@xeno74 Yep i have tried that.. but Xorg wont start. Took a look at the xorg.conf and looks fine... driver "radeon"

Tried to generate a new Xorg.conf by using.. Xorg -configure but this crashes as well.

@Roland i will take a look at your recipe.
(where also stated that the image was a partion image :-) ) Thats where i went wrong the first time.
After creating a linux ext 4 partition (sda1) and swap partition on the new SSD, i DDed the Fedora.img to the partition and all working.

Still a bummer that the fully supported Radeon R7 250 in OS4 (which i have also bought the drivers / software for) is driverless within Linux...

Hi Skateman,

Maybe glamor is the problem. Please rename the libglamoregl.so to libglamoregl.so.bak.

Code: Select all
sudo mv /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so.bak


After that restart your X5000.

Thanks,
Christian

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

After playing around with Fedora, the DPAA Network network issues like they exists within Ubuntu also occur with Fedora.
The behavior is quite the same with the running out of buffer space errors, and network traffic which dies.. Kernels 4.14 to 4.17 all show similar results.

I was just very anxious if it had to to with my Ubuntu installation in the first place or the Kernel.. Seems that is is Kernel related.

The freeBSD version for the X5000 which is using another kernel (as i have understood) is not having any DPAA network issues.. (if i recall correctly)
As posted by @chmeee "Most else works, and ethernet works really well, able to nearly saturate the gigabit link (limited only by the other end, I found, my G5 macs can't keep up with it).

I hope this helps."

Is there a way to compare these Kernels to see what might cause these DPAA Network issues.. ??
