GPU Compute / Accelerators / Re: Intel Arc A770 - failed experiment
« on: November 24, 2022, 02:17:41 pm »
Yes, I also read the news that they are working to make the new Arc GPUs usable also by other alternative architectures to X86. We hope that they will be well supported and that a user like us at Power can choose which GPU to buy, without being forced by the support issue... Let's see what happens in the coming months... Meanwhile, the Radeon 7000 series are about to arrive...

Great job well, after so much finally, Chromium is back on Fedora too, it's missing from that famous 87 version when it was still Chromium with Google exsperince, now we can't use it on Power anymore but at least having Chromium is always great, well done great job!

Yes TLE, I also confirm what you say because once I tried compiling version 87 and I remember that it took hours to complete the cycle, I have an 8 core.  But excuse me are you building the latest version Raptor supports with Debian?  I switched to Debian for some time and I use this one and in fact I don't see Fedora versions for example...

Ah well good news, I would say finally! So I deduce that from kernel version 6.1 onwards, you can finally use an RDNA 2 6xxx card! It's been too long in fact, let's hope it doesn't have to pass the same time for RDNA 3 at this point ...

From version 5.17 onwards, that line is no longer needed, so the problem is still the same apparently ... AMD's rdna 2 doesn't work on power and this is very strange.  At this point I would say that the only ones who can do something are the Raptor team, as they did for 10 ships ... I don't see any other way, it's been 2 years and we still can't use rdna 2 ...

TLE friend, unfortunately it seems that even today the 6xxx series is not used and supported on Power.  I do not understand why the community is not taking an interest in this series of graphics cards honestly ... Now they can be found at interesting prices among other things ...

What I'm wondering is if these cards can work well on our Power systems, when we are having difficulty with AMD's RDNA2 which has always worked on our systems as GPU products ...

Ah so currently Chromium only works under Debian, there are no packages for other distributions as far as I understand ... Too bad

Good news, what about navigation browsers?  Can Firefox and Chromium run like on Debian?

I tried looking for this CONFIG_SUSPEND option you told me about but I couldn't find it in the various entries while compiling the new 6.0.1 Kernel. Under which menu is this item located? Thank you

Good evening to the whole Power community, as you have known for some time now, I like to install and test the first stable version of every new Linux Kernel that comes out and now it's time to test version 6 that makes a generational change like you you all know well. I must say that being a version with more changes, I thought it might have some bugs but luckily it seems that everything is going well ... Let's see over the next few days how it behaves but if as they say, good morning sees from morning...

Possibly indeed your problem seems to stem from the fact that currently this Power9 model is not in the list of those directly supported by Raptor. In fact I did not know this particular 16 core model, I remembered that there is a 12 core model and then the classic 18 and 22 but I did not know anything about this 16. You can try to ask Raptor in any case if you still have problems, possibly they can tell you what you need to correct to make it work fully.

I also confirm what MPC and Classic said, when I was using Fedora, I had configured Thunderbird as a mail client and it worked perfectly. The problem is limited to the Debian and derived versions ...

The Thunderbird problem was one of those that I denounced some time ago when I started using Ubuntu and I think the problem is the same as Ubuntu is a derivative of Debian. There is a bug that has never been solved despite the new versions, a bit like it happens on Firefox always on Ubuntu and its perennial problems never solved in an official way. Firefox on Debian works well I confirm everything, Thunderbird on Debian I never installed it because I prefer to use Evolutions which is by default as well and with which I have always found myself well but that problem I remember perfectly on Ubuntu.

At this point I can try to disable CONFIG_SUSPEND as you tell me in the next Kernel compilation I will do. Let's see if it stops making this strange flaw ... Thanks, I update the post as soon as I compile the next Kernel which will be the new stable 6.0 that I will try as usual as soon as it is available.
