Applications and Porting / Re: Chromium and Ungoogled Chromium DNF Repository
« Last post by MauryG5 on July 26, 2021, 12:52:38 pm »
Hello TLE friend, of course I am very interested in doing it, then having a teacher like you is an honor for me! I tried to compile Chromium 87 myself, when you published the sources and the procedure I managed without problems, if the procedure is always the same I have no problems doing it, the problem is that I don't know where to find the sources of the other versions like 88 or 89 etc etc ... If I found the sources I think I would have no problem compiling, always repeat, the procedure is always the same otherwise you should just teach me the new one ... free yourself for the next version ... :)

Operating Systems and Porting / Re: Fedora 33 LTS 5.10.x kernel RPMs

Yes, I'm not excited for a working version, I just wanted to share this discovery with you because apparently the behavior of these Kernels varies depending on the GPU used and so I thought I'd let you know that at the moment also on Navi 10, the Kernel official Fedora works in version 5.13.4 which in any case is a good thing because at least now we can also count on a recent Kernel that remains for the future. I'll try as they update to see what happens in the next versions. In any case I wanted to use the Kernel compiled by me but unfortunately that I wrote in the dedicated post, version 5.13 I can't compile it because it gives me an error and I don't understand the reason why those errors ...

Don't celebrate prematurely. Historically things could get regressed again in the next minor version. Hard to tell what's exactly going on if AMD don't reveal what's inside the black box binary blob

Hi TLE, you had to stop with the development of Chromium apparently, there are no more new versions since I'm seeing and I don't know where to get the sources after 87 to be able to compile it myself unfortunately ...

I've been fully occupied at work. I will try to find time to bump the version to latest. I am more than happy to teach you how to if you are interested.

Fedora COPR was doing migration to new datacenter last year. The move's seems to be progressing well.

From what I know, some POWER8 machines are now back online

Ref: https://pagure.io/fedora-infrastructure/issue/9059

That means we could now build custom RPMs for Fedora with COPR again

GPU Compute / Accelerators / Re: AMD rendering issues with Debian Bullseye

I can well understand your displeasure. My first contact with Linux was with my Blackbird. At the beginning it was really hard to understand everything. But with time it gets better.

I didn't update to firmware 2.0 because it has too many disadvantages for me.
But IIRC, you have to decompress the image-bmc twice.

Also a good howto has been written by ClassicHasClass: https://www.talospace.com/2020/02/messing-with-new-20-bmc.html

I'm pretty sure the GPU issues has nothing to do with the BMC firmware.

Could or have you already posted your xorg config file?
And how is your computer connected to the display?
Do you use the AST GPU till Petitboot and then you switch to the AMD GPU or do you only use the AMD GPU?

What happens if you try to mount the media in the Petitboot shell? Do you see files?

7/24

Updated the BMC and PNOR to v2.00 firmware, following the correct [urlhttps://forums.raptorcs.com/index.php/topic,68.msg715.html#msg715]information[/url].

It seems to have taken, but now USB boot media can no longer be booted. It just hangs with a Sigterm event. I also see that the BMC firmware now shows as 0.00.0000 for some reason.

To be quite honest, I am getting pretty tired of fighting with this thing since June. I'm going to try a few more things but am prepared to begrudgingly shelve this hardware.

Guys, I inform you that to my great surprise, the official Fedora kernel, now in version 5.13.4, has begun to work regularly with Navi 10, although the page size continues to be 64K. Evidently they must have changed something in the drivers or some other changes made and now it has resumed working. Every now and then a good news! As I told TLE in a past post, it still didn't work for me in version 5.11.12. It started for him with the R9 but nothing for me with the 5700 XT. Now it seems that they have fixed the problem on the 5700 finally and it also does the automatic switching of the GPU, which before, when it started working on Navi 10, it did not do and you had to change video output from the monitor manually to switch from internal ST to external GPU.

If you built it yourself, yes, you would need to build updates as well.
