X5000 4.9.35 Kernel .
Removed the Gameport support as it that caused an oops with a Sound blaster Live sound card.
Remember to install the modules for support for bluetooth etc .

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

@Spectre660

Is it possible to use your ramdisk installers (Debian 8 and Ubuntu 16.04) also for installation from a .iso file? What file should be used in that case as a source for each of these distros? I am asking this because I have a slow internet connection, and it would be more practical to download the installation source on a USB disk using another machine with better connection.

For Ubuntu 16.04 There is my live usb with Xeno74's alternate installation script.
viewtopic.php?f=58&t=3577

Debian will need a need ramdisk for installation from CD/DVD . I will do one for you .
You can download the Debian 8.8.0 DVD with your faster connection .

@Roland

Debian 8 DVD install ramdisk.
(Only tested that it boots and looks for the DVD. as well as that the partitioner works.
Used an exteral usb dvd drive)

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxoZd ... Wtzdkt6eUk
You need the Debian 8 powerpc DVD as well .
https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/arch ... -DVD-1.iso

Copy the ramdisk to a Fat32 formatted thumb drive with your kernel of choice and cyrus_5020.dtb


boot the installer with the U-boot options below to install .
Of course remember to put the Debian 8 powerpc DVD into your DVD drive before.
EDIT: just tested that you can also dd the debian 8 .iso to a USB thumbdrive

usb reset
setenv bootargs root=/dev/ramdisk mem=3500M radeon.pcie_gen2=1
fatload usb 0:1 1000000 uImage-cyrus
fatload usb 0:1 1c00000 cyrus_5020.dtb
fatload usb 0:1 2000000 uRamdisk_Debian_8_DVD-1
bootm 1000000 2000000 1c00000

I had finally the opportunity to test your DVD installer! There seems to be some problem in booting of it... The first two bootm modules are run normally, but the third which starts with the line "## Flattened Device Three...", stops after the following message: "Loading Device Three to 03fe5000, end 03fff577... OK". After that, nothing happens. If I wait some time and then press enter a few times, there is some activity on the DVD drive, just like it would be loading something during a couple of minutes, but there is not anything else happening, and no messages the screen.

BTW, I tested also the earlier net-installer version of uRamdisk, but it stops at the same stage, with the same "Loading Device Three... OK" message on screen.

How should the boot process normally go on...?

@Roland

Sounds like an issue with the kernel.
Can you try with my 4.12 kernel below .

It was indeed a kernel issue! With 4.12 I was able to boot the installer and finish the installation. Thank you :-).

Then to the next step... How should I now run Debian from this new installation?

@ Roland

Set up your U-Boot variables (Change the /dev/sda8 in the example to point to your Debian partition)
Code: Select all
setenv usb1 "usb reset;fatload usb 0:1 1000000 uImage-cyrus;fatload usb 0:1 1c00000 cyrus_5020.dtb;bootm 1000000 - 1c00000"
setenv debian1 "setenv 'bootargs root=/dev/sda8 rootdelay=1 mem=3500M' ;run usb1"
saveenv

You only need to do the setup above once.
From now on to start Debian from the U-Boot shell
Code: Select all
run debian1
