Re: Starting Linux without unplugging Amiga drives

@DAZ U-boot can talk to other ports than the onboard sata ports i think. In the Uboot bootargs i specify the controller /dev/ I'm referring to loading the kernel i.e. the 'load sata 0 addr uImage' bit - the uImage must be on a drive U-Boot can read. The /dev/sdxx is passed to the kernel once it has...

Re: Starting Linux without unplugging Amiga drives

Hello, I installed Fienix on an SSD hard drive of my X5000 and am very satisfied. Currently, I have to plug either my Linux SSD directly to the motherboard or my two Amiga SSDs. I would have liked to use Linux and Amiga without having to disconnect and reconnect the corresponding disks, for example...

Re: Void Linux

Christian Have you heard of or tried this distro? https://voidlinux-ppc.org/ ace I had a quick look at this, I had a lot of trouble getting to to run the prep tools on the X5000, (no altivec, I think) I did get the installer ramdisk to start on my X1000, but I could never get it to find the compres...

Re: Kernel 5.7

Tested the RC6... Seems to work here, also shutdown. Only problem is that starting the onboard ethernet still needs the unplug/replug trick. Can you test this kernel: https://app.box.com/s/qlisrhml9flcvd7d9b0j0fagzlxhueet Should be basically the same as Christians current 5.9 (I didn't include modu...

Re: Kernel 5.7

Hi Darren, I successfully tested the RC3-2 and the new cyrus-p5040.dtb with Fienix Soar 3.0-20200426 on my X5000/40 today. Results: power-off and restart are working! We don't need the cyrus patch anymore!!!!!! :-) The hard disk LED works! Great! The DPAA Ethernet works after a replug of the networ...

Re: Kernel 5.7

FYI: [RFC PATCH dpss_eth] Don't initialise ports with no PHY Don't use this, it's already in the kernel, I didn't test properly. You need new dtb files with inactive ports disabled: I have some for you to test: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nNNS8_rjT20jrWI-_m-GSvqAqym85nwp There are dtb's for b...

Re: Test request to all X5000 owners!

Thanks for that, Darren. I've never heard it before, so maybe it was only mentioned in the Linux part of the world. Now, the next question: how the hell do we program the EEPROM with the missing values? I do wish we had some proper hardware documentation... There are two options.... The mac command...

Re: Kernel 5.6

Skateman, Could you please test the RC4-2 with the DPAA Ethernet as well? Thanks, Christian RC4-2 Tested and broke the DPAA Ethernet functionality. The adapter does not get an IP address. Seems like link negotiation is not working. Reverted back to RC4 and posting this with a working DPAA Ethernet ...
