Hi All,

Could you please test the RC4? Epsilon's X1000 can't boot the RC4. I successfully booted the RC4 with my X1000. PLEASE test the RC4.

Thanks,

Christian

Hi All,

I have recently released the RC4-2 because of the problems with some Radeon firmwares. I removed some firmwares for SI and newer graphics cards with the old format (upper case names). Many thanks to Mechanic and Spectre660 for the hints and explanations about the difference between the old and new Radeon firmwares.

Download: vmlinux-4.5-rc4-2-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

Please test the RC4-2.

Thanks in advance,

Christian

  • Linux Git log
  • PowerPC 4.5-3 fixes
  • Radeon DRM fixes
  • Installation initial ramdisk for the installation of ubuntu MATE 16.04 with the RC5 of kernel 4.5
  • N e w installation instructions for installing ubuntu MATE 16.04 with the new installation initial ramdisk
  • New Nemo patch 4.5-7

Download: vmlinux-4.5-rc5-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

N e w installation instructions for installing ubuntu MATE 16.04 with the new installation initial ramdisk:

Code: Select all
1. Copy the initrd "initrd-4.5-rc5-1.ubuntu16.04-ppc64.gz" and the kernel "vmlinux-4.5" to a USB pen drive or to the CF card

2. Turn on the AmigaONE X1000 and press F to boot to enter CFE prompt. Insert the USB pen drive.

3. You can boot the installer using the commands below:

3.1 From a USB pen drive:

CFE> ramdisk –z –addr=0x24000000 –fatfs usbdisk0:initrd-4.5-rc5-1.ubuntu16.04-ppc64.gz

From the CF card:

CFE> ramdisk –z –addr=0x24000000 –fatfs cf0:initrd-4.5-rc5-1.ubuntu16.04-ppc64.gz

3.2 CFE> setenv bootargs "root=/dev/ramdisk"

3.3 From a USB pen drive:

CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs usbdisk0:vmlinux-4.5

From the CF card:

CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-4.5

4. Select Language

5. Select Your Locatation

6. Detect Keyboard Layout. Select No and Pick from the list

7. Configure Network

8. Enter Hostname

9. Select the Ubuntu Archive Mirror Country - [it is configured for the UK]

10. Select the Ubuntu archive mirror "ports.ubuntu.com"

11. Leave the HTTP Proxy parameter blank

12. When prompted that no kernel modules were found select Yes to continue without loading them.

13. The installer components will be retrieved from the Ubuntu mirror [this will take a long time]

14. Enter your Full Name

15. Enter your username for your account

16. Enter your password and confirm

17. Select No to Encrypt your home directory

18. Confirm your time zone

19. When prompted for module dm-mod leave the parameter blank and select continue

20. Click Continue at the warning of "Software RAID not available"

21. Click Continue at the warning of "Logical Volume Manager not available"

22. You can now partition your disk

**** You must exercise caution when modifying your partition tables! ****

23. The base system will now be retrieved from the mirror site and installed

24. Select “Install security updates automatically"

25. At the software selection screen (Tasksel) you will be asked to select which *buntu flavour(s) you would like to install. You can install as many as you like. To install ubuntu MATE please select the following options:

Ubuntu desktop
Ubuntu MATE desktop
Ubuntu MATE minimal installation

Now press return to continue.

26. The additional packages required to install the full desktop will be retrieved and installed. - [this will take some time to complete depending on the speed of your internet connection]

27. At “Continue without boot loader” take note of your root partition.

28. Select Yes to set confirm the system clock is set as UTC.

29. Select Continue to finish the installation and reboot!

30. Press F to boot to enter CFE prompt. Remove if necessary and re-insert the USB pen drive containing the vmlinux-4.5 kernel. Enter the following commands replacing the root partition (sdb9) with the ID of the partition where you installed ubuntu MATE.

CFE> setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sdb9"

From a USB pen drive:

CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs usbdisk0:vmlinux-4.5

From the CF card:

CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-4.5

31. Later, you could copy the kernel vmlinux-4.5 to the CF card and configure a CFE menu entry.

CFE> setenv -p MENU_2_LABEL "ubuntu MATE 16.04 with kernel 4.5"
CFE> setenv -p MENU_2_COMMAND 'set pmu -astate=A4 ; setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sdb9 quiet ro splash" ; boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-4.5'

If X11 doesn't work after the installation then try zappa2009's xorg.conf files.

Download: http://www.xenosoft.de/X.org.conf.zip

Please rename xorg.conf.radeon to xorg.conf and then copy it to /etc/X11.

Good luck! :-)


PLEASE test the new installation instructions with the new installation initial ramdisk.

Cheers,

Christian
