@Tom
Could you please test the RC6 on your AmigaOne X1000?

Here is the RC6 of kernel 4.17 for the X5000, X1000, and for virtual e5500 QEMU machines.

Please test it.

I quickly needed a HD on another machine and now that I put it back in the A1X1000 I'm having difficulties installing _ANY_ Linux (Debian, Remix2017, 16.04 base, 16.04 LiveDVD). To the extent that I can't even boot the LiveDVD (using version 3 of the iso I found in some thread here and downloaded from your server. Thanks for all the work BTW).

I'll try again tonight and if I succeed I will test the 4.17 RC6

FYI: PowerPC fixes 4.17-7

Please test the RC6 on your X1000. It has been cross compiled and I don't know if it works on your X1000.

Hi All,

I released the RC7 of kernel 4.17 for the X5000, X1000, and for virtual e5500 QEMU machines today.

New:
Download: vmlinux-4.17-rc7-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

Screenshot of the RC7 of kernel 4.17 in virtual e5500 PPC64 QEMU 2.12.0 machines on a PC:

I booted the two virtual e5500 QEMU machines with the following commands:

Code: Select all

qemu-system-ppc64 -M ppce500 -cpu e5500 -m 2048 -kernel /home/christian/Downloads/vmlinux-4.17-rc7-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000/QEMU_e5500/uImage-4.17 -drive format=raw,file=/home/christian/Downloads/MATE_PowerPC_Remix_2017_0.9.img,index=0,if=virtio -nic user,model=e1000 -append "rw root=/dev/vda" -device virtio-vga -device virtio-mouse-pci -device virtio-keyboard-pci

Code: Select all

qemu-system-ppc64 -M ppce500 -cpu e5500 -m 2048 -nographic -kernel /home/christian/Downloads/vmlinux-4.17-rc7-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000/X5000/uImage-4.17 -drive format=raw,file=/home/christian/Dokumente/ubuntu_MATE_16.04.3_LTS_PowerPC_QEMU/ubuntu_MATE_16.04_PowerPC.img,index=0,if=virtio -nic user,model=e1000 -append "rw root=/dev/vda3"
I cross compiled the kernels on my PC today. Please test them on your X5000 and X1000.

Thanks in advance,
Christian

kernel 4.17-rc7 looks good here on the X1000.
(as also does 4.17-r6)

Hi Tom,

It‘s good to know that the RC6 and the RC7 boot and work on your X1000. We can release the final next week. Thanks a lot for testing.

Cheers,
