, its my first time modding this type of file

it looks like you did not use the tool that are supposed to be used i guess - "diff"

also if comparing with a 3615/17 synoinfo.conf then there are more settings then just maxlanports=4

eth2_mtu="1500"
eth2_wol_options="d"
eth3_mtu="1500"
eth3_wol_options="d"

 

 beside the part in the "upper" part of jun's patch  there is also the lower part where the file /usr/sbin/init.post is patched

that also contains changes like

+_replace 'esataportcfg="0x10"' 'esataportcfg="0x0"' /tmpRoot/etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf
+_replace 'internalportcfg="0xf"' 'internalportcfg="0xffff"' /tmpRoot/etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf
+_replace 'maxdisks="4"' 'maxdisks="16"' /tmpRoot/etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf

you where skipping to add the changes there, why?

what about extra2.lzma?

Hi IG-88

 

Thanks for replying, can you expand on this comment I am unsure of what you mean/refer to:

I had missed the lower part of the patch file and I guess would need to add:

 

+_replace 'maxlanport="2"' 'maxlanport="4"' /tmpRoot/etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf

 

I found the extra.lmza and extra2.lmza similar so made my mods to both files, for brevity I only posted the extra.lmza for comment, or does the extra2 require different modification?

 

I ignored the wol options as I did not think it important in my use case or do they need to be specified for programming reasons to enable the mtu values to be changed?

 

I came about the lan ports mod when I had issues with my new 918+ baremetal install only seeing 2 nics, I observed that when I modified the file '/etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf' and changed this value to 4 I got my additional 2 ports to appear in DSM. I decided to try and make this change permanent in the loader and began to investigate. I don't know the ins/outs of how the loader fil;es work but based on observation of the contained code I made the following assumptions:

 

1. The override file probably passes in values to the DSM that override the set ones in either the kernel or loader files (or both maybe)

2. Both lmza archives would require the same mods to the same files

3. I should endevour, where possible, to place code mods in the loader on a line  where existing mods near the actual lines in the file being modified are located

 

Cheers for the help

the patch files in extra and extra2 are different, just look for the size of the files

7.836 Bytes vs 7.613 Bytes

diff is a command that its used to create diff files aka the patch (it could also be named *.diff as it is the result of comparing 2 or more files with diff and getting a patch that will change the 1st file into the 2nd)

https://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man1/diff.1.html

ifaik thats the normal way to create a diff/patch file jun's jun.patch is a file containing diff's for more then one file, the normal way would be to use a original synoinfo.conf, do all the patches jun's patch does, change the additional parts you want to have, make a new patch with diff and exchange the parts about synoinfo.conf in jun.patch

and you should have a look what the lower part (kind of patch in a patch) is used for and i'd expect you would need to make changes there too

at least thats the way i would have doen it when trying to make a new (better?) patch that might also contain a upgrade to the maxdrive to 24 (but that needs even more changes like the driver pattern for internal and usb drives

yes but it that makes further problems when using wol ... i tend to make it as good as i can, going half way and knowing there will be problems and complains is the reason i did not do that patch (beside the fact that it would need even more time i would have to invest into xpenology)

i did document this >2 nic problem and possible change about 2 years ago

as i did not really tried to make a new patch i never looked for how it plays into the boot process, might be just important for 1st boot when installing?

problem here is we dont know for sure why there are two files and two patches, i did test a little and and wrote min opinion into the additional driver thread, in the end no one ever wrote about this as the use is somewhere in jun's additional kernel bzImage (1st parttition) and cant be figured out easily

i ended up to make the driver changes in both files to make sure it works under all conditions

with some luck it might work that way as the program "patch" uses a guess to apply a mismatched patch, but i also have seen this fail so if you dont try it 1st to see if iits working its much safer to do that diff/patch properly using the diff command

By chance the overall Synology versions are available for the registered preview testers (I will not share, please don't ask), and I tried the 3617XS on an Xpenology baremetal under DSM 6.2.3-25426 Update 2.

