A1-X1000: Linux Kernel 3.19
« on: January 12, 2015, 05:54:27 PM »
I have released the RC4 of kernel 3.19 for our AMIGA one X1000 recently.

New:

Linux 3.19-rc4 announcement by Linus Torvalds
Linux 3.19-rc4 Kernel Released
Linux 3.19-rc3 Is A Quiet Release Coming One Day Late
Linux 3.19-rc2 Is A Tiny Release
Linux 3.19-rc1 Kernel Released Ahead Of Schedule

Known A1-X1000 problem: Mac-on-Linux network support doesn't work. Mac OS X 10.4.11 freezes if you activate the TUN/TAP kernel module (device driver).

Download: vmlinux-3.19.0-rc4-KVM-PR-AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.bz2



Just for info: The kernel devolopers rewrote 'power off' for the kernel 3.19. I modified the Nemo patch.

Hi All,

The Linux 3.19 kernel is now officially available. Thank you very much for testing the release candidates.

Download: vmlinux-3.19.0-KVM-PR-AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.bz2

New:

- Support for Xubuntu, Lubuntu, and ubuntu MATE 15.04


It also includes:

- KVM_BOOK3S_64_PR

Support running guest kernels in virtual machines on processors without using hypervisor mode in the host, by running the guest in user mode (problem state) and emulating all privileged instructions and registers.

This is not as fast as using hypervisor mode, but works on machines where hypervisor mode is not available or not usable, and can emulate processors that are different from the host processor, including emulating 32-bit processors on a 64-bit host.

- Mac-on-Linux support
- Network support for AROS hosted
- Support for 4 serial ports
- Bluetooth USB dongle support
- Kernel tracing with ftrace
- Linux kernel icon for OS4.1 by Tommysammy

Rgds,
