Sure. I'm using Sawfish with the Crux theme. The desktop environment is XFCE4.

Re: Gentoo X5000?

I haven't really compared the performance, all I can say for sure is that upgrading is slower since you have to compile everything yourself. :-)
The reason I use it is for the flexibility it brings.

Re: Gentoo X5000?

I'm using gentoo (64bit userland) on the X5000. I used to run 32bit userland with 64bit multilib on the X1000, but there were some packages (notably the "go" programming language) which did not work correctly so I switched on the X5000. There are quite a few packages that need local patches to work ...

Re: Using more than 3.5GB RAM

The problem with the 3.5GB RAM restriction has been fixed. :-) Cool! So you mean that we can have More than 4G RAM HW accelerated 3D PCI cards all at the same time? And it's 4.13 that makes it possible? Awesome! I've been running with software 3D forever because I don't want to give up my 16G RAM...

Re: Gigabit ethernet ports

I got some time do dig more into this, so I tried building kernel version 4.4.0 and 4.5.0, and booting them with the device tree present in the upstreams kernel sources for the respective version. None of them gave me working gigabit ethernet; although the dmesg for 4.5.0 looked rather promising, no...

Re: Spectre660's Linux downloads for the X5000

You might be interested in trying this X5000 Gentoo Minimal Install USB image that I did . https://www.dropbox.com/s/2d49mn4l215ab9p/Gentoo_1.img?dl=0 image is of a 512mb SD card so not too big. Have only only checked that it boots ok but have not tried an actual installation. You should probably c...

Re: Gigabit ethernet ports

@Spectre660 Well, here is what I did try: * Get the 4.9.25 sources from kernel.org * Apply the patch from your archive (some chunks failed though...) * Build with my own kernel config (but enable CONFIG_CYRUS) * Use my own DTB Not really any improvement though. fsl_mac appears in dmesg like before, ...

Re: Gigabit ethernet ports

Well, that made a difference at least, but not to the better: now fman fails to init:

Code: Select all

[    7.313993] fsl-fman ffe400000.fman: read_dts_node: Failed to get FM0 clock structure
[    7.314155] fsl-fman: probe of ffe400000.fman failed with error -5
Which kernel version does this DTB work with?

Re: Gigabit ethernet ports

Nope, adding VITESSE_PHY made no difference, the dmesg error is the same as before. If I use the DTB from Ubuntu MATE Live USB the interfaces don't even show up in ifconfig.

If you have a working DTS/DTB then I would love to get it.

TIA
