Okay, I write this just in case anybody has the same experience.

So I recently purchased a Asus P5W DH Delux (p5wdh) and expirenced some nasty problems (not only with Linux)

Download latest BIOS here: ftp://dlsvr02.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5W%20DH%20Deluxe/

Some usefull Info

DISABLE EZ_RAID (SIL-4723) and get 4 full speed ICH7 SATA ports
Quote:
remove EZ-Backup jumpers (page 2-27)
enable "EZ Backup RAID Mode Change" in the BIOS (page 4-31)
attache SATA Disk to the EZ_RAID1 port


The SIL-4723 is just a "splitter" which splits one SATA (in our caste the ICH7 port2) port into two ports.
http://www.siliconimage.com/products/product.aspx?id=64
This is just a cheap way to get an one more port without the need of drivers and use these as raid.

Be aware of this bug and dont hotplug devices on this PMP!

Okay, lets hunt the bugs down.



Hotpluging on EZ_RAID (SIL-4723)

Warning:

DONT, DO not even think about doing this. That damn SIL-4723 sucks in storage mode
and rendes a drive completely useless when you hotplug it once or twice.

Drivers for JMicron 20360/20363 AHCI Controller
Quote:
Sollution:
-->I am using kernel 2.6.23 without irqpoll and it seems to work <---
To get a driver use Kernel > 2.6.19 and append the option IRQPOLL to your kernel boot line
To get rid of soft lockup disable the controller in the BIOS
No more softlocks with recent Kernel

Okay, it seems as if this bug has vanished during the time. No more softlock
If you want to follow the bug on the Kernel bugtracker follow th links below
Warning:
This driver is IMHO buggy. I get a soft lockup after some time.
"BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU#0!"
Bug has vanished

As of 2.6.23* the driver will be in cluded in the kernel.
Use followin ebuild to get this USB-WLAN-Chip to work with recent kernels:

Comment:
Use the "ipw" wpa_supplicant driver. When you start wpa_supplicant it tells you to use "wext" but thsi didn't work for me.
"Linux wireless extensions version 21 detected. ipw2x00 driver uses driver_wext (-Dwext) instead of driver_ipw."

Use lirc >=0.8.2_pre1

Warning:
Comment:
echo 'LIRC_DEVICES="asusdh"' >> /etc/make.conf
The divise will show in the list as "lirc_devices_asusdh"
I had to enable "raw HID device support" in the kernel
I created the device with "mknod /dev/usb/hiddev0 c 180 96"
(aktualy I dont know it is was neccessary, cause I created it bevor I enabled "raw HID device support" in the kernel)
For Kernel < 2.6.23 Remove any options from /etc/conf.d/lircd (LIRCD_OPTS="")
For 2.6.23 Kernels use LIRCD_OPTS="-d /dev/hiddevX" cause the location has changed from /dev/usb/hiddev to /dev/hiddev

Upgrade to BIOS v2004 _or_ don't use the ports next to the audio jacks.

Warning:
But be aware: Even with BIOS v2004 as soon as a USB device sends a signal, the system will power on

Comment:
I connected my USB-Scanner to these port, shutdown the pc, diconnected the power from the scanner, as soon as I reattached the power to the scanner the system started. Other disturbin factor may be: The Powersupply and/or WOL


No hard disk recognized when booting from LiveCD

Set all controllers to Enhenced mode (AHCI) in the BIOS

Warning:
Be aware that if you installed windows with the controllers set to "Standard IDE" mode, windows will bail out with a blue screen if you switch to AHCI mode. (copy the ICH7 drivers on an floppy and reinstall windows)

Comment:
Does anybody know why the LiveCD behaves like this?

Fancontroling worsk like a charm with pwmconfig and fancontrol
Does anyone know where the temperature on the line "AUX Temp" is read from.
For me it shows:
Sys Temp: +48°C
CPU Temp: +31.5°C
AUX Temp: +127.0°C (whatever AUX Temp is.... if anyone knows, let me (us) know)

To get a more reliable CPU-Coretemp use the kernel Intel Core (2) Duo/Solo temperature sensor



Some more issues taken from http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=110193

FSB Wall at low fsb around 300 - Disable Hyperpath 3 in the Chipset section of the bios. [Credit - lawrywild]

Quote:Originally Posted by cmthomson
The issue is that the P5W DH normally overclocks the 975X NB by changing its strapping from 1066 to 800. This gives better benchmarks at stock speeds, but limits the FSB speed. This feature is controlled by the "Hyper Path 3" BIOS switch; disabling this forces the 1066 strap and allows much higher FSB speeds without overvolting the NB.

