Hi Andrew,



I found and fixed a few issues in the dec21x40End.c driver for vxWorks 5.5.x in 2009. The main one was to make DMA underflow a recoverable event (which might be relevant to this problem), but I also fixed the packet counting which wasn't working properly in this driver. I believe I sent Dave Thompson my fixes at the time, but whether they got into the SNS version or not I don't know.

Please send me your dec21x40End.c version. Mine is from 2005 and it is still missing proper packet counting.


On a related question, have you ever heard of an mv2100 BSP for vxWorks 6.x? I'm currently working on upgrading the mv2700 BSP from 6.4 to 6.8, but I can't find an mv2100 BSP for any 6.x OS version at the Wind River website.


It is almost impossible to get BSPs for old boards and new vxWorks versions or new boards and old vxWorks versions. It's a pain with WindRiver.


Does anyone have Linux BSPs for mv2300, mv5100 and mv6100? (But I do NOT want to switch from WindRiver vxWorks to WindRiver Linux!)

Has anyone used Xenomai on any of these boards?


Dirk
