Applications and Porting / Re: MAME for Power
« on: June 29, 2022, 04:51:39 pm »
I don't think they are specific drivers because usually MAME when it needs something specific requires it and makes you put it together with the roms. As I told you, they are a whole series of slightly more recent games, from a certain year onwards everyone does it. I've noticed this on all titles that are newer and from the late 90's onwards. I am sure that it is about optimizing the code because you understand that being a bit bigger games, it is already difficult to manage everything and if you start them with a much more modest hardware but based on X86, then the same games, with the same Roma, they go perfect. It's all about MAME on Power!
In my opinion the main problem is that this MAME on Power is simply a transposition from X86, not being written on Power, it does not exploit our processor at all and being a simple transposition, it has all the limits of the case unfortunately ...

NO Classic, I'm sure the problem is upstream, both the Debian version and the Ubuntu version have the same identical type of problem, Markr87 confirmed what I said and I'm sure the version of other distros will also have the same problem. The problem will be upstream, the one who deals with the Power version must review some parts in my opinion ...

Markr87 yes that's right, what I was telling you too, unfortunately several games a little less old than others, I can say, like, from the late 90s up, they have different functioning problems and that's why in my previous post, I highlighted this thing or that currently our mame does not have optimizations for our processor and therefore it goes badly on slightly more recent games and especially from the late 90s onwards ... Even today the last mame does not have optimizations that improve the situation and if someone does not specifically take our Power version and works on it seriously, we will never have improvements unfortunately ... The code must be optimized for Power ... But nobody knows how to update it and what repository is needed to do it?

Hi markr87, sorry but how does Tekken turn to you? I tried the old 2 and it already runs very slow and therefore lacks optimization, just as I said in the previous posts, how does it turn to you? I oh noticed the poor performance on both Tekken 2 and 3 and both Street Fighter 3 ... They all run very poorly compared to the X86 counterpart ...

I hope so much then, it would be a good thing.  But instead sorry, how should you do to keep it updated?  I have version 0.220 that comes with Debian 11 and I have noticed that if you do not advance in the operating system version first, MAME never updates ... Are there any specific repositories to install?  Thanks always.

Well TLE, so now finally Fedora can finally use MAME too, good news I would say. As you know by now I have switched to Debian, so I don't care much about what happens on Fedora anymore, but I am equally pleased that more software is coming. Unfortunately the main problem of MAME on Power is the poor general optimization, I noticed that several games that on the X86 version are very good, I am talking about old stuff above all, I am not talking about recent things for heaven's sake, but old stuff that unfortunately runs slow on Power and unplayable. Really a shame, it would be nice to know how to optimize the code and make better use of the available hardware, it would be really very nice!

Operating Systems and Porting / Re: New Kernel 5.16 and new problem
« on: May 28, 2022, 04:46:17 am »
Hello everyone, I tested the new Kernel 5.18 just released, I can tell you that you can finally compile and install the new kernel on Power without having to make any changes. They also fixed the last problem for which friend matgraf had to create the patch. Now you can compile and install your own custom Kernel without having to change anything. Tested on Ubuntu, in the next few days I will install it in a definitive stable version also on Debian.

But I didn't understand where you got the RPM files to tell the truth. Apart from that, I have no idea where to find those libraries of course, here the most knowledgeable about Fedora are Classic Has and TLE, except that Classic works on Firefox and so I think you don't use Chromium, TLE used and uses Chromium but I don't have idea if you currently have the latest version installed. I tried to ask but no one answered unfortunately. Maybe MPC7500 knows something because he also used Fedora a lot ... I've been using Debian for some time now, so no more problems thankfully but honestly I've always wondered how to make Chromium work new on Fedora .. .

We are in bad shape if there are still those who approach us to Apple, really bad damn ...! But is it also possible to compile for Debian and derivatives?

However it is very strange because the standard Chromium version 87 has always worked well on Fedora ... Anyway what I don't know is because nobody talks about new versions that are currently available for Debian and derivatives, I have not found anything about these new versions, made for Fedora ... Here in the forum, no one knows anything apparently and it's even stranger ...

Operating Systems and Porting / Re: Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
« on: May 18, 2022, 03:16:40 pm »
YES I saw something like this, only I also read that if you want, you can install the .deb version again, only that it takes the repositories rightly but the problem is that when you try to download them it tells you that they are not there. I did a little research and I had found the repositories to be able to install it but it tells me that they do not exist ... So it is necessary to understand in the meantime where these repositories can be first of all ... I also tried to install Chromium but also that not me he does install it because he asks me for a library that apparently does not exist on Ubuntu ... The Browser situation therefore at the moment on Ubuntu remains very very strange, I don't understand it ...

Operating Systems and Porting / Re: [NEWS] AlmaLinux 8.6 is out
« on: May 18, 2022, 03:11:32 pm »
Guys my personal opinion is, what are all these distros for when what we at Power need above all is an expansion of the software park and therefore more support for our architecture, not dozens and dozens of distros that do nothing but increase only the already high fragmentation of Linux ... This is my personal opinion of course.

Operating Systems and Porting / Re: [NEWS] Fedora 36 is out!
« on: May 16, 2022, 01:31:02 am »
Unfortunately Fedora is constantly regressing from 34 and this is a fact ... In the end I decided to leave in fact for this very reason, I'm sorry but unfortunately these are the facts, I had upgraded from 34 to 35 and I realized of the worsening, now not even step to 36 does not make sense at this point, it is not even worthwhile to mount the hard disk ...

So guys, they discovered that actually Nvidia is still the same Nvidia ... Basically they made a sneaky move which is to remove the binary files from the "propietary BLOB" in the kernel and put them in the firmware of the GPU ...! The discovery was made by a certain Hector Martin, famous in the Linux environment above all! So in reality they have not made anything open that can be seen and pissed off by those who can do it, they have just moved it and so everyone is saying wow Nvidia has finally made its drivers open ... Bullshit!
Having said that I don't know what good we at Power will be able to take, it seems that even the optimization of everything will not be a great thing and therefore I have the distinct impression that in the end it will always be better for us to stay on AMD ...

I see Fedora getting worse from version to version now, now if you use AST, even KDE doesn't run well anymore ... Honestly, what's happening with Fedora on Power is disheartening ...
