Applications and Porting / Re: Firefox 91 ESR on void vs Firefox on Fedora 36

Yes, you can do this, though 91ESR is no longer supported. I've finally got spare cycles to finish pulling it up to 102ESR and then trying to get the last problems ironed out of it.

In theory it is possible. You can download the SRPM or the git source from the Fedora git tree then add the patch (hopefully it is trivial).

The oscillator is mentioned in this commit

From that commit:

<pre>
-   // Implement nasty ring oscillator for fallback use when main system clock is offline
-   // Thanks to Clifford Wolf for the idea and basic code!
</pre>

Wow, I'm surprised they have to use a LUT-based ring oscillator here.  All the Xilinx and Altera FPGAs I've ever dealt with had an internal "hard" (not made of LUTs) ring oscillator that could be routed into the fabric.  Still not great, but more predictable than LUTs.  Don't the Lattice ICE chips have this?  Can't the PLLs be used for this (use the slowest setting, ignore the lock signal)?

Anyways, if your board has the external oscillator you should definitely use it.

Ahh that would make sense. Is it still possible to compile 91esr with those patches on fedora?

Thanks for all your suggestions and discussions here!

I have handed-over the hardware now 10 days ago and want to keep the recipient unpublished for privacy reasons.

I also confirm what MPC and Classic said, when I was using Fedora, I had configured Thunderbird as a mail client and it worked perfectly. The problem is limited to the Debian and derived versions ...

IIRC, on Void (Firefox-ESR) the ClassicHasClass JIT patch is included. So this should be the difference.

Applications and Porting / Firefox 91 ESR on void vs Firefox on Fedora 36
« Last post by r34per on September 23, 2022, 10:26:54 am »
I dual boot void linux and fedora 36 on my Blackbird, and on void I have Firefox ESR 91, and on Fedora I use Firefox 104. One thing I have noticed is that firefox 91-esr is quite a bit quicker with JS related tasks than Firefox 104 on fedora.To be honest it feels just overall snappier. In fact some sites just straight up don't work on firefox 104 whereas they do on firefox 91, such as https://deepsid.chordian.net . The console gives an error (I will post the specific one when I am back home), that when I looked it up has to do with webasm I believe, and I made sure that everything is enabled related to that.

Even just navigating the app menu on firefox 104 is a bit sluggish, and the highlighted option will need a sec to catch up to where my mouse is, while firefox 91 esr on void is quite snappy. What are the differences between these 2 versions, and is it possible to either 91-esr on fedora 36? Or am I missing something regarding the configuration of firefox 104 on fedora?

General CPU Discussion / Re: DD2.4?
« Last post by ClassicHasClass on September 22, 2022, 06:24:28 pm »
My understanding is DD2.2 is no longer manufactured. Any that you buy are used or NOS.

I have not heard of a DD2.4 stepping and given IBM's current concentration on Power10 it doesn't seem likely.

General CPU Discussion / DD2.4?
« Last post by jas on September 22, 2022, 04:44:39 am »
Hi.  Is a DD2.4 CPU stepping planned, and are there any public resources to track what would go into it?  And the timeline of it.

I noticed Raptor CS stopped selling DD2.2, does this indicate they are no longer being manufactured?
