PLEASE test the new installation instructions with the new installation initial ramdisk.

Hello!
This is my first attempt to install linux on my X1000.
My configuration is:
- RadeonHD 4670 on the 1st PCI-e slot
- Radeon R9-280X on the 2st PCI-e slot
After installation, at the first startup the graphic output was on the Radeon R9-280X, but i had graphic problems (low resolution and a linux warning message).So i logged in console mode and changed xorg.conf according to the new installation instructions.
Now the graphic login appears on the RadeonHD 4670, but mouse and and keyboard doesn't work anymore.
This is not a freeze, because the clock on the menubar continue to run.
Amiga500 Kickstart1.3
AmigaONE XE G4 833MHz - 2GB RAM - Radeon9200 256MB
AmigaONE X1000 - 2GB RAM - Radeon R9-280X 3GB + Radeon HIS4670 1GB DDR3 - AmigaOS4.1

Hi AlfredOne,

Many thanks for testing the installation of Ubuntu 16.04.

First, please remove the following lines in the xorg.conf (/etc/X11/xorg.conf):

Code: Select all

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "kbd"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier  "Mouse0"
	Driver      "mouse"
	Option	    "Protocol" "auto"
	Option	    "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
	Option	    "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
EndSection
After that, please restart your AmigaONE X1000.

---

You have also the possibilty to install Ubuntu 16.04 with Spectre660's new ubuntu MATE 16.04 PowerPC ramdisk for the 4.4.3 kernel as well as the 4.1.18 Kernel.

Download: initrd-4.1.18_ubuntu-mate_16.04-ppc64-2.gz (I propose to download it with a right click on the link and then with the menu point "Save target as" or something like this.)

New:
  • Auto selecting and installing the official ubuntu MATE desktop
  • Installing the xorg.conf automatically
  • Copying the kernel modules automatically
Additionally you need one of the following kernels for Spectre660's new ubuntu MATE 16.04 PowerPC ramdisk:

Download latest stable kernel 4.4.3: vmlinux-4.4.3-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

Download stable longterm kernel 4.1.18: vmlinux-4.1.18-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

Good luck. :-)

Christian

Hi All,

New week, new RC. :-D

New:
Download: vmlinux-4.5-rc6-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

Today, I tested QEMU/KVM with the RC6 on ubuntu MATE 16.04 PowerPC. I successfully booted the Beta 1 of Lubuntu 16.04 PowerPC on a virtual Power Mac G3.

I've read that recent kernels have changed something with how they check file systems. I had trouble with getting 4.4 and 4.5 to work with the CF card ext2 file system and some usb sticks fat file system so according to something I've read recent kernels add an attribute to the file systems and after doing check file system (check partition) this seems to have fixed the issue as far as 4.4. With 4.5 it doesn't recognize my BTRFS and it writes that it searches for many file systems and the output line which lists the file systems doesn't include BTRFS. Maybe there are too many enabled?

Hi Srtest,

The Sam460ex 4.5 kernel has the same problem. I think, a developer modified the code in a wrong way.

We'll try to figure out the problem.

Hi Srtest,

Maybe we have a solution:

Got it to work on my Sam with 4.5-rc7 .
Remove all the checks and Debug options from your .config

CONFIG_BTRFS_FS=y
# CONFIG_BTRFS_FS_POSIX_ACL is not set
# CONFIG_BTRFS_FS_CHECK_INTEGRITY is not set
# CONFIG_BTRFS_FS_RUN_SANITY_TESTS is not set
# CONFIG_BTRFS_DEBUG is not set
# CONFIG_BTRFS_ASSERT is not set

Hi Srtest,

I removed all the BTRFS checks and debug options from the kernel config and after that I compiled the RC7 again.

Download: vmlinux-4.5-rc7-2-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

Please test it.

Christian
