Hi All,

The Power Progress Community has released the Firefox ESR 52.8.0 (64 bit) recompiled with gcc 7.3.0 and patched for Debian Sid ppc64. Packages are available in their repository.

Repository: https://repo.powerprogress.org/debian

Please test it.

Thanks,
Christian

FYI;

Adrian wrote:Hello!

Since powerpc is now part of Debian Ports, everyone who is running
Debian on powerpc needs to update their /etc/apt/sources.list to
be able to continue tracking unstable.

The new sources.list should look like:

# binary default
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unstable main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unreleased main

# source
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main

If you want to include packages which were just built on the buildds,
use:

# binary default
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unstable main
deb http://incoming.ports.debian.org/buildd/ unstable main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unreleased main

# source
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src http://incoming.debian.org/debian-buildd/ buildd-unstable main

And if you use experimental, use without incoming:

# binary default
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unstable main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unreleased main
# source
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ experimental main


And experimental with incoming:

# binary default
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unstable main
deb http://incoming.ports.debian.org/buildd/ unstable main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unreleased main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ experimental main
# source
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src http://incoming.debian.org/debian-buildd/ buildd-unstable main
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ experimental main
deb-src http://incoming.debian.org/debian-buildd/ buildd-experimental main

You may have to add these lines to your /etc/apt/preferences to
avoid packages from experimental getting installed automatically:

root@sompek:~# cat /etc/apt/preferences
Package: *
Pin: release a=experimental
Pin-Priority: 1
root@sompek:~#

Let me know if you have any issues. I will update the debian-installer
images for powerpc (and all other architectures) in the following
days.

from the non-free repository. This means, if you need a package
from non-free and it's not an arch-all package (_all.deb suffix),
you will have to build that package yourself.

We might build contrib and non-free packages for Debian Ports
in the future, but I am not sure whether that's possible from
the legal point of view.

# apt install debian-ports-archive-keyring

In case you are prompted to install from an untrusted source, say "Y".

Then run "apt update" again.

There was a plenty of updates available for Debian Buster PP64... I selected them all and started the update process. Download went ok, but there were some problems in the installation step... After I rebooted Debian, it was not anymore able to open the desktop (no error messages, just blinking cursor on black backround screen).

I was able to open a terminal window with F2 and log in, but 'Startx' was not succesful, the server gave up trying to open a desktop. 'llightdm' was an unknown command to the terminal.

What steps should I use to get the distro again 'on it's feet'?
