Julian has recently released a new image of the final beta for the AmigaONE X1000 with Radeon HD Northern Islands graphics cards.

I have downloaded the new ...NI-2.img.7z , expanded it and put via dd on a stick. Also the new stick did not come to a result. I am desperate. The picture looks so nice to me! But I can't get it.

Hi Papaoskar,

Could you please explain me what happened exactly? Have you seen any error messages?

Cheers,

Christian

Hi All,

I successfully tested Julian's latest image of ubuntu MATE 16.04 final beta PowerPC for the AmigaONE X1000 with Radeon HD Northern Islands graphics cards today.

I was able to boot ubuntu MATE 16.04 final beta PowerPC with the kernel 4.6-rc1 from my 64GB USB flash drive. It works fantastic with my AMD Radeon HD6870.

Screenshot:

Please test Julian's images.

Cheers,

Christian

OK, here are the installation instructions:
  1. Download the image from the following link: Amigaone_Ubuntu_16.04-Base-1.img.7z
  2. Decompress the downloaded image with 7-Zip
  3. Copy it with dd on Linux or with the USB image Tool on Windows to a USB flash drive.

    For example with Linux:

    Code: Select all

    dd if=Amigaone_Ubuntu_16.04-Base-1.img of=disk drive ID
    In my case /dev/sdh:

    Code: Select all

    dd if=Amigaone_Ubuntu_16.04-Base-1.img of=/dev/sdh
  4. The ROOT partition is very small (1.8GB). You can increase it with GParted if you like. I have a 64GB USB flash drive. I increased the ROOT partition to 58.36GB.

  5. Turn on the AmigaONE X1000 and press F to enter the CFE prompt. Insert the USB flash drive.
  6. Next enter the following at the CFE> prompt (pressing enter after each line):

    Code: Select all

    setenv bootargs "root=the_ROOT_partition_on_your_usb_flash_drive quiet ro splash rootdelay=5"
    I booted my X1000 with Debian before and I saw that the ROOT partition on the USB flash drive is /dev/sdd2.

    In my case:

    Code: Select all

    setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sdd2 quiet ro splash rootdelay=5"
    I use the stable longterm kernel 4.1.18 on my CF card to boot Ubuntu 16.04 on the USB flash drive. You can use an other kernel if you like.

    Code: Select all

    boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-4.1
    Ubuntu Xenial Xerus (development branch) Amigaone tty1

    Amigaone login:
  7. The login details are as follows:

    Username of amigaone has the password amigaone
  8. Please configure your network interface with DHCP with the following command:

    Code: Select all

    sudo dhclient network_device
    You can figure out the correct network interface with /sbin/ifconfig -a.

    In my case:

    Code: Select all

    sudo dhclient enp6s5
  9. I installed the Lubuntu desktop with the following commands:

    Code: Select all

    sudo apt-get update

    Code: Select all

    sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop
    - [this will take some time to complete depending on the speed of your internet connection]
  10. After that shutdown your AmigaONE X1000 with:

    Code: Select all

    sudo halt
    We need a xorg.conf on this system so we have to copy zappa2009's radeon xorg.conf file to /etc/X11 on the ROOT partition of the USB flash drive with an other system.

    Code: Select all

    cp X.org.conf/Xorg.conf.radeon /media/_your_username_/_disk_id_of_the_partition_on_the_USB_flash_drive_/etc/X11/xorg.conf
  11. Turn on the AmigaONE X1000 and press F to enter the CFE prompt. Insert the USB flash drive.
  12. Next enter the following at the CFE> prompt (pressing enter after each line):

    Code: Select all

    setenv bootargs "root=the_ROOT_partition_on_your_usb_flash_drive quiet ro splash rootdelay=5"
    In my case:

    Code: Select all

    setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sdd2 quiet ro splash rootdelay=5"

    Code: Select all

    boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-4.1
  13. The Lubuntu login screen appears. Please login.

    Username of amigaone has the password amigaone
Here you are. :-)

Today I updated my Lubuntu 16.04 PowerPC on my USB flash drive and after that I changed this installation to xubuntu 16.04 PowerPC with the following commands:

Image
  1. Code: Select all

    sudo su
  2. Code: Select all

    apt-get update
  3. Code: Select all

    apt-get upgrade
  4. Code: Select all

    apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
  5. There is a problem with the brltty package. The configuration doesn't work. I had to remove the package brltty.

    Code: Select all

    apt-get remove brltty
After a new login I was surprised. This is really a nice desktop.

After a recent update to Lubutnu/LXQt 16.04 I could no longer get to the desktop. I used the AMDGPU version of the xorg.conf file. Switching to the Radeon version also didn't help. Only reverting to "fbdev" only without anything else allowed me to return to the desktop. All of this while using Kernel 4.6 RC1 (same on older kernels). I think that on the R9 270 since it is not using anything but the software renderer it didn't change anything to the worse and it actually always used "fbdeb" regardless of what was added in the xorg configuration file. It seams also to be effected from installing Libinput and Xserver Libinput as a relacement to the old Wacom driver so this might have been the cause of all of this.

Hurra! I got a Mate screen! The fault of mine was I guess the wrong bootargs. It seems to be necessary to set the bootargs command exactly as you Xeno have written it. Some thing after the /dev/sdd2 part is a must have. I omitted the "quiet ro splash ". Maybe that that was the reason of failure!
I am away for 4 weeks now and will probably come back later as I want to have 16.04 on my hard disk. Thank you for your patience.
