Thank you to Sinan for the 4.10 RC1 kernel :-).

Unfortunately I have the same problem as with the 4.9 kernels above RC5. My R270X videocard is not supported.

My wish for the new year: I kernel with support for my R270X videocard and support for my Asus BT211 bluetooth dongle :-)

Thank you for making kernel update available. Could you provide instruction or give me a link to instructions on how to "install" the kernel update?

Hi Caseycullen,

Please copy the file uImage to a USB flash drive and boot from.

Booting the ubuntu MATE live USB:

Code: Select all
setenv bootargs root=/dev/ramdisk file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu-mate.seed boot=casper rootdelay=10 mem=3500M radeon.pcie_gen2=1
fatload usb 0:1 1000000 uImage
fatload usb 0:1 1c00000 cyrus_5020.dtb
fatload usb 0:1 2000000 uRamdisk
bootm 1000000 2000000 1c00000


Booting from an HD:

Code: Select all
setenv bootargs root=/dev/<your Linux partition for example: /dev/sda2> mem=3500M radeon.pcie_gen2=1
fatload usb 0:1 1000000 uImage
fatload usb 0:1 1c00000 cyrus_5020.dtb
bootm 1000000 - 1c00000


If you can boot the RC2 then it makes sense to copy the kernel modules directory 4.10.0-rc2-X5000-Sinan to /lib/modules.

Cheers,
Christian

Why doesn't your R9 270X work?

I have a kernel here that boots on mine, you can give that a try. Sorry no BT dongle though.

It's here if you want to give it a spin.

Note, I don't put anywhere near as much in my kernels as Christian does, but you should be able to extract the embedded config and build your own improved version from that.

Regards
Darren

Hi All,

The RC4 of kernel 4.10 is available for testing. :-)

Many thanks to Sinan for compiling the RC4 for the AmigaOne X5000. :-)

P.S. Turn down the volume if your Bluetooth speaker is making white noise.

Great :-D The RC4 version works on my setup. Still no 3D acceleration on my R9 270X thou. And bluetooth does not work with my dongle but that is not important.

Just a quick question: Should I copy all the included modules somewhere?
