Blackbird / Re: Want more options for Blackbird™ Secure Desktop
« on: January 29, 2020, 01:49:00 pm »
About the Secure Desktop, I think there are options as hell. You only have to ask Raptor ;)
I'm located in Germany. In this case the customs are equal to VAT (19%).

And regarding Vikings, the more people show interest, the faster things will change. At the latest when Raptor brings out the POWER10 or a notebook I will ask Vikings about it, too. My delivery took two weeks.

You don't need to update the Firmware. If you want to update, it's pretty easy. Even as a non-programmer.

What is the problem with the installer of Debian? I installed several distributions. Almost all worked without a problem. Debain, too.

About glamour etc.: You only have to create a file and C&P a few chars. That's it.

In the meantime, it would be good to collect some Linux experience before buying a BB.

Linux is different from Windows or Mac. You cannot install Linux and expect a MacOS. Linux will remain Linux.
If you are looking for support, IRC is very helpful. There are mostly developers there, but everyone is very helpful.
But what is really basic is the will to educate yourself and the ability to use Google search properly.
If this will is not brought along, then it will be very difficult. Because as I said, Linux will never become MacOS.
I had MacOS before my BB and the beginning was really hard.

But maybe you're right and some things are changed in two years. I have no objection ;)

I don't have that system by my own, but you could see it on the picture: Phoronix

I would call it "enhanced cooling system" instead of different.

I think it's only called Blackbird II, because of the different cooling system.

Just out of curiosity, do you also have a MPC86xx-RDB or T4240-RDB from Freescale? If so, maybe you can do some benchmarks with the Phoronix Test Suite? :)

Blackbird / Re: Heatsink dual fan configuration

I thought shawnanastasio / dormito are the same person. Sorry about that.

In the next couple days I will do some small modifications on my setup. Also I will put in an ASSMANN AK-610300-003-E. Then I have a serial connection. What just comes to my mind, wouldn't it be better to buy another chip and program bangBMC on it? Then you can easily change the chips if needed. I have a Bus Pirate, too.

Could you please post a picture of your 2U heat sink setup?
Never seen one. :-[

At the end, it's a 3U HSF, little bit smaller and without fan.

@mx08 or @ shawnanastasio:
In the next few days would like to update to bangBMC. Is the procedure identical to Updating the BMC firmware?
Or how do I proceed?

And is there a comparison table (features/ pros and cons) somewhere between OpenBMC and bangBMC?

GPU Compute / Accelerators / Re: powerxcell 8i

You killed the nVidia? Not working anymore? You need a working Mac graphic card otherwise the Mac won't boot. Or you have a modified OFW ;)
Here is the english version of the manual. Should be almost the same. It's Version 17. Yours is V18.

It doesn't look like this card will work under PowerPC, but it's worth a try.

According to the manual the whole thing works under CentOS 4.5 and YDL6. The YDL repositories should still be online. Maybe you can find drivers there.

Here you can find YDL: Download
This is the product page: Fixstars

Probably none of this is news to you. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything more in a hurry. In any case it is very interesting

The comments wasn't the problem. Comments are only comments.

Compare your output of
Code: [Select]
lspci | grep VGA with the lines of the created file.These must be identical.

Note the numbers to the left of the "VGA compatible controller" string. Each of these numbers is the PCI d:B:D.F[note 1] number of the GPU, and is unique to the slot(s) you have your GPU(s) installed in. As a result of this slot dependence, bus IDs may differ from those shown in this example; always use your bus IDs when following the steps below. This slot dependence means that if you move your GPU to a different slot you will need to update the bus ID associated with that GPU.

Wayland or X? If it's Wayland, that might be your problem. See

Thanks for the link, BTW. At the end this was the only solution.
