1 Replies and 1533 Views 3.5-qvga-10 Display problem with DirectFB  1533  1 Started by  dkudlay I am running into a strange issue when running my GTKDirectFB app. The screen is offset high by about 10 pixels and the colors are washed out. If I terminate the app, the frame buffer image left on the screen looks correct however. I tried to adjust the screen position via software but it seems the bottom 10 pixels are not accesible. Has anyone ran into something similar

1 Replies and 1497 Views What exactly does LoLo setup?  1497  1 Started by  RossLeppard Hi, I've been trying to do some benchmarking on my LITEKIT and one issue I've run into is finding out exactly what is setup by LoLo (version 2.3.5 on my board) in terms of clockspeeds, cache, memory, interrupts etc. The code I'm running is some fairly simple calculations, quite floating point heavy and also with a lot of memory accesses and on the memory access especially I don't seem to be getting close to the sort of performance I would expect. My program is written in C and I'm using the G...

0 Replies and 1519 Views Addressing external devices with FAST_nCS - SOLVED!  1519  0 Started by  rbunce I'm having a problem getting FAST_nCS to work. According to the hardware specification, FAST_nCS is active when nCS4 is active, and address 23 is high, and the schematic logic confirms this behaviour. Even with the simplest possible code (below), running stand-alone under LoLo, FAST_nCS stays high. (The same thing happens under Linux.) Tracing the signals with a 'scope shows that nCS4 is going low when it should, but A23 never goes high. This gates off FAST_nCS and U31 pin 3 is always high. I've...

3 Replies and 1530 Views Input/output error when using /dev/dsp  1530  3 Started by  Deleted User Hi I receive a Input/output error when trying to play sound in any way (tested media players as well as cat to /dev/dsp). I've traced the error to the kernel driver for the PCM parts (snd_pcm_lib_write1() in sound/core/pcm_lib.c) where the code is waiting for a signal that never fires. My guess is that the signal is linked to an interrupt that never reach the driver. Something wierd: We had problems mounting the rootfs over nfs (1 out of 10 tries worked). If nfs was mounted with the tcp flag i...

9 Replies and 1438 Views request for LTIB V3 iso (Linux 2.6.19)  1438  9 Started by  tombrus My board still does not boot correctly with the Linux 2.6.22 kernel. I have indications that a 2.6.19 kernel can boot correctly, but I can not build it. I need the LTIB V3 iso but I can not find it on the Freescale site. All I see is the LTIB V5b iso which contains the 2.6.22 kernel. It would make me very happy if someone could mail that LTIB V3 iso to me: tombrus at gmail. Thanks, Tom

I'm using the sample application, LED_Flasher, that came with the board as a starting point and I've got my code working by just inserting it into the example. For the level of accuracy I need just running the code 100 times and toggling the LED and timing it by stop watch is fine for the moment. I've used the 'exec' LoLo command and ...
