Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

Okay so I managed to remove Compton. I was able to a chroot to my Fienix volume to apt remove it. But it made no change. Still got blank screen. I was able to stop it later by putting recovery mode into boot args. However I got stuck at the password again. It wants a password for maintenance. I keep...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

Hi Hypex, Have you already removed Compton in another console (CTRL + ALT + F key) with "apt-get remove compton"? I haven't, no. Because I'm unable to reach a console. There is no response from the keyboard. I was trying to follow the instructions from the Fienix blog. I'm think I might n...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

Sorry xeno74, the problem is my fault. I didn't realise it but I had a rogue ramdisk messing up the kernel. If you notice the alloc_bottom was rather high. I cleared out the ramdisk and the kernel loaded fine. I didn't test any other kernels after finding the source to the corruption. But it gets st...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

Thamks for the hint xeno74. I haven't got that far. I'm experiencing an issue with kernel 5.6. It's giving me this. Need to check I've got the right version. OF stdout device is: /bootconsole Preparing to boot Linux version 5.6.0_A-EON_X1000_Nemo (christian@christian-TUXEDO-InfinityBook-14-v2) (gcc ...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04 and Radeon R7 250

Hardware 3D acceleration doesn't work with the Radeon HD7xxx series and above (Radeon SI). You need a Radeon HD6xxx series or below. That means you can't use hardware 3D acceleration for games and videos with your RadeonHD7800 Series card. Does this also affect the desktop? Such as causing Gnome to...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

I would recommend you to use " dd " instead of rsync. After that you can expand the file system with " resize2fs " to the total size of the partition.\ After my experience I agree. However I'm now stuck resizing it. Due to a dependency issue. I set up a ~10GB partition for it as...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

Okay never mind. Decided to wipe it. Can't believe rsync was sitting there over an hour copying only what was needed. I did a dd with a BS of 16M and it was done in 2 minutes! :shock: Then I put on the modules. And rebooted into it. It loaded up and kernel was booting. Butt then it stopped on a blin...

Re: Fienix - New PowerPC Distro

Hi guys. Good to see ongoing work progressing. I installed and tried to boot Fienix but am stuck at login. It just won't accept user or login. Does the latest Fienix still use the same login? I got a terminal and it stopped for log in. I wonder if it's due to how I installed it. I mounted the image ...

Ubuntu 14.04 and Radeon R7 250

Hi guys. I'm currently running Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS on my X1000. Yes it's got a bit old. It keeps opening a window to offer Ubuntu 14.04. I'd like to upgrade it but it warns me of a potential issue with my Radeon card being unsupported. I updated my card from a HD5450 to this R7 250 and it was fine in...
