Hi All,

I added the kernel option CONFIG_HIGHMEM to the Tabor kernel config today. This solved the issue with the RAM size. I also successfully modified the code for the power off support. Power off works again now! :-)

Please test the RC6 on the X1000, X5000 and A1222.

Hi All,

There was an issue with rebooting the Tabor board. I successfully modified the code for the reboot support. Now you can reboot the Tabor board without any problems.

Download: linux-image-5.3-rc6-3-A1222.tar.gz (including a new Tabor patch and kernel config)

BTW, I successfully tested Fienix on the Tabor board yesterday.

PLEASE PLEASE test the RC6 on the X1000, X5000 and A1222. It's very important, that you test the new kernels.

Thanks,
