Hi !

This thread should give you JMicron-plagued guys / girls a roundup,
which kernels work with the JMicron chipset built on (Asus) P5B, P5W and other Boards & which settings are needed

It primarily addresses IDE/ATAPI-Problems since a lot of you have a DVD-Burner/CD-Drive connected to it & can't even install gentoo :!:
Since I don't actually have additional SATA-(hard)drives I can't tell you if SATA/Raid/Native mode of the controller works with these kernels, you'll have to find out for yourselves...

I can only say / report the experience I make with my own configuration (P5W DH Deluxe, Bios 1402):
* Raid0 connected to the EZ-Backup (Hardware-Raid)
* 2 IDE-Harddrives connected to the JMicron-Controller (JMB361-part (IDE), JMB363 should be the SATA-part)
* DVD-Burner connected to the Intel ICH8R

Here are some infos for you S-ATA-drive users:

gentoo-wiki.com HARDWARE SATA

The first candidates are:

no-sources (by cheater1034 & eremini )
they feature:
* related to the spirit of -love's (love sources) original -mm base and featureset
* performance patches by con koliva
* mm-patches
* gentoo-specific stuff (vesafb-tng, fbsplash)
* fixes

1) 2.6.18-rc4-no2 "To be..." | (Super Fix/Stability Attempt?) this release is highly recommended, since it supports loads of hardware (including Jmicron & Intel ICH8/R; besides that my livecds are based on it)
here a download-link to it, for direct download:
download 2.6.18-rc4-no2

2) (Removed / offline) 2.6.18-rc4-no4 "Hands Up!" | (mm-3, UNOFFICIAL) this works fine for me, however it was removed due to cheater's request (unofficial no-sources release & naming issues)

3) to be continued ...

The second are:

emission-sources / viper-sources (by vipernicus )
It's based on a stable kernel, so it might be interesting for those, who don't like rc*-releases & still want their newest hardware to be supported ...

1) 2.6.17-emission8: TIE Fighter Tango! you need to apply the Hotfix / reverse patch of 025-patch-2.6.17-ide1 in order to work with ICH7, ICH8 ...

2) 2.6.18-viper1: Mutatis Mutandis this kernel shows random lockup for me (all kernels vanilla-2.6.18 based), but perhaps you have luck)
you probably need to append "irqpoll" to grub

3) 2.6.18-emission1: Pathological Euphoria
This kernel is based on stable 2.6.18 & has some fine performance & responsiveness enhancements
it works without any problems on x86 & amd64 => now you can use AHCI / Raid / Basic Mode in Bios for JMicron (P5W DH Deluxe) without any problems
you have to add
Code:
"irqpoll"
to lilo or grub, though

4) beyond-sources: 2.6.19-beyond1 to -beyond3 work well,
they, however, have the same issues like 2.6.19

Update:
if you're only using the libata-driver-part (newer S-ATA + experimental PATA-drivers) you should be able to boot with this kernel without use of "irqpoll"
(thanks to ChL@Gentoo for this tip!)

The third are:

mm-sources (kernel-sources by Andrew Morton)
as far as I know these sources are officially supported by gentoo (correct me if I'm wrong)

1) 2.6.18-rc4-mm1:
Code:
 emerge =mm-sources-2.6.18_rc4-mm1


2) 2.6.18-rc4-mm2:
Code:
 emerge =mm-sources-2.6.18_rc4-mm2


3) 2.6.18-rc4-mm3:
Code:
 emerge =mm-sources-2.6.18_rc4-mm3
(worked for me but it varies)

4) 2.6.18-mm1:
Code:
 emerge =mm-sources-2.6.18-r1
(works fine for x86 & amd64)
works with option
Code:
"irqpoll"
+
Code:
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_JMICRON is not set
CONFIG_PATA_JMICRON=y
CONFIG_ATA_JMICRON=y


now using libata-driver with JMicron:
Code:
 <*>   JMicron PATA support                                                       
            <*>   JMicron non-AHCI support (Experimental)


5) 2.6.18-mm2:
Code:
 emerge =mm-sources-2.6.18-r2

works with option
Code:
"irqpoll"
+ libata-drivers (sky2 / Marvel network-driver works somehow)

6) 2.6.18-mm3:
Code:
 emerge =mm-sources-2.6.18-r3

works with option
Code:
"irqpoll"
+ libata-drivers (sky2 / Marvel network-driver is broken!)

