Hi All,

Here is the RC3-2 of kernel 5.3 for testing.

New:
It also includes:
  • Initial ramdisks for the X5000 and X1000. Instructions for creating an initial ramdisk: forum.hyperion-entertainment.com
  • X1000: pcmcia-v3 patch for solving the issues with new CF cards connected to the onboard CompactFlash Card Slot
  • 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)
Download: linux-image-5.3-rc3-2-X1000_X5000.tar.gz

@SailorMH
Please test the kernel with your CF cards.

@Allan (Ace)
Please test the kernel with your ATI FirePro 2260. Please also test it with your Logitech USB wireless mouse because of the HID fixes.

@Mechanic
Please test the kernel with your JMB363 card.

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

Thanks,
Christian

It feels snappy :-)
AmigaOne X5000 -> 2GHz / 16GB RAM / Radeon R7 250 / M-Audio 5.1 -> AmigaOS 4.1 FE / Ubuntu Linux
Amiga 1200 -> Recapped / 68ec020 ACA 1221ec / CF HDD / RetroNET connected to the world

Hi Skateman,

Many thanks for testing the RC3-2! :-) Have you really noticed the optimization of the preemptible kernel? I am not sure but I have the feeling that it works a little bit faster if I work with typical desktop applications. It can also be an illusion that it works faster.

Cheers,
Christian

Hi Allan,

Great news! :-) Could you please tell Hans that it works with the latest HID fixes?

Thanks,
Christian

Hey Christian,
When is the next long-term support kernel? I want to include it in the next Fienix release. I'm excited about the preemptible kernel config!

Maybe I can release the stable longterm kernel 4.19.65 with PREEMPT support next week.

Casey,

The stable kernel 4.20 has reached EOL. Please use the stable longterm kernel 4.19 for Fienix instead.
