USB/Lan Driver

description

The usb and lan needs to be fixed so we can use usb keyboard and mouse.

Deu to lack off time and lack off having a rasberry i couldn't fix the problem will try when i have it.

Is there anything I can do to assist with this? I know the possibilities are endless if we can get Windows running on a $35 computer (even if it's the embedded edition). I have access to Platform Builder and Visual Studio 2008 through my Dreamspark account.

the problem is as dough pointed out to me that the drivers are needed to be writen from the ground up.

I have tried to get to the drivers from the chip manufacter but their site uses a verry strage validation process deu to not having a linux mashine at hand and sutaintly not having theire plug-in or software runiing on a linux mashine i cant get trough.

the soc of the rasberry is the BCM2835 it uses a soft ip block from a Synopsys’ DesignWare library specfied on a rasberry risc os form as quoted from the forum The BCM2835 uses a soft IP block from Synopsys’ DesignWare library (DWC), specifically the block is called dwc_usb_2_0_hs_otg_subsystem-ahb_se (“USB 2.0 Hi-Speed OTG Controller Subsystem w/AHB Interface SE”).

The bigst problem is there is no public documentation for the specified combination used in the rasberry.

but as far as i know douglas booling was working on it.

maybe if you can write the drivers at the following link is the baisc linux coding for the otg and host controlling
https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/tree/rpi-patches/drivers/usb/host

my problem is i cantwrite drivers myself or i would have helped with it and tested it because from this point on i have a rasberry pi type b.

How could I go about getting the driver? What I am confused on is are we trying to get the main USB Host port in the processor working? Or are we trying to interface with an external chip (Which I assume is the case on the Raspberry Pi Model B). I have several linux machines and may be able to take a crack at the authentication system. If worse comes to worse, I might be able to reach out to broadcom through a friend (not 100% sure, so don't count on it).

no it isnt a separate chip its a subsystem of te the bcm2835 cpu its zelf that uses the ip_block from a synopsys designwire library

if you have an linux/unix pc you can try and get the otg librar package from synopsis
https://sso.synopsys.com/idp/Authn/UserPassword
you need to create an acount but to do so they usedan unix/linux based second way authentication methode i cant get past to get to the download

if you can get past it and create an acount and download the driver for teh specfied subsystem we need u have helped douglas and every one else who hopes for win ce on the rasberry

I sent out an email to a Synopsys representative in order to get an account. I'll update as soon as they respond. Looking forward to making Windows CE on the raspberry pi a reality!

Haven't heard back from Synopsys, but according to this forum: HERE it's not going to happen. I did, however, find this: TEXT

Sorry if I appear to be spamming you with so many messages. @sojab0on, what were you talking about with the Linux based login? I can't find it anywhere on the site.

sojab0on wrote Jul 18, 2014 at 10:05 AM

there is a point in the account creation where t=you need to give an active site id and the way to get it is trough a unix based command and some kind of software that needs to be running in an unix/linux based system.

if i was you i send douglas an email with the text you found i am not a driver programmers/writer so i can't do anything with it.
he was working an some driver but don't know how far he is.
may be with that text he can find a way for it to work
