Without supplying the '-p' parameter amiboot didn't output anything at all, it just froze the amiga directly after entering the command.Even with '-d'?
Yes, even with "-d", no output is printed, after entering the command ("amiboot -d root=/dev/hda5" for example) and pressing "enter" the system freezes immediately.
I can't reproduce it on ARAnyM with 3.1.4.Call Trace: [<0000ffff>] mm_release+0xa1/0xa4 [<002b84fa>] topology_sysfs_init+0x0/0x1e Seems to prove that, do you thinkBut this indeed looks like the same problem. Are you using a Debianized 3.1.4 source tree?
I just checked again, yes, you're right, i totally forgot i patched my source tree with the Debian patches, sorry :-(
http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-m68k/msg04709.html would solve the issue?Yes, that should fix this problem.
It really did! Thank you for pointing me in the right direction, now i got sysfs and udev again.
You cannot rely on that message. It just assumes A2000/A500/A600 etc. have an A2000-style clock chip. But on all but A2000 the RTC is optional. BTW, I also asked Jens Schönfeld.
After activating CONFIG_RTC_CLASS and CONFIG_RTC_DRV_MSM6242 in the kernel and finally being able to get the device nodes created automatically by udev, the RTC now works... somewhat. 8 out of 10 reads from the RTC (via hctosys inside the kernel at startup, hwclock from userspace or cat one of the special files inside /sys/class/rtc) return successfully, but the other 2 return an ioctl()-error. I forgot which exactly, i'll go upstairs to the Amiga later and write it down. The PCMCIA-network still doesn't work, i'll recompile the kernel with CONFIG_APNE=y (instead of m), maybe that will work.
