Fantastic! Thanks a lot for testing! I will add the QEMU support to the RC5. :-)

Hi All,

Linus Torvalds has released the RC5 of kernel 4.17. I compiled this RC for the X5000 and X1000 today.

New:


Download: vmlinux-4.17-rc5-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000.tar.gz

You can boot the X5000 kernel in a virtual P5020DS machine with the following command:

Code: Select all
qemu-system-ppc64 -M ppce500 -cpu e5500 -m 2048 -initrd /home/christian/Downloads/slitaz25.gz -nographic -kernel /home/christian/Downloads/vmlinux-4.17-rc5-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000/X5000/uImage-4.17 -net nic,vlan=0,model=e1000 -net user,vlan=0 -machine dt_compatible=fsl,,P5020DS -append "root=/dev/ramdisk"


You can also boot it with the MPC8544DS machine:

Code: Select all
qemu-system-ppc64 -M mpc8544ds -cpu e5500 -m 2048 -initrd /home/christian/Downloads/slitaz25.gz -nographic -kernel /home/christian/Downloads/vmlinux-4.17-rc5-AmigaOne_X1000_X5000/X5000/uImage-4.17 -net nic,vlan=0,model=e1000 -net user,vlan=0 -machine dt_compatible=fsl,,P5020DS -append "root=/dev/ramdisk"

I cross compiled these kernels on my PC today so please test these on your AmigaOnes.

Thanks,
Christian

Hi All,

I compiled the RC5 of kernel 4.17 without corenet generic support today. ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS PowerPC boots in a virtual machine with an e5500 CPU!!!!!!!!! (Thanks to Thomas Huth)

Screenshot of ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS PowerPC in a virtual QEMU ppce500 machine with an e5500 CPU:

QEMU command:

Code: Select all
qemu-system-ppc64 -M ppce500 -cpu e5500 -m 2048 -nographic -kernel /home/christian/Downloads/uImage-4.17-without_corenet -drive file=/home/christian/Dokumente/ubuntu_MATE_16.04.3_LTS_PowerPC_QEMU/ubuntu_MATE_16.04_PowerPC.img,index=0,if=virtio -net nic,vlan=0,model=e1000 -net user,vlan=0 -append "rw root=/dev/vda3"


Could you please test the RC5 without corenet generic support on your X5000? I would like to know if it boots and works on your X5000.

Download: uImage-4.17-without_corenet

Thanks,
Christian
