Hi All,

I compiled the new RC4 for the X5000 and X1000 today.

New:


Download: vmlinux-4.15-rc4-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

Screenshot of the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 with the new RC4 and with the new Firefox ESR 52.5.2 on an AmigaOne X5000:

BTW, I was able to install the new Firefox ESR 52.5.2 on the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 with the following commands:

Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i libhunspell-1.3-0_1.3.3-3_powerpc.deb


Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i firefox-esr_52.5.2esr-1~deb8u1_powerpc.deb


@Julian
Thanks for the hint.

Cheers,
Christian

Any wizard around capable of fixing the Soundblaster PCI card adressing issue.... viewtopic.php?f=58&t=3926

Not sure if its a Kernel thing... but with more than 4GB ram there are issues...

HAPPY NEW YEAR :-)

The RC6 with the QorIQ DPAA Ethernet driver: vmlinux-4.15-rc6-AmigaOne_X5000_with_QorIQ_DPAA_Ethernet_driver.tar.gz

I enabled the following options in the kernel config:

# common for arch/arm64 and arch/powerpc platforms
CONFIG_FSL_DPAA=y
CONFIG_FSL_FMAN=y
CONFIG_FSL_DPAA_ETH=y
CONFIG_FSL_XGMAC_MDIO=y

# for arch/powerpc only
CONFIG_FSL_PAMU=y

# common options needed for the PHYs used on the RDBs
CONFIG_VITESSE_PHY=y
CONFIG_REALTEK_PHY=y
CONFIG_AQUANTIA_PHY=y

In my point of view we need the Microchip PHY additionally because we have two Microchip KSZ9021RN PHY on the Cyrus board.

CONFIG_MICROCHIP_PHY=y

It seems the kernel has detected the QorIQ DPAA Ethernet but it can't get a mac address:
