Welcome

This page details the installation process of Linux distributions on the AmigaONE X5000 and AmigaOne A1222

AmigaOne X5000 Linux Guide

AmigaOne A1222 Linux Guide

The following guide gives instructions on downloading the latest Linux images and installing them to USB flash drives or hard disk drives for use on the AmigaOne A1222 computer.


Installing Debian 8 on a USB Flash Drive

1. Download the image from the following link: Tabor Debian 8 PowerPC SPE

Please use the following login details to download the file:

User Name: tabor
Password: amigaone


2. Decompress the downloaded image with 7-Zip


3. Copy it with dd on Linux or with the USB image Tool on Windows to a USB flash drive.

For example with Linux:

dd if=“Tabor_debian_8_powerpcspe_5“ of=“disk drive ID“


4. To boot Linux image from the USB flash drive, insert the USB flash drive into the A1222. Next enter the following at the A1222> prompt (pressing enter after each line):

setenv bootargs root=/dev/sdb2 rootdelay=5
fatload usb 0:1 1000000 uImage.sdk17.2
fatload usb 0:1 2000000 tabor2.dtb
bootm 1000000 - 2000000


5. The login details are as follows:

Username of root has the password amigaone

Username of amigaone has the password amigaone


Installing Debian 8 on a Hard Drive

After trying out you could copy it with "dd" to a hard disc from your booted Debian. You don't need to create any partitions. You just need to copy the image with "dd" from the booted Debian to a hard disk.


1. Download the image from the following link: Tabor Debian 8 PowerPC SPE

Please use the following login details to download the file:

User Name: tabor
Password: amigaone


2. Decompress it with Xarchiver or Engrampa or use "Extract Here" in the context menu (right-click).


3. Copy it with “dd“ to a hard disk:

dd if=Tabor_debian_8_powerpcspe_5 of=“disk drive ID“. 

For example:

dd if=Tabor_debian_8_powerpcspe_5 of=/dev/sda.


4. After that, you could increase the Linux partition with GParted if you like.


5. To boot Linux image from the hard drive, enter the following at the A1222> prompt (pressing enter after each line):

setenv bootargs root=/dev/sda2
fatload usb 0:1 1000000 uImage.sdk17.2
fatload usb 0:1 2000000 tabor2.dtb
bootm 1000000 - 2000000

Or you could directly boot the kernel and the DTB file from a hard disk by entering the following at the A1222> prompt (pressing enter after each line):

setenv bootargs root=/dev/sda2
load sata 1:2 1000000 /boot/uImage.sdk17.2
load sata 1:2 2000000 /boot/tabor2.dtb
bootm 1000000 - 2000000
