Roland,

I think I have found the issue. Many apps aren't compatible with the P5020 CPU. For example LightDM and libLLVM.so.7.

Please boot to the runlevel 3 with the boot argument "3":

For example:

Code: Select all

setenv bootargs root=/dev/sdb 3
Login as "root" (password: amigaone) and rename the libLLVM.so.7 to libLLVM.so.7.bak with the following command:

Code: Select all

mv /usr/lib64/libLLVM.so.7 /usr/lib64/libLLVM.so.7.bak
After that you can start Xorg with "startx".

I was able to start iceWM (command: icewm) and FVWM2 (command fvwm). MATE and XFCE don't work.

Sorry,
Christian

What does this runlevel argument actually do...? What values are possible, and what is the default if you do not define it?

"icewm" did nothing but the other option worked for me - THANKS !-) In fact, I have not used FVWM2 before, quite funny and original...

Hi All,

I was able to update openSUSE Tumbleweed PowerPC64 to version 20201002 today.

Be aware, that openSUSE is experimental and isn't supported. openSUSE for the AmigaOne X1000 and X5000 is alpha software! It's only for testing and tinkering!

Cheers,
Christian

Hi All,

I was able to copy the complete openSUSE partition with dd and netcat via network from the X1000 to the X5000 today.

Commands:

X5000:

Code: Select all

# netcat –l -p 4444 | dd of=/dev/sda3
X1000:

Code: Select all

# dd if=/dev/sdb6 | netcat 192.168.178.59 4444
X1000: dd output:

Code: Select all

32323584+0 records in
32323584+0 records out
16549675008 bytes (17 GB, 15 GiB) copied, 1412,44 s, 11,7 MB/s
X5000: dd output:

Code: Select all

23879952+10266507 records in
32323584+0 records out
16549675008 bytes (17 GB, 15 GiB) copied, 1487.5 s, 11.1 MB/s
X5000:

Code: Select all

e2fsck -f /dev/sda3
Output:

Code: Select all

e2fsck 1.42.13 (17-May-2015)
Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
Pass 2: Checking directory structure
Pass 3: Checking directory connectivity
Pass 4: Checking reference counts
Pass 5: Checking group summary information
openSUSE: 456457/1011840 files (0.5% non-contiguous), 2954960/4040448 blocks
X5000:

Code: Select all

# resize2fs /dev/sda3
Output:

Code: Select all

resize2fs 1.42.13 (17-May-2015)
Resizing the filesystem on /dev/sda3 to 90789888 (4k) blocks.
The filesystem on /dev/sda3 is now 90789888 (4k) blocks long.
Issue: Xorg doesn't start because libLLVM.so.10 isn't compatible with the P50x0 CPUs.

Solution:

Please boot to the runlevel 3 with the boot argument "3":

Code: Select all

setenv bootargs root=/dev/sda 3
Login as "root" (password: amigaone) and rename the libLLVM.so.10 to libLLVM.so.10.bak with the following command:

Code: Select all

mv /usr/lib64/libLLVM.so.10 /usr/lib64/libLLVM.so.10.bak
After that you can start Xorg with "startx". Unfortunately XFCE and MATE don't work on the X5000 but you can use FVWM instead.

Christian
