A1-X1000: Linux Kernel 4.6
« on: March 15, 2016, 09:49:12 AM »
Hi,

Linus has already pulled the latest set of patches from some branches for the kernel 4.6, so I released the alpha1 for testing today.

Download: vmlinux-4.6-alpha1-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

Regards,
Christian

Linus Torvalds added some new source code for the kernel 4.6 to the Linux Git last night.

New: Linux Git log

I created the alpha2 from the latest Git source code today.

Download: vmlinux-4.6-alpha2-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

Would you mind testing it? For me it would be interesting, if the P.A. Semi Ethernet works.

FYI: The old Nemo patch 4.5-9 doesn't work anymore. You need the new Nemo patch 4.6-1 instead.

Download: nemo_4.6-1.patch

Hi All,

I released the alpha3 without the kvm-pr kernel module today.

New:

Download: vmlinux-4.6-alpha3-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

I wasn't able to compile the kvm-pr kernel module because there is something wrong in the source code. I think the problem is in the latest KVM updates.

Link: Merge tag for-linus of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/kvm/kvm.

The kvm-pr kernel module from the alpha2 works without any problems. I tested it with Mac-on-Linux and Mac OS X Tiger yesterday.

I informed the developers about this problem via two mailing lists, today.

Links:

List kvm-ppc
List kvm-general



Cheers,

Christian

The Linux kernel 4.6 alpha5 is available for testing.

New:

Download: vmlinux-4.6-alpha5-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

Note: If you want to compile the kernel, then you have to patch the kernel source code with the Nemo patch. For the PR KVM support you have to patch the kernel source code with the kvm-pr patch additionally.

I successfully tested the new PR KVM with a virtual Power Mac G3 machine today.



Please test the alpha5.

Rgds,

Christian
