Please test the live DVD.


yeap. I just tested it and boots just fine.
  • Sound works fine
  • lan works fine

I wonder, is it installable by the installers at the desktop?

Fantastic!!!! It would be really nice if you can try out the installers. Do you have another hard disk in your X1000? I recommend to install ubuntu MATE on a seperate hard disk.

Many thanks for testing! :-)

Hi All,

Could you please try to install ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 LTS with the alternative installer script? I'd like to know if it works for you.

Thanks in advance,

Had to give up on the installation. It started okay (or so I thought) and then it became extremely slow when it reached the Libreoffice files. It seemed to go on forever so I had to stop it.

I am looking for testers for testing the X1000 ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 LTS live DVD version 3.

Download: ubuntu-mate-16.04.1-desktop-powerpc-x1000-3.iso

Please test the live DVD.

Hello Christian,
i tried the live DVD version 3 two days ago and booted at the first time: no problems at all (WOW WOW WOW , i was very happy).

BUT

today i can boot anymore, it stops to the following message:
"booting Linux via __start() ..."

Same hardware configuration, same commands.
What could be the problem?

AmigaONE XE G4 833MHz - 2GB RAM - Radeon9200 256MB
AmigaONE X1000 - 2GB RAM - Radeon R9-280X 3GB + Radeon HIS4670 1GB DDR3 - AmigaOS4.1

I tried both cases: with using OS4.1 before and without using OS4.1 before. Same behaviour.

I think it's a problem with my DVD sata drive and Nemo board.
I copied the "powerpc64" directory from live DVD to the CompactFlash and booted successfully from there.
So it seems that Linux and OS4.1 can read from DVD but initrd and vmlinux can not be loaded easily.

Hi AlfredOne,

Good to know. Many thanks for testing!

Have a lot of fun with the live DVD. Would you like to install it?
