Hi Corto,

Thanks a lot for testing! Did you try "-z" and it didn’t work?

Please don't forget to remind to start with "set pmu -astate=A4" in CFE to run at full speed.
OK, thanks for the hint.

Cheers,
Christian

I tested it today. Both are working. I was able to boot with "-z" and without "-z".

You're right, I tested again with "-z" and that works. I suppose the first time, I made a syntax error elsewhere on the line ...

Anyway ... I still don't know how to install the system once it is booted from USB.

And note that with a Radeon SI board, Xorg does not start. There is a non-blinking cursor on a black screen and nothing more. And impossible to switch to a console.

I wrote some instructions for installing Fienix 3.0-20200426 on a hard disk for the X5000 a month ago.

Maybe it helps you with installing it on the X1000.

Link to the thread: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro -- X5000 thread

You have to replace the U-Boot commands with the CFE commands. I am sure you are able to do it. Please try it.

Thanks

Minetest 5.2 and several mods are now available in the Fienix software repositories. Minetest is an open-world voxel sandbox game similar to Minecraft. The mod "Skyblock" gives a good introduction to the game and crafting.

I created a tutorial video for the Fienix Open-Source Gaming series: Minetest Tutorial

Additionally, some games were recently updated to their most recent release including Blobwars, PRBoom+ and xmoto.

Please let me know if you run into any issues.
