Hi All,

I'd like to start the testing phase for the future kernel 4.00 (3.20). We don't know which version number the new kernel will have. There is a voting about the new version number on Linus Torvalds' Google Plus site.

Link: https://plus.google.com/+LinusTorvalds/posts/jmtzzLiiejc

Quote Linus Torvalds:

Quote:

So, I made noises some time ago about how I don't want another 2.6.39 where the numbers are big enough that you can't really distinguish them.

We're slowly getting up there again, with 3.20 being imminent, and I'm once more close to running out of fingers and toes.

I was making noises about just moving to 4.0 some time ago. But let's see what people think.

So - continue with v3.20, because bigger numbers are sexy, or just move to v4.0 and reset the numbers to something smaller?


Please vote!

Anyway the merge window have been opened this week and it were added a lot of new source code for the kernel 4.00 (3.20).

For example source code for PowerPC: http://www.phoronix.com and 3.20 POWER pull request

I created a new patch for the kernel 4.00 (3.20) yesterday.

Download: nemo_4.00-1.patch.zip

And here is the kernel config:

nemo_4.00.0alpha1.config.zip

I had compiled the GIT version of kernel 4.00 (3.20) and then I tested it. It boots without any problems with Debian Sid and Lubuntu 12.04.5. But unfortunately X11 doesn't start on ubuntu MATE 15.04.

And here is the download of the kernel 4.00 (3.20) alpha 1: vmlinux-4.00.0-alpha1-AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.bz2

PLEASE test the alpha1.





Cheers,

Christian

"But unfortunately X11 doesn't start on ubuntu MATE 15.04."

For me, it boots well under MATE 15.04.
Sound, 3D work.
The only very annoying problem is that my network doesn't work anymore (OK with 3.19 kernel)
EDIT : PA6T_ETH embedded network card works well, I only have problem with my RTL8139 network card

Thank you very much for testing the alpha 3.

I had compiled the alpha 4 and then I tested it with SliTaz 25.



Quote:
ramdisk -z -addr=0x24000000 -fatfs cf0:slitaz25.gz


Quote:
boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-4.00


My Realtek RTL8139 network card works without any problems with the alpha 4 and SliTaz 25.

Download kernel 4.00 alpha 4: vmlinux-4.00.0-alpha4-AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.bz2



PLEASE test the alpha 4.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,

Christian

Hi All,

Linus Torvalds has decided to rename the Linux 3.20 kernel to Linux 4.0. Torvalds released Linux 4.00-rc1 today. I compiled the RC1 for our AMIGA one X1000 today.

New: Linux-4.0-rc1-Kernel-Released - phoronix.com

Download: vmlinux-4.00.0-rc1-AMIGA_one_X1000.tar.bz2



Please test the RC1.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,

Christian

Srtest tested the RC1 of kernel 4.00 with Lubuntu 15.04 yesterday.

Quote Srtest:

Quote:
Kernel 4.00 RC1 boots ok, although somewhat slower than the blazing 3.19. Here is a desktop pic. You can see the nice colors on GLX gears test, VLC playback and STK while there are wrong colors on the FF start page. Strange isn't it?




@Srtest: Thank you for testing!

I also test Debian Sid PowerPC. Iceweasel 33.1-1 has right colors. Unfortunately iceweasel 35.0.1-1 is only for amd64 and i386 available currently.
