Yes, I can do it but unfortunately I don't know the procedure to use it and provide the necessary information. I installed GDB but I have never used it and I don't know what procedure to follow. Meanwhile the updates continue and the problem persists in the same way...

Just made a new Chromium update but unfortunately the problem hasn't been resolved yet... It seems like this is a long time coming... I don't know if the developers are aware of the problem, someone has reported it to the team Fedora? I haven't used Fedora for a long time so I don't even remember how to do it anymore... :)

So far it has not done that for me. If possible, could you please install gdb and collect more info when the app crashes and report it to Fedora team?

Seems there were some people waiting for Rust to support AIX, which it has now for ~1.5 years now. https://twitter.com/aklyachkin/status/1604802368331202563

GPU Compute / Accelerators / Re: Intel Arc Support in Kernel 6.8
« Last post by Hasturtium on May 21, 2024, 10:01:13 am »
Phoronix put up an article on May 12th indicating that a branch of Xe intended for merging into kernel 6.10 runs with some stability issues on an Ampere Altra. Obviously ARM's not Power, and I have a feeling there's something fidgety about the Altra's PCIe root complex that doesn't apply to our kit, so maybe we'll be in luck soon...? I may be crazy for dreaming that the 16GB Arc A770 I have sitting in a box would be a nicer option than the 8GB RX 6600 I'm currently running, but here's hoping.

who knows, there's some cheaper surplus offerings on ebay and the like. maybe they'll do a liquidation sale on the older boards whenever the new stuff rolls out

What was the issue with dosbox-staging? Something I should look at or do you think it's packaging-specific?

I got segfault when trying to run Master of Orion II

Good news for polymc/prismlauncher users!!

https://github.com/PrismLauncher/PrismLauncher/files/15281869/1.15.2-ppc64le.zip This instance should 'just work' on multimc, polymc, or prismlauncher. (I can't test multimc but it works on a veryy old build of poly so it *should*:TM:)

The explanation for which is here: ( and more details here https://github.com/PrismLauncher/PrismLauncher/issues/2392 )

This is the same file mentioned but with a little change: the commit you mentioned added support for multiple architectures so instead of having just "linux" we check for "linux-ppc64le" so the only change was where you find "linux": "natives-linux" inside a "natives" object I added another line "linux-ppc64le": "natives-linux",
Quote
we decided to change linux to be equivalent to linux-x86_64 and linux-x86. So if you are on a CPU architecture other than x86_64/x86, it will try to use linux-<cpu-arch>

This also means that a single instance can now support many targets: amd64, x86, ppc64le, riscv, and so on.

You can also cp `~/.local/share/{PrismLauncher,PolyMC}/instances/{instancename}/patches/org.lwjgl3.json` of the instance i linked to the `patches` subdir of any instance (for any MC version that uses <= the provided version of LWJGL3) to make it run on ppc64le.

Official builds for lwjgl3 on ppc64le are now available https://www.lwjgl.org/customize right here! Completely customizable too. Lwjgl is a pain to build, so this is very very welcome.

I'm going to try getting changes in polymc/prismlauncher themselves to "just work" on ppc64le-- automatically detecting the arch, and when mojang doesn't provide the needed natives, download from lwjgl.org. No promises on that though. The other option is to pester mojang to provide natives themselves for ppc64le........ if anyone wants to take that on, feel free :p

I'm also going to try PR'ing lwjgl3ify (a 1.7.10 forge mod making it compatible with modern java and lwjgl3) to provide sections for `linux-ppc64le` in their default pack instances, to make that just work ootb. https://p.rrogal.ski/l/mc.png
