A1-X1000: Linux Kernel 4.3
« on: September 01, 2015, 10:59:25 AM »
The merge window is open. Linus Torvalds added a lot of source code today.

Link: Linux git log

I released the alpha1 of kernel 4.3 with the new source code from the git.

Hi All,

Linus Torvalds added a lot of source code again today. Therefore I compiled a new test version for our AmigaONE X1000.

Download: vmlinux-4.3-alpha2-AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.bz2

Unfortunately the size of our Nemo patch increased a bit because of the code changes in the interrupt system.

I released the alpha4 yesterday.

Download: vmlinux-4.3-alpha4-AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.bz2

New: All PowerPC updates for the kernel 4.3 (Merge tag 'powerpc-4.3-1')

Today I released the alpha5.

The kernel developers added the DRM fbdev emulation as default. I don't know if it works with every Radeon HD graphics card.

Download: vmlinux-4.3-alpha5-AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.bz2

PLEASE PLEASE test the alpha4 and 5. I'd like to know if they work for you.

Hi All,

I released the alpha7 for our motherboards with P.A. Semi PA6T-1682M microprocessors for testing. Linus Torvalds added a lot of source code last night.

New: Linux git log

Download: vmlinux-4.3-alpha7-AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.bz2

Further information about motherboards with P.A. Semi PA6T-1682M microprocessors:

  • Electra: First development/eval board. Funky USB on localbus, plenty
    of PCI-e. Two GigE, one 10GigE XAUI. CompactFlash and IDE on localbus
    too. Usually shipped with a PCI-e SATA card and a USB card.

  • Chitra: Second edition dev/eval board. Moved SATA and USB on-board,
    and removed some of the localbus hardware. Might have routed three
    GigE out instead of 2.

  • Athena: Never released board with a smaller package chip, there's
    only a few of these around. It's similar to Chitra, and the silicon is the same.

  • Nemo: Released as AmigaONE X1000. With co-processor: "Xena" 500 MHz XCore XS1-L2 124 SDS
    and SB600 southbridge.


Cheers,

Christian

Hi All,

Here is the last alpha. Next week I'll release the first release candidate.

New: Linux git log

Quote from: Linus Torvalds
On the filesystem side, the bulk of the changes (in lines of code) is the removal of the ext3 filesystem (with ext4 remaining to support ext3 layouts - but the separate ext3 codebase is gone).


I can confirm, that the ext4 driver works with my openSUSE 11.1 ext3 partition.



PLEASE test the RC1.

I released the kernel 4.3 RC4 today.

New:

Linux 4.3-rc4 Kernel Released: Adds A New & Better String Copy Function - phoronix

4.3-rc4 release announcement

Note:

This kernel use the older interrupt management system from the kernel 4.1 because the new system doesn't work with the AMD/ATI SB600 south bridge.

PLEASE use the kernel 4.1 if you want a stable and reliable kernel for your AmigaONE X1000. The kernels 4.3 and 4.2 are only for experienced users who want to test some new features.
