AmigaOne A1222 Debian 9 build

I am very sorry for the delay in posts from mid June to now. There have been several very good reasons for it.

First up, I recently lost my job through redundancy, and secondly I have not been well at all for the past few weeks too. I hope you can understand why I have been quiet!
Despite this, being quiet on this blog does not mean I have been idle. On the contrary, I have been working in my beta tester capacity on testing linux builds on the AmigaOne A1222 of late. 
As regular readers should be aware (as I mentioned it earlier this year), I am unfortunately not allowed to discuss AmigaOS4.1 testing on the AmigaOne A1222 as it is covered under NDA.
Linux testing is fine to discuss though. On the A1222, I upgraded my Debian 8 installation to the latest Debian 9 Sid build, following the substantial work of the A-EON Open source team members to get the PowerPCSPE version builds running 24/7 builds on a couple of A1222 systems to the very latest, still in development, linux builds!

Getting newest version linux kernel builds working on the A1222 (and X1000/X5000/Sam460) has been a priority also.

I have previously produced several articles in 2016 on initial building and testing on the A1222. If you want to do some catch up reading of my A1222 system (including Classic Amiga emulation) please check out these articles:

I was keen to try out the latest development linux versions on my A1222 with E-UAE to run Amiga systems, so I fired it up, changed my sources to the dev builds and run the apt-get dist-upgrade option.
I put up some photos of these upgrade results already for those following my Facebook profile...but I know not everyone uses it.
For everyone else who is not on Facebook, here is some screenshots from my AmigaOne A1222 of the latest Debian 9 sid build and 4.7.0RC2 kernel running JIT E-UAE with my Amiga 4000 AmigaOS 3.9 hard disk setup!
I also tested new linux kernels 4.4.6, 4.5.0 and the latest 4.7.0RC2 kernel too - they all work well on the A1222!

I even installed the Xfce4 desktop on the Debian 9 Sid build for a much nicer desktop than the default one - here it is running Pen Pal under Amiga 2000 emulation on E-UAE:
Getting this running well has been very satisfying, and the help of the A-EON Open source team with my questions has been invaluable - thanks guys for your patience!

Building of new PowerPCSPE version packages is still ongoing, and I look forward to trying out some other new things on the AmigaOne A1222 system I can share soon!
