Many thanks for ArcticFox! I successfully tested it on my AmigaOne X1000 today. (64-bit 1.8 GHz dual-core PWRficient PA6T-1682M PowerPC with AltiVec)

Those look cool and promising!

Unfortunately it doesn't work on our AmigaOne X5000. (Freescale P5020 CPU 2GHz, 64-bit e5500 dual-core PowerPC SoC without AltiVec)

Does it not work? build? what happens?

Did you compile it with G4/AltiVec compiler flags?

Yes, I did:

export CC="gcc -flax-vector-conversions -O3 -mcpu=7450 -mtune=7450 -maltivec -mabi=altivec -falign-loops=16 -falign-functions=16 -falign-labels=16 -falign-jumps=16" export CXX="g++ -flax-vector-conversions -fpermissive -O3 -mcpu=7450 -mtune=7450 -maltivec -mabi=altivec -falign-loops=16 -falign-functions=16 -falign-labels=16 -falign-jumps=16"
export LDFLAGS="-latomic"

I did not try without, I know that on Intel SSE2 is required


Hi Riccardo,

Thanks for your reply. We get the error message 'Illegal instruction' on the X5000. That means it doesn't start. Could you please compile it without AltiVec (-maltivec -mabi=altivec)?
