Yes I did and it worked - thank you. :-)

rc4 doesn't work for me still, but rc3 now works.

Re: (X)(L)ubuntu (MATE) 16.04 LTS

Hi All, As an update I worked out the error message problem. It seems that even though I entered the bootargs parameter into cfe it had a different entry already and wasn't overwriting it. I have sorted that, and linux boots to a point, but no x-windows loads up - just a flashing cursor in the top l...

Re: (X)(L)ubuntu (MATE) 16.04 LTS

Hi All, I have some good news for you. Stanglnator was able to install Ubuntu 16.04 with the RC3 of kernel 4.5 and the new installation initial ramdisk initrd-4.5-rc3-1.ubuntu16.04-ppc64.gz . He choosed the following software at the software selection screen (tasksel): - standard system utilities (...

Re: Ubuntu Mate 15.10

I change the boot args as you mentioned in CFE, copied the vmlinux-3.19 kernel to the CF card and when selected Linux booted straight (with an odd message about hard disk mounting which I saw previously too) to a terminal login - no X and no CTRL-ALT-F1 needed. Sorry Epsilon about these issues. Do ...

Re: Ubuntu Mate 15.10

Many thanks for testing! Could you please try the kernel 3.19? Download: vmlinux-3.19.0-KVM-PR-AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.bz2 For the kernel 3.19 you need Upstart and the rw boot argument. sudo apt-get install upstart-sysv setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sdb7 quiet ro splash rw" FYI I note that an extra dialog...

Re: Ubuntu Mate 15.10

Hi there, I followed the instructions for installing Ubuntu Mate 15.10 on the X1000 this week, using the 4.2 kernel as per the instructions. The installation does work, but like AlicePPC I also don't get a X-Windows GUI, just a black screen that flashes every few seconds. If I do the CTRL-ALT-F1 thi...

Re: X1000 boots to black with Radeon R9 270X and 2.7 driver

Hi All, Just to close this issue out (I hate leaving things unfinished), the X1000 was sent to the UK in April 2015 and eventually determined by Varisys to have a CPU issue. Because it is surface mounted on the X1000 it is not easily replaceable, with the repair cost approaching the cost of a new bo...

Re: X1000 boots to black with Radeon R9 270X and 2.7 driver

Hi All,

Quick update - today I have carefully packaged and shipped my X1000 board to AmigaKit to inspect. Hopefully the issue(s) identified are fixable - I look forward to being able to use it again soon.

Has been a week now of not being able to use my X1000 - definitely missing it!

Catcha,

Re: X1000 boots to black with Radeon R9 270X and 2.7 driver

@Epsilon I'd still not give up. Have you stripped the X down yet (down to one ram aswell)? You could try a battery change. You could even try to use another PSU (with a stripped system you could even try a weaker one, just for the sake of testing) I haven't given up. Again thanks to everyone who ha...

Re: X1000 boots to black with Radeon R9 270X and 2.7 driver

Nothing special, just switch jumper, like posted in the post before yours. You set it in rescue, then once in CFE, switch jumper and reflash. NEVER flash the rescue flash. Epsilons board will be fine, he just needs to see what serial is showing. Also using no GFX (set no video jumper) should solve ...
