Chameleon

Issue 163: FSB Detection cparm Branch !

Reported by Andy Moa, Aug 29, 2011

Could you please merge the FSB detection for AMDs K10 processors 
(like Evan did in the main branch ) Thanx alot

Owner: cparm

Comment 2 by Ernst Wtz, Aug 31, 2011

As cparm said i will post the issue i got with the new release here.

After "Chameleon starting" the system restarts with my AMD 
K10 System.
The old release is working without problems except FSB detection.

ok sorry for the delay, 

here is a version that should support AMD cpus, let me know if it 
work

thank

Comment 5 by Andy Moa, Sep 7, 2011

Nope  instant Reboot  !!

Tx for looking into it

Comment 6 by armel cadet-petit, Sep 7, 2011

can you please test this version,
nothing has changed so it will crash, but i have added some debug 
message + pause,
just tell me what is the last debug message that u can see before it 
reboot

cparm

thank, can you test this version

Comment 9 by Ernst Wtz, Sep 7, 2011

This version is working again but it stops two times at the 
beginning and it´s waiting for a key.
The messege that appears where it is stopping is:
1.Attemping to detect cpu mode
2. cpu mode is 32 bit

The FSB detection is also not working in this momment.

Thanks for your affords.

I will also post a dump from bdmesg:

cpuid 0x80000001 , press any key
cpuid 0x80000007 , press any key
cpuid 5 , press any key
measure tsc , press any key

Sorry i don´t recognized it that i´ve also to press a key after 
every line which is shown in bdmesg.

Thanks.

Comment 12 by armel cadet-petit, Sep 9, 2011

ok , can you test this version ?

Comment 13 by Ernst Wtz, Sep 9, 2011

Yeah men!
You are the best!!!
Everything is working perfect now.

Thank´s for your great work.

It´s really great that somebody did this for amd users.

Here a dump from bdmesg:

Comment 14 by armel cadet-petit, Sep 9, 2011

cool, 

and this one ?

Comment 15 by Ernst Wtz, Sep 10, 2011

This version is working too.

Whats the difference?

Again a dump from bdmesg:

Comment 16 by Ernst Wtz, Sep 10, 2011

On the second time i booted i got a wrong fsb:

Comment 17 by Ernst Wtz, Sep 10, 2011

But i booted again 4 times and everything was ok.
Seems that it was coincidence.

But it would be interessting to know the difference.

Thanks.

Comment 18 by Andy Moa, Sep 11, 2011

Works great ! Only thing i recognized is that i t gave me a never 
seen ACPI Error before it starts the Bootprocess(wich is fine)

This one : Error: Incorect ACPI RSD PTR or not found (might be 
related to me using a wrong /or missing a module)

and wondering about CPU: NoCores/NoThreads:     4/1  shouldnt it be 
the other way round or am i trippin ? 

Thanks again m8

Comment 19 by Andy Moa, Sep 11, 2011

Nevermind bout the acpi error it was again my fault ;)

used the codec and it wasnt in extra/acpi  now im on the acpipatcher 
and its smooth ;)

Comment 20 by armel cadet-petit, Sep 13, 2011

hi,
i just updated my branch, 

note that amd support is not by default, you need to unquote 
//#define AMD_SUPPORT in cpu.c

note 2: if AMD_SUPPORT is enabled intel support is disabled 

note 3: if you prefer i can move the amd code into a module

AMD users, feel free to report any bugs...

peace out,

cparm

Comment 21 by Andy Moa, Sep 14, 2011

AMD Code in Module is a very good idea ...my dream is a module 
exualy allows us AMD user to exualy go full on vanilla  without the 
need of patching a xnu kernel 

Very Good Work m8  !!!appreciated

Comment 22 by Ernst Wtz, Sep 14, 2011

Thx for your hard work.
With your new branch i got with bdmesg this:
AMD CPU Detection Enabled
CPU: Vendor/Model/ExtModel: 0x68747541/0x4/0x0
CPU: Family/ExtFamily:      0x10/0x1
CPU (AMD): TSCFreq:               3000MHz
CPU (AMD): FSBFreq:               200MHz
CPU (AMD): CPUFreq:               3000MHz
CPU (AMD): MaxCoef/CurrCoef:      0x0/0x0
CPU (AMD): MaxDiv/CurrDiv:        0x0/0x0
CPU: NoCores/NoThreads:     1/0
CPU: Features:              0x178bfbff
CPU: ExtFeatures:           0xefd3fbf

Is it correct that number of cores is 1, because mine is a quadcore!
Or does it only show the number of cpu´s?

Comment 23 by armel cadet-petit, Sep 14, 2011

oops, the bug is now fixed and my branch is updated , thank you.


now , can you test the attached version, where i try to go a little 
further on AMD cpus detection

cparm

Comment 24 by Andy Moa, Sep 14, 2011

Tryed  works just fine

AMD CPU Detection Enabled
CPU: Vendor/Model/ExtModel: 0x68747541/0x4/0x0
CPU: Family/ExtFamily:      0x10/0x1
CPU (AMD): TSCFreq:               3214MHz
CPU (AMD): FSBFreq:               200MHz
CPU (AMD): CPUFreq:               3214MHz
CPU (AMD): MaxCoef/CurrCoef:      0x0/0x0
CPU (AMD): MaxDiv/CurrDiv:        0x0/0x0
CPU: NoCores/NoThreads:     4/4
CPU: Features:              0x178bfbff
CPU: ExtFeatures:           0xefd3fbff

What exactly are you tryin may i ask

Comment 25 by armel cadet-petit, Sep 14, 2011

it should detect the correct number of core(s) and thread(s) for AMD 
cpus (since the method appear to not be exactly the same as intel 
cpus) 
and also the platform type (mobile or desktop)

1 have you changed the cpu frequency (is 3214mhz the good frequency 
?)
2 can you send a complete bdmesg dump.

cparm

Comment 26 by Andy Moa, Sep 14, 2011

tx for explaining the modules i used u can see in the bdmesg anyway 
rest is done by dsdt 

here is the dump

Comment 27 by Andy Moa, Sep 14, 2011

CPU is the rite one since we are 2 different people who are testing  
here ;)

Comment 28 by Ernst Wtz, Sep 15, 2011

Now everything is working fine.

The only thing is that sometimes the feb detection is wrong. I´ve 
posted it a few posts before.

But it is really rarely that this appears.

Thx again for your work.
