General OpenPOWER Discussion / Re: News?

As of today, sadly no news.
I think, I would pick a Talos-II lite if I want to buy a POWER9 mainboard.

General CPU Discussion / Re: CPU Power 9 8 core più veloci e prestanti

I will not participate in this. The CPU has a TDP of 190W, the Blackbird has a max TDP of 160W.

So from my point of view the CPU is useless. Either the CPU is limited to 160W, if this is not the
case the VRMs of the Blackbird will be grilled over time.

Only this. But it's already more than six weeks old.

I also installed Slackware successfully on my Blackbird.

The lack of STR is a big one, IMO.

FWIW, there is absolutely no problem to playback 4K on Navi14

No idea. It just worked. I would remove it and install it again.

There are a lot of reports on the AMD Github repo related to this bug.

On which task does Thunderbird freeze? I never observed such behavior.

Having RCS distributers all over the world would be a first step. But more important, in my opinion, would be to have a super cheap PPC64le (POWER8+ compatible) device to attract more developers to the platform.

Now this has nothing to do with PowerPC, but my dream would be if all Linux developers would join together to create one single LinuxOS. An OS that you can configure as you like during installation. Starting with the init system, package-management, one source pool etc..

On one side it is good that there are so many distributions, but in the end every distribution fights for itself. One and the same patch is made a thousand times. A waste of time. Microsoft and Apple certainly don't mind for sure.

If all developers would work together Linux would become the number one OS in every area overnight. Exotic hardware would automatically be better supported.

But it will probably remain for a long time that the Judean People' s Front is fighting against the People's Front of Judea.
