Great news, unfortunately the 6.8.x series kernels perform poorly with SSD, below average from the last two years ;)

Just curious to know if 6.9 would address this issue

Operating Systems and Porting / [NEWS] Fedora 40 is officially released!
« Last post by tle on April 23, 2024, 09:29:08 am »
More info: https://fedoramagazine.org/announcing-fedora-linux-40/

The F40 brings GNOME 46 and Linux kernel 6.8.7. Chromium RPM package is officially supported.

IMHO it is probably the best version for my blackbird till date. All sluggish gfx regression of mutter is gone, everything runs pretty snappy.

amdgpu works out of the box (well the only thing that does not work is no HDMI signal which does not impact me much as I am using DisplayPort)

There are a bit bugs with certain apps for example GNOME Loupe could not open image file.

The GetVSyncParametersIfAvailable() error occurs when the window changes focus, I think.

Initial research indicated this might be a Wayland issue, but it also occurs under X.

Possibly I don't have a dependency installed or at the correct version. chromium-browser was installed with dnf, though.

If the correct procedure is "wait for the actual 40 release" I'm happy to do that.  :)

I would totally expect rough edges because it's been like few years gap since that last effort from the community to support latest version on Fedora/RHEL.

I highly recommend you file report any bug to Fedora, I know Than Ngo is actively working on polishing things up for the Fedora 40 release tomorrow.

Applications and Porting / [DEV] wasmtime is a porting blocker for many rust-based apps
« Last post by tle on April 22, 2024, 05:55:20 pm »
Rustlang-based apps have emerged as the most trendy language/tech choice for Linux apps lately.

Because of lacking of ppc64le backend in wasmtime, many popuilar apps such as Zed text editor, DenoJS could not be ported to ppc64le. There was a report from lleabout (https://github.com/bytecodealliance/wasmtime/issues/1183) in the past but it did not produce any result yet.

If any member who could take on the work, I am more than happy to crowd source a bounty to reward for their efforts.

Well I think it's still early in fact, then as we know Fedora being a constant test bed has several defects which the developers then correct by running it on the various platforms of us end users and therefore I think that the beta releases are even worse in terms of bugs. Let's wait for the final version of Fedora to arrive and then see how Chromium runs. We have to start again after years of missing this browser. However, for some time now I have seen that the original Google search engine can be used again and now Chromium is also coming out and no longer ungoogled Chromium like a short time ago. Maybe Google has allowed us to use Power again, who knows... Or maybe Raptor still manages to run the regular version, bypassing the block they put in place at the time, I don't know...

Blackbird / Re: Availability of P9 hardware post-ISA 3.1 HW launch

Blackbird / Availability of P9 hardware post-ISA 3.1 HW launch
« Last post by lepidotos on April 13, 2024, 12:38:51 am »
As far as I know, the plan for the Solid Silicon hardware is to release late this year. Will there be a period where you can buy either a Blackbird or the new offering, or will it directly replace it? I assume Vikings keeps a couple in stock at any one time so they'll wait until they run out to discontinue their listing, but I'm not in Europe.

Thanks.
