Hi All,

I compiled the stable longterm kernel 4.9.61 with some new firmwares for the X5000 and X1000 today.

New:
Download: vmlinux-4.9.61-AmigaONE_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

@Julian
Could you please test the stable longterm kernel 4.9.61 on your X5000? I would like to know if it boots with your graphics cards.

Hi All,

I cross compiled the stable longterm kernel 4.9.65 on my Lubuntu 16.04.3 LTS x86-64 for the X5000 and X1000 today. :-)

Could you please test this cross compiled kernel on your AmigaOne X1000 and X5000? I'd like to know if it works.

Download: vmlinux-4.9.65-AmigaONE_X1000_X5000.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

    Code: Select all

    sudo apt-get install u-boot-tools
  2. Download the stable longterm kernel 4.9.65
  3. Unpack the kernel archive
  4. Rename the directory for the patches:

    Code: Select all

    mv linux-4.9.65 a
    For the AmigaOne X1000:
  5. Patch the kernel source code with the Nemo patch:

    Code: Select all

    patch -p0 < nemo_4.9-8.patch
    For the AmigaOne X5000:
  6. Patch the kernel source code with the Cyrus patch:

    Code: Select all

    patch -p0 < cyrus_4.9-1.patch
    For the AmigaOne X5000 and X1000:
  7. 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
    
  8. Copy the additional files from the directory b to a
  9. Copy the old kernel config file to the a directory
  10. Change to the directory a
  11. 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
  12. Compile the Linux kernel:

    For the AmigaOne X1000:

    Code: Select all

    make CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-linux-gnu- ARCH=powerpc vmlinux
    For the AmigaOne X5000:

    Code: Select all

    make CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-linux-gnu- ARCH=powerpc uImage
  13. With file you can check the kernel.

    For the AmigaOne X1000:

    Code: Select all

    file vmlinux
    vmlinux: ELF 64-bit MSB executable, 64-bit PowerPC or cisco 7500, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, BuildID[sha1]=4eeead69178e4a309ec9719c363d92564e011b74, not stripped
    For the AmigaOne X5000:

    Code: Select all

    file uImage
    uImage: u-boot legacy uImage, Linux-4.9.65_A-EON_AmigaOneX5000\037\213\010, Linux/PowerPC, OS Kernel Image (gzip), 9676429 bytes, Sat Dec 23 00:38:21 2017, Load Address: 0x00000000, Entry Point: 0x00000000, Header CRC: 0xC237FC8D, Data CRC: 0xF45AC18E
    For the AmigaOne X5000 and X1000:
  14. Compile the Linux kernel modules:

    Code: Select all

    make CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-linux-gnu- ARCH=powerpc modules
  15. 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
