Drivers requests for DSM 5.2


Recommended Posts

After some testing I found "something":

Without sas/scsi controller (just sata drives) I have want_idx messages when a least 2 disks are connected.

No matter the dsm version, messages starts with 2 disks, with one disk no message.

In my DS412+ system sleep 10sec for each disk at boot.

 

The want_idx messages are generated by the sd_probe function in sd.c:

A while function compare index and want_idx while an autoincrement value is < 15.

According to the info in source code, this is used to be sure that the scsi drive is ready.

I will try to comment out this while function and/or decrease the value (like 3 or 4).

 

Funny thing is

With the older SAS card 1068E chipset it works fine

 

eg when I try

S5000PSL Motherboard (which has 6 onboard SATA)

4gb ram

HP SC44Ge card, hooked to a 6bay SAS expander backplane containing 6 x 450Gb 15K SAS Drives......with no drives attached to SATA controller at all

 

Can install, configure and it survives a reboot fine

 

System is quite happy, just a bit slow to boot with the want_idx errors

 

SMART works

Can't configure the write caching......but watching the logs it's enabled anyway

 

So with me, it's only the later cards giving me trouble :roll:

@stanza :

can you test with your mpt2sas based controllers with only 2-3 disks

In my tests I only use 2-3 disks with my LSI 9211-4i.

 

@Eduardo and Danyz :

I will repost all usb related modules compiled with v4.

Other USB devices: USB to serial FTDI.

What about it ?

 

@didlawowo :

When you insmod usbnet/ insmod ax88179, does the ifconfig see something ? Any messages in the xpenology console ?

 

@hawie :

powernow-k8 module is already included. Try to insmod it

Hmmm thats weird

 

Doing the testing for you Trantor with the H200 card

 

I made a mistake and used synoboot-trantor-4.2-3211-v1.2.img instead of synoboot-3810-pre-v1.1_v4.img

 

Machine booted really quick

found all 6 drives quickly, no want_idx errors at all

 

Naturally I couldn't install the XPEnology_trantor_v1.0_DSM_DS3612xs_3810.pat file

 

but I was amazed how fast it found the controller / drives :shock:

 

anyways, on with the testing

Hi Danyz,

 

Your photo is small. Please, read my previous post. Do you have any UPS plugged to the NAS?

 

Hi, you was right, XPEnology boots without any problem if the UPS is unplugged.

I tried to connect the UPS after syno has (properly) booted, got the same error message ("fixing recursive...") and XPEnology freeze...

Hi Trantor,

 

I really don't think the problem has to do with FTDI. In fact, the adapter works fine.

ARGH!!!

 

I have got this sorted if I can just work out Binary :roll:

 

found something interesting.

 

You you change the sections of /etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf

 

internalportcfg=

esataportcfg=

usbportcfg=

 

Whilst the system is up and going

 

and the storagemanager (Both volume and HDD Management) will change "on the fly"

 

so now my problem is

 

What do I set

internalportcfg=

usbportcfg=

 

both too?

 

eg

I have 9 USB ports

and

22 Internal ports

 

what hex code to I use for each?

 

**update**

OK I have tried the following

 

esataportcfg="0x00000"
usbportcfg="0xf300000"
internalportcfg="0xcfffff"

0000 0111 1111 1100 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 = 0xf300000 = 9?
0000 0000 0000 0011 1111 1111 1111 1111 1111 = 0xcfffff =22?

 

And I can get all drives up... but it also brings up the boot USB key...and logs errors about smart temps :evil:

seems like it wants the internal drives to come 1st...then the USB ports (in the binary count) as if I do it the other way around

 

eg

0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0001 1111 1111 = 0x1ff = 9?
0000 0111 1111 1111 1111 1111 1110 0000 0000 = 0x7ffffe00 =22?

 

all drives dissapear :roll:

Wow ! This is very nice :smile:

Can you give us more informations about your settings ?

Did you change the maxdisks (default 12) parameter in synoinfo.cfg ?

What about want_idx messages ?

Please add driver for Realtek 8110SC (onboard LAN in gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2H)

 

Anyone manage to use it?

 

-Roei

 

I post the modified r8169 driver (http://xpenology.trantor.be/beta/r8169.ko) which will handle your network card.

Will be included in next repack.

I have a different MB, but it needs the same driver - has it been included in the repack yet? Thanks for all your work - it's a great help!

Hi,

 

first thanks of your work :wink:

I use a Asus H87I-PLUS Mainboard and the last xpenology 4.3.

If i activate the power up on pcie event (WOL) and shutdown the system over xpenology shutdown button the system goes down und aver 1-2 second it start up again.

Is this a driver problem ?

 

thanks forr feedback and see you

Yes, It works like a charm! thanks a lot!!! :lol:

 

Another request, would you please add AR8161 NIC support?

common MBs with this IC, mine is Gigabyte Z77-DS3H.

 

lspci:

1969:1091 Atheros Communications AR8161 Gigabit Ethernet

v1.0 already include this driver:

Add ATHEROS alx driver (Qualcomm Atheros AR816x/AR817x support)

 

I have a different MB, but it needs the same driver (r8169)- has it been included in the repack yet?

Yes patched r8169 driver is included since beta 1.1_v3

 

v1.1_v3.7z and v1.1_v4 are crashing when booting my N54L with APC Back-UPS RS 550GI or when plugging the UPS if the N54L is running yet :cry: . All the xpenology prior versions worked like a charm.

 

My mistake is to only put the kernel in my betas and not the modules associate to it, so modules are not always compatible.

I will upload updated usb modules soon. Same thing for CIFS (mount point.)

Must investigate for iscsi as it's works in v1.0 on my test system.

WOL can't work after the system power off by xpenology.

ds finder and router the same problem.

If I pull out the power cable from pc , wol can work by both.

this is new Mb problem.

Please take it as your reference

Hi Trantor,

Take you time! We're not in a rush.

Your work is very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Hey

I'm planning to use the following hardware:

 

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z87MX-D3H

RAID Controller: LSI MegaRAID SAS 9341-8i

H.D.D: HGST Deskstar NAS 3.5-Inch 4TB (8 drives)

SSD: Corsair Force Series GS CSSD-F360GBGS-BK (Directly attached to board)

NIC: Intel PWLA8494GT PRO/1000 GT

 

I'm wondering if this hardware will work with DSM 4.3

 

Thank you
