With Skiroot now at 6.6 does this mean Btrfs will function correctly?

@MPC7500 If you blacklist the AST can you interact with Petitboot?

Still waiting on my Support Request.  In the mean time I have replaced my 13 year old CoolerMaster 600W Silent Pro with a shiny new be quiet! Dark Power 12 750W Platinum.  Happy to have the new power supply, but unfortunately my quandary prevails.

Sadly that troubleshooting workflow does not directly apply to my situation but I have started a support request nonetheless.  I have also ordered a new power supply as well.

@SiteAdmin Thanks for your advice.  It is greatly appreciated.

I reflashed the PNOR and no change.  Just to rule it out I then reflashed the BMC to no avail.

@MPC7500 Thanks for your reply.

I have an extra BCM flash rom and have swapped it out.  No change, still locks up at the same place. 
I have the boot sequence set to boot from USB first if present and have tried a Fedora flash drive with the same results. 
If I am quick I can hit "Enter" on the default "Exit to shell" I get the the flashing prompt with about 3 flashes before it locks up. 
I have noticed "STB: VERSION verification FAILED" followed by "IMA_CATALOG verification FAILED" and "Error loading ucode lid. index=202d1" during boot.
I also noticed later in the boot sequence "Bootkernel verification FAILED".

Hello all,

Last week we had a large storm come through and took out our power for a 5 days.  Unfortunately my Blackbird was on when the power died.  Even more unfortunately it will no longer boot up.  It gets as far as where you choose which OS/kernel you want to use and it locks up.  Has anyone here run into this before?

Hi markr87, sorry but how does Tekken turn to you? I tried the old 2 and it already runs very slow and therefore lacks optimization, just as I said in the previous posts, how does it turn to you? I oh noticed the poor performance on both Tekken 2 and 3 and both Street Fighter 3 ... They all run very poorly compared to the X86 counterpart ...
@MauryG5, I just tried Tekken 2 ver.B and can sadly report it is very slow, no sound and coin buttons not responding.  I didn't spend any time trying to figure out sound and buttons.  I compared it to a cheap i5 system I picked up to run an arcade cabinet I am building.  The i5 runs it at normal speed.

Has anyone been able to get NFL Blitz to work?  Just wondering if it is a no go or more than likely pebcak?

Does it not start? What issue do you see?

I haven't thoroughly tested it (and my ROM set is for an older MAME, so it's possible I'll have some fallout migrating it from my G5 to the POWER9) but basic behaviour seems to be fine.

To be more specific it is NFL Blitz '99.  I am just wanting to see how our Power9's perform.  It loads and gives me the normal cpu, sound, ect., press any key to continue display.  I press a key and get a brief message about how there is no saved state as this would be the first time it has ran.  The screen goes blank and that's all she wrote.  I know it will take longer on the first run but I have let it sit for hours to no avail.  Also of note Esc will not respond.  Requires a reset to get out of it.  My romset and chd files are of the same version as mame.  I get the same behavior with the latter versions of the tekken series as well.

It did not produce any ROM files.  Deleting the build directory returned same results.

Thank you for your quick response.  Your assessment was spot on. After a quick "sudo mount --bind /dev ~/debian-chroot/dev" I was able to compile sort of-ish.  Now I get "Summary: There were 2 ERROR messages shown, returning a non-zero exit code."

Firmware / Compiling and Updating BMC
« on: February 06, 2022, 02:48:19 pm »
Working on a Blackbird/Fedora via debian-chroot, I was able to self compile "blackbird.pnor". 

I am stuck with a
"OSError: [Errno 38] Function not implemented
ERROR: Unable to connect to bitbake server, or start one"
while Building the OpenBMC firmware.

I had decided to just download the pre-compiled version and became a little confused.  The instructions for self compiling say you should end up with 2 files,  "image-rofs" and "image-kernel" but when I open the pre-compiled version it contains only one file, "blackbird-v2.00-image-bmc".

EDIT: So, if updating via shell you use the web_ipmi_upgrade and if updating via the web you use the shell_upgrade?  I'm sure this makes sense to everybody else but I invert my x-y axis on FPS's. ;)

Thank you so much for bringing this little gem to our attention.  This is awesome.  Could you do "Delver" next?   :D
