Kernel 5.4

Postby xeno74 » Wed Sep 18, 2019 4:38 pm

Hi All,

The Linux 5.4 kernel merge window is open for merging. Linus Torvalds has added a lot of new source code to the Linux Git.

Here is the first alpha of kernel 5.4 for the X1000, X5000, and A1222.

New:


Download: linux-image-5.4-alpha1-X1000_X5000_A1222.tar.gz

Please test the kernels.

Thanks,

Thanks a lot for testing the alpha1 of kernel 5.4! :-) Good to know that the MATE-Terminal works with new kernels.

Hi All,

I released the second alpha of kernel 5.4 for the X1000, X5000, and A1222 today.

New:


Download: linux-image-5.4-alpha2-X1000_X5000_A1222.tar.gz

Unfortunately it doesn't boot with my Radeon Northern Islands graphics cards anymore. I tested it with a Radeon HD6870 and with a Radeon HD4870.

The kernel boots with a Radeon SI graphics card. (R7 240)

I reverted the latest DRM updates and after that the kernel boots with my Radeon HD6870 and with my Radeon HD4870 without any problems. If you have the same issue please test the kernels from the following package.

Download: linux-image-5.4-alpha2-X1000_X5000_without_DRM_updates--2019-09-18.tar.gz

I reported this issue on the mesa-dev mailing list today.

Screenshot of Debian 10 PowerPCSPE with the second alpha of kernel 5.4:

Please test the kernels.

Thanks,
Christian

Hi All,

I created a bug report because of the boot problem with Radeon NI graphics cards today.

Hi All,

The changes of the following files are responsible for the boot issue.

  • drivers/gpu/drm/drm_*
  • include/drm/*

The kernel doesn't boot with the updates in the files above from the drm-next-2019-09-18.

I updated the bug report "Bug 111761 - Latest Git Kernel doesn’t boot with Radeon NI with the drm-next-2019-09-18 updates" today.

PLEASE test the alpha2 with your Radeon SI graphics card.

Thanks,
Christian

I created a patch today. This patch reverts the changes in the following files.

  • drivers/gpu/drm/drm_*
  • include/drm/*

It also reverts all files which depends on these files above.

Now I can boot the latest Git kernel with my Radeon HD NI graphics cards again.

5.4-aplha 2 does not boot to either Firepro nor SI card.

5.4-alpha 2 without DRM boots fine to Firepro and Logitech mouse is still working-:)
Keep up the great work.
