Hi All,

Here is the RC3-2 of kernel 5.3 for testing.

New:


It also includes:

  • Initial ramdisks for the X5000 and X1000. Instructions for creating an initial ramdisk: forum.hyperion-entertainment.com
  • X1000: pcmcia-v3 patch for solving the issues with new CF cards connected to the onboard CompactFlash Card Slot
  • X1000: Enabled the kernel config options CONFIG_PATA_PCMCIA, CONFIG_PCMCIA, and CONFIG_ELECTRA_CF for the pcmcia-v3 patch
  • X1000: compressed kernel (zImage) and uncompressed kernel (vmlinux)

Download: linux-image-5.3-rc3-2-X1000_X5000.tar.gz

@SailorMH
Please test the kernel with your CF cards.

@Allan (Ace)
Please test the kernel with your ATI FirePro 2260. Please also test it with your Logitech USB wireless mouse because of the HID fixes.

@Mechanic
Please test the kernel with your JMB363 card.

@Darren
Could you please submit your new pcmcia patch to the kernel developers?

Thanks,
Christian

Hi Skateman,

Many thanks for testing the RC3-2! :-) Have you really noticed the optimization of the preemptible kernel? I am not sure but I have the feeling that it works a little bit faster if I work with typical desktop applications. It can also be an illusion that it works faster.

Cheers,
Christian

Hi Allan,

Great news! :-) Could you please tell Hans that it works with the latest HID fixes?

Thanks,
Christian

Hey Christian,
When is the next long-term support kernel? I want to include it in the next Fienix release. I'm excited about the preemptible kernel config!

Casey,

The stable kernel 4.20 has reached EOL. Please use the stable longterm kernel 4.19 for Fienix instead.

Thanks,
