Fienix desktop in the virtual e5500 QEMU machine
Great!

In which host is the VM running?
Is it running purely software emulated on an Intel based machine,
software emulated on a PowerPC,
or running naively with KVM on a PowerPC?

@caseycullen I gave Fienix a try on our development board based on the NXP T2080 CPU (e6500) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v66P2HaH4M0 I have installed Fienix on a compact flash, then used the onboard SATA with the following adapter https://www.amazon.com/Adapter-Compact-Memory-Serial-Converter/dp...

Re: Spectre660's Linux downloads for the Sam440/460

@Spectre660 I have tried installing Ubuntu MATE 16.04 using your latest ISO on my Sam460ex. First time I had a kernel crash during installation, the second time all went just fine. The second time I opened the case, might have a heating problems as the CPU does not have a fan. Rebooted and MATE was ...

Re: Spectre660's Linux downloads for the Sam440/460

@Spectre660 Thank you, patching the kernel in that way is much easier ;) I noticed that in the kernel config only "PPC4xx_MSI" is active. I was wondering what "PPC4xx_HSTA_MSI" means, do you know? As far as I can tell is something related to Message Signalled Interrupts (MSI), and High Speed Transfe...

Re: Spectre660's Linux downloads for the Sam440/460

@Spectre660 I have tried installing Ubuntu (MATE) 16.04 on my Sam460 using your ISO based on kernel 4.4.0. Big success! For the first time all went smooth, I even did not need to create the "menu.lst" manually from the command line or copy the uImage file, all was done automatically! A really great ...

Wine for non-x86 hardware

Here a status report on Wine (Windows compatibility layer without emulating an entire computer) for non-x86 hardare (PowerPC, ARM, MIPS). PowerPC does not seems attracting any interest, it is nearly there to be dropped, maybe we can show some interest! Here the status report by André Hentschel, a Wi...

Re: Radeon driver v2.7 and R7 250E: no HDMI and no DVI outpu

@Hans
My PCIGraphics.card is v53.9 (20 Jul 2014, 80.380 bytes), so that's might be the origin of the problem I encounter.
Is it possible for a non beta-tester like me to test a newer unreleased version that might solve the problem?

Re: Radeon driver v2.7 and R7 250E: no HDMI and no DVI outpu

@Hans What do you mean by saying "you may need to use the debug version to get useful info"? There's a debug version of the driver. The file is RadeonHD.chip.debug, but you do need to make sure that it's the same version as your RadeonHD.chip driver (I'm not sure if that one gets automatically updat...
