MNT ZZ9000 Drivers (Linux/m68k)

More Info:


Adjust the path to your Linux kernel sources in the Makefile before starting. On Debian you can install linux-headers-m68k to get the kernel headers and the necessary Module.symvers file.

Then you can build the drivers out of the tree with

$ make
make[1]: Entering directory '/usr/src/linux-source-5.4'
  CC [M]  git/zz9000-linux-m68k/zz9000_core.o
  LD [M]  git/zz9000-linux-m68k/zz9000.o
  CC [M]  git/zz9000-linux-m68k/zz9000_network.o
  CC [M]  git/zz9000-linux-m68k/zz9000_usb.o

  LD [M]  git/zz9000-linux-m68k/zz9000.ko
  CC [M]  git/zz9000-linux-m68k/zz9000_graphics.mod.o
  LD [M]  git/zz9000-linux-m68k/zz9000_graphics.ko
  CC [M]  git/zz9000-linux-m68k/zz9000_network.mod.o
  LD [M]  git/zz9000-linux-m68k/zz9000_network.ko
  CC [M]  git/zz9000-linux-m68k/zz9000_usb.mod.o
  LD [M]  git/zz9000-linux-m68k/zz9000_usb.ko
make[1]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/linux-source-5.4'

Now you can install the drivers with

make modules_install

Loading the drivers

You can load your drivers e.g. by creating a ZZ9000 specific file in /etc/modules-load.d:

sudo vi /etc/modules-load.d/zz9000.conf
# /etc/modules-load.d/zz9000
# Load ZZ9000 modules automatically at boot


options zz9000-graphics noaccel

On your next boot you should then see

Boot the kernel with video=amifb:off. The driver switches to 1280x720-60@16 by default, but supports all resolutions that the card supports (non-16bit modes currently untested)


The network driver currently expects the MAC address to be set up by AmigaOS already.


Only one USB drive is supported at the moment, and the drive can not be hot-plugged.