7) 2.6.19-rc*-mm* & 2.6.19-rc* work with
Code:
"irqpoll"
(libata)
you better install them by hand since they produce errors & sandbox-violations!! (when emerged via portage)

7.1) 2.6.19-rc4-mm2 & 2.6.19-rc4-mm1 work fine with
Code:
"irqpoll"
(append this command to grub / lilo with the "" !!)
the
Code:
ACPI Processor P-States driver
cpufrequency switching driver is broken

but a work-around for this is using the:
Code:
<*>   Intel Enhanced SpeedStep
 [*]     Use ACPI tables to decode valid frequency/voltage (deprecated)
 [*]     Built-in tables for Banias CPUs 


8) 2.6.19 works pretty well
except for the fact that:
- the bootup takes pretty long, when no harddrives are connected to the EZ-Backup connectors
- after some long uptime there's an timeout on connected ATAPI-drives on the Intel ICH7R (the hdd led lights are constantly on), this is fixed beginning with around >=2.6.19-git9

9) 2.6.20-rc1 should work fine, since I have no IDE-harddrives connected to the JMicron anymore I can't tell ...

9) to be continued ...

All other kernels which support the JMicron chipset (>=2.6.18-rc5-mm1 ---> 2.6.18 stable) do show a bad behavior with bringing the controller up for me (takes 9 minutes + more :!: )
this (slow bootup) can be solved with the option "irqpoll" (adding it to grub / lilo), however I have no access to the JMicron controller then & the computer locks up without a chance to react to keyboard commands ...

Update:
2.6.18-mm1, 2.6.18-mm2, 2.6.18-mm3, 2.6.18-emission1 should work fine (when using libata)

Now how to you enable the IDE-part of the controller? FIXME: (has to be updated => on the newest kernels use [b]libata) + "irqpoll" [/b]

(here the settings which should be necessary for almost everyone with a ATAPI/IDE-Drive connected to it ...)

For older Kernels (before 2.6.18 stable)

Code:
Device Drivers  --->  ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support  ---> 
<*> ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support                                         
<*>   Enhanced IDE/MFM/RLL disk/cdrom/tape/floppy support

Here is a list of the AHCI controllers supported by 2.6.18-rc6-mm2. It has been compiled by taking the entries in
Code:
static const struct pci_device_id ahci_pci_tbl[]
and running the vendor id/device id through /usr/share/misc/pci.ids.

If you run lspci on a suitable motherboard then the text it outputs should match one or more of the following lines:

yes, it is! Thank you wynn

the only line I get concerning JMicron is:
Code:
02:00.0 IDE interface: JMicron Technologies, Inc. JMicron 20360/20363 AHCI Controller (rev 02)


how is that kernel doing with the JMicron controller for you (are you using it in Raid-mode ?) ?

Just an interested observer :D

The hottest, latest here is ABIT AA8XE with Pentium 4/775 550 :D :D

I use 2.6.18-rc4-mm2 (many thanks for your install cd).
Works good for me. I also tried 2.6.18_rc6-r2 which includes complete support in the SATA section. As I remember, it was working fine (devices hde) but incompatible withe nvidia drivers.
I have one big problem which is not kernel related: I'm not able ton use grub. It gives me an error 21 at boot. Lilo works fine. My config: 2 PATA device on the Jmicron: a cd player and my boot disk. Is anyone launching grub from the PATA controller?

hi,

i'm not sure i understand this... are you saying, that i might get SATA-RAID1 working my Asus A8R-MVP Mainboard (atm it doesn't with dmraid).
the chip is a ALI/Uli m5288..

@belgique:

that's strange, how have you installed grub ? by updating /etc/mtab & then
Code:
grub-install /dev/hd*
?

I installed it with grub and the grub shell which gave me no errors :/.

Is the official 2.6.18 kernel works with JMicron, or you need mm-sources? I don't want to use reiser4 currently.

