Applications and Porting / S.T.A.L.K.E.R. / openXray
« on: July 14, 2023, 11:42:48 am »
STALKER now runs natively on IBM POWER thanks to openXray and porting progress over a few months. Performance isnt the greatest so far but its been stable with no crashes and perfectly playable

Applications and Porting / Half-life/xash3d
« on: July 02, 2023, 07:56:04 pm »
Xash3d now supports ppc64le, was added to the git pretty simply when I asked in the discord and half-life is pretty flawless witht his "port"

you'll need to compile hlsdk-portable as well. I assume counter strike and everything else xash3d handles runs flawlessly. FPS is great. Although in time I think I'd prefer FreeHL.

but half-life is now on POWER,

Applications and Porting / Counter strike 1.5 / FreeCS

POWER9 finally has a tactical shooter. FreeCS/FreeHL compiles with pretty much zero issues what so ever. it's all WIP. 2004 Source engine is planned as well for HL2 and CSS

Blackbird / where to list my blackbird?

Some things have come up and I need the extra money, although i intend to acquire a power system again.

EDIT: nevermind, there aren't vulkan drivers for openSUSE ppc64le

The library is installed, it worked perfectly under x86. however any applications with a vulkan renderer just crash, basically saying there isn't vulkan available.


Vulkan API Version: 1.0.65

ERROR: [Loader Message] Code 0 : cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

General Discussion / 3.5 mic and dac/amp don't work under opensuse leap
« on: January 30, 2023, 07:55:53 pm »
so i have a fiio k5 pro and a typical microphone that worked just fine under opensuse tumbleweed and fedora 37, however they don't work under opensuse leap 15.4 at all (they work under leap15.4 amd64 just fine)

any guesses to where i can start? dmesg shows them showing up just fine.

Firmware / reset/clear petitboot password?
« on: January 29, 2023, 07:02:45 pm »
I set a system password but now I can't boot into any OS and it doesnt appear to work on anything other than the shell terminal

Blackbird / Onboard nic not working
« on: January 29, 2023, 02:35:07 pm »
I can't get any network access with the onboard nic despite the light showing its active. tried this with opensuse and fedora. luckily i had a pcie nic on hand.

to my surprise, when I installed openSUSE tumbleweed as leap was giving me some issues. There's absolutely no web browsers in the repos what so ever.

what can I do?

Blackbird / Question about firmware flash switches
« on: January 21, 2023, 02:13:20 pm »
does "1" mean its enabled? and is that film on them a tamper protection?

Blackbird / Would this case have enough airflow for an 8 core setup?
« on: December 20, 2022, 04:11:46 am »
I plan on using a blower cooled gpu as well (amd vega 64)

I have my blackbird mobo and 8core cpu now, waiting to put it together

Operating Systems and Porting / any user experiences with openSUSE leap?
« on: August 22, 2022, 06:22:25 am »
looks like the current 15.4 supports ppc64le, i don't see a lot of people discussing it though. mainly fedora or debian.

anyone here try leap 15.4 yet on power9?
