2.3.2.5 Firmware Update: Which Version?
#1
http://forums.deltatau.com/filedepot/

2.3.2.5

Readme.txt

powerpmac460ex ...... Power UMAC 460 CPU and Power Brick
powerpmac465 ........ Power UMAC/CPCI/Clipper 465 CPU
powerpmacARM ........ Power UMAC ARM (hardware not yet released)
powerpmacARM_Posix .. Omron uPower PMAC (CK3E Acontis EtherCAT)
powerpmacWIN_Posix .. Omron IPC Windows (NY51[]-A Acontis EtherCAT)
powerpmacX86_Posix .. Omron IPC Linux (Acontis EtherCAT)

When I send the cpu command I get the following report

PowerPC, APM86xxx

therefore I am not sure which firmware to use. Can anyone advise?

PowerPC, APM86xxx means it's a 465.

Just make sure it's a Clipper or a UMAC.

This is as good a spot as any to post this...you can follow the flow chart below to determine exactly what firmware is needed for a Power PMAC. There are other versions available (and heck, there's one in the chart) that has no currently available PMAC that would use that version. This does not include the IPC Firmwares, however.

Hello,
just stumbled onto this thread as I am looking into upgrading my firmware from 2.0.2.14 to the newest of 2.3.2.5 on my Powerbrick LV platform (command 'type' returns 'POWER PMAC BRICK').

I would just like to clear up something before proceeding:
When I send the query command 'cpu', I get 'PowerPC,APM86xxx' as a response. If I follow the flowchart, I should get the 'powerpmac465.zip' package.
But according to the flowchart, it says that the response 'Power PC, 460 EX' is the one corresponding to the Powerbrick LV hardware.

Should I still continue with the 'powerpmac465.zip' package?

Thanks in advance,
Christer

Christer, your PowerBrick has a 465. All of the 19" rack versions we built for the synchrotrons use 465s to avoid a problem with VLAN packets on Ethernet.

Thank you for that note, Tony. I forgot that most Bricks are 460 CPUs, however there are a number of them that are 465s. I just edited my post above to reflect that.
