing a driver for the Onboardsoundhip, which is a Realtek ALC888. This will make Aros more attractive also for using on actual mainboards.

Why doesn't the AresOne website state what the AresOne machine is specifically (I mean, what motherboard is it?). You also can't just make a driver for the ALC888, you need to make a driver for the PCI controller that controls the HD-audio chip (in this case, the ALC888).

If you can do a networkdriver which works you can do a sounddriver as well.
Just look down on my site , their you can find older entries maybe they are interesting for you.

the specs: http://home.arcor.de/phoenixkonsole/ares/files/a2d79b515460167aa13716bf7c4b441d-9.html

Regards,

Pascal

You fail to understand that a network chip includes a PCI handling part and a HD-audio or AC'97 chip does not. For example, you can not just make an AC'97 driver and expect it to work on all motherboards or PCI cards that have an AC'97. One must write a driver for the controller chip, for example the VIA686B on an AmigaOne or the emu10kx for SB Live's, even though they use the same AC97 chip. Behind that controller is a codec in the form of AC'97, HD-audio, AKM or whatever chip. At most one could make a C file or library that different drivers can utilize, but there is no such thing as an ALC888 driver for generic use. Unless all southbridges share the same register set these days, which I doubt they do, but I'd be glad to be proven otherwise.

For the MSI board on your link, this means one would need to make a driver for the NVIDIA nForce 520 chipset and I'm not sure if there is documentation available to do that for NVidia chips.

Yeah, but all is not so bad, there is an NVidia HDaudio driver under ALSA. I hope there is documentation too. Anyway, somehow they managed to get it to work under Alsa, perhaps I can have a look if they handle different NVidia chipsets differently or if there is at least a common ground from one vendor.
