@grelbfarlk - regarding your anabolic-like results of your Ragnarok - what Voodoo card do you use in that setup?

Sonnet 7200 PCI programming

Hi all

So my Apocalypse has arrived but before I dive straight in I have a few questions.



1. So from what I have been told the CPU is located under the heatsink at the end of the board But there is IC in the middle of the board near the ramix connectors (That’s what I’m calling them), does it require a heatsink or does it not get hot?

2. Do I have to do anything to it first apart from attach it to the ramix carrier?

3. Do I have to add any additional software or will my sonnet setup be ready to go?

Thanks for your time guys.

You need to bridge pins 11 and 12 on J2. Needs a small jumper (2mm I think)

Interesting.

Just thinking - 186MB --- isnt it somehow 128MB of RAM + 64MB of flash?

Make RAMdisk and try to fill it.

Sure, the library mutated to support flash memory

It is more likely that:

1) it is a 256 mb card together with a 256mb Radeon.
2) a wrong ENV setting.
3) a 256 mb card with some more resource hogging pci cards.

So I’ve been having some issues with the auto switch but it seems OK now

System:

A4000D 3.1 rom Alice with mediator 4000D MKIII
Cyberstorm MKII 060 Rev 1 128mb
FastATA 4000
EFlash 2mb (not setup to do anything yet)
Indy mkII with ratte auto switch

PCI Layout:
Apocalypse 128mb
Tested both Voodoo 3000 and ATI Radeon 9250 256mb
Pci network card
Spider USB II
Soundblaster 5.1 live
Mediator pci/Zorro card

OS: ClassicWB

I dont seem to have an envarc:sonnet/, I don't auto start the card BTW

I’m struggling to get QuakeWOS to run smooth so I must have something wrong

Observe the LEDs on the PPC board when it turns on. If the jumper is making good contact only one should light up, the orange one I think. Then when the library starts the green one should light up briefly (or I have that backward).
If the jumper is not making contact both LEDs should light up when the system turns on. This means it is already booting up into the debugger and you'll have lots of problems. With the jumper on, it should be holding the processor in reset until Hedeon infuses the board with his divine spark during initppc.
Only mentioning the jumper because it looks like you used a tall one and it's on upside-down.

Also this should not be a requirement but you could try setting envarc:sonnet/Harrier256MB=0 Not a requirement and this takes a cold shut down to take effect, a reboot will not set this properly.
Also make sure the Mediator is set for 512MB window size, which it looks like it is already by your screenshots.

And please get a dump of showconfig and pciinfo.

Thanks grelbfarlk,

I’ll give it ago later

Just to add I cannot find this envarc: Sonnet/ so maybe I’ve not installed it correctly.

Will look into doing a fresh install of the OS and starting again.

Also I will change my soundcard it seems to be causing me issues too.

My mediator is setup as

Master = Closed
Winsize = Closed
swap config = Closed
