Hi All,

I compiled the alpha4 with the first PowerPC updates for testing today. Additionally I have added a kernel without the networking updates for a working PA Semi PWRficient Gigabit Ethernet.

New:


Issue:

  • The QorIQ DPAA Ethernet driver works but unfortunately it losts the connection after a while.

Download: vmlinux-4.16-alpha4-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

Please test the alpha4.

Thanks,
Christian

FYI:

Cloning the Linux Git without version history:

Code: Select all
git clone --depth=1 git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git a


With --depth=1 you download only the latest version of the Linux git repository. This saves storage space. ;-)

Hi Skateman,

The latest Radeon firmwares are already included in the Linux Kernel. You need the Radeon firmware directory only for kernel compiling.

Ahhh i see... so the Git Clone is only for having the files for kernel compiling :-)

Is there a possibility that there is Radeon Hardware support with those new Firmwares? (for my R 250)
I will test it anyway tonight.
