An example that I can give you quick, tried a few days ago, I tried to enter the Motorola site, I simply did www.motorola.com, did it more than once and none of the times Firefox managed to enter ... Now I don't have tried with the latest version ...

Applications and Porting / Re: Chromium and Ungoogled Chromium DNF Repository

Please be more specific about what's not working in Firefox (preferably an example website). I haven't encountered any problems myself, but Mozilla is willing to accept fixes, and we've gotten them upstreamed easily in the past. If it's a performance problem, however, then that's what the JIT is designed to fix, and it is progressing rapidly.

No Classic, I was talking about Firefox in general, I was not talking about Firefox on Ubuntu specifically, attention. The problem Firefox has on Ubuntu is that it has a probable conflict with Ubuntu security software and consequently doesn't make Firefox bookmark work but I'm not talking about that. I am talking about the current limitations that Firefox has on some sites where either it does not go at all or is struggling and I am not referring to the Ubuntu version of the Firefox on Power in general. For the bookmarks problem we have reopened the problem with the friend amock who also uses Ubuntu, we wrote that this problem still exists and if they can solve it but I am referring to the navigation problems in general of Firefox not to bookmarks ... Firefox on Power, unfortunately it still reveals less performing and with some limitations compared to Chromium and this creates a big problem since Chromium has remained stationary and or sooner or later if it will no longer be updated, the time will come that we will no longer be able to use it and if Firefox continue with these limitations, we will be out of navigation on a global level ... I also encountered the same problems when I was using Fedora. I haven't used Fedora for a short time, but until recently when I was using it, the problem was still the same on Firefox.

Maury, as you've mentioned elsewhere, this seems to be something specific to Ubuntu's Firefox package. Fedora's doesn't have problems like you describe and neither does (to the best of knowledge) Void. If Ubuntu's screwing up their build somehow, that's probably not something that can be fixed on Mozilla's end. What do the Ubuntu port maintainers say about it?

I was talking about Firefox not working on some sites, not Chromium ... Firefox is not working on some sites today.

Which site does not work with Chromium 87?

Guys, I inform you that given the stalemate that has arisen on Chromium, I wrote directly to Raptor to point out what is becoming a problem for our Power systems or the lack of a well-functioning browser for our architecture.  Unfortunately Firefox, you all know that despite the efforts to be praised by his friend Classic Has, he still cannot browse all sites, there are sites he cannot even enter.  So it is clear that something needs to be done to solve this problem otherwise we will be out of global navigation which in 2022 is unthinkable for a modern computer.  Evidently TLE is no longer able to develop versions after 87 and we have been stuck for some time now.  Raptor is meeting to decide what to do and I hope they find a solution soon.  If anyone needs Chromium continuity support let me know I'm happy to help.

GPU Compute / Accelerators / Re: AMD OpenCL / ROCm

What's the specific code you're looking at? Usually stuff with the FPSCR doesn't necessarily need to be ported directly; the Power FPU tends to "do the right thing."

Disappointing there's that little interest in fixing what seems to be largely a packaging problem.

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

I'll say in all honesty I've had other issues with gdm and I just don't use it anymore on Fedora (strict text boot, manually start Xorg). Are you Xorg or Wayland?

I just tested Fedora 35 workstation today.

  • ast (integrated HDMI): works successfully (x11)

I powered down, placed the VGA disable jumper and tried the GPU.

  • amdgpu (polaris family card): works successfully (wayland, did not test x11)

I find it very convenient that Fedora includes the amdgpu firmware OOB. After testing this I can infer that the issue is not the GPU, video cable or cable type, board/firmware or conflict with other parts/peripherals. In fact, Debian has been a pretty poor showing on PPC lately.

  • Since at least Buster, Debian fails to update initramfs automatically upon installation of firmware-amd-graphics.
  • Since Bullseye (and retroactively?), Debian fails to enable the ast kernel module. Users wishing to install Debian must interact with the whiptail installer through serial to install and enable this module.  ::)
  • Now, it seems, there is an issue somewhere in the display stack affecting Debian on PPC. x11 environments yield rendering issues that make the system unusable, while wayland (GNOME) does not even make it to the greeter.

The OS specific wiki page basically exists because of me. Sorry, RCS support. Can I send you some pizza?
