Hi All,

Our AMIGA one X1000 doesn't boot with the irq source code from the kernel 4.2. I had to downgrade this source code to the kernel 4.1 irq source code last week. After the downgrade, our AMIGA one X1000 booted without any problems with the old kernel 4.1 irq source code. The kernel developers updated the kernel 4.2 irq source code yesterday.

https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=c4bc680cf7bcd257865dac97dd2debbc9dcffad4

Therefore I compiled the RC2 without downgrading the irq source code today. Unfortunately the RC2 of kernel 4.2 doesn't boot with the updated kernel 4.2 irq source code. :(

I downgraded the irq source code to the kernel 4.1 (4.1.2) irq source code again. After then it boots without any problems.

Linux 4.2-rc2 Kernel Released, Just Another Update

Release announcement by Linus Torvalds

By the way, I updated my ubuntu MATE 15.04 today.



Unfortunately the issues are still exists. You have to install some old Xorg packages to get a working X11. The ubuntu MATE 15.04 desktop has some problems with systemd. You have to install upstart to get a full functional ubuntu MATE 15.04 desktop. If you want to use 3D acceleration you will have to install the unofficial Mesa. I created a package with all debs and Mesa libs for a downgrade four months ago.

Download: Xorg_and_unofficial_Mesa_for_ubuntu_MATE_15.04_AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.gz

But ... It looks like the xserver-xorg-core 1.17.2-1 fixed the xorg issues on PowerPC machines! This should come downstream to Ubuntu soon.


Rgds,

Christian

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
  • ubuntu MATE 15.04 support
  • Debian 8 support
  • Linux kernel icon for OS4.1 by Tommysammy


Download: vmlinux-4.2-rc3-AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.bz2

PLEASE test the RC3.

Thanks in advance.

A new RC is available for testing. :)

New:

Linux 4.2-rc6: The Kernel Is Settling Down, 4.2 Final Likely In Two Weeks - phoronix

The release announcement

Download: vmlinux-4.2-rc6-AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.bz2

Additionally, I tested the ubuntu MATE 15.10 Alpha 2 PowerPC ISO in a virtual Power  Mac G3 beige  (QEMU/KVM). It boots and works. I have found one issue.  The ubuntu MATE Welcome utility doesn't work. I think it's a WebKit  issue, isn't it? On my AMIGA one X1000 the Welcome utility doesn't work  either.



PLEASE test the RC6 and ubuntu MATE 15.10 Alpha 2 PowerPC.

Cheers,

Christian

Hi All,

Quote from: Linus Torvalds
So this may be the last RC, and it might not be. It will depend on whether anything more comes up next week, and how good I feel about things come next Sunday.


Download: vmlinux-4.2-rc7-AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.bz2

New:

Linux 4.2-rc7 Kernel Released - phoronix.com

Release announcement by Linus

Furthermore, I can confirm that WebKit is fixed in ubuntu MATE 15.10. Midori and ubuntu MATE Welcome work without any problems. Many thanks to the developers for their hard work! I appreciate it very much.



Link to the bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1274167

I'm very happy. :)

Cheers,

Christian

Linux 4.2-rc8 Kernel Released: Official Release Pushed Back

By the way, I have broken the record of the Glxgears values.

Fedora 17 PPC64 with kernel 4.2-rc8 has the best glxgears values I have ever seen on the X1000.



The best values before were on Lubuntu 12.04.5 with Mesa 8.0.4:

Code: [Select]
christian@AmigaoneX1000:~$ vblank_mode=0 glxgears