 

The update is well accepted, and installation worked fine (btw June Loader 1.03b is still compatible 👌), with final automated reboots etc. but then it block exactly as for the install from 6.2.2 to 6.2.3 = the new DSM7.0 install reset the additional drivers and a new extra.lzma aligned with DSM7.0 is needed to restore NICs support (and I assume the other requested drivers).

 

after testing the loaders 1.03b for 3615 and 1.04b for 918+ with 7.0 preview i'd say that's not the case, the loaders do not work anymore with the kernel of dsm 7.0

jun used a "pre" kernel (bzImage on 1st partition of the loader) that is started by grub and that loads the the synology kernel and i guess that's the point where it fails, the synology kernel is not loaded properly and it fails to start, resulting in dsm not booting (drivers like extra.lzma come later into play)

i guess it needs to be the same kernel version to step from a running "pre" kernel into loading a new kernel and as synology changed the base kernel version in all three dsm versions, we have loaders for, it will not work with any of them

 

3615   3.10.105 -> 3.10.108

3617   3.10.105 -> 4.4.180+

918+    4.4.59+ -> 4.4.180+

 

all loaders throw a

va not found
Failed to process header

on the serial console when booting with the new 7.0 kernel and stop after this

(as @OllieD already wrote some days ago https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/33940-dsm-7-preview/?do=findComment&comment=164967)

 

case closed i'd say

Yes they are different sizes as they contain a differing quantity of programming lines, the syntaxs and structures in both seem the same though. I would gues that the extra2 file has less lines/content as it may serve a differnet process in the loader (possibly upgrades maybe).

I used the following post as a guide to unpack the lzma archives, modify internal files and then repack:

I concur, did the same, better safe than sorry.

My mistake I should have elaborated more, the lzma and also the other files I used where tested on a test install(s) to amalgamate all the mods I would need for my bare metal install. Once I was happy I performed a fresh bare metal install using all the mods/hacks I required for my HW platform, so my finally production install occured as I required with collected files and hacks.

 

The reason for posting the lzma is my near complete lack of specific knowledge of how the code I entered may affect other things (unintended consequences) and I was after comment from an experienced set of eyes. This worked, you have pointed out the part of the patch file I missed.

 

In hindsight I should have started with a slighlty older version of DSM so I could test the efficacy of my mods after performing an upgrade/update. The mods work for the latest version but may not remain functional in an upgrade scenario. I may repeat all my steps but in a VM environment to try and gain a confidence level regards upgrading.

Hi, IG-88,

my board is j4105.

DSM version 6.2.3 25426

extra.lzma v0.13.3

 

I tried to transcoding some videos with hardware acceleration and found that it didn't work

 

image.png.8d4757f302b691012fcc7d569ee66fea.png

 

image.png.a38cee22400196bec10423e5f8c76e15.png

 

the result video size is very small, and no video frame in it, just only audio data. I try transcoding command line(same MOV format video), get the same result.

 

Partial transcoding log(return video:0kB audio:159kB):

the /dev/driv/ is normal,

image.png.dcf5ef5f3b86b7f31a9597b771885c63.png

 

and the driver is normal

image.png.109b1267d2786c3f880541c92e98cb32.png

 

Everything looks normal, but it just doesn't return normal results, I found an error in a section of log in DMESG, I don't know whether it is related to this, please help to confirm whether this section of log indicates that the graphics card has been driven normally

Hi, IG-88,

my board is j4105.

DSM version 6.2.3 25426

extra.lzma v0.13.3

 

I tried to transcoding some videos with hardware acceleration and found that it didn't work

 

 

Turn off the VT-D and it will work normally!!!

 But there is a problem, if VT-D is needed, hardware acceleration and VT-D,  I have to choose one or the other?

Hello,

 

The only loader and version I could get working on my hardware is the 1.04b (DS918+) with 6.2.3

Asrock x570m, Ryzen 3400g. So far so good after a few days of troubleshooting.

