Central Processing Unit (CPU)
The motherboard comes with a surface mount 939-pin Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) socket designed for the AMD Athlon 64/64FX or Sempron processor. The 128-bit-wide data paths of these processors can run applications faster than processors with only 32-bit or 64-bit wide data paths. Take note of the marked corner (with gold triangle) on the CPU. This mark should match a specific corner on the socket to ensure correct installation.
Vintage2-AE1 does not support dual-core processors.
Installling the CPU
To install a CPU: Locate the CPU socket on the motherboard.
CPU Socket 939
Unlock the socket by pressing the lever sideways, then lift it up to a 90-100 angle.
Make sure that the socket lever is lifted up to 90-100 angle, otherwise the CPU does not fit in completely.
Position the CPU above the socket such that the CPU corner with the gold triangle matches the socket corner with a small triangle. Carefully insert the CPU into the socket until it fits in place.
The CPU fits only in one correct orientation. DO NOT force the CPU into the socket to prevent bending the pins and damaging the CPU!
When the CPU is in place, push down the socket lever to secure the CPU. The lever clicks on the side tab to indicate that it is locked.
Installing the CPU fan and heatsink assembly
The AMD Athlon 64FX/64 or Sempron processor requires a specially designed CPU fan and heatsink assembly to ensure optimum thermal condition and performance.
Your boxed CPU heatsink and fan assembly should come with installation instructions for the CPU, heatsink, and the retention mechanism. If the instructions in this section do not match the CPU documentation, follow the latter. The retention module base is already installed on the motherboard. You do not have to remove the retention module base when installing the CPU or installing other motherboard components. If you purchased a separate CPU fan and heatsink assembly, make sure that a thermal interface material is properly applied to the CPU surface or the heatsink bottom before you install the CPU fan and heatsink assembly.

The only way that I can use the hd is using a 2.6.16 standard kernel with the modifications explained in this page . Basically you have to use their ahci.c and sata_via.c. The modifications are small from the original code from Mr Jeff Garzik. I have tried to use the 2.6.18 and 2.6.20rc6 and the result is the same. The kernel boots, but when arrives at the ata3, scsi2 : ahci ata3: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps Re: Sata_via problems in a Vintage2AE1 3

It might be VIA IRQ quirk problem. 1. Does giving 'irqpoll' parameter to kernel make any difference?
yes. Now it boots. However I'm having a lot of messages: APIC error on CPU0 and I begin to have problems with the network card.
2. Can you give a shot at 2.6.20?
yes, I'm doing it now. Thank's a lot. But, why with irqpoll works and without no?
well, I summarize. With the default options of the kernel I cannot boot in this device with any kernel. Only with 2.6.20 and the irqpoll or the Re: Sata_via problems in a Vintage2AE1 5
Re: Sata_via problems in a Vintage2AE1 2.6.16 modified files I can boot. I have a lot of APIC error on CPU0.
Maybe try booting with noapic and/or nolapic and see if it helps. That's probably just a workaround and not the right solution though.
It seems one of via pci routing quirk problem. Can you give a shot at 'acpi=off' or 'acpi=noirq' without 'irqpoll'? I dunno much about what's going on there. Alan, Jean, any ideas?
I've read the whole thread, the source code (quickly) and the patches to ahci.c and sata_via.c, and here are some comments: It looks like support for the VT8251 was added to the ahci driver in kernel 2.6.18, and was then updated in 2.6.20. The code is different from the patch Leopold is using with 2.6.16. As I am not an expert in this area, I can't tell whether both versions are equivalent or not, but I'd guess so. On the other hand, I do not see VT8251 support in the sata_via driver in the kernel, so I'm not surprised that it doesn't work properly for Leopold. But again I am no expert in the area, so maybe the sata_via driver in the kernel is supposed to work for VT8251based systems. Jeff (cc'd) should know better. I also see that there were many changes to these drivers post2.6.20, so maybe Leopold could give a try to Linus' latest kernel (2.6.20git6 as I speak) and see if there are any improvements. As for the VIA IRQ quirks, the version we have in 2.6.20 does not handle the VIA chips more recent than the VT8237A. If the VT8251 needs it, then we have to add it. Alan? *If* the VT8251 needs the VIA IRQ quirk, then the attached patch may help. Leopold, can you give it a try?
yes, of course. In some time I send the result. Thank's very much. Leo To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linuxkernel" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Re: Sata_via problems in a Vintage2AE1 6
