    @xeno
    Have you an answer!!??




    I think it works on the X5000/40 but I haven't tried it yet. I need another graphics card for MorphOS on the X5000/40.

    Unfortunately on my X5040 Uboot don’t support MorphOS. Is Uboot the problem!!!???
    Stile Ubuntu
    Sorry for my bad english.

    What’s the version of your Uboot?
    MorphOS is Amiga done right! :-)
    MorphOS NG will be AROS done right! :-)

    Hi All,

    Happy New Year 2021! Many thanks for the great update! I was able to update to MorphOS 3.15 on my AmigaOne X5000/20 today. I will test the new version in the next days.

    A-EON AmigaOne X5000 Update Instructions

    You will need a 500MB or larger USB disk

    Prepare the USB Disk

    Copy the image to a USB disk

    Linux Instructions

    With your system powered on, insert a USB disk that is at least 500MB into a USB port
    Determine the /dev path to your USB disk using one of the below methods:
    - In a terminal as su or sudo, enter "fdisk -l"
    - In a terminal as su or sudo, enter "parted -l"
    - Check the GParted menu in the upper-right corner

    These instructions assume the /dev path to your USB disk is /dev/sdz; however, your actual /dev path is likely to be different - use the actual /dev path to your USB disk

    In a terminal as su or sudo, enter the below command:

    Code:
    dd if=/path/to/morphos-3.15-hybrid.hdimg of=/dev/sdz


    where "/dev/sdz" is the /dev path to your USB disk

    NOTE: Do not attempt to copy the image to a specific partition - you need to enter the /dev path to the disk, not to a partition (use "/dev/sdz", not "/dev/sdz2")

    Mac Instructions

    With your system powered on, insert a USB disk that is at least 500MB into a USB port

    Open the Terminal app in Applications > Utilities
    Determine the /dev path to your USB disk by entering the below command:

    Code:
    diskutil list


    These instructions assume the /dev path to your USB disk is /dev/disk9; however, your actual /dev path is likely to be different - use the actual /dev path to your USB disk

    Enter the below command:

    Code:
    dd if=/path/to/morphos-3.15-hybrid.hdimg of=/dev/disk9


    where "/dev/disk9" is the /dev path to your USB disk

    Windows Instructions

    With your system powered on, insert a USB disk that is at least 500MB into a USB port.
    Download "USB Image Tool" from alexpage.de

    Open USB Image Tool

    On the left panel, select your USB disk
    Click the "Restore" button and select the MorphOS disk image


    Boot to MorphOS

    Begin with your A-EON AmigaOne X5000 system powered down and insert the USB disk into a USB port - remove any other USB disks that are plugged in.

    Power on your system and press ESC when the boot animation starts to load the U-Boot menu.

    Choose "Command Line" from the U-Boot menu

    Type the following commands:

    Code:
    usb reset

    Code:
    bootmorphos


    After selecting the language and keymap please select "Installation ..."

    Choose "Update Installation"

    Choose the MorphOS volume and the button "Update".

    After that please shutdown MorphOS (Ambient - Shutdown... - Shutdown) and remove the MorphOS USB stick.

    Please start the AmigaOne X5000 and the new MorphOS 3.15 will boot automatically.

    Cheers,
    Christian

    Has dual booting been resolved for the AmigaOne X5000/20 yet? I want to use MorphOS and AmigaOS 4.1 on my X5000 with a modern GPU that supports most features.

    The triumvirate of OSes that can run on the X5000 (OS4.1FE, MorphOS, linux) still lack a fully featured common GPU implementation.

    And will lack in the future.
    Is theoretically possible, that MorphOS and AmigaOs will have support for the same more modern cards, but I think linux will never have it.
    There is a bug in amdgpu PPC big-endian version, and new improvements focuses on little-endian.

    But who knows, maybe I'm wrong and someone will be dealing with decades old things from which he has no profit, except joy ;-)

    Personally I’m not interested in running Linux on the X5000. I have plenty of other machines I can run Linux on. It would be really nice to dual boot MorphOS and AmigaOS 4.1 on the X5000 with a newish GPU. Or even better the architecture shift solution finally arrives for MorphOS. I understand OS development is hard work, so I guess good things come to those who wait.

    I dont know exactly - I know that Nvidia Nouveau have problem with kernel page size, custom kernel with 4kb page is needed on big-endian. I was playing with this when I had FX4500 inside my Quad.
    Regarding the amdgpu I know only that it doesn't works on big-endian ;-), thus we must use radeon, i.e. we are limited to northern island and lower cards.

    > we are limited to northern island and lower cards.

    It's more complicated than that because the actual GPU microarchitecture line doesn't run along the graphics card family line. The Northern Islands (HD6000) family of cards also contains such with TeraScale 3 GPU (HD69x0) that isn't really supported by MorphOS. Likewise, the Southern Islands (HD7000) family of cards also contains such with TeraScale 2 GPU (HD7670 and below), which are supported by MorphOS. Even higher-numbered cards such as HD8000 family up to HD8490, and Sea Islands (Rx 200) family up to R5 235 have supported TeraScale 2 GPU.
    Btw, there's some ambiguity whether the names "Evergreen", "Northern Islands", "Southern Islands" etc. denote graphics cards families (HD5000, HD6000, HD7000 etc.) or GPU microarchitecture generations (TeraScale 2, TeraScale 3, GCN1 etc.). As you can see I assume the former, but even if assuming the latter, MorphOS support would be limited to Evergreen, not Northern Islands.

    Generally I think it is a better solution to get a setup that can run MorphOS right now than to wait for some support that may or may not arrive.

    Of course this is something that users with specific setups don't want to hear, and of course it is inconvenient if you can't have best of the both (or multiple) worlds easily in your system.

    We really need to focus on things that give most benefit for all users, not just some rather small subset of users of one particular system/setup. We also look at the registration numbers of specific models to see where the focus should be put. Before anyone asks, yes, we do understand that lacking driver support might not encourage registrations.

    Please don't read too much into this comment. It is not an official statement of any kind, just a friendly reminder that while some things would be great to have (from your point of view), it still might not happen anytime soon, if at all. You could be waiting for a very long time (if not forever).
