SOLVED How to upgrade from 2.05.1 to 3.1.1?


  • Moderator

    @dc42 is away on vacation until next week, but I'm sure he'll find this interesting.



  • @bearer, I think you are right. The code actually says that RRF2 and RRF3 are different in their handling of the stop command:

    // We send M112 for the benefit of old firmware, and F0 0F (an invalid UTF8 sequence) for new firmware
    SerialIo::SendString("M112 ;" "\xF0" "\x0F" "\n")
    

    https://github.com/Duet3D/PanelDueFirmware/blob/master/src/UserInterface.cpp#L1674



  • i did get the sense when dc42 commented the 0xf0 0x0f thing that new firmware also included newer rrf2 but couldn't find any refrence to it

    but its odd that duet3 people have been using paneldue since the first rrf3 with no similar reports, so there might be more to it (or they never pressed the stop button).

    on the other hand there isn't any reason the paneldue should transmit anything between 0xf0 0x0f and 0x0a (0x0a being the newline)?

    (edit I have a 4.3 regular paneldue and a 7i here - I was hoping to log the same data from, but looks like a case for tomorrow. but should at least be able to confirm if those behave the same)

    Thanks @bearer. Looking forward for your findings.

    Its the checksum thats before the newline

    So the bad command would change with the line number and checksum presumably.

    I.e. the issue is with RRF3



  • Yeah, its definitively the Duet reacting to the rx buffer after 0x70 0x07 and ending up parsing it as a bad command.

    If you increase the baud rate you get one less digit, and if you decrease the baud raute you get the asterisk plus the digits as well, i was hoping the asterisk would get the parser to see it as checksum and discard it, but no.

    Poked around a bit, but didn't find where the 0x70 0x07 is handled, it seems M112 is clearing out the rx buffer as part of the estop. Id test flushing SERIAL_AUX_DEVICE rx buffer as its initialized but messed up the build env somehow.

    It'd be interesting to see one of the Duet3 users with PanelDue tap the stop button and see if they get the same error. Is searching for M575 P1 B57600 S1 and tagging everyone who didn't read the upgrade notes bad form?:P

    Yes, this is what I experienced, different code numbers in the error messages.

    Can you explain? I am using Duet2 wifi with 57600 baud to the PanelDue. Were there upgrade notes to change the baud rate?



  • @zapta said in How to upgrade from 2.05.1 to 3.1.1?:

    Can you explain?

    sorry, just a bad joke - there was a buttload of people posting something like "oh my god my paneldue stopped working" after upgrading to 3.1.1 ... figured one of them could test estop on the duet3 ... so most recent posts containing M575 would be one of those.

    Anyways, back on topic - is there an signal we can analyze to indicate the actual reset? curious if the bad command comes before or after the duet being reset.

                       < {"seq":4,"resp":"Error: Bad command: 192\n"}

    looks like it might be before, or it gets reset again by M999?



  • @bearer said in How to upgrade from 2.05.1 to 3.1.1?:

    Maybe one of the outputs that are turned off on reset? Heaters, PS_ON, etc? I don't know thought what is the delay added by the power mosfets so maybe the signal before the mosfet driver.

    BTW, what logic analyzer are you using? I am using an 8 bit saleae which is good enough for the rare occasions I need it but its software is not great.



  • Maybe one of the outputs that are turned off on reset?

    I tried a few different ones, was just surprised by the spread; but it definitely looks like its the code that was supposed to clear the buffer that isn't doing it and the firmware has time to process the rest triggering a "Bad command" error before reset occurs.

    BTW, what logic analyzer are you using?

    I got a Pro8 from Saleae; and v1 software is junk but I'm quite happy with the v2 beta that they just did a survey asking if v2 was mature enough to replace v1. I said 95%, they're pretty good at bugfixing, but not quite superhero level like dc42.

    If you haven't tried the beta, then I'd give that a go, I've only seen two bugs that are just visual representation and as far as I can tell they were hunted down a while back.

    If you were wondering about the side by side serial representation then I did that by hand, but its quite easy with the Pro8 as it has the data terminal, I just added some spacing.

    Anyways, all the planets aligned and the mail man just dropped off my Hemera, and seconds later the UPS guy came with the power supply and 3-wire fans so stuff to do:)))

    I'm quite happy with the v2 beta...

    Thanks, I will give it a try. The serial analyzer dump of V2 seems to be easier to to understand.



  • @zapta said in How to upgrade from 2.05.1 to 3.1.1?:

    The serial analyzer dump of V2 seems to be easier to to understand.

    The "data terminal" shown is for some unkown reason reserved for the Pro8 and Pro16, but everything is easier to read and use in v2 imho.



  • @bearer, V2 looks nicer indeed and I was able to see the terminal widget even though the icon had a red 'pro' marking. Possibly they will cripple it once the stable version will be release. I could also see footprint for Analog functionality even though I don't have any.

    BTW, finding the problematic section in the graph is very easy. It's the only place where the duet sends a responds before the paneldue transmition completes.



  • Interesting, i'd squirrel away the installer in case they cripple it in a future version, seems odd to limit features like that. Big 👎 for Saleae if they do.

    Anyways, yes, can see where the Duet reacts with bad command (although i don't think mine overlapped like that it did when zoomed in), but whats not clear is when the reset occurs. I think reset occurs after the bad command

    Btw, right click the decoded bars above and you can choose just ascii to aid readability with non-binary protocols.



  • Since this thread is about a wider topic, I moved the STOP issue to a new thread https://forum.duet3d.com/topic/17990/rrf3-paneldue-stop-function-results-in-a-false-error-message



  • @bearer said in How to upgrade from 2.05.1 to 3.1.1?:

    Is checksum enabled by default?



  • @zapta said in How to upgrade from 2.05.1 to 3.1.1?:

    Is checksum enabled by default?

    afaik its always on and not configurable in the PanelDue, and checksums was default enabled in RRF until the PanelDue port was not enabled at all by default anymore as of 3.1-ish

    @dc42 seems to back in business so hopefully he'll take a look at why this is treated differently in RRF3. Its pretty clear the issue is RRF2 clears the RX buffer after receiving M112 or 0xf0 0x0f, while RRF3 does not clear the RX buffer.

    edit: ah, new thread might be cleaner. But I'd suggest replacing the pictures with one where the bad command matches the checksum on the logic analyzer - or maybe just annotating the difference.



  • My printer now run on RRF3 and everything looks good. Thanks everybody for the help.