 

However I am planning on using an Asus XG-C100C (based on Aquantia  AQC-100?)

I see there are extra.lzma for the DS3615, 3617 and DS916+ found at https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/9508-driver-extension-jun-102bdsm61x-for-3615xs-3617xs-916/

 

Were these drivers included in "extra918plus_v0.13.3"? Because I can't get the card to detect.

 

My config is set as follows :

 

set mac1=7 (snip) 9 (Asus)
set mac2=2 (snip) 3 (Intel from mobo)
set netif_num=2  (I assume this tells it to look for 2 NIC's? Otherwise I'm not sure what's missing.)

 

aside from VID/PID/SN the rest is all default.

 

Thanks!

Hi,

what is the best network adapter for syno?
I tried the HP NC550SFP, but with it the syno sometimes disappeared from the network and had to reboot the system, now I installed the Mellanox X2 - it works without such problems.

I thought to put Intel X520-DA2

Anybody has realtek 8168 network card?? I have faced with some issue on the last extra.lzma(13.3), the maximum speed of copying one big file is 17MB/s via the samba.

Also I have tried USB 3 network adapter, with the same file and cable and receive 70-80 MB/s  It looks very strange for me. The system shows connection speed as 1000Mbps,Full duplex, MTU 2000

I have similar problem with Realtek 8168 on TerraMaster F2-421.

I installed by using extra.lzma/extra2.lzma for loader 1.04b ds918+ DSM 6.2.3 v0.13.3 and everything seems ok except network speed.

Speed is unstable and slow:

Did I use wrong drive extension?

in theory adapter that work with the drivers delivered in dsm will be best as they should even work when no additional driver is working and usually synology will maintain the driver if needed

3617 might have some newer drivers over the 3615 (like with the mpt3sas)

 

your hp card uses be2net.ko as driver, never used such card myself, the driver is the one from the kernel (3.10.105) so its pretty old

there are sometimes firmware updates for hardware components requiring a newer driver version - you would need to dig deeper on hp to review problems and cases like tis one

https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=emr_na-a00016433en_us

could be you new a newer firmware, could also be you need a older to work properly

if its not working with older yet you could try newer firmware

 

i use a older broadcom card (not native), a older qnap tehuti based (compatible with synology aka native) and e newer tehuti oem (needs newer driver and phy firmware)

all three 10G cards

 

"older" mellanox was often used as they where cheap to buy and are native in 3615/17 so your mellanox seems to be a good choice

I have a question about the differences of v0.13.3 and v0.12.1

what really defers them appart?

Does version 12 just reinclude juns original mpt2sas/mpt3sas driver found in the 1.04b loader? But updated i915 driver?

in 12.1 the files raid_class.ko, scsi_transport_spi.ko, scsi_transport_sas.ko are the files that came with jun's original loader, they base either on synology's 3 year old beta kernel source (22259) or vanilla source from kernel.org

when compiling with the "recent"  6.2.2 (24922) source then smart and temp is gone but its working stable with disk hibernation, some one with c++ knowledge would need to dig through synology's kernel source to find out why (i do have a hunch but its pretty time consuming to find out and might be useless in the end)

it seems to be about base functionality that is independent from the hardware driver (mpt2sas/mpt3sas)

 

in 13.3 the 3 files are made from 6.2.2 kernel source (we don't have 6.2.3's source) working safely but missing smart functionality

in contrary to 3615/17 scsi/sas in no base of the kernel for 918+ as its released from synology, there does not seem to be a missing dependency (missing kernel module) but still there is something wrong/missing, might be a dead end when its something that's can't be loaded by a module (like we have with hyper-v support)

But updated i915 driver?

short:

jun's driver is gone

 

longer:

when using jun's original extra/extra2 with 6.2.3 then the other drivers work again because the change from 6.2.2 was reverted, but with the changes in the 6.2.3 kernel source for synology's new i915 driver now prevent jun's i915 from loading and at the same time jun's driver renders synology's new driver useless as it is not loaded

