Applications and Porting / Re: MAME for Power

Hi TLE, thanks for the news.  At the moment Fedora put it aside and am using Ubuntu and Debian more, due to that exasperated slowness issue of Gnome from 40 onwards.  We will see later anyway thanks for the good news.

Classic the problem is that I do not know if I am capable of making this modification, it depends on the complexity of this procedure you are saying. However, before unmounting the Fedora 35 hardisk, I had installed libgraphene, I had also written it in the discussion concerning Fedora 35 but unfortunately nothing has changed because obviously we also need this patch you are talking about. I don't know if I can put this patch but ...

User Zone / Clone hardisk Linux

Power friends good morning, I have a question to ask you, I would like to clone the hard drive containing Debian 11 and bring it to SSD, currently being that I was just testing it, I have it on a mechanical hard drive.  What is the best procedure you recommend, without obviously doing damage?  Thanks always!

I personally took 3 hard disks and installed Debian, Ubuntu and Fedora.  I was fine with Fedora until it made the switch to Gnome 40, it literally sucks as they haven't fully optimized the code and it was slow, jerky and almost unusable.  I then used Ubuntu which in fact I realized that as fluidity and use it turned out to be the best but unfortunately it has several small bugs that have never been solved unfortunately.  Besides Firefox for example there is another bug which consists in not reading audio CDs, you put a common CD and it does not load the tracks.  Debian 11 has improved a lot I must say and now that Chromium 97 has arrived, I am starting to use it a little more and it is good overall.  I have compiled the Kernel in version 5.15.3 with 4K pages and with a firmware update I can make the AMD Radeon 5700 XT 50 th Anniversary edition work well.  I'd like to have Ubuntu troubleshoot but I still haven't figured out how to report it to them directly if I have to tell you the truth ...

Woof do you like me use Ubuntu on Power? We are few who use it here, you too have found the Firefox problems I have been talking about for some time, such as the bug of the bookmark that does not work and the problem that occurs when you use Firefox on certain sites ...

Unfortunately the problem for us at Power is always the same, on the software side that you will have to use for your works, what optimization will you have ?!  We usually suffer on this front compared to X86 ...

Thank you Classic for your always valuable information.  Meanwhile, I have good news on the Chromium front, Raptor gave me this link ...

Ok but these people you say use the Power version? Because from what I understand, the problem occurs on Power not on X86 ... I wrote in that forum because my friend Amock told me that there was a report made to that site and that they had already tried to solve it but without success. If I knew who is using Firefox on Ubuntu I could ask directly if something should be enabled but I think it is our version of Power that suffers from these annoying bugs ...

With my friend Amock, we talked about these reports, he also uses Ubuntu and gave me a link where to report the problem related to the bookmark that has always plagued the Ubuntu version. In the meantime he told me that he too makes his source and he explained how to do it and he also told me that if you do it from the source, then these problems are not encountered. I tried to do it myself as a source but I couldn't. You Classic can you try to give me the exact procedure to be able to build it myself from source and see if I can do it with yours? Maybe there is something in your procedure that doesn't work and I can't build it myself ... Regarding the bug report we wrote on this site but we haven't received any new answers yet, unfortunately ...

No guys, apparently the problem lies specifically in the Ubuntu version of Firefox. It seems that the problem of the inability to save the history and save the sites in the bookmark is not the only defect of Firefox on Ubuntu. The absurd thing that I don't understand is why only on Ubuntu, Firefox should be the same for everyone but obviously they use some damn type of software that conflicts with some parts of Firefox and nobody notices it because it is not used a lot. For example, the site is also lacking. Enter the home page but if you try to go to the audio video section for example, a # symbol appears in front of the address and it does nothing, it does not go to that page. Everything then retried with Firefox ESR on Debian and everything works fine.

ok I'll try version 96 too, thanks.  For other examples I have to make a local mind and review because being that I always use it very little I do not remember all the sites where I had problems ... In the meantime I try with the 96 version if it goes to me too.  Thank you

An example that I can give you quick, tried a few days ago, I tried to enter the Motorola site, I simply did, did it more than once and none of the times Firefox managed to enter ... Now I don't have tried with the latest version ...

No Classic, I was talking about Firefox in general, I was not talking about Firefox on Ubuntu specifically, attention. The problem Firefox has on Ubuntu is that it has a probable conflict with Ubuntu security software and consequently doesn't make Firefox bookmark work but I'm not talking about that. I am talking about the current limitations that Firefox has on some sites where either it does not go at all or is struggling and I am not referring to the Ubuntu version of the Firefox on Power in general. For the bookmarks problem we have reopened the problem with the friend amock who also uses Ubuntu, we wrote that this problem still exists and if they can solve it but I am referring to the navigation problems in general of Firefox not to bookmarks ... Firefox on Power, unfortunately it still reveals less performing and with some limitations compared to Chromium and this creates a big problem since Chromium has remained stationary and or sooner or later if it will no longer be updated, the time will come that we will no longer be able to use it and if Firefox continue with these limitations, we will be out of navigation on a global level ... I also encountered the same problems when I was using Fedora. I haven't used Fedora for a short time, but until recently when I was using it, the problem was still the same on Firefox.

I was talking about Firefox not working on some sites, not Chromium ... Firefox is not working on some sites today.

Guys, I inform you that given the stalemate that has arisen on Chromium, I wrote directly to Raptor to point out what is becoming a problem for our Power systems or the lack of a well-functioning browser for our architecture.  Unfortunately Firefox, you all know that despite the efforts to be praised by his friend Classic Has, he still cannot browse all sites, there are sites he cannot even enter.  So it is clear that something needs to be done to solve this problem otherwise we will be out of global navigation which in 2022 is unthinkable for a modern computer.  Evidently TLE is no longer able to develop versions after 87 and we have been stuck for some time now.  Raptor is meeting to decide what to do and I hope they find a solution soon.  If anyone needs Chromium continuity support let me know I'm happy to help.
