It also includes:
  • X1000: pcmcia-v3 patch for solving the issues with new CF cards connected to the onboard CompactFlash Card Slot
  • X5000: uImages with and without vgaarb patch for testing of two graphics cards in a X5000
  • X5000 and X1000: vgaarb patch for solving the issue with two graphics cards in an AmigaOne. Link to the bug report: Bug 109345 - drm-next-2018-12-14 -Linux PPC
  • X1000: Enabled the kernel config options CONFIG_PATA_PCMCIA, CONFIG_PCMCIA, and CONFIG_ELECTRA_CF for the pcmcia-v3 patch
  • X1000: compressed kernel (zImage) and uncompressed kernel (vmlinux)

@SailorMH
Please test them with your CF cards.

@Allan (Ace)
Please test them with your two installed graphics cards and with your Logitech wireless USB mouse. Can you switch with CTRL-ALT-F1 (F2, F3, F4 etc) to another terminal after booting with the xorg.conf?

@Mechanic
Please test them with your JMB363 card.

@Darren
Could you please submit your new pcmcia patch to the kernel developers?

Thanks,
Christian

Hi All,

I successfully tested the RC1 of kernel 5.3 with openSUSE Tumbleweed 20190722 PPC64 today.

Screenshot of openSUSE Tumbleweed 20190722 PPC64 with the RC1 of kernel 5.3, with Mesa 19.1.2, with TVtime connected to an analog television PCI card (WinTV Express BT878A), and with Mac OS X 10.5 PowerPC in a virtual QEMU/KVM-PR machine:

PLEASE test the RC1 and the alphas of kernel 5.3.

Thanks,
Christian
