I will test it anyway tonight.


The Radeon R7 250 should work but without hardware 3D acceleration.

@Xeno74

Iptables... ?

Just thinking out loud.... due to the network related issues... could the Iptables firewall within Ubuntu have something to do with this?

If i do an iptables -F to see the rules... this is the outcome..

root@X5000LNX:/home/skateman# iptables -L
modprobe: ERROR: ../libkmod/libkmod.c:586 kmod_search_moddep() could not open moddep file '/lib/modules/4.16-a6_A-EON_A1-X5000-10668-g3527799-dirty/modules.dep.bin'
modprobe: FATAL: Module ip_tables not found in directory /lib/modules/4.16-a6_A-EON_A1-X5000-10668-g3527799-dirty
iptables v1.6.0: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

Nope its not IPtables blocking traffic...

Completely uninstalled IPtables... but the DPAA ethernet issues stay...

Hi All,

I compiled the alpha7 for the X5000 and X1000 yesterday.

New:


Issue:

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

Download: vmlinux-4.16-alpha7-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

Screenshot of Lubuntu 16.04.3 Netbook version LTS PowerPC with the new kernel 4.16-alpha7:

Please test the alpha7.

Thanks,
Christian

DPAA Ethernet issues with the X5000 seem to have something to do with the ARP table ..

The ARP output ..

With a working connection my output is like this:

root@X5000LNX:/home/skateman# arp -n
Address HWtype HWaddress Flags Mask Iface
192.168.22.66 ether 08:5b:0e:fd:db:6a C eth3

When traffic has died... its like this

root@X5000LNX:/home/skateman# arp -n
Address HWtype HWaddress Flags Mask Iface
192.168.22.222 (incomplete) eth3
192.168.22.66 (incomplete) eth3

As you can see.. the Arp table is losing the HWtype and HW Mac address...

Anyone ..?? :-)

First things first :-)

Tonight i have to burn a new (old) Uboot version and insert this in my X5000. (thanks to instructions send by Amigakit)
When done i can extract the original MAC addresses from the hardware.
When done i can use my original MACs in the newer versions of Uboot.

I cannot live with not having my Original HWbased Mac addresses

You’re right. Maybe the old U-Boot version solves the issues and you don’t need to send your results to the mailing lists.

So i have got my Original hardware mac addresses for my AmigaOne X5000 :-) unfortunately this did not solve the problem yet.

I have send my ARP findings to the PowerPC dev mailing list... (as you might have noticed already )

To be continued ..
