Blackbird / Re: LPC Guard questions

Although Raptor can confirm, my bet is it's implemented. The way it's described in the update, the kernel wouldn't need to be aware of it.

Yes, having a second system is a good idea. My Blackbird serves this role for my T2.

No Borley the problem is not Navi 10 but with the Blackbird video output ... As soon as you finish installing and restart the operating system you just installed, initially you have not put anything yet and therefore it works by default with the video output of the card mother and the problem is right at the beginning then. Fedora or Ubuntu never gave me this problem as soon as they were installed, only Debian is giving all these problems and the Navi GPU I haven't even used yet. The problem is fundamental and I do not honestly understand what could be wrong, I downloaded the 10.7 version which has recently come out so the most updated ... Also another absurd thing is that I do not authenticate the root for the super user and this is incredible honestly because during the installation I have reported username and password as requested ... I don't understand honestly why this distro is so problematic, I just don't understand ... I'm very disappointed!

It has me regretting not grabbing a second board before they sold out last summer. I need a solid testbed before Debian releases another stable.

Navi 10 is newer than the latest Debian stable, right? It is possible that the firmware is not yet present in firmware-amd-graphics.

You might need to also install the backport for it until you move to Bullseye

guys then this Debian is a nightmare for me. Not only does it work terrible after installation, it jerks and is unusable but it doesn't even let me log in as root. When I try to authenticate with SU and after entering the password, it tells me that the authentication has failed and it always does even if I try to change the password. For me this Debian is totally unusable ...

Blackbird / LPC Guard questions
« Last post by resonant on December 24, 2020, 11:37:10 am »
per this document from crowdsupply about LPC Guard

https://www.crowdsupply.com/raptor-computing-systems/talos-secure-workstation/updates/talos-fpga-functions-and-responsibilities-part-1

is it correct to assume that LPC Guard is present in blackbird and talos ii mainboards?

is LPC Guard implemented in hw/fw, where it is passively applied, or does it need to be implemented in the os?

LPC Guard is a pretty attractive feature, thus my interest.

Blackbird / Re: How's the FlexVer connector used?

https://www.crowdsupply.com/raptor-computing-systems/talos-secure-workstation/updates/talos-fpga-functions-and-responsibilities-part-2

my inference from the above marketing pdf and article on crowdsupply is that there is an additional fpga board that connects to the flexver connector.

can anyone comment on the availability of these fpga boards?

Blackbird / mainboards on backorder
« Last post by resonant on December 24, 2020, 11:18:56 am »
i've been checking the online store every few weeks for the past several months and the blackbird mainboards continue to show as backordered.

can someone from raptor give insight into what is driving the unavailability of blackbird boards? i expect earlier batch(es) sold out and there is a wait for the next batch to arrive.

i am keen to get one of these systems for testing, but i would like to know more about how long i should expect to wait between ordering it and receiving it before placing an order.
