Applications and Porting / Re: Porting Godot 4 to POWER9 and the Libre-SOC.

At least a port to PPC64le was discussed

GPU Compute / Accelerators / Re: Which GPU would *you* choose?
« on: August 21, 2021, 06:00:51 am »
I assume you already have these GCN1.0 GPUs? They should work. Just try them out.

Price-wise, all GPUs are bad at the moment. The best is still a GCN4.0 RX550.

Navi is more or less well supported since kernel 5.6.13.

RDNA GPUs are not supported at the moment.

Here you can find a good overview:

I dunno what the problem is. I never tried to install MAME.

@sharkcz should know this.

A while ago I installed the shortwave package from OpenSUSE on Fedora without a problem. So it works, as long as you have all dependencies installed, of course.

Blackbird / Re: [SELL] 2 x 8GB DDR4 ECC stock RAM
« on: August 05, 2021, 10:19:56 am »
On the Blackbird, I have 2666MHz modules as well and they are running at 2400MHz.
ClassicHasClass has a TalosII.

I can well understand your displeasure. My first contact with Linux was with my Blackbird. At the beginning it was really hard to understand everything. But with time it gets better.

I didn't update to firmware 2.0 because it has too many disadvantages for me.
But IIRC, you have to decompress the image-bmc twice.

Also a good howto has been written by ClassicHasClass: https://www.talospace.com/2020/02/messing-with-new-20-bmc.html

I'm pretty sure the GPU issues has nothing to do with the BMC firmware.

Could or have you already posted your xorg config file?
And how is your computer connected to the display?
Do you use the AST GPU till Petitboot and then you switch to the AMD GPU or do you only use the AMD GPU?

Does this error occur only with Bullseye or also with other distributions? Your Xorg.config file is correct?

Depending on which distribution I use, I have to use these kernel boot arguments:
modprobe.blacklist=ast video=offb:off

And I have to select the port of the AMD GPU after Petitboot is loaded, otherwise I also get the message "no screens found".

I haven't installed Fedora anymore, but OpenVPN should be available.

The page size doesn’t make any difference.

To put that on the wiki would be a good thing

You're right. As for audio, you could use a cheap USB sound device. I'm using my AMD graphic card with Kernel 5.4.
