@Tom
Please Please Please test the RC1 on your X1000.
Ok, 14.4-rc1 boots fine and goes onto MATE gui fine.

Desktop looks good.
Firefox (47) is good, and LibreWriter works as it did on earlier kernels.

However, I stumbled on to something:

MATE System Monitor (1.18.0) hangs, requiring a force end, if I choose the File Systems tab.
Other tabs work though.

The File Systems tab works fine on kernel 13.1.
I'll try the earlier 14.4 versions and report back.
Edit: this glitch does not occur with 4.14-alpha1.
it does occur with 4.14-alpha2 and higher

I tested it too and you're right the file system tab doesn't work anymore.

Thanks,

Hi All,

The problems with lightdm and PCSX are fixed.

I compiled the RC2 for the X1000 and X5000 today.

Further news:
Download: vmlinux-4.14-rc2-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

Please test it.

Thanks,
Christian

Hi All,

I have recently released the RC3 for the X1000 and X5000.

New:
Download: vmlinux-4.14-rc3-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

BTW, I was able to update openSUSE Tumbleweed PPC64 to version 20170924 today.

Screenshot of openSUSE Tumbleweed 20170924 PPC64 with the RC3 of kernel 4.14:

Please test it.

Thanks,
Christian

4.14-rc3 starts up nicely on my X1000.

Even better, the FileSystems tab of SystemMonitor that failed in -rc1 and rc2
seems to be working again.