2.6.18 didn't work for me,

2.6.18-mm1 works with "irqpoll" boot-option, if you don't want reiser4, just deselect it :wink:
I think there won't be any performance decrease of your system then ...

my settings:

Code:
   ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support  ---> 
< > ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support 


Code:
 Serial ATA (prod) and Parallel ATA (experimental) drivers  --->
 <*> ATA device support                                                           
             <*>   AHCI SATA support                                                           
             < >   ServerWorks Frodo / Apple K2 SATA support                                   
             <*>   Intel PIIX/ICH SATA support
 <*>   Generic ATA support
 <*>   JMicron PATA support                                                       
            <*>   JMicron non-AHCI support (Experimental)


I don't know if you need the old ATA-layer for ATAPI / IDE-drives to work with the ICH7 / ICH8 / ICH7R / ICH8R

I currently don't have a motherboard with JMicron chip, but I want to buy a new one with this controller soon (ICH8 + JMicron). So I searching the forums to know what to expect.

Hey


My friend is switching from windows to gentoo linux and he is facing a problem with his ICH8 RAID controller.

He managed to install gentoo using the 2006.1 amd64 liveCD in a SATA driver without any problems. But gentoo can't find his RAID controller. Do you guys know what kernel options should be enabled?

AFAIK this card has ICH8 RAID and SATA controller and JMicron IDE controller.

update: I just saw this http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-493886-highlight-p5b.html topic. Sry about that, I've been searching the forums all week and I haven't found that earlier.

Still, there is no solution for now and I'd really apreciate any help

OgRo, you could try vipernicus' new stable emission sources 2.6.18-emission1: Pathological Euphoria

set up:

Code:

and disable

oh, I forgot: you have to use
Code:
"irqpoll"
add it to grub or lilo
in order to accelerate the booting, otherwise it takes 5-10 minutes to bring the JMicron-controller up :wink:

Hi,

I managed to boot the "small gentoo", amd64-release without problems (SATA and network working) on my P5B-VM with a core 2 duo. My problem now is that I want to use VServer to create virtual hosts on this box. To do that I need a special kernel, vserver-sources. I haven't tried to boot that kernel yet (I haven't even installed anything yet) but I guess it will have the same problems with the JMicron controller as other Gentoo kernels.

So, how can I get 2.6.18-mm1 with the vserver patches?

Hi Per Wiklander,

glad the CD worked for you

try out the following:

* vanilla-2.6.18
* vserver-patch provided from phreak
* libata-git patch from vipernicus' emission1 release 2.6.18-emission1
emission1 patches

alternatively:

*2.6.18-m1
*vserver-patch

you have to activate JMicron & Intel ICH support in S-ATA

hope that helps ...

I'm using the no-sources 2.6.18-rc4 "To be.." kernel. Everything seems to be working fine except that the system clock is running 2-3 times faster.

Has anyone else run into this issue?

The clock was running fine on the livecd, and I've removed all the ACPI stuff from the kernel, but still no luck

system time to fast

This worked out just fine. I also pacthed it with most of the pathes from gentoo-sources (except the sata stuff of course).

A word of warning to any JMicron users who are thinking of emerging the vanilla 2.6.19-x kernels.

The header file, config.h is now deprecated and so ebuilds compiled against the kernel will almost certainly fail.

Builds compiled against the kernel can also cause sandbox violations.

Both these problems can be resolved using diff patches, but it's probably easier to use a patched 2.6.18 kernel, as described in previous posts.

@hunphi96: thanks & welcome to gentoo

well I didn't notice that since I patch the kernels by myself :wink:
but good that you reported it, this will save gentoo-newcomers a lot of trouble

the 2.6.19-branch shouldn't be used (especially not yet the mm-branch) since various things still don't work (frequency-switching e.g. is broken in conjunction with P5W DH Deluxe & Conroe, ...)

besides that frequency-switching of
Quote:
X86_ACPI_CPUFREQ
doesn't work they seem to work pretty stable (using 2.6.19-rc4-mm2 right now)


Update:


found a work-around (at least for Intel Core 2 Duos):
set
Code:
<*>   Intel Enhanced SpeedStep                                                   
[*]     Use ACPI tables to decode valid frequency/voltage (deprecated)           
[*]     Built-in tables for Banias CPUs     


instead of
Code:
 <*>   ACPI Processor P-States driver


- if your adventurous & are into bugtracking try them out

- if you want to be safe / go the safe way, use the 2.6.18* kernels

I also patched the vanilla kernel cause I wanted to avoid an experimental kernel:

Does anyone know if gentoo-sources-2.6.18-r2 supports PATA on the JMicron controller?
