Blackbird / Re: Blackbird memory options...

The other question is rank. I haven't gotten a straight answer on this from the IBM docs.

That I don't know, I only run Windows 98 on mine. I'll look into it when I get a little time unless someone here is already running W10.

Blackbird / Re: How many fans per FAN header?

I've used a single splitter without problems. I think it would get dicey chaining more than that.

I think a better means is to try to create a VM in QEMU directly. I think you have too many layers in the middle to verify functionality. Try this: https://www.talospace.com/2018/11/making-your-talos-ii-into-ibm-pseries.html

If it boots AIX (fast) with KVM on, then you know it's working, and the other issues are most likely related to configuration.

My Talos II systems are in the standard Supermicro chassis that Raptor ships. I replaced the power supplies with superquiets and now even my dual-8 is quieter than the Quad G5 next to it, though the Quad is about halfway through its second CPU-pump assembly.

/dev/kvm is present on Fedora. I think this is more of an issue with GNOME Boxes. I just call QEMU directly and KVM works fine.

This is a QEMU-specific question. Install that, and then follow any of the directions out there for setting up Windows 10 to run within it. Note that many of these assume you will be using KVM; you won't. In this example, remove `--enable-kvm`but the other steps should be fine.

Well, they won't. Wine is an implementation of the Windows API; it is processor-agnostic. Something like Hangover adds the CPU emulation piece.

I have had little time to work on it because of the schedule with my day job, unfortunately.

I had some trouble with a wired Ethernet dongle earlier. It wouldn't come up in Petitboot, so it didn't come up (automatically) in Fedora until I hotplugged it. Does this have that issue?

Good to see you here (we conversed about this over E-mail).

as there is (still) no really clear procedure

How do you mean? It's mostly upload the new BMC flash, note the MAC addresses, let it reset itself, reset the MAC addresses to their prior values, and then update the PNOR.

I'd strongly recommend you were on at least system package 2.00 for DD2.3, yes. It might be glitchy on earlier releases.

F31 is still going to be supported for a little while, so there's no hurry to upgrade if you're concerned about it.

It looks like its the 190w variant:

Yes, 02CY489 is a DD2.2 18-core @190W.