 

extra long:

in synology's 4.4.59 based 918+ kernel was only the vanilla kernel.org i915 driver, that was ok for synology as they only wanted support up to apollolake but that left out newer cpu's for us

a newer i915 driver (backport by jun) was added with loader 1.04b, that driver was able to make intel qsv available up to coffeelake

when synology launched the 920+ geminilake based units lately they needed a newer driver and as 7.0 was not ready they had to backport a newer i915 driver themself, they used a slightly older version then jun did and also did it the synology way and that was incompatible to the way jun did it, they might have taken some additional patches to make it run better with geminilake, in the end 6.2.3 came with a i915 driver that seems to work better then jun's (now over 2 years older implementation)

so since 6.2.3 my extra/extra2 does not contain jun's additional kernel modules for i915 and also removes them from disk (update folder) when still present - the loader only updates or add files from extra/extra2, no delete from disk if not present in extra/extra2, but files in update are loaded before the normal path so if jun's driver is present in update it prevents synology's new driver from loading (and jun's driver does not work with the changes from kernel in 6.2.3)

Thanks for that indepth compare between the two. So essentially, if I'm satisfied with the overall performance of 6.2.2 with no use of extra\extra2, i should have the same results with 6.2.3 using v0.12.1?

I never have and never will use hdd hibernation, power is not a concern to me.

yes without hdd hibernation it should be fine

 

 it would be possible to make a extra/extra2 with all drivers original jun, only leaving out the i915 stuff and a slightly mod to the patch to removes the old i915 if present (that would only be needed when its not a fresh install but to make it work under all conditions it should be present)

but that version would only work as intended (hardware transcoding support) when used with 6.2.3 so consequently it should be a complete loader with the new 6.2.3 kernel files on the 2nd partition, that way it would only be possible to install 6.2.3 or newer with that loader version - but i'm not going to distribute a whole loader, some one else would need to do this, i would only provide extra/extra2 and instructions on how to finish the loader (which i already did in the line above)

is a sound good - may be you know good cheaper 2x10Gb port nic for syno?

maybe this

thats a ConnectX-3, thats even on the official list from synology

https://www.synology.com/en-global/compatibility?search_by=products&model=DS3617xs&category=network_interface_cards&filter_brand=Mellanox&p=1

 

afaik these are supported be the driver that synology has in 3615/17

ConnectX MT254xx
ConnectX-2 MT264xx
ConnectX-3 MT275xx
ConnectX-IB MT276xx
ConnectX-4 MT277xx

 

only newer x-5/6 cards are not supported (might be possible from external  source)

Dear friends I'stucked trying grup recognize my new SATA Card (I added 4 to a Gigagyte b365 with 6ports) . So, firstly DSM 6.2.3 recognize it, and works ok, but after re-start o block-out doesnt recognize directly. I have to disconnect data cable from new Card , and restart againg DSM, after hot plug again cable, and works again. I don't knwo how to edit a config grub or install windows drivers to DSM.. could anyone give me some tips ? thk very much in advance. 

 

card added

the chip in general should work, the driver is ahci and part of synologys kernel, is you suspect a driver/kernel issue you could try migrating to ds3615, that uses a older kernel compared with 918+ (you did not write which of the 3 possible types you installed)

 

might be quality issues with the card or heat problems

the later can be checked by inspecting the heat sink, is it a good fit, as the heat sink is removable you could remove it and check the thermal solution, maybe its a rubber pad and its not working properly, you could try removing it and replace it with normal thermal grease as used for cpu's

 

if you can send it back and get you money back that might be a solution too, i'd suggest a JMB585 based 5port controller, this chip has pcie 3.0 support,also uses 2 pcie lanes, resulting in double bandwidth compared to the controller you have (max 1000MB/s vs max 2000MB/s)
