It works with my Lubuntu 14.04. :-) Thanks a lot! You're doing a great job.

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

Thanks.
Lubuntu 14.04 is looking good on the Sam440ep apart from moving windows. I have a lag and float effect on my system.
seems to have improved a bit with the latest lubuntu update today .
don't know if it is because of my pcie adapter. other graphics functions like scrolling in a window in Firefox are very quick.

Untested 3.14.0-rc4 Kernel for Sam460ex if any one wants to try it.
Warning I have not tested this as I still do not have a working Sam460ex .

WOW THX, will try it tomorrow!!!! :-D

EDIT1: works most of times!!! but sometimes it just shows a black screen (can almost see that text output is at top of screen, but just see 1-2 pixels wide) and the when trying to show lubuntu Welcome/Login screen it just shows a plain blue/white color. Will try to make some more test.

BTW when I update the kernel what files are "must have" in /boot ?
Speakijn about kernel 3.1x versions/revisions:
-/boot/uImage: of course is a "must have" it has/is kernel 3.x :-)
-/lib/modules/kernel3.x.x... : alas uImage, you must have each drawer for each kernel/uImage.
-/boot/canyonlands.dtb: does it matter if I use "old"/previous kernels canyonlands.dtb, or should I stick/use the one it comes with the kernel/uImage archive?
-/boot/System.map: the same question as canyonlands.dtb. Can I only use/have latest System.map for every kernel I load?
-/lib/firmware files: alas System.map, can I use latest firmware files doesn't matter what kernel I boot/load/use.


Now I'm using in menu.lst:

Code: Select all

title Lubuntu 14.04 For Sam460ex
kernel /uImage313 root=/dev/sda11 radeon.dpm=0 console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0  
dtb /canyonlands313.dtb

title Lubuntu 14.04 (kernel 3.14rc)
kernel /uImage314 root=/dev/sda11 console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0
dtb /canyonlands314.dtb
And using the same (latest) System.map and firmware files.

Code: Select all

javierdlr@Sam460ex:/lib/modules$ ls /boot
canyonlands313.dtd  lost+found  System.map  uImage314
canyonlands314.dtb  menu.lst    uImage313
javierdlr@Sam460ex:/lib/modules$ 
..
/lib/modules$ ls 
3.13.0-rc7-Sam460ex  3.14.0-rc4-Sam460ex
javierdlr@Sam460ex:/lib/modules$

Thanks
Cant be sure what is causing the problem without being able to test it myself.
There is one thing that i had added (Future PCMCIA support)that I could remove if you want to test again .

Your method for the menu.lst should work ok.

for my method to test I first copy the modules for the new kernel to /lib/modules/ on the linux root partition then boot the new kernel from a bootable SFS/00 partition. this requires a menu.lst file on the SFS/00 partition . Once every thing boots ok I copy the new kernel and canyonlands.dtb to the linux EXT2 /boot partition (/boot) . The system.map files is not needed .If I need to boot an older kernel I use the SFS/00 partition .

So required files

/boot
uImage
canyonlands.dtb

/lib/modules

Version # 2 of the Sam460ex 3.14.0-rc4 kernel to try. This one removes the pcmcia stuff.
You will have to delete the previous 3.14.0-rc4 modules and replace t hem the the newer one.
If this one also has a black screen then I will have to use my earlier configs.

THX, will test it ASAP.

EDIT1: installed rc4-2 and no problems so far. Will test it further and post here if I get something strange. :-)

BIG THX

Dear Spectre

I can confirm that 3.14.0-rc4 kernel works with my LUbuntu 12 installation on Sam460..

Thanks :)
