Operating Systems and Porting / Re: New Kernel 5.16 and new problem
« on: April 25, 2022, 02:01:47 pm »
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

Well then in theory maybe already in the next Kernel 5.17.4, there could be the correction without the need to insert it manually ...

Excuse me but when you make a correction, shouldn't you tell the Kernel developers, warning them that a correction must be made regarding that architecture and therefore to make the Kernel work, you must make a correction for everyone?

So you think it's AMD's fault that these cards still don't go to Power? I thought that since AMD's drivers are always open source, then the Power developers came up with the equivalents for our architecture. At the time of my 5700 I remember that when the first drivers for Linux were published, Raptor in the person of Tim Pearson, created a Patch to insert nice Kernel and from that moment on this card started to work also on Power. Then as time passed, everything was integrated into the official kernels and the 5700 as well as the 5500 Navi 14 ran perfectly on Power. Now I don't know if even in this case, a Patch would be needed to make these cards work at first, or in this case the problems are other too ... You should ask whoever does this work on AMD GPU drivers. ..

Great Matgraf, great job, how can we take advantage of the correction now? Should we simply wait for the Linux Kernel team to fix it and then regularly download the tarball from the linux-archive site or do we need to do something else? Thanks

Guys apparently with the Kernel we have stopped, no news yet on the correction of the problem on Power of the new Kernel 5.16 and 5.17 and the 5.18 is coming as well ...

Hi Daniel, then you are there you have not disappeared into thin air hahaha.  In any case, I had also asked me some time ago about the situation of these cards and the TLE friend said that the drivers are not yet working, I don't know if anything has changed now but unfortunately I have not read about anyone who uses these cards on Power. and therefore I think there is no news about it ... The thing is strange because now we are almost 2 years after launch if I remember correctly and it is serious that they cannot be used yet ...

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 ...

User Zone / Re: Radeon HD7750 working on 64K PAGESIZE.
« on: April 10, 2022, 03:15:05 pm »
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.

Operating Systems and Porting / Re: [NEWS] Debian 11 is out
« on: April 10, 2022, 08:14:07 am »
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 ...
