Hi All,

I have really great news for you. :) The stable longterm kernel 4.1 is back! The kernel developers solved the problem with the kernel freezing. They also fixed the build break due to missing PPC_FEATURE2_HTM_NOSC.

The new longterm kernel 4.1.29 is very stable again. :)

I tested a lot of things with the kernel 4.1.29 and it works very well.

Test results:

  • Hardware 3D acceleration works with an AMD Radeon HD6870 (tested with DOOM 3 and SuperTuxKart 0.8.1-2)
  • Sound works (MP3 files, web radio etc)
  • LAN works (Realtek RTL-8139)
  • WLAN works (FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick N)
  • "PR" KVM works (QEMU guest: Mac OS X 10.4.11 Tiger)
  • Compiz works
  • YouTube HD videos work with ViewTube
  • Internal CF card works
  • pas_shutdown works
Further information:

Download: vmlinux-4.1.29-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

Please test it.

Thanks,

Christian

Hi All,

I released the stable longterm kernel 4.1.31 today.

New:

- Linux Git log
- ChangeLog

Download: vmlinux-4.1.31-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

Xubuntu 16.10 PowerPC with the new stable longterm kernel 4.1.31:



I was able to boot Julian's ubuntu MATE 16.04 from the USB flash drive with the new longterm kernel 4.1.31 and with the initrd.img-4.1.31. I use the label Ubuntu_16.04.

  • Code: [Select]
    ramdisk -z -addr=0x2400000 -fatfs usbdisk0:initrd.img-4.1.31
  • Code: [Select]
    setenv bootargs "root=LABEL=Ubuntu_16.04"
  • Code: [Select]
    boot -elf- noints -fatfs usbdisk0:vmlinux-4.1
Please note: CFE firmware does not recognise USB devices on power-up unless they are connected to the first USB port which is reserved for the keyboard.  Unless you have a USB hub connected to the first port which allows you to connect both the keyboard and USB disk, you will need to insert the USB disk AFTER you have entered CFE.

Cheers,

Christian
