Here is some suggestions and attempts about the "clock matter" of eSDK:

With you may be I woukd suggest, if still not yet attempted, to make eLink cluster / matrix working with the old ubuntu, then what about to try recompiling the last ubuntu img including the old eSDK that made eLink cluster working as it was done now with your work?


Hi, Claudio.

I tried recompiling the old eSDK under parabuntu 18.04, but I had lots of problems: Nick Lombard has got a lot further!
https://github.com/supercores/epiphany-sdk/releases

I tried, trivially, to use the last ubuntu 2016.11.1 simply putting the old eSDK 2015.1 into /opt/adapteva and it didn't work.


I tried that too, but it didn't work so I tried recompiling it from source: Please read Nick's posts about it on GitHub:
https://github.com/parallella/parabuntu/issues/19

Would you let me collect all the suggestion I received to work on it ? I can get all them from the threads and publish again here.


Yes, I think it would be very useful to collate all the information and post a summary on the "supercores" project:
https://github.com/supercores

My cluster now does work with 64 cores and I can use it for my project.
I'd like to run the slaves epiphany at boot, in a way they are ready to work in matrix.
Then acting only with the Master board and Master Epiphany to load all the task, synchronize and getting the results.
Better if it will work with hdmi and last ubuntu release.


I think it is a mistake to use a non-LTS Ubuntu release, which is why I'm working on 18.04.

My best, yet still really interested in Parallella experiments.
Nvidia (xavier I have) doesn't permitt to load different tasks for each core.


Thanks, it's encouraging to see a flicker of life left in the Parallella community :-)

Tony.

The limit is to have a NON-HDMI FPGA setting for this release.
