Hi All,

Great news! The DRM TTM (Direct Rendering Manager Translation Table Maps) have been fixed in the official kernel source code. :-) I compiled the RC2 of kernel 4.15 today and the hardware 3D acceleration works with SWIOTLB disabled. You don't need the drm ttm patch anymore. :-)

Cheers,
Christian

Re: Kernel 4.15

hi.

sorry to ask but is there somewhere a list of the following available:
  • list of available kernels & download
  • list of available linux images or live dvds
  • most important: a description how to boot/start/install the (different) kernels and images
can we maybe make this a sticky topic here in the board?

from time to time i'm in the mood to test a linux version here on my x1000 :-) but - well- every time i have no clue again how to do it.

thanks and regards

Hi Michael,

You can find all the kernels, images, and ISOs on the following website: http://www.supertuxkart-amiga.de/amiga/x1000.html#downloads. You can test our ubuntu MATE 16.04 live DVD if you like.

Download: ubuntu-mate-16.04.1-desktop-powerpc-x1000-3.iso

Commands for booting the live DVD:
  1. Code: Select all

    CFE> ramdisk -addr=0x24000000 -fs=iso atapi0.1:casper/powerpc64/initrd.
  2. Code: Select all

    CFE> setenv bootargs "root=/dev/ramdisk file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu-mate.seed boot=casper quiet ro splash --"
  3. Code: Select all

    CFE> boot -elf -noints -fs=iso atapi0.1:casper/powerpc64/vmlinux.
You can also boot the live DVD with a new kernel. Examples:

Code: Select all

CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs -cf0:vmlinux-4.9
Download stable longterm kernel 4.9: vmlinux-4.9.61-AmigaONE_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

Code: Select all

CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs -cf0:vmlinux-4.14
Download stable kernel 4.14: vmlinux-4.14.2-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

Code: Select all

CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs -cf0:vmlinux-4.15
Download test kernel 4.15: vmlinux-4.15-rc2-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

Please try it.

Thanks,
Christian

hi christian.

can you maybe post this sticky at the top of the forum? would be quite usefull for all.

i guess the live "dvd" can also be used from a pen drive?

hmm...
so are the other images, like the opensus ones (http://www.supertuxkart-amiga.de/amiga/ ... nsuse.html) no "live" dvds? only usefull for installation? i thought theses days all of the linux distros can be run out of the box for testing? just to understand.

thanks and regards...

How can I do it? Unfortunately I am not the admin here.

I haven't tried it yet. You can try it if you like and post if it works.

The openSUSE images are live images. You can copy them to USB sticks and boot from.

Firstly please try the ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS live DVD. Copy it with dd on Linux or with the USB image Tool on Windows to a USB flash drive.

After that try to boot it with the following commands:
  1. Code: Select all

    CFE> ramdisk -addr=0x24000000 -fatfs usbdisk0:casper/powerpc64/initrd.
  2. Code: Select all

    CFE> setenv bootargs "root=/dev/ramdisk file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu-mate.seed boot=casper quiet ro splash --"
  3. Code: Select all

    CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs usbdisk0:casper/powerpc64/vmlinux.
Or try
  1. Code: Select all

    CFE> ramdisk -addr=0x24000000 -fs=iso usbdisk0:casper/powerpc64/initrd.
  2. Code: Select all

    CFE> setenv bootargs "root=/dev/ramdisk file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu-mate.seed boot=casper quiet ro splash --"
  3. Code: Select all

    CFE> boot -elf -noints -fs=iso usbdisk0:casper/powerpc64/vmlinux.
You can also boot the live DVD with a new kernel. Examples:

Code: Select all

CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs -cf0:vmlinux-4.9
Download stable longterm kernel 4.9: vmlinux-4.9.61-AmigaONE_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

Code: Select all

CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs -cf0:vmlinux-4.14
Download stable kernel 4.14: vmlinux-4.14.4-AmigaOne_X1000.tar.gz

Code: Select all

CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs -cf0:vmlinux-4.15
Download test kernel 4.15: vmlinux-4.15-rc2-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

Please note: To recognise a USB device plugged into a different USB-port, you always have to insert the USB device AFTER entering the CFE console. I assume you have inserted only one USB stick which is designated usbdisk0: Once ubuntu MATE is installed, it is recommended to boot the kernel from the CF card.

Please try it.

Cheers,
Christian

Hi All,

Here is the new RC3 for testing.

New:
Download: vmlinux-4.15-rc3-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

Screenshot of the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 with the new RC3 booted with the new uInitrd and with the LABEL AMIGAONE from a USB flash drive on my AmigaOne X5000:

Please test it.

Thanks,
Christian
