Hi All,

I have some good news for you. Canonical extends the support for the Linux kernel 3.13 until April 2016. Link: http://news.softpedia.com/news/Canonical-Extends-the-Support-for-Linux-Kernel-3-13-Until-April-2016-439185.shtml

We use the Ubuntu kernel 3.13 in our Live Remix DVD. That means, we have kernel support for our Live Remix DVD until April 2016!!!!!

Here is the new Ubuntu kernel for our Live Remix DVD. It based on the new Ubuntu 3.13 longterm kernel. I have integrated the latest Radeon firmwares.

Download: kernel-3.13.9-1-x1000-ubuntu-ppc64.tar.bz2

Have fun continues with the Live Remix DVD!

Cheers,

Christian

xeno, one offtopic question i asked it via pm on a1k already. since you have done linux ppc mesa port, would that be possible to identify with your help the endian crucial sections of source code (in particular software renderer) in order to achieve endian independence on aros mesa, which is obviously big endian for most part. this is currently just an idea, my background is that after late fixes by deadwood ive got mesa running under winuae aros68k but with wrong colors and so on. personally id like to see aros mesa ppc/68k ready.

Canonical has released a new version of the Ubuntu 3.13 longterm kernel. I have patch it with our nemo patch and I have built it for our AmigaOne X1000. You can boot your A-EON Live Remix DVD with this kernel. It also works with Lubuntu 12.04.4, Ubuntu 10.04.4 etc. It doesn't have a kernel modules directory.

Download: kernel-3.13.13-1-x1000-ubuntu-ppc64.tar.bz2 (It based on the latest Ubuntu kernel sources 3.13.0-32.56)

Changelog



You can boot the new kernel 3.13.13 with your Live Remix DVD with following commands:

Code: [Select]
CFE> ramdisk -addr=0x24000000 -fs=iso atapi0.1:casper/powerpc64/initrd
CFE> setenv bootargs "root=/dev/ramdisk file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper quiet ro splash --"
CFE> boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-3.13.13
Have a lot of fun with the new kernel! :)

A new 3.13 longterm kernel by Canonical is available. I have patched it with our nemo patch and then I have removed the CPU frequency scaling support from the kernel config. This means, that the CPU always runs in the highest rate. This kernel is based on the latest Ubuntu kernel sources 3.13.0-33.58.

Changelog

Download: kernel-3.13.14-1-x1000-ubuntu-ppc64.tar.bz2



Screenshot: Tux is very sad about removing the CPU frequency scaling support. :D

Just for some giggles, have you tried benchmarking the X1000 vs a run of the mill Intel box?  I'm kind of curious how the PPC matches up.  Granted, you'd probably want to make it even and use the same kernel versions on each.  It'd also be cool to see differences in performance on the PPC between kernels.

I'd hazard a guess that standard i3 box running Windows and HyperV with a Linux guest emulating the PA running Linux kernel 3.13 would blow it out of the water.
But that's just an interestingly extrapolated guess. ��
