Re: Kernel 4.20/5.0

Hi Hypex, Any news? I compiled the latest stable and test kernels with initrds for you. I compressed some X1000 Linux kernels for your X1000 Debian installer project. I hope it helps. Sorry, I've been busy and didn't check back. Will do some testing. Thanks. In the meantime I need to go from LABEL ...

Ah okay. Can't they just flick a few switches and recompile it? :lol:

Thanks. Good answer.
I also asked the members of the A-EON Linux development and support team.
And what did they say? Looks like this could be a goer for a future kernel.

Re: Kernel 4.19

Why is the loading routines on the X5000 so fast? That's not normal for an AmigaOne cpmputer.

Also, what's with the loading and entry point of zero? That would crash a normal computer. Trying to load at zero on my XE immediately crashes it. :o

Re: Kernel 4.20/5.0

As Vox was asking what's the possibility of compiling a ppc64el kernel and installing a little endian Linux? For people testing kernels I recommend to have a menu setup that is set to boot a kernel/ramdisk of a specific generic name, like vmlinux or vmlinux-testing. Then when a new one arrives just ...

Re: Kernel 4.20/5.0

Great! :-) Many thanks for testing my kernel and ramdisk. Fantastic, that you was able to boot from an Amiga partition. Well done! Nice. :D I will have to move form LABEL to UUID soon. Right now my A1 HDD is on my X1000 for backing up. As evidence for randomness of drive assignments I went to boot ...

Re: Kernel 4.20/5.0

Hypex is right. The compressed kernel is one-third smaller than the uncompressed kernel and it boots a little little little bit faster. I hope Hypex can help us with improving our Linux support. He posted here yesterday and it seems he is gone again. Oh just over night. I went to bed. :) I found so...

Re: Kernel 4.20/5.0

My CF disk is pretty big, so I haven't really needed compression. I didn't need compression for any size contraints on disk. Mainly it is good for us as our firmware loads it in a slow PIO mode. Or from a CF/USB drive which can be even slower. Also firmware tends to have low limits (like under 16MB...

Re: Kernel 4.20/5.0

Hi Hypex, Thank you for your hint. I compiled the RC1 of kernel 4.20 with the command make zImage for the X1000 today. It boots and it's smaller than a vmlinux image. zImage-4.20 = 26MB vmlinux-4.20 = 31MB Oh nice. I don't know what is compressed inside it as there are still lots of zeros .config: ...

Re: Kernel 4.20/5.0

Hi Hypex, Great suggestion! :-) I know batch scripts and I like your idea! Please help us with adding the X1000 support. Thanks. I don't know what features CFE offers in batch files. I should look it up. I've only made some with a few commands. I'd be happy to help adding the X1000 to the official ...
