Zonbu /proc/cpuinfo and other geeky stuff…

Via C7 ProcessorI’ve had some requests for the contents of /proc/cpuinfo as well as kernel info and a few other things.

You can find the results after the jump…


Let’s have a look at the CPU:

pcor@localhost / $ cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor : 0
vendor_id : CentaurHauls
cpu family : 6
model : 10
model name : VIA Esther processor 1200MHz
stepping : 9
cpu MHz : 1197.214
cache size : 128 KB
fdiv_bug : no
hlt_bug : no
f00f_bug : no
coma_bug : no
fpu : yes
fpu_exception : yes
cpuid level : 1
wp : yes
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge cmov pat clflush acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 tm nx up pni est tm2 rng rng_en ace ace_en
bogomips : 2395.78

And the kernel info:

pcor@localhost / $ uname -a
Linux localhost 2.6.17-ck1 #1 PREEMPT Thu Jul 19 20:53:48 EDT 2007 i686 VIA Esther processor 1200MHz CentaurHauls GNU/Linux

They seem to have hidden the kernel from the user space, so I can’t easily give you the size on disk of the current kernel.

Perhaps someone from Zonbu can officially offer that.

Now let’s take a peek at the hardware overall:

    I only see gibberish… thank god… I’m not *that* geeky after all!

  2. mykal says:

    it’s sad.. no pmm, phe or ace2.. maybe in newer kernel

  3. Gregg says:

    Aha! I was right that the Zonbu is using the CX700 chipset, not the common CN700 chipset that you find on all the standard VIA C7 mini-itx motherboards. This presents a big problem with your suggestion of Zonbu taking the lead with a VIA C7 customized distro.

    I would humbly suggest that the CN700/CX700 difference represents an environmental consideration, not a big problem. It just means there are two branches to consider and allow for.

    I think the basic idea is still sound, it just means a bit more work.

    I certainly hope that you’re right on this issue, and I’m wrong.

    mykal,

    Could you elaborate on what the pmm, phe and ace2 options would mean?

    Thanks,

    -Mr. Zonbu

    ACE2 states for Advanced Cryptographic Engine 2, PHE is Padlock Hash Engine, and PMM means Padlock Montgomery Multiplier. These are new CPU-integrated cryptographic engines/accelerators introduced in VIA Esther (C7) core, in addition to ACE and RNG (Random Number Generator) in older Nehemiah (C3). There are two possibilities – these functions are not present in the CPU, which is not likely, second one is they are not enabled in kernel. I am pretty sure there is a patch for 2.6.17 kernel enabling these features.

  8. mykhal says:

    mr. Zonbu, do you think you could paste output of “openssl engine” command ?

  9. mrzonbu says:

    Here you go mykhal:

    pcor@localhost / $ openssl engine
    (dynamic) Dynamic engine loading support

  10. mykhal says:

    thanks for info. At fully supported C7 system, the output would look something like:

    (dynamic) Dynamic engine loading support
    (padlock) VIA PadLock: RNG ACE2 PHE(8192) PMM

    and it would have also impact on secure SSL transfer rates (acceleration, few times faster)

  11. mrzonbu says:

    Ah, now I see what you are talking about:

    http://www.logix.cz/michal/devel/padlock/index.xp?show_selected=1&msgid=754

    I’m downloading PuppyLinux 2.17.1 at the moment, which has a relatively recent kernel. I’ll boot that and check the cpuinfo.

    So this makes encrypted web and ssh sessions faster?

    -Mr. Zonbu

  12. mykhal says:

    Good luck, but I’m not sure if those minidistros would have such rather rare features included.. probably openssl needs to be patched too. But doing so, it doubled my scp speed on C3 Eden based machine (I do not have Zonbu (yet))

    Do a kernel compile with HIGHMEM64G and you will get NX support.
