Operating Systems and Porting / Re: [NEWS] Fedora 33 is out
« on: February 23, 2021, 11:24:22 am »
I'm trying to install Fedora 33 Workstation on my Blackbird but the system hangs in the middle of the install... what could be causing this?

I reckon you should remove all but the NVME or SSD then give the installation a go again

Thanks, actually it seems to be the same problem that I mentioned in another topic, the graphics card doesn't seem to play along with 5.x kernel.
The installation goes through when I remove the graphics card from the system.

What happens when you try to? What do you see in dmesg?



I just left the computer turned on after it froze, then a few minutes later I got this in the terminal

Operating Systems and Porting / Compiling a new kernel for debian
« on: February 21, 2021, 08:23:49 am »
Hi, I am trying to use Blackbird with the newest linux kernel.

I'm using the classic commands:

cd linux-5.x.x
cp -v /boot/config-$(uname -r) .config
make olddefconfig
make -j16 deb-pkg

the new kernel builds, fine, boots fine but it cannot reboot or shutdown the computer...

Any words about what could be done about this?

Discussed this some with the IBM team, the issue will be handled here:

https://github.com/open-power/op-build/issues/3634

Thank you for reporting it. I hope the patch gets delivered to repos soon.

Thanks!  Next time you might try compressing it, as it's just plain text I'm sure the compressed version would end up a lot smaller than 42MB...  ;)

Do you see "cc1: error: no include path in which to search for stdc-predef.h" line in the full log on your x86 box?  I have no practical way to test (no easy access to an x86 machine).

Here is the successful build log from an amd64 machine.

Can you post the build log from a full clean build?   This one looks like it was restarted, and from the error messages I'm guessing the toolchain didn't compile correctly.

The fastest way to make this work for sure is to install a Debian Stretch chroot, bind mount /proc, /sys, and /dev, then build inside that chroot.  I don't think IBM fully supports the newer software versions in Buster, and from the log I can't (yet) determine why it'd fail on POWER other than it's possible the native compile path is different and somehow broken on Buster.

I'd like to see this fixed, but I'm not 100% sure when I'd have time to get a new environment set up and test build, which is why I'd like to see the full log from scratch build.  Maybe it's something simple (missing package?)   :)

I got the full log file but as it exceeds the attachment file size limit I temporarily uploaded it onto my server.
Here it is: http://3.1.2.2/temp/fullbuild.log

Yes, the build only fails on ppc64le system, and attached is the full build log file.

Firmware / Blackbird firmware build fails on Blackbird
« on: May 12, 2020, 10:36:51 am »
When building system firmware v2.00 for Blackbird I am getting the following error as seen in the screenshot.

I used the commands from the wiki page: https://wiki.raptorcs.com/wiki/Compiling_Firmware
and the same build finishes successfully on another amd64 system.

Can somebody confirm this?
Both systems run Debian buster.
