User Zone / Re: Sound card enabling

You could use USB audio in the meantime. It's cheap and it generally "just works." I thought about a soundcard but I don't really need much other than stereo audio on this machine currently.

I wouldn't. At best you'll have an expensive chip that won't achieve full throughput; at worst the power draw might blow something. You really need the T2 Lite or full T2 for that.

What's better about it as compared to, say, DarkPlaces? (I use that and ioquake3 to get my id fix.)

3U/4U seems kind of big, yes. If you have that much airflow then you might be okay.

Applications and Porting / vkQuaje runs Quake 1 (shareware) perfectly

Yup the vkQuake, vulkan port of Quake runs flawlessly on my Fedora 32 (rawhide) box. The `make` does complain about missing `-lvulkan` which can be solved easily by doing soft link
Code: [Select]
sudo ln -sf /usrlib64/libvulkan.so.1.2.131 /usr/lib64/libvulkan.so

It's possible, but not at full speed. It's linked through the power consumption -> Mainboard VRMs

Ubuntu did not recognize the NVMe device as installation target due to an internal bug.

Eg. @tle reported this error as
> Failed attempt to install Ubuntu Server 19.10 because the installer failed to pick up NVMe drive correctly

I have documented a workaround in my wiki user page:

Firmware / Re: [Guide] How to run firmware temporariliy
« Last post by FlyingBlackbird on February 16, 2020, 01:39:40 am »
Did you find a way to temporarily update PNOR and OpenBMC together (in sync) since this is the recommended procedure...?

The wiki also describes how to run the OpenBMC firmware temporariliy but I am not sure how and if this works in sync with a PNOR update

Blackbird / Support for POWER9 22core?
« Last post by tle on February 15, 2020, 09:05:04 pm »
The official product page of blackbird stated that the motherboard support up to 8-core POWER9. Wondering if it is possible to use the POWER9 22core?
