Applications and Porting / Re: Wine patch to support PPC64
« on: August 31, 2020, 10:51:43 am »
Can somebody explain how it will be possible to execute Windows binaries via Wine on a ppc64le architecture (which has a different CPU instruction set than x86)? QEMU?

No way.

It's just the winelib port: a library which allows to compile some programs which use Win API. It cannot be used  to run  x86 binaries on the POWER.

It's mostly my ramblings of constantly almost having a useful build.

Thank you! Every information about progress of your work is interesting.

Slackware? Thank you very much for your effort!

I used the Slackware in the past (on intel and amd64 systems) and still thinking about return to it. It would be great to have it on my Blackbird...

Code: [Select]
[    19.961] (II) modeset(0): Disabling kernel dirty updates, not required.
[    35.360] (II) modeset(0): Allocate new frame buffer 1920x1200 stride
[    35.362] (EE) modeset(0): failed to set mode: Cannot allocate memory
[    35.376] (EE) modeset(0): failed to set mode: Invalid argument

I just tried to boot to the "rescue mode" of my Fedora (it is labelled "F30") and ... the 1920x1200 works.

If I boot with the F32 or the F31 kernel (5.6.8 or 5.6.7) then it does not work (1920x1080 is the maximum).

So can it be a kernel issue?

Is there possibly a risk of "overclocking"? Any documentation available that says wrong modelines do not destroy the AST2500?

I don't thing so. I didn't find any such statement.

Moreover, it still works in 1920x1080 (after three months in 1920x1200).

What modelines gives you the cvt command?

# 1920x1200 59.88 Hz (CVT 2.30MA) hsync: 74.56 kHz; pclk: 193.25 MHz
Modeline "1920x1200_60.00"  193.25  1920 2056 2256 2592  1200 1203 1209 1245 -hsync +vsync

# 1920x1080 59.96 Hz (CVT 2.07M9) hsync: 67.16 kHz; pclk: 173.00 MHz
Modeline "1920x1080_60.00"  173.00  1920 2048 2248 2576  1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync

# 1280x1024 59.89 Hz (CVT 1.31M4) hsync: 63.67 kHz; pclk: 109.00 MHz
Modeline "1280x1024_60.00"  109.00  1280 1368 1496 1712  1024 1027 1034 1063 -hsync +vsync

I'm sorry for late reply.

My X11 boot to 1920x1080 now. Then I have tried to changer resolution to 1280x1024 (it obviously worked) and then to 1920x1200 (blank screen).

The Xorg log file is (attached).

What's the problem in detail? Does 1080 resolution work?

Blank screen, monitor says "no signal". But 1080 works normally (I'm using it now). I had only the 1920x1200 in my Xorg configuration file soi I had to add the 1080 one to see at least something.
Now I have 1920x1080, 1920x1200, 1280x1024 configured (the 1920x are from Raptor Wiki) and I can go to 1280x1024 and back to 1920x1080 but when I trt the 1920x1200 the I got blank the abovementioned blank screen.


# 1920x1200 59.88 Hz (CVT 2.30MA) hsync: 74.56 kHz; pclk: 193.25 MHz
    Modeline       "1920x1200"  193.25  1920 2056 2256 2592  1200 1203 1209 1245 -hsync +vsync

I would be happy if somebody could confirm that these settings are working - I will add them then to the according Raptor wiki page.

It worked until yesterday update (but I think that the Fedora 31 updated just the kernel, not the Xorg?!).

Do you have similar experience?
