But with kernel 3.13.0 and radeon.dpm=0, Xorg works with the framebuffer driver and with only 8 colors.


Really? That looks very nice for 8 colours.

Better than my 8 colour Workbench ever did.

@Spectre660

I cannot find DiskImage anywhere in System or Utilities but found in C:

If I try to run it I get a window saying 'DiskImage: required argument missing'

Is there a tool within workbench I can delete this mounted image?

Whatever I try to do it says device is write protected, I need a passkey to unlock it!

Hi Spectre660,

Thanks a lot for this great release! I have tested the kernel 3.15 final with Lubuntu 14.04 LTS and with openSUSE 13.1 on my Sam440ep-Flex. And they work very well with the new kernel. On openSUSE I use the fbdev driver so that I have the right colors on my desktop. I can't configure my network chip with YaST but with dhcpcd eth1 I have internet access.



I have uploaded your new kernels.

Kernel 3.15.0 final for the Sam440ep( Flex): Sam440ep-3.15.0.tar.gz
Kernel 3.15.0 final for the Sam460ex( Lite): Sam460ex-3.15.0.tar.gz

Cheers,

Christian

Both of them freezes during the "installing base system" phase on my 460. Any ideas what could be wrong, or what to try next?

Located this old post with your configuration.
You could try booting the Ubuntu live on Acube's website if you still have a Radeon HD4650 card. Your ram would be my first suspect .Unless you have an issue burning .isos or reading the installer CD's .
This is the ram that Acube sell for the Sam460ex.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134770

You could try to download and burn the iso on a different computer .
