Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

- "-z" has to be removed in the "ramdisk" line I tested it today. Both are working. I was able to boot with "-z" and without "-z". You're right, I tested again with "-z" and that works. I suppose the first time, I made a syntax error elsewhere on the line ... Anyway ... I still don't know how to in...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04 and Radeon R7 250

Please note : Hardware 3D acceleration doesn't work with the Radeon HD7xxx series and above (Radeon SI). You need a Radeon HD6xxx series or below. I use Ubuntu 16.04 with a Radeon HD 7770. I knew there will be no hardware 3D acceleration but ... it also crashes with software rendering with an illeg...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

With the following commands you can boot Fienix 3.0-20200426 with an initial ramdisk from a USB disk: setenv bootargs "root=LABEL=FIENIX-DISK rootdelay=5" ramdisk -z -addr=0x24000000 -fatfs usbdisk0:initrd-5.5.img boot -elf -noints -fatfs -z usbdisk0:zImage-5.5 It takes a long time. I would recomme...

Re: X1000 RAM & Debian Squeeze Linux questions

@xeno74

Sorry for the long delay ... I tested both 5.6 and 5.7-rc6: with 4 GB installed, Ubuntu boots well but with 8 GB there is the same crash (causing a machine reboot).

Re: X1000 RAM & Debian Squeeze Linux questions

Today I tested 4 pc 4GB memory sticks. I.e. 16GB total. Strange thing, my X1000 succesfully boots only to AmigaOS ( which is unfortunately use 2GB only). Linux (debian8, fienix, kernel 4.2, 4.20) reboots or freeze. I made captures of serial debug and will inspect them later - but from first sight l...

Re: ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 Live DVD

As we are talking about FPS, could you tell how to interpret the 3 values in supertuxkart (I will run it later again). Which 3 values do you mean? You can see them in the first screenshot of this page: http://blog.supertuxkart.net/2011/01/graphical-goodness.html Looking at it now, I suppose it mean...

Re: ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 Live DVD

@xeno74 About parted_devices, you don't have the first 3 lines but ... one unexpected. So the result is the same: a crash. Too bad about WebKitWebProces ... an error could not be worst than happening in WebKit :-( Will see if it is possible to circumvent that ... I definitely thought my X1000 under ...

Re: ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 Live DVD

I've found the reason of the ubiquity crash. The tool parted_devices is used and here it gives: $ sudo parted_devices Pralloc = 0, Reserved = 2, blocksize = 4, root block at 586272 Pralloc = 0, Reserved = 2, blocksize = 4, root block at 1768296 Pralloc = 0, Reserved = 2, blocksize = 2, root block at...

Re: ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 Live DVD

@xeno74 Ok, I'm back after xmas holidays. The user was not in the video but adding it does not change anything. If it is required, that should be done at installation. About OpenGL in glxinfo: $ glxinfo | grep -i opengl OpenGL vendor string: X.Org OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD TURKS (DR...

Re: ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 Live DVD

Then, I have to say that the user experience is a bit disappointing ... but it seems the gfx acceleration is not enabled. glxinfo says: OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 11.2.0 OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20 ...
