The Shuttle STK62K is a small XPC that use:
- ATI IGP9100 video board
- ATI IXP150 AC’97 Audio Controller
- OHCI based USB 2
- Realtek network card
As i run into different issue with that box, i decided to write a little howto. Look here for more infos

Caution, i run into weird issues at the first boot.. a lot of segfaults and other weird things. I spend a part of the night to discover that the main trouble isn’t Linux based, but a hardware issue. The ST62K seems to have a lot problems with cheap memory. My current install use two Elixir (CAS=3) 512Mo stick in dual channel. After a little test with memtest+ i discover that the memory should be downsized to 266MHz FSB (instead of the common 400FSB). I found severall other users with the same issue. So don’t expect to use a DDR400 at full speed on this box with cheap memory, or buy Corsair (CAS=2.5 not the CAS=3!).
I tried several kernels: 2.4.26 and 2.6.7 debian stock kernel, but i run into trouble with this meanly because the APM is set by default in .. so to run it i need to build kernel 2.6.7 from scrash.
My box run on a Intel 3.0C running at 3.2Ghz as this box support overclocking form +0 to +15 FSB, so (200 + 10) * 15 = 3.2 Ghz, i managed to overclock it to 3.3 without any trouble. In the kernel i set:
[*] Symmetric multi-processing support [*] SMT (Hyperthreading) scheduler support
SMT is the new scheduler that support the HT processors
The main reason why i start with ACPI, is that the box do some really strange things if you have APM set. So you need to disable the APM, and set the ACPI in you kernel.
[*] ACPI Support [*] Sleep States (EXPERIMENTAL) <M> AC Adapter <M> Battery <M> Button <M> Fan <M> Processor <M> Thermal Zone
The Thermal Zone is the only import here.
The ST62K use a Realtek nic, so just use the 8139too driver.
Recent kernel as support for ATI IXP chipset so ..
Device Driver > ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support <*> Generic PCI IDE Chipset Support [*] Generic PCI bus-master DMA support [*] Use PCI DMA by default when available <*> ATI IXP chipset IDE support
The embeded video card is IGP 9100. To have support for X you have 3 options:
- use the ‘ati’ driver wich come with XFree. It’s works fine (without acceleration)
- use the ‘radeon’ one, but this require a some kernel tweak
- the ATI made drivers doesn’t seems to support the IGP card right now.
I now run the radeon on. To do this you have 2 options:
- use the stock kernel one
- use the DRI based one
Devices Drivers > Graphics support <*> ATI Radeon display support
Don’t use module if you want to have framebuffer support. You need to enable AGPGart too (i’m not really sure)
Section "Device" #Driver "ati" Driver "radeon" VendorName "ATI Technologies Inc" BoardName "Unknown Board" BusID "PCI:1:5:0" EndSection
First you need to download the latest XFree86 binary (which is 4.3.99) and put this in the place of XFree binary. Next download the Radeon driver from the DRI website. Simply untar and install it. (You need to set the kernel drivers as module not built-in for that)
Which One ?
Right now, this doesn’t really change anything because the kernel base kernel doesn’t support DRI. And the DRI one, disable the DRI because it doesn’t find it as a AGP card, so disable the direct rendering. So don’t expect good openGL performance :( But the radeon driver is really punchy on X .. so as i don’t play game, this isn’t a issue. I think this gonna change soon anyway.
update: TV Output
For the TVout put, there is currently no options. The only way to have it works, is to configure the X server to use a vesa driver (instead of radeon) and 800×600 screen size. After that, plug the TV set and reboot to enable it. (Done thought the bios post), and enjoy. Thanks Per for the tips.
Again only recent kernel support this :)

After simply load the ‘snd_atiixp’ module
I read a couple of post saying that the sensors doesn’t work, but i managed to use it without any trouble, as it use a it87 isa based sensors.
I2C > Hardware Sensors Chip support <M> ITE IT87xx and compatibles
Don’t forget to set i2c-dev Results:
it87-isa-0228 Adapter: ISA adapter VCore 1: +1.45 V (min = +1.42 V, max = +1.56 V) VCore 2: +1.53 V (min = +2.40 V, max = +2.60 V) ALARM +3.3V: +6.40 V (min = +3.12 V, max = +3.44 V) ALARM +5V: +4.97 V (min = +4.72 V, max = +5.24 V) +12V: +11.68 V (min = +11.36 V, max = +12.60 V) -12V: -19.77 V (min = -12.63 V, max = -11.41 V) ALARM -5V: -2.38 V (min = -5.28 V, max = -4.81 V) ALARM Stdby: +5.02 V (min = +4.72 V, max = +5.24 V) VBat: +3.16 V fan1: 1795 RPM (min = 0 RPM, div = 16) fan2: 0 RPM (min = 332 RPM, div = 16) fan3: 0 RPM (min = 664 RPM, div = 8) M/B Temp: +60°C (low = +15°C, high = +40°C) sensor = diode CPU Temp: +44°C (low = +15°C, high = +45°C) sensor = diode Temp3: +41°C (low = +15°C, high = +45°C) sensor = thermistor
Some voltages seems wrong .. but not important. Yes this box have only one fan and the CPU temp is 44°. The 60° correspond to the RS300 chip but this seems to be broken (the bios show me the same values..). When overclocked and building the kernel, i managed to have 59° and a fan at 2300 RPM. (I tweaked the bios to start the fan at 55° instead of 65° default)
You can download my kernel config. I think this setting can be used on S62G4 too ..
