AmigaOne: Überarbeiteter Linux 2.6.8-Kernel
Unter dem Titellink wurde von Gerhard Pircher ein überarbeiteter Linux-Kernel der Version 2.6.8 für den AmigaOne veröffentlicht. Gleichfalls verfügbar ist ein Patch für das Quellkode-Paket derselben Kernel-Version für die Distribution Debian Sarge.

Ein überarbeiteter Kernel der Version 2.6.16.x soll voraussichtlich binnen der nächsten zwei Wochen fertiggestellt werden und auch Treiber für EHCI sowie den PC-Speaker enthalten.

Changes:
  • Highmem support is working: You can remove the memory limit in U-boot now
  • EHCI support removed: The EHCI driver doesn't work on the AmigaOne due to the non coherent cache DMA workaround and I was to lazy to backport a workaround which was contributed by Marcus Comstedt. Many thanks to him for this patch
  • DRI graphics drivers removed: These drivers were removed, thus you can enable the glx extension of the X server again
  • ISA bridge tweaks: Recently I experienced problems with USB on my A1, too. Therefore I tried to weak the settings of the VIA southbridge (to match the settings done by OS4). This seems to help a little bit, but after some time the system locks up again. I'm still not sure what the real problem is, but I guess it's either the unfixed CPU bug or an interrupt problem.
    Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a response from the (responsible) OS4 developer(s), so I can't really do anything about this. (I remember sg2 writing about a software problem with the i8259 PIC. I would be grateful, if he could enlighten me)
