Well I think it's still early in fact, then as we know Fedora being a constant test bed has several defects which the developers then correct by running it on the various platforms of us end users and therefore I think that the beta releases are even worse in terms of bugs. Let's wait for the final version of Fedora to arrive and then see how Chromium runs. We have to start again after years of missing this browser. However, for some time now I have seen that the original Google search engine can be used again and now Chromium is also coming out and no longer ungoogled Chromium like a short time ago. Maybe Google has allowed us to use Power again, who knows... Or maybe Raptor still manages to run the regular version, bypassing the block they put in place at the time, I don't know...

Perfect then I'll wait for Fedora 40 to arrive, I hope they don't ruin it with the new release obviously and then after the update I'll try to install Chromium.  Thanks for everything TLE.

 Perfect, then all that remains is to wait for the update to Fedora 40. But what procedure should be used to install it?  Do we need new repositories to install?

Well this is excellent news, up to now in fact on Power, Chromium is only found on Debian and it works really very well.  So it's very good to see it again on Fedora after a long time.

I understand it would take a developer who knows how to write the code apart from you and who can dedicate a bit and at the moment there isn't unfortunately... I hope in the future at least :)

It's been a long time since the last post in this thread, does anyone have any news regarding any improvements in the performance of MAME on Power? Classic Has had said he wanted to work on it but to date he hasn't given any more news on the matter...

I personally can tell you that if you have a Blackbird and you have to use both PCI express slots, you must necessarily use up to a maximum of 2 slots, otherwise you won't be able to use the second slot.  Unfortunately, the new Radeons are almost all 2.5 and therefore you can't use them.  That's why I was thinking that if there was a possibility, get a 7700 pro that uses 2 slots, even if it costs a lot more unfortunately being pro.  I use the 8 PIN slot for the sound card so I'm one of those who necessarily needs to use 2-slot graphics cards and no more.

We need to understand what exactly is needed to make it work properly. In recent times they have made several AMD driver updates, to understand if very recent firmware is needed, which versions of Mesa drivers are necessary. I would like to mount a Radeon Pro 7700 rdna 3 for example...

So this means that in theory it would now be possible to use the graphics card like the Navi10, from the beginning and therefore also to load the petit boot... If I understand correctly...

As an MPC I also use the Radeon with the switch after loading the operating system, he himself makes the switch from AST to Radeon.

Hi Hasturtium, I have been using Debian for a few years now and I must say that I have now found my ideal size on Power.  As for the various things you want to know, Chromium I can confirm that it is stable and works perfectly, in fact, Debian has been the starting operating system for Chromium on Power for some time now as Raptor develops it officially on Debian and updates it regularly and punctually.  As for the rdna2 graphics card, I know that from Kernel 6.2 onwards, it is regularly supported and works without problems.  Friend TLE has been using a Radeon 6600 for some time now with success.  I currently still use an XT5700 and therefore the previous generation but in any case I compile the Kernel myself to keep it always updated to the latest version and in fact I have recently compiled and installed 6.6.5.  To make it work regularly you need 3 things on Debian, 1 the Kernel from version 6.2 or higher, 2 the updated Debian firmware and then lastly the file called XORG.CONF set in the correct way so as to tell Xorg that you are using an external graphics card instead of internal AST.

However, this discussion should have been opened in the session dedicated to operating systems, strange that the moderators haven't moved it yet... Having said that, I don't know how you use Ubuntu on Power, it has several bugs that have never been resolved, see the Firefox ones, just to name a few one and then others that I encountered when I was using it and which led me to switch to Debian and now sometimes return to Fedora a little...

Operating Systems and Porting / Re: [NEWS] Fedora 39 is here!

Updated yesterday from 37, I hadn't put 38 precisely because it was disgusting again and so I decided to wait and leave 37 which is fine instead. I confirm what my friend TLE said, everything is good and works well, the Gnome 45 works well and runs as smoothly as the version for Fedora 37 and therefore they have again optimized everything in the correct way. As for the graphics server, I must say that I also encountered some problems under Wayland. If I start under the latter, it sets the 4k resolution as default, i.e. 3840 x 2160 but if I want to change there is a big bug and it doesn't allow me to do so. So I went back to the x11 server as well which is still better today after a long time... I'm now waiting to see Chromium return to Fedora, let's see if it will be possible...

I get it so you need more time to work on it.  I hope you can complete the work so you can also use Chromium which has now been running stable on Debian for a few years thanks to Raptor.

So they have solved the problem of Gnome's slow speed finally, let's just hope that this time they keep it in the next versions too.  Can't you tell us anything new about Chromium?  We still don't have a valid alternative to Firefox when needed unfortunately... On Debian I have both and they work perfectly because if one of the 2 doesn't work well there's the other and even if it's rare but it can happen...
