Applications and Porting / Re: [GAMES] ET Legacy v2.77
« on: May 26, 2022, 10:29:54 am »
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?

17
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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

23
Have you tried with version 87?  83 is now too old I think ... And then I go back to my same previous question, haven't they released any of the new versions in RPM package for Fedora?  The 8X series are too old versions now ...

The problem of Kernel 5.17 as well as 5.16, we know that you have to apply the patch, how can you apply it without compiling a kernel yourself ?!  Can it be applied to the Fedora Kernel?  Apart from that now I'm happy to use Debian with which I'm getting much better on everything.

Yes matgraf I confirm that I am no longer using that setting and the kernel starts regularly, I thought you had experienced it too but in any case here we are here to help each other and give us information so I'm happy that the information you be served! Even on Ubuntu it starts without that line, you don't need it anymore! Now we hope that as soon as possible the official Kernel team will serialize your fix patch on all future Kernels so we won't even have to boot it on every new kernel to be compiled.

Guys I also wanted to point out 2 other things about this new Kernel 5.17, the first is that Debian now loads with a few seconds less and it was already fast on its own, so in practice I gained a few seconds of loading speed and then I don't have needed to make that famous setting amdgpu.asm = 0. Not if this thing is always due to the patch of his friend matgraf or if it is something that they have solved with the new kernel, the fact is that it is no longer needed.

Operating Systems and Porting / Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
« on: April 24, 2022, 05:04:45 pm »
Guys I tried to update Ubuntu 21.10 with the new version 22.04 because now I've been keeping Ubuntu installed on a hardisk for some time and I like to try the news and see how it goes. What I can essentially say are 2 things, the first is that from the point of view of the general management of the operating system, Ubuntu confirms itself as the best there is currently on Power. The fluidity in moving the various pages and the whole Gnome 42 is truly fabulous, better than 21.10 which still had some uncertainty while still being overall good and well usable. So while fedora gets worse and worse and you are forced to manually install optimizations, Ubuntu is getting better and better and currently has the best handling of Gnome 4X that there is on Power. The second thing I noticed is that the more it evolves graphically and in general management, the more it regresses in terms of software in general. Let me explain better, his damned criticisms increase more and more! All this is incredible and it gets on a lot of nerves honestly because it's a shame to see a distro that is so good on a technical level and then gets totally lost in use. In the meantime, the first thing that catches the eye is that Firefox, which was already suffering from big perennial problems, of which I have spoken to you several times, as if by magic it totally disappears and you never see it again ... It has disappeared from me. pure Grub Customizer which I used to manage the 5.15.X Kernel booting. I tried to insert the Raptor repositories for Chromium and once I save, if I try to reopen the software & update to insert the key, the application doesn't open anymore and I have to remove the Raptor repositories ... I didn't go further because 'already' I was nervous enough and I gave up from continuing to try but probably if I continue I also find other criticisms that have always been present on this distro on Power and have never been resolved. So I wonder how it is possible that still no one tests this distro to try to fix all these criticisms that have always afflicted him, crazy, I'm speechless ...

Hi matgraf, yes I just finished compiling and installing on Debian too. Everything was fine on Debian as well as you can see in the picture. I also used make bindeb-pkg after make menuconfig. After he created the files with extension .deb, I gave the command to have all 4 installed then I ran dpkg -i linux - *. Deb and he installed the generated .deb files and then automatically updated the grub. Right now I'm writing from Debian with Kernel 5.17.4. Great job thanks matgraf!

No matgraf, as not mentioned, I only understood afterwards what you meant in your explanation and how to insert the patch. Just up and running in version 5.17.4, your patch apparently works very well, congratulations. I'm testing it on Ubuntu, then compiling it for Debian. Thanks

Hi MatGraf, unfortunately, having never patched the kernel, I'm not practical and I don't understand where to apply this patch exactly. I read in this guide on the net, which must be applied in the path of / usr / src but in the downloaded kernel there is only the usr directory, the src is not there and I don't understand where to apply this patch. That path is present in the root system directory, that is the one that is identified with the symbol / but in the directory of the Kernel just downloaded I can't find this path ... Can you tell me better how to do it kindly? So I too start learning how to patch kernels ... Thanks
