Hi All,

New week, new RC. :D

New:

Download: vmlinux-4.5-rc6-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

Today, I tested QEMU/KVM with the RC6 on ubuntu MATE 16.04 PowerPC. I successfully booted the Beta 1 of Lubuntu 16.04 PowerPC on a virtual Power Mac G3.



Cheers,

Christian

Hi All,

Linus Torvalds officially released the final version of the kernel 4.5 this morning. :)

The past two months were very exciting because we had to fix some issues and we tested a lot. We had 19 test versions!!!!
Darren solved the problem with the P.A. Semi Ethernet with the kernel config option PPC_PASEMI_IOMMU_DMA_FORCE. We don't need the source code for the P.A. Semi Ethernet in the Nemo patch anymore. I removed all these source code in the Nemo patch and then I activated the option CONFIG_PPC_PASEMI_IOMMU_DMA_FORCE in the kernel config.
We had a lot of problems with new Radeon graphics cards. I added the new byte swap patch by Alex Deucher to the kernel. Later we removed the byte swap code for Radeon firmwares from the Nemo patch because this code has been added to the RC2.
I removed some firmwares for SI and newer graphics cards with the old format (upper case names) because there were some problems with them. Additionally I removed all the BTRFS checks and debug options from the kernel config because there was a problem with mounting BTRFS volumes.

Many thanks to all for testing the alphas and release candidates.
