@monkey01

see if any of these solve the problem.
Start with the USB thumb drive.

i try it in the afternoon. but it is strange that partman from the debian8 ramdisk have no problem with
existing partitions.

The most probable culprit may be the SSD.
This is what I don't have in either of my machines.
You could disconnect the power from it and try the installation .

That is great news.

So we found two issues .
The CMI gameport and the SSD .

Hi one question :

direct rendering: Yes
GLX_MESA_multithread_makecurrent, GLX_MESA_query_renderer,
GLX_MESA_multithread_makecurrent, GLX_MESA_query_renderer,
Extended renderer info (GLX_MESA_query_renderer):
OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
GL_NV_conditional_render, GL_NV_depth_clamp, GL_NV_light_max_exponent,
GL_OES_element_index_uint, GL_OES_fbo_render_mipmap,
ricardo@X5000:~$

That is meaning i have no hardware accleration or? :(

Correct.

Radeon HD 7000 and Rx 200 (rx-250 and up) only do software rendering under Linux powerpc.
I am using a Radeon HD 6570 on My X5000 for now for the best Linux experience .(I do have a Radeon HD7750 to switch to when needed)
These cards do harware rendering under Linux .
My Sam460ex has a Radeon HD7750 so if I need to test any AmigaOS 4.1 3D it is not an issue for me.

image is of a 512mb SD card so not too big.
Have only only checked that it boots ok but have not tried an actual installation.

You should probably check if portage (emerge) runs as well. When I installed Gentoo on my X5000 using stages from gentoo.org, I had the problem that portage triggered some code in libm that used instructions not available on e5500. Recompiling glibc locally fixed the issue, but since emerge wasn't working I couldn't just "emerge -1 glibc", but had to do it manually first...

Tips for make.conf:
Code: Select all
CFLAGS="-O2 -pipe -mcpu=e5500 -mno-altivec"
USE="-altivec"

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.
