But none of you made this login to fill out Unreal Tournament 4?  It seems strange to me, however, that only for a simple access which among other things is reported regularly, the friend TLE was unable to compile the game ... Maybe there is more ...

Raptor says Unrial Tournament 4 works fine too, only when TLE tried to compile it, it failed and says it lacks documentation. Nobody can do this to bring this game to our Power9 systems? On you tube you see a demo that runs on Power 8, so if it runs on that, I wonder why we haven't run it on Power9 yet ... A bit paradoxical I would say ...

Yes, in fact, strange Xlinder that you did not know about this fix because it is already some time that we talked in the forum, that the problem of the AMD gpu related to the size of the pages, has been solved with the Kernel 5.11.12. They made a fix in the drivers and from that moment the 64K pages started working again and in fact now I am using the 5.15.30 Kernel on Debian with 64K pages and not 4K.

Borley, I tried your procedure, practically the same as the one done with the command: make -j 32 KDEB_PKGVERSION = 1.-maury.ppc64le deb-pkg and the error that gives me at the end is always the same on the Kernels with long support of the 5.15.X series If I try to compile the recent ones then it works but unfortunately the recent kernels as we know do not work on Power, like 5.17.X and therefore I cannot use this procedure yet. The error here is this too: make [2]: *** [debian / rules: 7: build-arch] Error 2
dpkg-buildpackage: Error: debian / rules binary subprocess returned exit status 2
make [1]: *** [scripts / Makefile.package: 83: bindeb-pkg] Error 2
make: *** [Makefile: 1576: bindeb-pkg] Error 2

I don't understand why these 5.15 Kernels make this error, 5.15.2 does it, 5.15.30 does it and also the current 5.15.33. Only if you use the universal procedure like the one I've always used and which uses Xlinder, then it doesn't give you compiler errors but I don't know how to make the system recognize it in that case. I'm waiting for them to fix the new Kernel bug so I can use that ...

Hi Xlinder, I also do like you and I use that procedure that they say is the universal one, only that way the system does not recognize you the fully installed kernel and when you have to remove it to put a new one, you have to remove file by file in the boot folder and when you run the grep command to find out how many kernels you have installed, the one you made is not there since you have not installed .deb packages. and you can't even do the classic purge command to remove that kernel because it tells you that kernel isn't installed on your system. So the system eventually does not recognize as installed, a kernel with that procedure even if it regularly makes you use it obvious. I would like to understand if it is possible to make the system recognize a kernel installed with this universal procedure as you do ...

Hi Borley, yes you are right, the installation part with the dpkg -i command is missing but the universal procedure does not bring you anything on how to do after the make install that's why I have never deepened further. Now I have found a procedure that reports the command: sudo make -j 32 KDEB_PKGVERSION = 1.-maury.ppc64le deb-pkg
I call my custom kernel as you understand of course, if I do this then he creates the .deb packages which can then be installed with the dpkg command, only I noticed that if I do this command, I try to compile the 5.15 kernel. X, it gives me an error towards the end of the compilation while if I try to compile a more recent version like 5.17, then the compilation procedure is successful and I honestly don't understand why. If I use the procedure that I have always done, that is the universal one I mentioned above, then the compilation takes place without problems even on version 5.15.X but as usual I have the problem that I do not have the .deb files to perform the actual installation. If I understood how to get the .deb files from the universal procedure, I would continue to use that without any problems ... I would like to understand well how to do after the make install, how to get the .deb files, I need the advice of a Debian expert like Daniel Pocock or Xlinder or Linux experts that there are many in here :-)

My personal opinion is that these old machines are now obsolete and it no longer makes sense to keep them alive given the growing limits.  On the contrary, the time has come to invest in Raptor machines that represent Power's future in the home environment.  They are and have made a great effort to bring Power back to our homes, I was no longer hoping to revise my favorite architecture, to return to the homes of all of us!  So with all due respect to the old machines, that's it, it's time to evolve and change, support Raptor and carry on the whole oper Power project!

Hey guys where are we with the Kernel fixes? I am ready for testing as soon as you make it available ...

sorry guys, speaking of kernels, on Debian I was trying a different procedure to compile the Kernel. Until now I have always used the make menuconfig commands to configure and then I did make -j32, make modules, make modules_install and make install and he compiled and installed modules and kernels and automatically updated the Grub. The only flaw of this procedure is that if you query the system asking for all the installed kernels, it never shows you the one installed with this procedure and consequently you cannot remove it with the classic purge command but you have to manually remove it file by file and in each case the system does not recognize it as an officially installed kernel, even though it works fine in the end. Using instead the command: sudo make -j 32 KDEB_PKGVERSION = 1.-maury.ppc64le deb-pkg, then in effect create all the packages with extension .deb and then with dpkg -i install them and you have the kernel recognized by the system as well. Except that while on Ubuntu I managed to get it to work, on Debian it always gives me this error: make [2]: *** [debian / rules: 7: build-arch] Error 2
dpkg-buildpackage: error: debian / rules binary subprocess returned exit status 2
make [1]: *** [scripts / Makefile.package: 77: deb-pkg] Error 2
make: *** [Makefile: 1576: deb-pkg] Error 2

I did some research on Google, I saw that they had some libraries installed but nothing had no effect, they say to configure the CONFIG TRUSTED KEY but I have always done it by deleting all the text and it has always worked with the classic make -j32 but nothing here, it always keeps giving me that damn mistake ... I don't understand why it doesn't want to work on Debian ... Can you tell me what's missing or where the error is? Thank you

But in fact it seems strange to me too that suddenly there is a conflict between altivec and the new kernels, because it would mean that we at Power have the problem specifically ... I don't know what is happening on X86 or Arm in relation to this fact...

I don't know how to report the problem and I don't know where to do it, I already the first time when I noticed it on the first version of 5.16, I started this discussion here on the forum but I don't know how to do it specifically and where to do it unfortunately ... I need that you help me in this regard ...

Here I just tried to compile and install the new 5.17 kernel but the problem is still the same as 5.16, something is missing and it does not start ... this is the error message at startup ...

I didn't know about the AST GPU to be honest. Personally I am still using 10.15, given the problems that there are on 5.16 so now I don't know if something has changed, I would like some confirmation before compiling a version 16 ...
