Re: General questions about PPC unixes for x5000

@xeno74 Strange... My one is Radeon X1950 PRO, which means R6000, right? But so far all tests show the same speed in most tests like Warp3D nova on os4 which is without DMA. Maybe it needs to be enabled somehow? What I also found, that with Radeon X1950 PRO, all the textures in all the 3D apps are m...

Re: General questions about PPC unixes for x5000

@Roland
What I mean is 3D support mostly (as for video decoding there probably different kinds of optimization used). I just want to know if DMA is used in 3D drivers on Linux PPC at all, as it feels like NO.

Re: General questions about PPC unixes for x5000

@xeno What exactly version of RadeonHD6xxxx is the faster and best one for Linux? Also, Radeon HD 7xxxx is not supported on PPC linuxes on x5000 in full? Why I ask, because Radeon HD 7xxxx is at least those ones supported by Warp3DNova, so I can make a fair comparison. And the last question: is Linu...

Re: General questions about PPC unixes for x5000

@xeno74 Download it and replace the uImage in the boot partition and then "fatload sata 0:1 1000000 uImage-5.12". Right, booted now with 5.12-a7. But still no sound :( uname -a and cat /proc/version surely show that i am on 5.12-a7 now. Have any idea where to looks next? I even tried for s...

Re: General questions about PPC unixes for x5000

@Xeno74 Which kernel do you use? Older kernels need the boot argument mem=3500M. I have a SB Live (EMU10k1) and it works without any problems with new kernels. Not sure at the moment what kernel: the one coming with the latest fienix img. Probably 5.7 or something (at least on the running I do "...

Re: General questions about PPC unixes for x5000

@xeno74 After the booting of the Fienix USB stick you can test Fienix. You can also test the internet connection. If it works, then you can download the img again and save it in the partition of your booted Fienix USB stick. Ah! That means the USB stick should be not less than 16 GB, while I do test...

Re: General questions about PPC unixes for x5000

@xeno74 You can also download the img and copy with 'dd' from a booted Fienix USB stick to an HDD/SSD. You mean boot from one single flash, then download the file from the network to what place ?:) I mean, I attach HDD, which had no partitions, etc. Or you mean that I should partition it before to s...

Re: General questions about PPC unixes for x5000

@All I mostly need it for test PPC builds of the stuff I port/do, to be sure when issues are endian related, and when issues related to the amigaos4 ports themselves. So that means I need up2date GCC in it, and all stuff be working correctly and without glitches, with support of DMA transfers, local...

General questions about PPC unixes for x5000

@All Is there any PPC Linux which more or less up2date and can be booted from HDD without USB now on x5000? I mean, ok to install from USB, but just later to boot normally just from HDD? Also, is there any Linux distro that already has a working PPC RadeonHD or Radeon RX driver? Or at least the one ...
