Legacy POWER Hardware / Re: Old stuff survey
« on: December 14, 2019, 04:25:25 pm »
Yes Tim in fact I don't remember the derivation well, I had read a document a long time ago but I don't remember the derivation well.  In fact, I also never liked the lack of altivec on Freescale 5500 cores, altivec was implemented on the 6500 cores, but there was no system based on these cores and now that I remember better they were the e6500 cores that were based on  Power 8. At the time I was interested in the x 5000, when I saw that it was already back as hardware before it even went out and it was too expensive I changed my mind. I'm sorry I can't use Amiga OS 4 on Power 9, there must be  something that only recognizes X5000 hardware from what I know ... Amiga was not open but in my opinion today there is no comparable computer operating system level ... it was unique!  I always cry his death ...!

Yes I confirm this your feedback.  I could see that there is a big bug in GNOME version 3.34 for PPC64el.  The problem lies precisely in GNOME as the problem also occurs on Ubuntu as well as on Fedora and is the same problem.  Me if I noticed by chance, when I installed the first time Ubuntu 19.10, after downloading the GNOME 3.34, rebooting the system, just loaded it all, it irreversibly stopped everything.  I had to reboot and realized that there was a big problem and since it worked in server mode, I immediately realized that it could be the GNOME 3.34.  Then I installed Fedora 31 as soon as it came out and did the same procedure as the 30 or after installing the server version, I installed the XFCE package.  I started Fedora 31 and everything was ok.  At that point I decided to install the GNOME 3.34 and after the start there were no problems whatsoever.  I realized that my suspicions were well founded when, due to a mistake, I had to reinstall Fedora.  Yes, because this time I put the GNOME first as a desktop environment and as soon as I restarted Fedora froze exactly the same way as Ubuntu.  At that point I had confirmation of the GNOME problem.  At the same time, however, I realized that if you install the XFCE first and then from inside that, put GNOME then the problem doesn't exist and it works.  If instead you want to put GNOME from the beginning, then everything stops irreversibly.  At that point I also understood that Ubuntu could work in the same way and in fact after the server installation ranking, I put XFCE, then GNOME and so I also made Ubuntu 19.10 work ...

nothing to do, it returns a fatal error telling me that it is not possible to read from the remote repository ... the connection is there and it is good to the internet ... it tells me to make sure I have the correct access privileges and that the repository  there ...

you're absolutely right MPC and I had even imagined it, only if you see the guide, the command is punctuated by those spaces you see in my line, I copied it exactly as it was ... Thanks anyway ...

Waiting for me to be able to answer the previous question about the already ready kernel, I'm trying to do the procedure you posted on the wiki, when I try to run the git clone command I'm going to post to you, it tells me a fatal error, too many arguments. ..

[MauryPower9@localhost ~]$ cd git
[MauryPower9@localhost git]$ git clone git: // linux / kernel / git / jwboyer / fedora.git --depth 1 --branch kernel-5.5.0-0.rc1.git0.1.fc32
fatal: too many arguments

where is error?

but sorry, let me understand, the whole procedure you posted on Wiki, is useful if I have not misunderstood, when you personalize yourself and you compile the Kernel from you, while having this ready, theoretically you don't have to do all those passages anymore, but after executing the 2 commands from petit boot to disable quick recovery, download and then install the kernel with the 2 commands you posted right or not? Let me understand why as I repeat I experience zero on Linux and unfortunately I'm not a programmer so I have more difficulty understanding but I would like to learn something slowly thanks to Linux ...

Meklort you have not answered, I wanted to understand this thing well because it is not clear to me not being a programmer as you are. After installing the development tools, can I go ahead and continue the procedure by copying it from the guide, or do I have to go to the Kernel creation link? Because there is my problem because it is difficult for me to do it ... Let me understand ...

sorry but after installing the development tools, you have to do everything that the custom kernel compile link reports ?? It seems to me very complex for someone like me ... I don't think I can compile it I don't understand anything unfortunately ... you can't have one already compiled?

they are quite a few steps and it won't be easy since I'm still a beginner on Linux, I'll try to perform the whole procedure and if I encounter difficulties I'll let you know ... thanks a lot

I have a second-hand IMac G5 in 2007, unfortunately recently it failed and I can't use it anymore and put it aside. The Amiga x 1000 are based on Pa-semi which was then bought by Apple and did not produce more Power derivative processors but what is mounted on the X1000 is however a Power derivative. The most recent X 5000 has the Freescale P5020 or P 5040 but without Altivec and they are based on Power 8 if I remember correctly ...

Hi guys, AMD support replied telling me that 1, they don't support Fedora but the systems they currently support are: Ubuntu 18.04.3
RedHat Enterprise Linux 8.0
RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.6
CentOS 8.0
CentOS 7.6
As far as support for the Power architecture is concerned, they do not even know what they are talking about, contacting the producers to understand which Hardware to use ...! All this in Italy in any case, I don't know in America, but this is the current situation in Italy. I told him that someone is already working to bring the drivers in the Power version and I told him that in any case the first drivers they released are not good and therefore to work to improve them. I finally tried to explain to them what Power is but I doubt they immediately understand what I'm talking about ...

I hope in you at this point ...

Ok Meclort thank you, I don't know how do you get Fedora 32 since the 31 was released only now but you're at an advanced level so I don't ask for anything hahaha. A special thank you, of course, to the great Tim who took care of writing this beautiful code, after this, I have another card to activate and I will have to open another treed and see if we can do the same with that and I'm sure you will succeed, meanwhile I wait patiently for the procedures ... you are great anyway!

wow you are the reviewer of Talospace it's a pleasure to have you here and meet you. In this forum you have the chance to get to know the best Power exponents and all this is fantastic! I asked to give me a hand because I own the Radeon 5700 XT and the guys are giving me a great hand, even the great Tim Pearson himself committed himself and I am immensely grateful to him! I read that Phorinix also learned the news, it went around quickly, great! They are testing the work done, they already work tell me how you can read above, as soon as they finish the tests they will tell me how to activate this beautiful GPU ...

guys I just read on Talospace that Navi 10 support for Power is coming, apparently I'm already aware of the excellent work you're doing and have already published it ...! Great!

so you too are working to make these 5700 good news work.  I think that soon you will have the final solution I'm happy ... Let me know when you can use ...
