Thanks guys, in the ASRock BIOS it is not obvious at all how to disable UEFI, and in fact, you can't with any menu choices that are decipherable if you don't already know.

Anyway, when you enable CSM compatability mode, UEFI is disabled automatically, and legacy BIOS operation begins. Then the boot menu gives the option to boot to the usbdvd without being tagged UEFI.

So Linuxcnc is up and running, now time to run some tests.

Hopefully the USB stick boot will work now as well, although I guess it won't matter once I install to the SSD.

Thanks again

Hello again:

Well I had a chance to run various latency tests without very good results. I've had to leave Portland and head to the SF bay area to take care of my Dad who is dealing with a failing body at 87. So after 12 hours of driving yesterday, I have unpacked my board and plan on trying to come up with a working configuration before I head home next week.

After researching and reading probably 30 different threads on which motherboard to buy, I found the ASRock J1900M,J1900B-ITX, and the J3355B-ITX to be recommended choices. I don't need the parallel port because of the Mesa cards installed, and I wasn't as concerned about fantastically low latency because of the cards and its a servo machine, so no software stepping to worry about.

While searching away to buy a J1900M, I found the J3355 for only $58 at Newegg. I figured to give it a go because of this comment from this thread on the CNCzone forum by PCW_MESA board member. The thread is discussing various MB for a project someone is working on...

"I have both Gigabyte and ASRock J1800 and J1900s plus a ASRock J3355 and I have not noticed any significant latency
difference between them. There really are no "magic" motherboards, especially with Preempt-RT. Most Motherboards will work
but there are occasional bad ones (and Laptops are often "bad" due to power management traps that cannot be disabled)"

So I purchased the J3355B-ITX figuring if it didn't work out, it would still make a dirt cheap desktop machine for the office or something.

My initial tests without turning anything off had 2.9 million or so ns latency. After this I tried various different settings in the BIOS. With everything I can find turned off, these are the BIOS settings...

BIOS settings:

CPU page

Both fans set to full speed
Intel Speedstep = disabled
CPU C states = disabled
Intel virtualization technology = disabled
VT-d = disabled
Power Gear = sport mode

Chipset Config:

Memory set to 1.5V 4GB Patriot 1333
Onboard graphics
Shared memory 512M
Audio disabled
LAN enabled
PCIe1 link speed auto
Deep S5 disabled

Super I/O config:

Serial ports disabled
Para port disabled

ACPI config:

Everything disabled except for- ACPI HNET Table is enabled

So far I have had only one stable configuration at about 700K ns. However, I can't remember which things were on or off at the time. With everything switched disabled I can think of as listed above, the latency shot back up to 2 million ns or more any time I resize a window or open a new tab, however, the numbers are great with just bunch of tasks running such as videos and multiple glxgears.

Anyone have any suggestions or have had success with this board?

I have a J3355B and it has about 100 usec worst case latency..
It may be that my boot options are different, you might try idle=poll,
and if that does not work, try some isolcpus options

Thanks,

I did some research on what idle=poll is and does and learned some interesting things.

I went ahead and tried idle=poll on boot and it made a significant improvement.

It will take a little figuring how to get my setup online at my dads house, and try youtube vids and such.. The house is set up for wireless and the routers aren't particularly convenient for hooking up my pile of parts. I'll figure something out, but in the meantime, I can run 4 instances of glxgears at under 100us, but on the fourth one, if I resize it, the latency jumps to 142us. However, I learned there are a few other tricks I can try on Intel based boards, so I'm going to try a couple of those now.

Thanks again

Karl

So after some more fiddling around, I think I found a good setup.

First, I checked to see if disabling the c states in BIOS was actually taking place...just to be sure. And indeed, the driver is not loading.

One thing I had noticed, was that glxgears would have a barely noticeable pause each revolution in the animation. Booting with idle=poll got rid of this, but resizing windows would cause the latency to skyrocket.

Adding both isolcpus=1 and idle=poll with the boot makes everything work much smoother, The animations remain smooth even while resizing.

With just idle=poll, the servo thread had good latency, but resizing, or opening other software would cause the base thread to shoot up into the 400us range while the servo thread remained at 140us or so.

With both isolcpus=1 and idle=poll the servo and base thread remain quite tight. With 8 glxgears instances in various window sizes and while being resized and moved around, give max servo jitter of 16.5us and base max jitter of 24.5us.

This would appear to be more than good enough for a +/- 10V signal to my servo drives, from what I have read anyway.

I haven't hooked to the internet yet to try vids and such, but then this computer will be installed in and enclosure and used for nothing except running the lathe, so I'm not sure how important it is to test more...I'm not planning on connecting the board to a network or internet, I'm fine loading programs with USB drive.

So next is to setup the 6I25.

Thanks

Hello:

I've made it home and hooked everything back up. While in Ca., I tried to try my hand at learning to create GUI interfaces, but didn't realize everything I was reading related to packages not available in the 2.7 distribution. Found myself very confused for awhile, and not able to find any of the files and folders. Finally realized that I could just go ahead and run the newer distribution and finally the widgits are available.

So I spent many hours since I got home tracing the circuits and wiring in the machine, so I can draw up a diagram for interfacing everything. The interface board in the machine, has a convenient 39 pin D-Sub which will allow for a tidy cable to the 7I77.

Interestingly, Omniturn spliced the encoder and tach wires when they extended the servo cables, in such a way, that it was an obvious attempt to make trouble shooting difficult for the owner. Swapping wire colors randomly even though the wire colors and count were the same.

I wired up a Sumtak Optcoder MPG that I salvaged many years ago, using the +5 and Ground from Encoder port 5 on the 7I77. I'm using encoders 0-2 for the x,z, and spindle. A/B of the optcoder are connected to inputs 16/17 and they are configured as MPG.

Only the MPG is connected and I'm trying to get to where I can see the count using HAL.

After completing many Pncconf configs, Linuxcnc always closes before launching. I'm assuming the reason is the line I marked in green and is always in the error message:

Debug file information:
Note: Using POSIX realtime
/Lathe_135.hal:10: Ini variable '[HMOT]CARD0.watchdog.timeout_ns' not found..
2625
Stopping realtime threads
Unloading hal components
RTAPI_PCI: Unmapped 65536 bytes at 0xb66fc000
Note: Using POSIX realtime


So I looked in the Hal .ini file and here is what I believe is the relevant line marked in green:

# Generated by PNCconf at Fri Oct 18 15:46:10 2019
# Using LinuxCNC version: UNAVAILABLE
# If you make changes to this file, they will be
# overwritten when you run PNCconf again

setp [HMOT]CARD0.watchdog.timeout_ns 5000000
loadrt pid names=pid.x,pid.z,pid.s
loadrt mux16 names=jogincr


Anyway, I'm running out of ideas and probably missing something simple. Anyone got any ideas or can help?
More than happy to provide more information if needed.

Thanks

Can you post your complete HAL and INI files?

The
setp [HMOT]CARD0.watchdog.timeout_ns 5000000
line looks weird/broken like pncconf did not make a proper name substitution

OK that card name and driver name are broken, What card do you have and what did you tell pncconf that you had?

Hello:

I have a PCIe 6I25 connected to a 7I77.

On the "Base Information page" of Pncconf, in the I/O Control Ports/Boards, I have the first choice selected: Mesa0 PCI/Etho/Parport Card and "none" selected on the third line.

On the "Mesa Card 0" setup page...for board name, I selected 5i25-Internal Data
Firmware: 7i77x2 With One 7i77.

Thank you for your prompt responses, I would really like to move forward on this while I have the time.

Karl
