Hi All,

I compiled an additional RC4 because of the PowerPC updates and the new Nemo patch.

Hi All,

Darren has created a new Nemo patch with a lot of improvements. :-)

Darren wrote:This patch has turned out to be better than I thought. I can now boot kernel
4.10 with out the following 2 files patched:

arch/powerpc/kernel/head_64.S
arch/powerpc/kernel/setup-common.c

..and it finds the bootcpu so it boots a little quicker.

I've attached a new nemo patch for you to try. This has some other minor
changes as I've now submitted the ATI ide and sigmatel patches to the
relevant parties. The ati patches are now queued for libata-4.11, the
sigmatel looks like it needs some clarification, which I will try to sort
out.

Mpe has indicated I need to submit the i2c somewhere else, I'll sort that
shortly.

Getting closer to not needing a nemo patch, which would be nice.


Download: nemo_4.10-3.patch

Many thanks to Darren. I will compile the RC5 again with Darren's new patch.

Cheers,
Christian

Hi Darren,

Many many thanks for your work! :-) Well done!

I successfully patched with your new Nemo patch and compiled the RC5 again today.

It boots and works with ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC and with Debian Sid/experimental PowerPC without any problems. I tested the following things:

  • Hardware 3D acceleration works with an AMD Radeon HD6870 (tested with DOOM 3 and SuperTuxKart 0.8.1-2)
  • Sound works (MP3 files, web radio etc)
  • LAN works (Realtek RTL-8139)
  • WLAN works (FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick N)
  • "PR" KVM works (QEMU guest: Mac OS X 10.4.11 Tiger)
  • Compiz works
  • YouTube HD videos work with ViewTube
  • Internal CF card works
  • pas_shutdown works

@All

I released the new RC5-2 with Darren's updates for testing today.

New:

PLEASE test the RC5-2.

FYI: powerpc: Add missing error check to prom_find_boot_cpu()