FSB Wall at around 360-370 fsb - Enable SPD timings option in Chipset section of bios.

Extremely slow POST - Disable everything to do with fans in "Hardware Monitor". [Credit - OBR]

POST lock up during Detecting IDE Devices - Restart and plug in some USB storage OR change SATA harddrive to other header. [Credit - OPB]

VCore only option Auto - EITHER Flash using AFUDOS and the tags AFUDOS /i****.rom /pbnc /n , then clear cmos as the manual describes [Credit - OPB] OR Disable Speedstep and Enhanced C1 Control in the Cpu Configuration section of the BIOS. [Credit - DjLeco]

Slow POST (SATA Only Users) - If you're running all SATA drives (Optical and HDD) .. and are getting slow boot times mark the IDE ports and "not installed" in the bios .. saves you the 30sec detection time for each drive. [Credit - Silver Bullet]

Random 256C cpu temperature bug - Not really a fix but usuallyonly happens when running CPU-Z.

USB devices don't power off after shutdown - A standard feature of ASUS motherboards.

Motherboard cold boots when you restart - Seems to be a standard feature in the motherboard although it doesn't seem to do it at stock.

Quote:NOW FIXED IN BIOS 1503

BIOS seems to hang when entering Monitoring section - No fix.

Keyboard connected via a USB Hub. When system is shut down pressing the keyboard starts the PC. - No fix as of yet, Disabled PS2 Keyboard Startup does nothing to stop this.

Network Disconnecting - Upgrade Marvell Yukon NIC to latest driver; http://www.marvell.com/drivers/drive...?dId=116&pId=3 [Credit - BulldogPO]

CPU Fan Error upon POST when cpu fan is not connected to onboard header - Set cpu fan to Ignore in Hardware Monitoring section of BIOS.

Remote Control will only shutdown board and does not power it up - Enable "Power on after Power loss" option in the ASUS DH Remote control panel in windows. Also make sure the USB receiver is connected to USB Ports 3 or 4.

Blue Screen Of Death when installing Win XP SP2 - Disable 1394 (Firewire) and Jmicron controller from within BIOS.

Antec NeoHE Power Supply Units - Buy something decent.

Probe 2 and SpeedFan start reporting the CPU temperature as 128C. This goes away after a while. In this state, Probe alternates between 128 and 256, and Speedfan stays at 128. - Try Everest Ultimate Edition or use Core Temp (see notes below).

Silent CPU Fan Profile won't work in BIOS when Vcore is above Auto - Try setting to Optimal Fan Profile, worked for me..

See ebuild for it working with kernel 2.6.19. Unfortunately, kernel 2.6.20 requires yet more changes, so with 2.6.20_rc7 I've gone back to using ndiswrapper.

Edit: Use ebuild for rtl-wifi

Thx for the reply, but as I dont need it right now, I'll wait until it will make its way into the Kernel, will it?
Or until there are gentoo 2.6.20 sources with a patched ebuild for the WiFI available :-)

Would love to skip back to gentoo sources from vanilla sources.

Thanks and best regards

I actually don't know if ASUS wants me to make this public, but there was no README, or any other privacy note in the Mail they send me, so I guess it's O.K.

You can download the latest BIOS v2001 from my server:

http://www.olausson.de/Asus_P5W-DH-Delux-BIOS_v.2001.rar

Have fun.

with the 2004 beta bios, most of my problems have now gone away (which I updated at the same time I pulled a pata hd, so that could be it too)

I use the default bios settings and just turn off the onboard sound and one onboard nic (the second one)

my main thing is that now opengl games are very jumpy, and not smooth at all.

running the latest vanilla sources kernel and grub

setup is

one sata 3gb/s hard drive (I think it is the red sata slot on the motherboard, but if i plug in a pata hard drive the sata drive shows up as third primary master in the bios)
one pata dvd burner (in the atapi ide slot)

core 2 duo e6600
p5wdh
evga geforce 8800gts superclocked (the 640mb version)
patriot extreme performance ddr2 800 ram
sb audigy 2 zs
thermaltake 700w power supply

and currently an old netgear pci network card while the sky2 is smoothed out.

The sky2 driver works for me as of kernel 2.6.21.
Now I can stream music without having to reset the NIC (rmmod, modprobe) after som time but I didn't stress test ist.

well, my motherboard died on friday, so its getting rma'd right now - i'll let you know if the new kernel fixes the sky2 for me (one of the things that died was the onboard nic, so that could have been the problem, not the sky2) -- i'll do some internal network load testing - like scp of a 40 Gigs file, that should be enough to test it.

