Hi TLE, thanks for offering help and support. I turn the Blackbird once a week and I do not have much time either. Anyway, if you can provide some guidance I can try but I'm really not familiar with Git or building code. Regards

Thanks MPC7500, I'll try to install them and then Chromium.

Hi  Maury,

I've found this one from Raptor: and got excited because it's recent 2022-05-15 and updated version.

I've tried downloading and installing the following packages:

chromium-101.0.4951.64-2.ppc64le.rpm         chromium-driver-101.0.4951.64-2.ppc64le.rpm
chromium-common-101.0.4951.64-2.ppc64le.rpm  chromium-l10n-101.0.4951.64-2.noarch.rpm

but all (except chromium-l10n-101.0.4951.64-2.noarch) gives me an error message:

- nothing provides needed by chromium-101.0.4951.64-2.ppc64le
  - nothing provides needed by chromium-101.0.4951.64-2.ppc64le

which I could not find on the web.

Package chromium-l10n-101.0.4951.64-2.noarch gives me a different error: file /usr/lib from install of chromium-l10n-101.0.4951.64-2.noarch conflicts with file from package filesystem-3.16-2.fc36.ppc64le

Any ideas?

It's 87 from, the ungoogled chrome. Standard chromium fail to download:

[FAILED] chromium-browser-stable-84.0.4147.125-1.ppc64le.rpm: Status code: 500 for (IP: 2606:4700:90:0:f22e:fbec:5bed:a9b9)

Hi All,

I've just upgraded from 35 (I was already running kernel 5.17) and video performance, which was ok before the upgrade, now is very slow. I run KDE Plasma.

Is there anything I can do to improve video performance? I run on standard video output from BMC and do not have room for a graphics/GPU board on my Blackbird. So, I mean, any software change/config that can help improve video performance?

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

I've just upgraded to Fedora 36 (I was already on kernel 5.17) and the upgrade broke my Chromium. I've tried downloading chromium-common_83.0.4103.116-1~deb10u3~ppc64elb4_ppc64el.deb from but the install fails with error message "ile /usr/lib from install of chromium-common-83.0.4103.116-2.ppc64le conflicts with file from package filesystem-3.16-2.fc36.ppc64le".

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

One additional question: how do I keep it updated? Will I have to build again everytime I want to check if there is a new version?

Thanks in advance.

Stupid question but just checking: is the .ovpn file in the directory you ran that command from?
Hi ClassicHasClass,

Thanks for replying. The issue was that I needed to run the connection as root. Now everything works.

They should be right here, assuming you are on Fedora.


    Building with OpenSSL (recommended):

    # yum install openssl-devel

    Building with mbed TLS (alternative):

    # yum install mbedtls-devel

    Generic build requirements:

    # yum install gcc-c++ git autoconf autoconf-archive automake make pkgconfig glib2-devel jsoncpp-devel libuuid-devel libcap-ng-devel selinux-policy-devel lz4-devel zlib-devel libxml2 tinyxml2-devel python3-dbus python3-gobject python3-pyOpenSSL python3-jinja2 python3-docutils python3-dbus bzip2 polkit

    Clone this git repository: git clone git://
    Enter the openvpn3-linux directory: cd openvpn3-linux
    Run: ./
Completing these steps will provide you with a ./configure script.

Hey Borley,

I've followed the instructions and built the openvpn3 client, thanks a lot!

Now I have a problem specific to the client, maybe you're familiar with it. After installing the openvpn3 I built, I've downloaded a .ovpn file and tried to use it to connect to my cloud openvpn server but I got an error:

$ openvpn3 session-start --config client.opvn
config-import: ** ERROR ** ERR_PROFILE_GENERIC: cannot open for read: client.opvn

I've researched on the web but could not solve the issue.

Would you have any clue?

Thanks again.

Thanks Borley, I'll give it a try and update the results here.

I've never built before. Is there a link with instructions on how to do that? Thanks

Actually, openvpn was installed when I stated isearching for the client. What I'm looking for is a ppc64el build of openvpn3 (, which is the client side used in a Connection. The server side in my case is Cloud based.

Thanks Anyway.

Hi All,

I've been looking for the OpenVPN client for our platform but could not find any build that I can download and install (I have no idea of how to build myself).

I found this link ( and tried to follow the instruction and add this repo (dsommers/openvpn-release) but got this error message: "Error: This repository does not have any builds yet so you cannot enable it now."

Anyone knows if there is a build of openvon client?


Guys, in the end, from what I'm seeing as time goes by, Wayland represents the near future and Xorg the past now. I have seen and read several articles about it and now the road is that and it is also right because Xorg has outdone him and is an old graphics server. It had been rumored for years that it should be replaced and now the time has come. For now it is obvious that there are the inconveniences of the passage and that everything is not working well yet, but they are all working to make the transaction completely so it is only a matter of time and we will all be on Wayland in a fixed and stable way and I believe that as soon as we will begin to exploit as it should, we will have a significant improvement on everything in my opinion ...

I really hope you're right about Wayland. Every time I've tried it on a Blackbird with HDMI output from BMC I got a Black screen and had to push the shut down button in the front papel.
