Thanks to you for working so hard on supporting the x1k and to mechanic for the set up guidance. This past few days have been the most fun that I have had with my Amiga since AmigaOS development/releases stagnated.

Tinkering, hacking and new experiencs are where the fun lies. :)

Hi All,

I have recently released the RC1 of kernel 4.5. Many thanks for testing the alphas. We had 10 alphas in the past two weeks!!!!!!! But it was worth it. We were able to solve some issues.

Download: vmlinux-4.5-rc1-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

New:



It also includes:

  • KVM_BOOK3S_64_PR

    Support running guest kernels in virtual machines on processors without using hypervisor mode in the host, by running the guest in user mode (problem state) and emulating all privileged instructions and registers.
    This is not as fast as using hypervisor mode, but works on machines where hypervisor mode is not available or not usable, and can emulate processors that are different from the host processor, including emulating 32-bit processors on a 64-bit host.

  • Nemo patch 4.5-4 with the byte swap code for Radeon firmwares by Alex Deucher
  • Mac-on-Linux support
  • network support for AROS hosted
  • support for 4 serial ports
  • Bluetooth USB dongle support
  • kernel tracing with ftrace
  • ubuntu MATE 15.04, 15.10, and 16.04 LTS support
  • Debian 8 support
  • Btrfs support
  • systemd support
  • Wacom Intuos/Graphire tablet support (USB)
  • Support for the new interrupt handling
  • Boot by UUID or disk label with an initrd
  • Support for the Power Statistics tool
  • Linux kernel icon for OS4.1 by Tommysammy

PLEASE PLEASE test the RC1.

Have a nice week!

Rgds,

Christian

Sorry, I have bad news. Trevor tested the alpha10 of kernel 4.5 with his Radeon HD7750 and 7970 card and he could not get his Ubuntu HDD install to boot to the Desktop on his X1000. He will continue testing some other kernels.

My answer:

Trevor,

Thanks a lot for testing. Could you please test the following kernels?

- Longterm kernel 4.1.16: http://www.xenosoft.de/vmlinux-4.1.16-A ... 00.tar.bz2

- RC3 of kernel 4.4: http://www.xenosoft.de/vmlinux-4.4-rc3- ... 00.tar.bz2

- vmlinux-4.5-a9-firmware-nonfree_0.44 (old firmware package without the byte swap code) and vmlinux-4.5-a9-firmware-amd-graphics_20151018-2 (new firmware package without the byte swap code): http://www.xenosoft.de/vmlinux-4.5-alph ... 000.tar.gz

Please send us a serial log. You need "console=ttyS0,115200" in your boot arguments.

For example: setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sdb1 console=ttyS0,115200"


By the way, ddni successfully tested the new longterm kernel 4.1.16 with his R9 270x yesterday. (see screenshot as email attachment)


Thanks in advance,

Christian

Just for info:

The drm-fixes-4.5 were included in the official Linux kernel source code two days ago. That means we don't need the byte swap code for Radeon firmwares in the Nemo patch anymore.

Excellent, thanks for this!

RC2 seems ok on my X1000 with R9 270x ;)
Any HW graphics acceleration in this?

My pleasure! Many thanks for testing! Unfortunately there isn't any hardware 3D acceleration available for your graphics card.
