Good news, Christian's 32-bit build of Arctic Fox runs on Fienix on my G5!
Thanks Christian! :)

Hi All,

I have great news for you! :-)

I was able to compile Arctic Fox 27.9.15 on Lubuntu 12.04.5 LTS PowerPC today. I had to add the GCC 4.8 and the libatomic1 via the repository 'ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test'. Normally it isn't possible to compile Arctic Fox on Ubuntu 12.04.X. I successfully tested it on an installed Lubuntu 12.04.5 LTS PowerPC and on a Lubuntu 12.04.0 PowerPC live DVD.

Download: arcticfox-27.9.15-ubuntu12.04-powerpc.tar.bz2

Additionally you need the libatomic1 package.

Download: libatomic-ubuntu12.04-powerpc.tar.bz2

Please copy the file 'libatomic.so.1' to '/usr/lib/powerpc-linux-gnu/' with the following command:

Code: Select all
sudo cp libatomic.so.1 /usr/lib/powerpc-linux-gnu/


After that you can start Arctic Fox with:

Code: Select all
./arcticfox

BTW, it works on the old A-EON Ubuntu Live Remix DVD for the AmigaOne X1000 too.

I wonder where I am going wrong this time. The post I copied the above from makes it sound like that is all I should need to run Arctic Fox on Ubuntu 16.04.5. I did it the same way I did 27.9.13, Engrampa to Downloads and (so far) just run it from there by clicking the icon in the Articfox13 folder. But that isn't working for 15. (My first try was to Fienix, but it didn't work there either.) Perhaps part of the problem is I have no idea how G3/G4/G5 relate to the matter. No help from Google.

The folder content lists are almost identical, except 27.9.15 has three little (899 byte) .chk files that 13 doesn't have, and an omni.ja over twice as big.

I notice I've been using 27.9.14 in fienix with no memory whatsoever of how I got it. I was hoping that "Debian9" part might mean this version of 27.9.15 should work in fienix too.

Hi Kilaueabart,

You tried the AltiVec version of Arctic Fox 27.9.15 on your X5000. It doesn't work on your X5000 because your P5020 SoC (e5500 CPUs) doesn't support AltiVec. G4, G5, e6500, and PA6T are CPUs with AltiVec support. Arctic Fox was originally created for Power Macs with installed Linux PowerPC distributions. The Power Macs use G3, G4, and G5 CPUs. But it also works on our X5000 and X1000. You need a Non-Altivec (G3) version. Please try the following packages:

Download 27.9.15 32-bit PowerPC G3 (no altivec) Linux: arcticfox-27.9.15.linux-powerpc-g3.tar.bz2

Download 27.9.15 32-bit PowerPC (no altivec - Ubuntu14/Debian8) Linux (contributed by xeno74): arcticfox-27.9.15.linux-non-altivec-powerpc.tar.bz2

On Fienix, you can install it via the default repository. Please run Synaptic and install the version 27.9.15 on Fienix.

Cheers,
Christian

Thanks, that worked in a way. I'm using it now. But what I really wanted to do was:
On Fienix, you can install it via the default repository. Please run Synaptic and install the version 27.9.15 on Fienix.
because when I used the Synaptic fienix repository for earlier versions, they got installed and I could run them from the Menu. But I can't seem to remember how to get the repository. In Synaptic I click Settings, then RepositDownload 27.9.15 32-bit PowerPC (no altivec - Ubuntu14/Debian8) Linux (contributed by xeno74): arcticfox-27.9.15.linux-non-altivec-powerpc.tar.bz2



Cheers,
Christian[/quote]ories. A little window opens: Repositories (as supervisor). Two repositories listed as "Enabled." I select the fienix one, click "OK." No repository opens. I still can't find any Arctic Fox in Synaptic newer than 27.9.14, "installed" and "newest version."

So I'm doing the same as with 16.04.5: Downloads/arcticfox/articfox. At least it works.
