FYI:

Hardware 3D works only with a supported RadeonHD 4xxx 5xxx & 6xxx gfx cards. The Radeon R7 250X (7770 <-> R7 250X Verde/TAHITI_uvd) works only with the kernel 4.0 and higher currently. There was a bug in some earlier kernel versions: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1386973. The A-EON Live Remix DVD boots with a 3.13 LTS kernel. Therefore it doesn't work in the live mode because of the bug above. But the Ubuntu developers have created a fix and maybe they integrate it in the 3.13 LTS kernel.

status: Fix Committed → Fix Released
tags: removed: kernel-bug-break-fix


But they haven't applied this fix to the 3.13 LTS kernel yet. I'll release the kernel 3.13.19 after the 4.1 release. I hope this fix is included then.

I've asked the Ubuntu developers if they have applied this fix to the 3.13 LTS kernel yet.

Hi All,

Thank you very much for fixing this bug. Have you applied this fix to
the 3.13 LTS kernel yet? If not, could you apply this fix to the LTS
kernel 3.13, please?

Kernel 3.13:
http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/ca ... rce-3.13.0

Thanks in advance.

Christian

Hi All,

According to Federico Tello Gentile, the bug with the R7 250X has been fixed.

I've created a new 3.13 LTS kernel and I hope you can boot the A-EON Live Remix DVD with a Radeon R7 250X. Please test the kernel 3.13.19.

Download: kernel-3.13.19-1-x1000-ubuntu-ppc64.tar.bz2

Hi All,

I have great news for you! :-)

I was able to compile Arctic Fox 27.9.15 on Lubuntu 12.04.5 LTS PowerPC today. I had to add the GCC 4.8 and the libatomic1 via the repository 'ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test'. Normally it isn't possible to compile Arctic Fox on Ubuntu 12.04.X. I successfully tested it on an installed Lubuntu 12.04.5 LTS PowerPC and on a Lubuntu 12.04.0 PowerPC live DVD.

Download: arcticfox-27.9.15-ubuntu12.04-powerpc.tar.bz2

Additionally you need the libatomic1 package.

Download: libatomic-ubuntu12.04-powerpc.tar.bz2

Please copy the file 'libatomic.so.1' to '/usr/lib/powerpc-linux-gnu/' with the following command:

Code: Select all
sudo cp libatomic.so.1 /usr/lib/powerpc-linux-gnu/


After that you can start Arctic Fox with:

Code: Select all
./arcticfox

BTW, it works on the old A-EON Ubuntu Live Remix DVD for the AmigaOne X1000 too.

Cheers,
Christian

Hi All,

I released the new Arctic Fox 27.9.16 for older Linux PPC distributions like Ubuntu 10.04 LTS or higher today.

Download: arcticfox-27.9.16-ubuntu10.04-powerpc.tar.bz2

For Ubuntu 12.04 and the A-EON Ubuntu Live Remix DVD: You need to install the GCC 4.8 and the libatomic1 via the repository 'ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test'.

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install gcc-4.8 g++-4.8


Sometimes you need only the libatomic1 package.

Download: libatomic-ubuntu12.04-powerpc.tar.bz2

Please copy the file 'libatomic.so.1' to '/usr/lib/powerpc-linux-gnu/' with the following command:

Code: Select all
sudo cp libatomic.so.1 /usr/lib/powerpc-linux-gnu/


Screenshot of the new Arctic Fox 27.9.16 on the Lubuntu 12.04 PowerPC live DVD:
