Please test it with a R9 270X because of the new firmware si58_mc.bin.

Thanks,

Hi All,

The merge window is over and here is the first release candidate for testing.

The last two merge window weeks were successful for us because three patches by Darren were added to the Linux Git and I was able to fix the problem with the declaration of 'isa_bridge_find_early'. Additionally I deactivated the kernel option 'PASEMI_IOMMU_DMA_FORCE' and added the new firmware 'si58_mc.bin' for the Radeon R9 270X to the kernel. Now we have a very small Nemo patch because of Darren's patches.

New:
Darren's patches:
Download: vmlinux-4.11-rc1-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

BTW, I successfully upgraded ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC today. :-)

Hi All,

I have recently released the RC2. There was a problem with booting the RC2. I figured out that the problem is somewhere in the memory management subsystem of the kernel. New patches were integrated for the 'mm' last days. Fortunately the kernel developers fixed the problem for the RC3. If you want to compile the RC2, then you need to patch the kernel source code with the gup.patch. You can find this patch in the kernel 4.11-rc2 X1000 package.

Please test it.
