Kernel 3.17

Post by xeno74 »

Hi All,

I have fantastic news for you. :-)

The Kernel 3.17 works on my A1-X1000. I have modified the Nemo patch.

Modifications:

Hi All,

I have uploaded the RC 1 of the kernel 3.17. Note: This is a test version and not a stable version.

New:
  • Significant Radeon improvements, in addition to another big DRM feature pull
It also includes:
  • KVM_BOOK3S_64_PR

    Support running guest kernels in virtual machines on processors
    without using hypervisor mode in the host, by running the
    guest in user mode (problem state) and emulating all
    privileged instructions and registers.

    This is not as fast as using hypervisor mode, but works on
    machines where hypervisor mode is not available or not usable,
    and can emulate processors that are different from the host
    processor, including emulating 32-bit processors on a 64-bit
    host.
  • 3dfx Voodoo graphics card support
  • Network support for AROS hosted
  • Support for 4 serial ports
  • Bluetooth USB dongle support
  • Kernel tracing with ftrace
  • Linux kernel icon for OS4.1 by Tommysammy
Download: vmlinux-3.17.0-rc1-KVM-PR-FTRACE-AmigaOneX1000.tar.bz2

Happy testing!
