I haven't used Fedora for ages.

But both packages (jsoncpp, libwebp) are available for Fedora:

You could also take a look at

No idea, if it's up-to-date.

The images are untouched since release.

This proceeding isn't needed since Kernel 5.16.12. But Kernel 5.16 / 5.17 has another issue.

Where are you located?

... My idea was to identify if we should focus on 1 or 2 distributions in order to provide them with a good support and with a good user experience (installer, graphical desktop ...). ...

Good idea. But how would you reach that goal?

This is so weird. You're right. If the Vega works in Petitboot the the card is okay.
If you only use Vega (with disable jumper active) does it work then?
IIRC, the Kernel on the Live-Image is 5.13, right?
The Vega GPU you bought from Raptor? If so, what does Raptor response about the issue?

Edit: You could also try the older Void Live-Image from 2020 with Kernel 5.4. But both Kernels 5.13 and 5.4 should work. I will ping tle on Twitter. Maybe he has an idea.

On Void Speed Dreams is available. I will try out the next days and add it to the wiki as well :)

I have it. Vega doesn't work with a 64K Kernel page size:

Anyway, it should work with Void OOTB. Void uses 4K Kernel pagesize.

Sadly, I see no error. I would try the Live-Image of Void Linux.

Code: [Select]
modprobe.blacklist=ast video=offb:off amdgpu.aspm=0
to the Kernel commandline and start the Live-Image.

It should work out of the box. If that fails also I would guess that the GPU has a failure.

This is weird, because tle has or had a Vega, too and it worked. Also on Fedora,47.0.html

User Zone / Re: Radeon HD7750 working on 64K PAGESIZE.

AFAIK, the 7750 doesn't use amdgpu but the Radeon driver. The pagesize issue only affects amdgpu in combination with Navi. Which should already be fixed, too.

Unfortunately, there are only a few distributions left.

Void Linux will still support PPC64 big-endian in the future. Support for PPC32 will be dropped. But it's just a matter of maintainers.

Adelie Linux is also very good. Unfortunately, it has become a bit quiet around Adelie since Awilfox left.

Fienix is also supposed to be very good.

Debian still supports PowerPC, but only as sid. Funnily enough, 90% of the posts on the PowerPC Debian mailing list are about big-endian :-)

Gentoo also still supports big-endian.

Then there's Bedrock Linux, CruxPPC, Arch Linux and MintPPC. And there are also Ubuntu remix variants maintained by Wicknix.

And OpenSUSE Tumbleweed can also be installed on G5s, X1000, X5000 with a trick.

All distributions have in common that the bugs concerning big-endian are no longer fixed. Moreover, the computers are more than 15 years old.

But maybe there will be cheaper PowerPC systems in the future.