I created a ebuild for 0.8.2_pre1 based on lirc-0.8.1
the pre1 includes a driver for asusdh.

http://olausson.name/temp/lirc-0.8.2_pre1.ebuild.tar.bz2

It compiles fine and I can start the deamon but it bails out with

root@freax $ lircd -n --driver asusdh
lircd-0.8.2pre1[27412]: you should specify a valid gap value
lircd-0.8.2pre1[27412]: lircd(asusdh) ready
lircd-0.8.2pre1[27412]: accepted new client on /dev/lircd
lircd-0.8.2pre1[27412]: initializing '/dev/usb/hiddev0'
lircd-0.8.2pre1[27412]: unable to open '/dev/usb/hiddev0'
lircd-0.8.2pre1[27412]: caught signal
Beendet

here's the config I use:

Okay, I enabled "raw HID device support" in the kernel, rebooted and than it worked!

Remove any options from /etc/conf.d/lircd
Quote:
# Options to pass to the lircd process
LIRCD_OPTS=""


so one more Hardware problem solved ;-)

I can't get the usb ir receiver to work. AT ALL.

What are the relevant kernel confs?

The ebuild builds fine, and kdelirc detects that lircd has started. But irw doesn't show any events, and i don't have a /dev/lirc/* file[s].

dmesg shows this:
hiddev96: USB HID v1.10 Device [T-wins ASUS DH Remote] on usb-0000:00:1d.7-7.2

lirc startes fine... But? Dunno. Any idea?

Whoops.. .Guess I found the error... :)

I had emerged both the new ebuild and the one that's standard in portage. It works like a charm now. :)

Sorry guys

Glad I could help...But did you have to create the node manually?

I love to controll amarok and amarokFS with my remote now.... jeah its just GREAT!!!!

This is the script I execute via kdelirc to start/stop amarokFS

Quote:
#!/bin/sh
if pidof amarokFS;
then
dcop --all-users --all-sessions amarokFS-$(pidof amarokFS) MainApplication-Interface q
else
amarokFS
fi

(thanks to eliasp)

No i didn't had to create anything. :)

I just tweaked your script a little, and added my own:

Monitorswitch:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
MONITOR=`xset q|grep -c "Monitor is On" `
if [ $MONITOR -ge 1 ]; then
    xset dpms force off
    amarokfsswitch 0
else
    xset dpms force on
    xset s reset
    amarokfsswitch 1
fi


amarokfsswitch:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
if [ -z $1 ]; then
    if pidof amarokFS; then
   dcop amarokFS-$(pidof amarokFS) MainApplication-Interface quit
    else
   amarokFS
    fi
else
    if [ $1 -eq 0 ];then
   if pidof amarokFS; then
       dcop amarokFS-$(pidof amarokFS) MainApplication-Interface quit
   fi
   exit 1
    fi
   
    if [ $1 -eq 1 ];then
   amarokFS
   exit 1
    fi

fi

Now I can turn on/off the monitor, and use the app launch to switch between desktop and amarokFS :)

The driver works, but did you get wpa_supplicant to wirk with it?

I tried the -Dwext, -Datmel and Dmadwifi. Neither do work for secured networks.
With -Dmadwifi it gets associate with my AP but disconnects after a few seconds. With the other two it does not even try to connect.

I can connect to non secured APs but I cant connect to my WPA-PSK(TKIP) protected AP.

Any ideas?

I haven't tried WPA. Only thing I can think of is did you remember to: modprobe ieee80211_crypt_tkip-rtl

I loaded every module the ebuild provided (except the r8180)

I guess there is no driver for wpa_supplicant at the moment?

[EDIT]
Okay, was my fault, the signal was to weak to reach the WPA secured spot ;-)

After experimentation, the best performance is achieved in Doom3 with the P5W's built-in audio, by having this line in /etc/modules.d/alsa
Code:
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1 position_fix=2 model=6stack-dig

enable_msi=1 means that the audio card does not need one of the few normal interrupts - cat /proc/interrupts

position_fix=2 gives the best performance in Doom3, reducing framerate jerkiness.

model=6stack-dig is the correct model. Is automatically identified anyway, but might as well specify it.

Don't forget to run update-modules after editing that file, to repopulate /etc/modprobe.conf

Sounds interesting!

But wondering how to apply these settings when the driver is vompiled into the kernel?

Anyway, I'll try these settings. (recompiling my kernel with hda_intel als module)

Thanks for the post
