The announcement page doesn't really tell us much about the impact for ppc64* users.  This is where it would be really useful to have tags for ppc64* issues, we could then run a report in the BTS and see exactly which issues were fixed by each new release and which issues are fixed in unstable and ready for backporting.

Guys but do you know if this last relase of Debian supports AMD Navi 10 by any chance? Or do you have to wait for Debian 11...

guys good morning, sorry but why does Debian not recognize the optical disc player that the other distributions recognize automatically immediately?  I am obviously talking about our Power version because in the X86 version this problem does not exist ... Even Ubuntu that derives from Debian does not have this problem ... What should be done to make it recognize it, is there any driver or is there any procedure to be performed?  Thanks

Hi Xlinder, yes I understand that from the operating system it works smoothly, I'm talking about when you have to install Debian from the beginning, when you copy to the optical disc the ISO image downloaded from the official Debian website and start the installation process. At a certain point, after choosing the language and the keyboard type, the installer tells me that it doesn't see the optical disc drive and I don't understand why... Everyone sees it in a direct way and I don't understand why the Debian installer is the only one who doesn't see it...

done well but with the key it does not start the installation from petit boot, whether I copy the iso image directly as I download it, or if I put the ISO file through a procedure with Shell.  Eventually I managed to install it by putting both.  With the DVD I started the installation and with the stick I did the installation once I entered ... I honestly don't understand this strange behavior of Debian.  Now I am installing gnome and the optical drive works fine ... Anyway, apart from these oddities, do you or someone else know by chance where to download the 5.9.6 kernel for Debian Power?  Thanks

The 5.9.6 kernel is in backports

You can look here to see it really built for ppc64le:

https://buildd.debian.org/status/package.php?p=linux&suite=buster-backports

To install it, after you installed Debian, you type something like this:

$ sudo apt install -t buster-backports linux-image-powerpc64le

Hi Pocock, thanks for reporting, I'll do as you tell me.  The thing I am seeing for now is that for me Debian runs very badly at the moment, it jerks ... Obviously at the moment I have to use it with Blackbird video output but the resolution is still low so I don't know if it depends on the graphics server or  other...

Do a lsmod in a terminal and see if there are several amdgpu modules installed.
 Then Look in /lib/firmware for your GPU and make sure all the firmware for the card is in there.

Xlinder sorry, but I have to do the ismod command after installing the 5.9.6 kernel right? I don't think that at the moment with 4.19 there can be support for recent AMD GPUs like my Navi 10 ... The problem is that at the moment it jerks and I don't know if I can make it go well, let's see if I have to do everything as a server and so I should exit with ctrl, alt, F2 to return to server mode and from there type ismod and possibly also install the kernel or I can do it from desktop ...
