Not successfully. I flashed the image to another SD card, but with that installed, my X5000 wouldn't even power on let alone boot. So I have given up for now, gone back to my original SD card.

How did you flash the IMG file?

You can use balena etcher for example. This works fine for me.

I followed the documentation here, using RawWrite

https://wiki.amiga.org/index.php/AmigaO ... date_Uboot

I'll have another go using balena etcher later this week.

@daveyw
Creating a new SD card is tricky
I've got here more then 1 SD card, including the original. They all show the same symptoms.

@skateman
I have https://www.conrad.nl/nl/p/renkforce-rf ... fresh=true adapter. Different brand, but looks identical, that I hooked up to my RaspberryPi2. The RS232c cable is(/was!) hooked up to the serial port of the X5000.
I installed Putty on the Rasp and then from /dev I had to make a choice for a 'tty'-entry. There are quite a number listed, from simple 'tty' to 'tty0' upto and including 'tty63', so all in all 65 options. For no specific or particular reasons I chose 'tty0', with its editor I set Speed to 115200 and connection 'Serial'
Further down the page I selected SSH --> Serial
- Serial line to connect to '/dev/ttyS0'
- Speed 115200
- Databits 8
- Stopbits 1
- Parity None
- Flowcontrol None

Where does that '/dev/ttyS0' come from? As I already mentioned, there's only tty, tty0 ... tty63, no ttyS0''-entry.

I'm not in any particular hurry: the X5000 board is packed in the box I first got it in from A-Eon, ready to be sent to 'them' for checking, but after repetitive e-mails, up to now I haven't gotten any answer yet.

I use a USB null modem RS-232 serial cable (/dev/ttyUSB0).

Code: Select all

X5000> setenv bootargs "console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/sda4"

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

@xeno74:

Thanks for this info and when I'm in the mood for any further endeavours I may refer to this again, but, as I already stated: I'm not in a hurry...

If it matters I find a lot of serial problems are due to root. So it may help to run as root or go through sudo if that's configured. Other ones I've tried are CuteCom and Serial port terminal.

It did look slow to boot. Off DVD would slow it down. You replaced your SATA cables so should have fixed any drive issues.
