Hi All,

I cross compiled the stable longterm kernel 4.9.31 on my ubuntu MATE 16.04.2 LTS x86-64 today. :-)

Could you please test this cross compiled kernel on your AmigaOne X1000? I'd like to know if it works.

Download: vmlinux-4.9.31-cc-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

Cross compiling instructions:

System requirements: Ubuntu 14.04 x86 or higher
  1. Install the toolchain with the following commands:

    Code: Select all

    sudo apt-get install gcc-powerpc-linux-gnu

    Code: Select all

    sudo apt-get install build-essential

    Code: Select all

    sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev
  2. Download the stable longterm kernel 4.9.31
  3. Unpack the kernel archive
  4. Rename the directory for the Nemo patch:

    Code: Select all

    mv linux-4.9.31 a
  5. Patch the kernel source code with the Nemo patch:

    Code: Select all

    patch -p0 < nemo_4.9-8.patch
  6. Patch the kernel source code with the BFQ patches:

    Code: Select all

    patch -p0 < 0001-block-cgroups-kconfig-build-bits-for-BFQ-v7r11-4.5.0.patch
    patch -p0 < 0002-block-introduce-the-BFQ-v7r11-I-O-sched-for-4.5.0.patch
    patch -p0 < 0003-block-bfq-add-Early-Queue-Merge-EQM-to-BFQ-v7r11-for.patch
    patch -p0 < 0004-Turn-into-BFQ-v8r7-for-4.9.0.patch
    
  7. Copy the additional files from the directory b to a
  8. Copy the old kernel config file to the a directory
  9. Change to the directory a
  10. Create a new kernel config file based on the old kernel config file:

    Code: Select all

    make CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-linux-gnu- ARCH=powerpc oldconfig
  11. Compile the Linux kernel:

    Code: Select all

    make CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-linux-gnu- ARCH=powerpc vmlinux
  12. With file you can check if make had built a PPC64 kernel.

    Code: Select all

    file vmlinux
    vmlinux: ELF 64-bit MSB executable, 64-bit PowerPC or cisco 7500, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, BuildID[sha1]=4fe4132740899efc7f601766209a96a45993c92c, not stripped
  13. Compile the Linux kernel modules:

    Code: Select all

    make CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-linux-gnu- ARCH=powerpc modules
  14. Install the Linux kernel modules:

    Code: Select all

    sudo make CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-linux-gnu- ARCH=powerpc modules_install
    You can get the kernel modules from the directory /lib/modules.
Please test the cross compiled kernel.

Thanks,
Christian
