Hi Peter,

Your values are OK now. You have hardware 3D acceleration now! Well done!

Hi Christian
Thanks for all your help. And thanks for Worker. I tried to compile the latest code (3.15.4) myself and it succeeded but something went wrong because I couldn't read the text in the program. Now I use your 3.3.3-2 instead

Hi Christian.

I tried this first for 3.9GB Fat16 filesystem and then exactly according your steps - 128M.
No success. NEMOBOOT cfcard always visible with Debian8/kernel 4.2 and not visible under Fienix/kernel 5.0,5.1.

Next I will try my old (slower) cfcard, and also test every kernel from 4.2 to 5.0.

Hi Peter (Musa),

There is a new web browser for Linux PPC.

It’s Arctic Fox.

Have you tested Arctic Fox 27.9.16 on Fienix yet?

Download: arcticfox-27.9.16-ubuntu10.04-powerpc.tar.bz2

Cheers,
Christian
