It looks like I have some evening reading to catch up on.

As I age, my perception skews further toward "humans are flawed beings", and no amount of rule making or societal structuring will ever eliminate exploitative behavior. And in software projects, the more humans (flawed beings) are involved, the more exploitative activity will occur. None of this is to excuse such behavior.

I can think of Maone, author behind NoScript, having dubious history but still being a net positive in the world of adblocking and open source software.

Andreas Tille - Can it be inferred that his intentions with his time as project leader are malicious? What kind of negative changes, impacting Debian security, would one anticipate being made during this time?

Blackbird / Re: Availability of P9 hardware post-ISA 3.1 HW launch

FWIW, I do not plan to sell my current RCS boards once the new ones are available. They will become relegated to the roles currently filled by some older x86 systems that I have.

Firmware / Re: Firmware 2.10 for Talos-II and Blackbird available
« on: March 23, 2024, 09:52:03 pm »
what is the linux kernel version of firmware 2.10? Some cards are known to be buggy with old kernel, please refer to for compatability

6.6 I think. The new firmware is up and running on my evaluation system but I'm not loading firmwares as r34per is trying to do.

GPU Compute / Accelerators / Re: Radeon RDNA3 support?

I've heard the same too, that it's had it since Vega -- but that it needs PSP or ME on the CPU side too to be effective.

Do you know where I might find literature on this? In what way does it attempt to link to the CPU PSP?

It seems to have fallen through with no change brought about by any of the dialogue.

Debian Bookworm ffmpeg 5.1.4-0+deb12u1 introduces an issue where default h264 encoding for mp4 videos creates artifacting. Green patches on frame-by-frame changes.

It can be worked around by manually specifying a different video codec.

Code: [Select]
ffmpeg -i sample.mp4 -vcodec mpeg2video output.mp4

I have read recently that newer AMD GPUs include a version of PSP. Can this be verified? It is everything dating back to Polaris?

Firmware / Re: Adventures in reverse engineering broadcom nic firmware
« on: January 03, 2024, 07:22:04 pm »
The presence of an RSA signature, I venture a guess may be present as there might be other Broadcom products which do check the signature. And Broadcom's internal policy may simply be to sign everything just so that there is uniformity across development.

Oh, you just have to scroll down from the completely blank white title card.

Imagine having the option to own your own keys and use silicon that has fully open source firmware and tooling.

User Zone / Re: Calling for gaming experiences

It is simple to contribute to right now. I don't think we intended for so very many games to actually work that the list would outgrow a simple column. Maybe it can be split it up into:

Native builds
Engine re-implementations

These events have also been showing in the 'Server Health' section of my BMC web panel. Just four marked from 2020, and two more recent from December 2023.

Code: [Select]
CALLOUT_DEVICE_PATH=/sys/devices/platform/gpio-fsi/fsi0/slave@00:00/raw CALLOUT_ERRNO=0_PID=4612

My system has been fine, other than occasionally booting without properly setting RTC time to the host (same issue that ClassicHasClass has been seeing?)

If this is power outage related, that would make sense since, through 2020, I unknowingly had my Blackbird on a bad uninterruptible power supply. Then later had it in a location prone to outages before replacing the UPS.

If these logs are nothing critical, they should be safe to clear from the log?

Operating Systems and Porting / Re: Debian 12 status?
« on: December 13, 2023, 09:15:23 pm »
Have another computer handy because Debian still have not readded the ast module for initramfs to their installation images.

Have a look at the wiki. You'll need to set console=hvc0 to grub cmd line and conduct the TUI installer from another machine through obmc-console-client. Huge PITA, but worth it to have Debian IMO.

General OpenPOWER Discussion / Re: POWER11 on the horizon?
« on: November 27, 2023, 08:11:52 pm »
If anything I'm most interested in is IBM returning to its core open source design, so that it has a Power 11 processor that's exactly as open as a Power 8 or Power 9, I'm not going to buy Power CPUs. that they are not IBM because their technology is the best ever for their processors and I don't think that any other company, no matter how good, can reach their level and therefore I don't intend to change companies for these microprocessors. IBM creates it and IBM must produce it or have it produced by one of its direct partners to be the best, this at least is my humble opinion and then obviously it is debatable by anyone.

I've learned in life not to get hung up on vendor brands. Especially in the computing space, it's all about the design and how it's implemented.
