Many thanks for testing! We still need the dpaa patch because the kernel developers haven’t fixed the dpaa issue yet.

Hi All,

I successfully tested the RC3 of kernel 5.8 on my MorphOS compatible X5000 machine today.

System:
  • A-EON AmigaOne X5000/20
  • ATi Radeon X1950 PRO Extreme
  • Creative Soundblaster LIVE Player 1024

I don't know what dpaa is (Bing doesn't want to tell me), but could it have anything to do with the fact that when I boot with Kernel 5.8 RC3 instead of 5.5 I get a bunch of

@kilaueabart

Yes, that's correct. It's the onboard ethernet.

Bing, huh? ;-)

Using another search machine (in this case Google) brought me to this - after a WikiPedia disambiguation page:

Bing might very well have shown me something like that, but in my current mental condition that doesn't tell me anything either. :(

Well, I can't say I understand every aspect of it either, but the gist I got from it is that it's an architecture for some of the contents of the SoC (System on a Chip) which is the heart of the X5000, so in this case it tells us that we're talking about the network controller which is integrated in the chip (as opposed to a separate PCI network card).

Best regards,

Hi All,

I released the RC5 of kernel 5.8 for the X1000 and X5000 today.

New:
Download: linux-image-5.8-rc5-X1000_X5000.tar.gz

Screenshot of Fienix with the RC5 and with a virtual Fienix in a QEMU/KVM HV machine:

Please test the kernels.
