No sign of 5I20 card.

Is it recognised?

Does the original servo demo still work? It found the card and ran...

That is the error message given after typing 'dmesg' right? There probably was another error message that would give us the clue we need.
did you run this from the command line (terminal) ? If so there was an error message and at the end it probably told you to look for more info by typing dmesg.
What did the original error message say?
BTW - [ 845.272325] rtapi: no version for "nano2count" found: kernel tainted is not a big deal.
when nano2count was made they forgot to add a line that tells the kernal the version.
it's not a real error - just a warning

PCW and CMORLEY,

Thanks for the interest and support.

The card seems to have failed as it is not responding to the previously functioning demo.
I am presenting You with three files:

A copy of previously functioning kernel response
a copy of current kernel response
and
a copy of EMC2 error response in the form of popup window generated when EMC2 has problems starting.

I have had a look at 5I20 documentation and the only thing other than a hard electronic fault that comes to mind is that the eprom whichaparently setsup PCI bus protocols has gone belly up.

It may be that a JTAG programer is required to restore the eprom content.

Regards

Zig

Its possible to re-program the EEPROM from the host side (no cables needed) but before going that far
you might try disabling the EEPROM and then seeing if the card shows up in lspci
(0x10B5,0x9030). The card will not operate in this state but it will use the bridge chips defaults
and should show up in lspci

If the card does not show up when the EEPROM is disabled, most likely either the card bridge chip has failed
or you have a PCI slot problem on your MB

majickally the IO bridge has returned:

00:08.0 Bridge: PLX Technology, Inc. PCI9030 32-bit 33MHz PCI <-> IOBus Bridge (rev 0a)


The next step is to restore the EEPROM contens.

Please instruct where to find the utility and the image to which to restore to.

Exstatically ( and without great delays more importantly)

If you have a corrupt EEPROM image its best to request an RMA and return the card
The reason I say this is that its likely you have a bad (leaky) EEPROM

To rule out dirty contact fingers on the PCI slot I would verify that you can install the card
with the EEPROM re-enabled, and disabled and verify that the card always disappears when the EEPROM is enabled

If you want to try reprogramming the EEPROM, its tricky but heres how:

1. You need DOS, the EEPROM programming utility is DOS only
2. You need to power up the card with the EEPROM disabled
3. Then, while powered up, you need to re-enable the EEPROM
( you will probably have to disconnect cables and re-arrange cards to reach the jumper)
4. Then you run the 5I20EED.BAT batch file from the 5I20 support distribution
(this batch file requires the 9030EEP.EXE executable)
5. A power cycle should reload the new EEPROM values

If you want to know where the EEPROM is bad you could try reading it by using the 9030EEP utility
before you run the batch file that re-writes it

PCW ,

Thanks for the advice ..it is much appreciated.

I would prefer to to try to get the card up and runing.
If i send it back to mesa for reprograming i am looking at three weeks delay.

I would prefer to see if it is possible to recover it locally.
